A Leap Forward For Reliable

A Leap Forward For Reliable

Reliable Controls has introduced a new generation of building controllers following the launch of the RC-FLEXair advanced VAV controller.

The freely programmable RCFLEXair is a BACnet building controller designed for a wide range of variable air volume and room control applications. According to the company, it is the culmination of two years and tens of thousands of hours of research and development. 

Reliable Controls’ James Puritch had lofty goals when he began developing the new family of products. 

“The RC-FLEXair is the first of our RC-FLEX products, all built around dual-Ethernet connection architecture and multicore processors,” says Puritch. “We’ve taken our 30plus years of technology and embedded it into this new hardware and firmware platform. The RC-FLEXair is highly performant for today’s building automation system needs, and built to accommodate tomorrow’s advancements.”

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
