Geofinity Manufacturing Inc. (“Geofinity”) is pleased to announce that the Company has recently been awarded the AHR 2012 Innovation Award in the Building Automation Category for the “ORB” Heat Pump Controller. These highly-celebrated and prominent industry awards are given each year to recognize the most innovative HVACR products showcased at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR ExpoŽ). The competition is jointly sponsored by the International Exposition Company (IEC), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI).

The ORB technology is a “patent pending” fully integrated equipment intelligence system offering complete operating, monitoring, control and diagnostics capabilities. It performs the functionality of a total system management and reporting platform that provides real-time data trending and analysis, whether on-site or via e-mail or website information transfer.

Rick Cox, President of Geofinity stated, “Smart thermostats and building automation systems claim they control and monitor equipment, however, without the integration of such ‘intelligence’ actually being built directly into the equipment, absolute confidence in system performance and optimization is impossible – the ORB is the answer. With this technology we have revolutionized the future path of product development by demonstrating the critical need to design and manufacture HVAC equipment that possesses internal intelligent controls located directly within the systems.”

“It is a highly informative and beneficial technological advancement for the consumer – the ORB provides real-time calculation of KwH consumption, COP, EER, and CO2 emissions. This ensures an end-user will always know that the system is operating at the highest performance and efficiency possible. With off-site real-time troubleshooting information provided directly to the contractor and the manufacturer (Geofinity) via e-mail reporting, the owner is also offered significant savings in terms of equipment servicing costs. The enhanced reporting gives the contractor the ability to call the end-user to notify them of a service requirement before the end-user even knows they have a problem. This reduces travel time - the typical need for multiple site visits to diagnose and repair equipment is eliminated – and furthermore, a service technician will then be able to arrive to site with the necessary parts and tools in hand to solve any conditions that can arise. This combination of features offers an end-user significant financial benefit and further provides real peace of mind,” added Sean Piekaar, National Sales Manager.
