Return of the Mach

After more than a year of supply-chain challenges, Reliable Controls has released an updated version of its popular MACH-ProView LCD controller.  

“The MACH-ProView LCD is a freely programmable BACnet building controller and BACnet operator display that provides attractive, customisable, high-resolution graphical interfaces facility managers can use to access, monitor, and control the comfort and energy performance of any space,” the firm says.  

In the northern spring of 2021, in the midst of launching an entirely new generation of hardware, Reliable Controls made a pivot to redesign the MACH-ProView LCD after learning one of the processors it depended on was no longer available. 

Redesigning the MACH-ProView LCD gave the company an opportunity to improve controller performance in several meaningful ways, with a new processor, new memory, and other revisions.  

“Start-up time is almost half that of the previous version of the controller,” the firm says. “Users can switch themes 10 times faster; and EQUIPMENTview – a customisable screen view that lets users display and access objects on the LCD – performs much more efficiently. 

 
Many Reliable Controls team members played a critical role in overcoming supply-chain challenges and making the redesign of the MACH-ProView LCD a success. “I am very proud of the hardware, firmware, and software teams’ ability to pivot projects and take on huge uncertainty to deliver a revised product that is even better than before—in as short a time as possible,” said James Puritch, vice president of R&D at Reliable Controls. “Our plan was made possible due only to the tireless efforts of our purchasing team to secure parts and build a new product pipeline.” 

 
Around the same time in 2021, global supply-chain issues forced a halt in the manufacturing of non-LCD models of the MACH-ProView, as well. Reliable Controls is pleased to announce all six models of the controller are now available for order through the company’s global network of factory-certified Authorized Dealers: 

 
“The MACH-ProView empowers people to interact with their space in a simple, seamless, unique way. When supply-chain and raw material constraints disrupted our ability to produce it, we knew we could not stand by and wait for things to return to normal,” said Reliable Controls executive vice president of sales Levi Tully. “I could not be prouder of the tremendous effort our team devoted to doing whatever it took to get that power and experience back in the hands of users worldwide. A truly outstanding effort.”

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
