KMC Press Releases AHR Expo 2012
FlexStat Control of Copeland Scroll Digital Compressor
16 January 2012 Sidney, Ohio and New Paris, Indiana
KMC Controls announced
today that its FlexStat™ controller/sensor, with integral Copeland
Scroll Digital™ compressor control, is now approved for use with the
3–15 ton range of Copeland Scroll Digital compressors. KMC has
received manufacturer’s approval of special models of the popular
FlexStat controllers for use in commercial air conditioning
applications that have a Copeland Scroll Digital compressor installed
to provide variable capacity.
The KMC controller may
be applied in most single or multi-stage DX compressor unitary
applications including RTU or split commercial and residential unitary
applications, heat pumps, chiller, or commercial refrigeration
KMC Controls and Titus HVAC Collaborate to Simplify Air Distribution
New, Fully Configured VAV Terminal Units Lowers Costs and Increases Ease of Installation
– AHR Expo (Booth #3735) January 23-25, 2012 – KMC Controls, a standout
in BACnet building automation, and Titus HVAC, the leader in air
management, announce a joint collaboration to simplify air distribution
through the introduction of the Titus Alpha Controller line.
collaboration, select digital variable air volume (VAV) terminal units
from Titus are now available with integrated and Titus-branded BACnet
Applications Specific Controllers designed and manufactured by KMC
Controls. As a result, the new Alpha line advances air distribution
using VAV by lowering installation costs and increasing ease of
installation, startup and commissioning.
BACnet Offering Extended to Wireless via EnOcean
16 January 2012 New Paris, Indiana and Montreal, Quebec
The powerful line of
BACnet building automation products from KMC Controls has now been
augmented to include wireless sensors. These new sensors employ
EnOcean energy-harvesting wireless technology. The self-powered
sensors communicate to KMC’s award-winning BACnet network through an
EnOcean-to-BACnet gateway powered by CAN2GO (www.can2go.com).
This approach saves
project time, labor, and cost by eliminating the wiring from room
sensors to the controller network. Further, the approach
mitigates the maintenance costs of other wireless technologies as there
are no batteries to replace. In addition, the new sensors can be
mounted to alternate building materials such as stone, metal, or glass,
thereby providing for greater design freedom.
Modular Control Solutions for UFAD, VAV, and Hydronic Applications
16 January 2012New Paris, Indiana
KMC Controls is now
shipping a new line of modular BACnet controllers and associated
actuators designed for quick installation of Under Floor Air
Distribution (UFAD), Variable Air Volume (VAV), and hydronic heat
The BAC-5841 and -5842
are native BACnet, fully programmable, direct digital
controllers. They have been factory pre-programmed and
pre-configured for use in UFAD applications. They have modular input
and output jacks to simplify field wiring, using standard Ethernet
cables to connect input sensors. KMC HSO series cables, with modular
plugs, connect outputs. These outputs are typically connected to KMC
MEP-4042 and -4842 proportional actuators with integral modular jacks.
The controllers can
provide up to five individual zones of control using KMC wall sensors.
They are pre-configured to provide five cooling zones. Two outputs may
also be changed from cooling to heating. Depending on cable lengths and
power wiring used, up to eight actuators may be driven in each chain,
and each chain can be individually tied to any of five zone sensors.
These models can also be used with UFAD diffuser actuators manufactured
by KMC Controls for specific OEMs.
FlexStat Now Available with CO2 Sensing & IP Connectivity
12 December 2011 New Paris, Indiana
FlexStat represents a
line of integrated BACnet controllers and sensors from KMC
Controls. It has gained significant market share and can be used
for(1) standalone control of common mechanical equipment (through
built-in programming), (2) small building automation, or (3) as part of
a larger BACnet network.
KMC Controls has now
introduced significant enhancements to this product line with greater
connectivity options, expanded sensing capability, and improved
The new 12x series of
FlexStat look, on the outside, like the existing line of BAC-10x
series, but they offer inputs for six external sensors (instead of
three) and advanced firmware that gives options such as for a remote
space temperature sensor (including remote only, averaging, highest, or
Other model options
include BACnet communication over Ethernet, over IP, over IP as Foreign
Device, as well as over standard MS/TP.
