Telkonet Inc.: Energy Management Thermostat
March 10, 2008
Enhancements have been made to the SS5000 energy management thermostat. The new design, Version 4.5 model, increases the overall flexibility of the new thermostat, particularly its compatibility with a far wider range of PTAC and fan coil systems. The core has been completely re-engineered to use a flash-based CPU, which can be easily upgraded in the field to meet the control requirements of diverse systems. This ensures a high level of future-proofing, while guaranteeing its ease of integration with new product designs as they emerge, including new wireless mesh technologies. The thermostat also operates across a larger voltage range, both ac and dc, further enhancing its interworking with third-party equipment. With a data rate nearly 100 times faster than the previous 4.0 version, and a dedicated serial interface for computer control and configuration, this thermostat offers improved communications across the entire energy management system, an important feature for energy-efficiency monitoring and accurate data analysis, says the company. The unit offers an extensive degree of field-customization, enhancing the speed and ease of installation. Settings can be field-customized on screen or in more detail with the SmartView software.
