We thank our hosts Lynxspring, Stromquist Company, especially Stacie McCammon, Bill Jones, Seãn Johnson, and Rob Allen; our two amazing MC’s Marc Petock and Kimberly Brown, and of course our sponsors — that all together, made this event such a resounding success. The standing room only audience witnessed HVAC history in the making, as the Young Guns were recognized and H. Michael Newman and George Thomas joined Werner Buck and Jerry Frank in the ControlTrends Awards Hall of Fame.
We are already began the planning for next year’s ControlTrends Awards event in Orlando, FL. While we made every effort to accommodate everyone’s schedule, there were still those that were unable to attend because of conflicting schedules, which leads us to consider the possibility of Sunday evening. Please respond in the comments section, what you believe to be the optimal time and whether or not Sunday evening, 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, would be the most suitable time frame of all.

Hear what Erich had to say about the company philosophy that makes KMC Controls different from most controls companies, as well as, what makes Simply VAV such a special VAV controls solution. Click here for a specification sheet on this easy to use VAV controller.
Simple to set up, with no software needed, this controller is powerful and functions equally as well as a stand-alone solution or the VAV controller of choice on a BACnet full-blown control system.
The SimplyVAV series of controllers are an easy and unique approach to operating a wide variety of VAV terminal units. The integrated actuators, internal airflow sensors, and wide variety of application programs make these BACnet Application Specific controllers ideal for either new or retrofit installations.
The controllers feature simple, menu driven setup choices when used with a SimplyVAV digital sensor. No special programming skills or software tools are required to choose applications, enter setpoints, set network addressing,and balance airflow. All options can be set by using only an STE-8001 sensor, which can be installed as the permanent room sensor or temporarily connected as a technician’s service tool.
All models are BACnet Application Specific Controllers that are ready to connect to a BACnet MS/TP network. Device instance, MAC address, and baud rate are set from an STE-8001 without special software.
The KMC Simply VAV Controller is sure to be in the hunt for an Award at the 2014 ControlTrends Awards.
