Telkonet launches EcoSmart VRF Controller, maximizes energy efficiency for multi-room buildings
Automation solution provider Telkonet announced it will soon introduce a new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) controller, which can further optimize heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to maximize energy efficiency.

Growth in the VRF market segment is expected to grow over the coming years, especially in North America where construction is increasing, as is demand for energy efficiency. New VRF HVAC systems from the likes of Trane and Friedrich offer a savings of 30 to 40 percent in energy costs. As HVAC technology evolves, so must the controls.

Telkonet’s EcoSmart intelligent automation platform is supported by a full-suite of IoT-connected devices that provide in-depth energy usage information and analysis, allowing building operators to reduce energy expenses.

The EcoSmart VRF Controller can be integrated with new VRF, VRV and VRP systems to provide in-room control of heating and air-conditioning. It operates digitally, versus traditional relay, and is compatible with ZigBee controls.

Together, the EcoSmart VRF Controller and the remote user interface components form a wirelessly controllable thermostat with over 125 configurable settings used to control the efficiency of HVAC systems for optimized energy savings.

The EcoSmart intelligent automation platform helps multi-room properties better manage energy costs by providing in-depth energy usage analysis that allows facilities managers to develop and deploy targeted solutions to reduce energy consumption and improve operational efficiency. This is achieved using a full suite of IoT-connected wireless products, from intelligent thermostats to occupancy sensors. Most users see a 20-45 percent reduction in energy costs.

The EcoSmart VRF Controller is one of only a few devices able to integrate with newer VRF systems and provides the opportunity to interface with the full EcoSuite platform. Because it is digital and operated wirelessly, less hardware is involved from an installation standpoint.
