Brossard, QC, December 8, 2015 - Distech Controls, an innovation leader in energy management solutions, today introduced the latest addition to the company's ECLYPSE™ Connected IP and Wi-Fi product series: the ECLYPSE Connected VAV Controller series, successfully distributing IP connectivity throughout buildings to the terminal equipment level. This new offering includes both ECLYPSE ECY-VAV Connected VAV Controllers and ECY-VAV-PoE Connected VAV Controllers (models with Power over Ethernet).
As part of the ECLYPSE Connected IP and Wi-Fi product series, these controllers offer empowered connectivity, with building management systems now able to leverage and converge with a building’s IT infrastructure to share a common IP network. The ECLYPSE Connected VAV Controller series allow for the choice between wired IP and Wi-Fi – or a combination of both on a same controller – so as to easily tailor implementation throughout the building to suit the available IT infrastructure, architecture and layouts, minimizing impact on the building. This results in reduced costs and improved BMS performance.
The ECLYPSE Connected VAV Controller series is designed to control any variable air volume box application “out of the box” with preloaded, configurable applications and embedded ENVYSION (web-based graphic design and visualization interface) Viewer, for local hosting of application graphics. These productivity enhancing tools, embedded directly into the ECLYPSE Connected VAV Controllers, ease and improve the installation and configuration process, thereby enabling significant time and cost savings. BTL listed as a BACnet Building Controller (B-BC), the controllers also feature embedded schedules, alarms and trend logs. As part of the ECLYPSE Connected IP and Wi-Fi product series, these controllers were also developed so as to use standard web services protocols, facilitating data exchange and providing unique opportunities for value added services.
In addition, the Connected VAV Controllers support the company’s Smart Room Control solution, a unified system for the control of HVAC room terminal equipment, lighting, and shades/sunblind. By choosing ECLYPSE VAV controllers, one can bring IP-based connectivity to this unique and modular solution, resulting in the highest levels of comfort for occupants, as well as operational cost savings.
“ECLYPSE controllers offer greater connectivity options at the edge of the IT infrastructure which, in turn, enable building owners and facility managers to offer unique services to tenants, and making BMS part of everyday life,” said Trevor Palmer, Vice President Products and Marketing, Distech Controls. “We are thrilled to expand our Connected IP and Wi-Fi product series, so as to distribute IP further throughout facilities and to provide the infrastructure beyond traditional building efficiency systems,” added Palmer.
The ECLYPSE ECY-VAV Connected VAV Controllers and ECY-VAV-PoE Connected VAV Controllers will be on display at the upcoming AHR Expo in Orlando Florida. Distech Controls invites those attending to visit booth, #1242, to learn more about all the company’s latest innovations.
