75F introduces the Smart NodeTM equipment controller for flexible building automation with software defined benefits.
Building Intelligence company 75F announced the 75® Smart NodeTM equipment controller, a first-of-its-kind product design combining onboard OLED display, eleven I/O interface ports, daisy-chained 24V power, wireless-mesh networking, and software-defined hardware capabilities. The smart node is part of 75F's vertically-integrated suite of smart building products for HVAC and lighting automation, delivering energy-efficiency, indoor air quality and healthy, comfortable indoor environments.
Sensing and control for a range of equipment/applications
The 75F Smart Node controls single-stage equipment, working with your existing HVAC equipment brands and system profiles as a quick-install retrofit or a new-build solution. In addition to multiple sensor inputs, the 75F Smart Node monitors and controls terminal equipment, including air handling units, economiser damper actuators, VAV with reheat systems, smart dampers, heat pumps, hot water mixing valves, energy meters, lighting panels, LED lights, etc.
Software-defined hardware configuration adjusts to your systems and workflows
Using dynamic application assignment, where software assigns hardware profiles, the 75F Smart Node accommodates different equipment and processes. No need for a specific controller model/SKU for each application. No programming required. And, you get remotely- delivered updates and improvements.
OLED display and backlit text simplify installation and troubleshooting
The display elements change contextually, based on the equipment profile and application processes. For example, when controlling an airflow damper, percent open, room temperature, and airflow temperatures would display. The technician can see live performance data, setup initial configurations such as zone pairing, and override controls to diagnose equipment problems. Illuminated text confirms ports in use for applications.
The 75F® Smart NodeTM equipment controller offers flexible building automation with a software-defined application assignment across a wide range of HVAC equipment profiles, onboard OLED display with contextual elements, backlit text for the eleven I/O interface ports, wireless-mesh networking with the 75F® Central Control UnitTM and devices, bluetooth pairing, daisy-chained 24V power, and easy installation.
Part of an easily-deployed, vertically-integrated smart building automation system
The 75F Smart Node uses secure, proprietary 900Mhz communications with the 75F® Central Control UnitTM (CCU), serving as a field controller, which also offers direct equipment control. Manage your entire system from the 75F® FacilisightTM suite of web and mobile apps. Remote monitor and manage, along with scheduling of changes across hundreds of buildings with a single click.
Removing the barriers to building automation
Traditional building controls systems are overbuilt and require extensive resources to install, set-up, custom program and maintain – creating high costs of acquisition and ownership. 75F's vertically integrated suite of wireless sensors, equipment controllers and cloud-based software deliver a single pane of glass management across applications. With easy out-of-the-box functionality, no programming is required.
75F is an IoT and machine Learning company taking a fresh approach to HVAC, lighting and controls in commercial buildings. Founded in 2012, 75F offers data-driven, proactive, predictive building intelligence and controls. 75F has delivered hundreds of energy-efficient, comfortable and healthy spaces.
