Increase efficiency with precise control

Properly sized damper actuators use outside air better to improve RTU performance.​

Reliable damper performance and monitoring damper position are key to optimizing free cooling and energy efficiency.  OpenAir damper actuators are 100% factory tested for optimum performance and certified for use with the Climatix RT solution.  The compact size is over 30% smaller than comparable products for easier retrofit installation in limited space. 

Air quality and efficiency enablers.

The right sensors matter for air quality to allow for optimized demand-controlled ventilation. As part of the Climatix RTU solution, air quality sensors can generate energy and cost savings exceeding 20%.  These recommended sensors have been tested together with Climatix RT as a proven solution for optimized performance. ​

Sensors for air temperatures at every stage and airflow monitoring help ensure complete optimization of rooftop units. Installation is very easy and can be optimally adapted to the situation.

Ensure healthy indoor environments​

It's important that a building’s mechanical systems are properly maintained with consideration to ventilation, airflow, and humidity, to ensure healthy and productive indoor environments. Monitoring air quality in real time and using reliable technology to ventilate buildings efficiently creates a safe environment to live and work during a pandemic and beyond. ​ Eliminate or minimize indoor air re-circulation and maximize fresh outdoor air to the extent possible.

Climatix RT manages fresh air levels based on a variety of needs.

Automatic indoor air quality maintenance​

Enhance indoor air quality via demand-controlled ventilation by monitoring carbon dioxide levels and increasing fresh air inside when it gets too high. 

 

Fresh air purge to boost outside air − inside​

Enable maximum fresh air intake into buildings without using mixed or return air. This application was designed in response to COVID-19 to improve ventilation and reduce air contamination and adhere to ASHRAE 62.1 guidelines. All buildings are not the same, which is why you get the flexibility to initiate a purge on your terms. ​

 

Title 24-compliant economization​

Climatix RT has a built-in economizer that eliminates the extra costs of a separate controller to manage fresh air intake to reduce or eliminate mechanical cooling during ideal temperature conditions.
