Technology Description

PRESTIGE is the new technology wireless VAV floor diffuser (10yrs battery life). It is a variable volume air terminal for use in raised floor air systems. It features an 18 gauge (1.3mm) galvanized steel catch pan assembly, with all interior features pre-painted flat black cast aluminum grille produces 360 degree omni-directional mixing air flow. A manually adjustable sliding damper allows occupants to limit maximum air flow. Ten (10) standard grille colors are available; custom colors and finishes can be provided to match architectural design. It requires no wired connectivity of any kind to function. Power is provided by an integrated high capacity battery, designed to facilitate normal operation in an office application for up to ten (10) years (projected). Thermostatic control is handled via Zigbee 2.4 GHz wireless signal to a separate Concentrator. The Concentrator is connected to a standard 24 VAC zone controller, and accepts a 0–10V cooling signal. Each Concentrator supports up to thirty-two (32) paired units.

 

It is designed for NC17. The wireless design eliminates the installation of hardware i.e. power transformer & additional wirings i.e. power & comm cables. Thus greatly reduces the installation cost (materials, labour, time) and need very little maintenance just vacuum the dust pan once every year for high traffic area or once every 5yrs for low traffic area. It takes seconds to install per floor diffuser, not expensive, not messy process and no disrupt building operation over an extended period of time many benefits using UFAD compare to the overhead VAV mixing system that requires unsightly & expensive overhead ductworks etc.
