Distech Controls Introduces HORYZON-C

IP-Based capacitive and multi-touch colour display

January 31, 2018

[Lyon, France, January 31, 2017] - Distech Controlsan Acuity Brands company, and innovation leader in energy management solutions, today introduced HORYZON-C, an IP-based capacitive and multi-touch color display that allows users to quickly manage an HVAC system’s operating parameters. These parameters include monitoring values, equipment and system status, as well as view active system alarms to perform diagnostics and take corrective actions such as overriding a sensor, pump or fan, or changing a setpoint.

One Project - One Interface
HORYZON-C distributes IP connectivity within a building, successfully bringing it to the graphical user interface level. Communicating over IP for increased speed, HORYZON-C integrates a high-end graphical engine, allowing the device to display any advanced HTML5 webpage.
This, in turn, empowers users with the ability to develop graphics with ENVYSION, Distech Controls’ responsive HTML5 web-based graphic design and visualisation interface, by creating interactive or using existing interfaces generated from ECLYPSE, HVAC Controller Series and EC-Net systems for a fast deployment.

Quick and Easy Installation
The HORYZON-C display easily plugs in and an intuitive setup assistant allows for a quick setup, while several productivity-enhancing tools help to increase installation and commissioning efficiency by more than 25%. Smoothly navigate on-screen functions using the slightest touch on HTML5 webpages and seamlessly zoom-in and zoom-out for optimum viewing.

Real Time Notification of Alarms
In addition, the HORYZON-C versatile alarm management allows users to configure optional acoustic or visual triggers for instant notification of alarms. This allows on-site managers to take corrective actions faster, while the integrated buzzer can eliminate the need for additional devices.

“Our HORYZON-C display is another innovative example of Distech Control’s unified approach to building management systems,” said Trevor Palmer, Vice President - Controls Product Management. “From mechanical rooms to occupant interfaces, our customers can quickly and easily monitor their facility’s HVAC spaces from a single point while customizing it for their operations and usage.”
