Johnson Controls Inc., Building Efficiency: Chiller Control Panel
June 27, 2011
The York® CYK Chillers have been made more flexible with the addition of the Quantum™ LX control panel. The control panel meets the needs of a variety of applications, including heat pumps, water chilling, radiators, ice thermal storage, and process cooling. The intuitive control features a touch-screen interface and multiple language support, including English, Chinese, Italian, and French. In addition, the panel’s virtual human machine interface (HMI) allows the user to access panel information remotely. The user can interact with the chiller from the control room, boardroom, or other remote locations using a computer or smart phone with Intranet/Internet connectivity. The panel’s flash memory requires no battery backup. Software versions can be easily upgraded using a USB flash drive. According to the manufacturer, chiller serviceability also improves with the Quantum LX control panel. In addition to downloadable trending for better history and data collection and the ability to freeze screens for improved troubleshooting, the panel offers historic data stored at longer intervals and diagnostic features that include a protocol analyzer, I/O boards, and data capture.
