New technology has had a significant impact on the zoning market in the last five years. This roundup provides a sampling of the latest products and systems available from industry suppliers to assist contractors in zoning system design, installation, and service.
Alan Manufacturing offers zone control dampers with wireless controls attached at the factory. The dampers come complete with a transformer 120 to 24 V. The featured damper has a power-open/power-close motor and an indicator light that glows green when the damper is open and red when the damper is closed. The zone control dampers also come with the Wi-Stat wireless thermostat, which is available in programmable or nonprogrammable versions. Other available mounted controls are from Jackson Systems. These controls can be combined with the PIRO-Sensing and occupancy controller.
