03-18-13 What's NewThe Luxaire® Acclimate™ zoning Communicating Control provides up to six zones of temperature and humidity control using a single zone panel. The high-definition, touch screen is designed to be used as a master and a zoning sensor and offers a choice of three communicating sensors — touch-screen sensor that controls a zone’s temperature and humidity levels, zone display that allows for temperature and fan adjustment, and zone sensor. Damper flexibility includes power open/power close dampers (required when not using a bypass damper) and normally open and normally closed dampers. The zoning control also enables fan programming by zone. Airflow adjustments can be made by zone to compensate for ductwork variability. The zoning Communicating Control communicates with all key components in a home-comfort system. The control offers a simplified 4-wire plug-and-play design that eliminates time-consuming wiring and system checking at installation. An autoconfiguration feature automatically recognizes and configures new compatible components. The touch-screen display can be configured to give homeowners the level of information they desire, including basic or detailed fault alerts with the contractor’s contact information prominently displayed. The tool also provides maintenance reminders to the homeowners.
