Sontay has been named as winner of the hotly contested Technical Innovation of the Year – Products Award at this year’s Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) Awards 2011.  Sontay’s SonNet wireless range of temperature and humidity sensors won the prestigious accolade at the Awards, which were held at the St John’s Hotel, Solihull on the 12th May 2011.

Sontay’s Managing Director, Trevor Palmer, says: “We are delighted to have won this award as we were up against stiff competition. SonNet leads the way, offering improved HVAC energy efficiency and lower fuel consumption in existing buildings. As well as offering more cost-effective control systems in new buildings. It is a reliable and low cost alternative to wired temperature and humidity sensors, broadening the market potential for integrators.”

The SonNet family of wireless sensing devices provide accurate measurement of temperature and relative humidity within a building and communicate these readings reliably to its control system. With self-healing tree topology, SonNet eliminates concerns over reception and reliability that are often associated with existing point-to-point wireless systems. Judges were impressed by this system’s self-diagnosis capability, and the fact that it is an easily retrofitted solution in existing buildings.

PlantPROCORESonNet consists of battery powered sensor nodes together with permanently powered network receivers and routers, and software. It is designed around a robust 2.4 GHz, 802.15.4 self-healing tree topology which eliminates the need for structural cabling during sensor installation for an HVAC control system. This enables faster and easier installation on new buildings, where project timescales for controls installation can often be extremely pressurised as well as cost savings of over 25% on total installed cost.

Sontay products and control solutions are designed to help improve building management system performance reduce energy and maintenance costs and increase occupant comfort levels.  For further information on the Sontay product range, please contact: sales@sontay.com.
