ControlTrends had the opportunity to visit with Barry Gordon, Senior Sales Engineer at ACI, who was excited to tell us about ACI’s new DLP Low Pressure Transmitter. The DLP Series is based on a piezoresistive, silicon sensing element which senses Differential Pressure and provides an analog output. The hinged cover on the DLP can be easily opened using the integrated locking tab on the side of the enclosure. This allows for easy access to the zero function and field selectable ranges and outputs. The DLP Series also includes an optional five digit, easy to read display which aids in initial setup/installation, troubleshooting, and local monitoring. The cord grip fitting provides strain relief and easy access to the color coded, spring loaded terminal blocks. Another well-engineered product from ACI!
ControlTalk NOW — Smart Buildings VideoCast for week ending July 3, 2016 brings attention to the people-side of the Buildings Automation industry while manning the vendor shows at two of the industry largest and most significant shows: 2016 Tridium Summit and the 2016 Realcomm/IBcon. Interviews with these Industry superstars: Intellastar’s Terry Casey; Johnson Controls’ Dimitri Papadopoulos; Hepta Systems’ Ted and Jason Houck; Page Southerland’s Tim Howell; Viconics’ Matt Krueger; Interactive Energy, LLC’s James Burtch; along with ACI’s Barry Gordon webinar and a product review of Honeywell’s Lyric thermostat.
Honeywell Lyric: Redefining What a Thermostat Can Do. Honeywell keeps coming up with cool stuff. Yes, thermostats are cool, because there are different shapes, sizes, colors, and apps. But, look at this video to see how Honeywell takes the cool thermostat to the next level and makes it practical. No need to worry about coming home and finding out your pipe burst or a leak turned into a flood. The Honeywell Lyric will let you know before problems get out of hand. I wonder what else they will hang onto their residential thermostat network?
Catching Up with Intellastar’s Terry Casey. Lots of great people and Smart Buildings Controls Experts at the 2016 RealComm/IBcon show. I got a chance to be the “in the field reporter” for Realcomm Conference Live, and one of the people I interviewed was Intellastar’s Terry Casey.
