MINNEAPOLIS — Through Daikin Applied’s annual ‘Ideas in Motion’ Roadshow, contractors, specifying engineers, and building owners at 18 stops across the country will receive live demonstrations and educational sessions on the company’s new technology platform, Intelligent Equipment™, and participate in discussions with experts on what the Internet of Things (IoT) means to the commercial building industry.

Harnessing the IoT in commercial HVAC equipment, Daikin Applied has embedded this technology within its new and legacy rooftop product lines, including Rebel, Maverick II and RoofPak, enabling machine-to-machine communication to improve efficiencies. Participants at select locations will also have an opportunity to earn continuing education unit (CEU) credits by attending these sessions.

The tour’s hands-on approach is popular with attendees; having the equipment and technology onsite can create a more substantial learning process than a classroom, webinar, or manual. One key aspect of the roadshow is that Daikin Applied experts can show participants there is more than one method of applying their systems and demonstrate a new way of doing things.

“Through advancements like Intelligent Equipment, HVAC systems are becoming more connected and more integrated than ever, making it critical to become educated about the Internet of Things and what it means to the HVAC industry,” said Paul Rauker, vice president of systems and controls at Daikin Applied. “The ‘Ideas in Motion’ Roadshow gives participants a head start in becoming proficient with the latest technology and helps prepare them for future jobs and projects.”

The Roadshow is currently running through May 14. To register for an event near you, visit www.daikinapplied.com/roadshow.php. For more information about Daikin Applied, visit www.daikinapplied.com.
