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.
