Honeywell Packs Advanced Control Capabilities into the Compact New Spyder™ Controller - AHR Innovation Award - Honorable Mention
Advanced Control In The Body Of A Unitary Controller
MINNEAPOLIS, January 7, 2008 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today the availability of a new controller that adapts to air-handling needs rather than requiring contractors to step up to a more expensive model. New Honeywell Spyder™ Controllers offer the flexible programming that was previously only available on plant controllers, enabling contractors to utilize a smaller, less-expensive controller while saving installation, programming and servicing time.
“No two situations are alike,” notes Larry Andriunas, Honeywell Sr. Product Manager. “From programming to the large number of inputs and outputs, Honeywell Spyder controllers adapt to needs of the contractor. Almost any piece of equipment can be used with Spyder, so contractors simply determine what they need for their specific application and then program Spyder to get it done.”
Everything about Honeywell Spyder is built for contractor ease-of-use. Removable terminal strips and color-coded input/output labels greatly simplify installation and troubleshooting. “Contractors will really like the removable terminal strips,” explains Andriunas. “They put an end to tough wiring in tight or hard-to-reach spaces. If you don’t like smashing your knuckles or working from the top of a ladder — and who does — you’ll enjoy working with Spyder.”
Spyder controllers also feature Honeywell’s Adaptive Integral Algorithm (AIA) Control, the most accurate device available for space-control applications. AIA reduces overshoot and ensures that customer comfort is achieved quickly. It also saves actuator wear by reducing the number of times it repositions, increasing the life of the actuator.
“Another terrific aspect of Spyder is the number of features that are built right in,” adds Andriunas. “For example, Honeywell Spyder controllers come with an internal DC power supply. Before, contractors had the additional expense and wiring time of adding an external transformer, but Spyder has the power supply all set to go with no added wiring.” Spyder also features an internal real-time clock, eliminating the need to add a separate timing device. And an optional integrated actuator saves installation time and ensures that the correct actuator is being used for variable air volume applications.
Andriunas is also quick to point out Honeywell Spyder’s adaptability. “Not only does Spyder offer considerable programming flexibility, it’s also designed to be the perfect control choice as systems evolve. With multiple inputs and outputs, built-in DC power and more, Spyder will give contractors cost-efficient control for years to come.”
