Online maintenance system for boilers helps predict maintenance needs from information a boiler continuously reads and records. The system automatically calls the manufacturer should a connected boiler go down, pinpointing which alarm occurs and providing a window into the cause. For more about MOM by Miura, click here .

Air handler/fan coil program calculates performance on existing AHUs and fan coils and also helps make equipment selections for new installations. The manufacturer offers several options on top or bottom access to filters and blowers, heat pump ready for DX units and high static pressure.

BACnet and LonTalk modules allow easier integration of manufacturer’s rooftop units into BAS. Installed by the factory or in the field, the modules are compatible with the industry’s most popular protocols. Both modules allow two-way communication for unit monitoring and control, diagnostics and remote troubleshooting. For more information about IMC modules from Lennox, click here .

Cooling-only and heat pump systems range from 6,000 to 45,000 Btu/h, are 13+ SEER and use R410A refrigerant. Variable-speed technology in the inverter-driven compressor creates a consistent indoor climate, and its slow running speed allows energy to be used more effectively.

Humidity control unit combines cooling and desiccant dehumidification technologies in one energy-efficient system to control dew point temperatures in hot, humid climates. It is ideal for use in structural drying, temporary humidity control in building construction, and condensation and corrosion control in surface preparation and coating applications.
