Delta has announced that it is showcasing a comprehensive suite of building automation technologies at the 2020 AHR Expo booth in Orlando, Fla. Under the theme "Smarter Buildings, Smarter Cities," the booth will showcase how building and city managers can improve operating efficiency, reduce energy usage and enhance the occupant experience by combining Delta's solutions, which include building automation from subsidiaries Delta Controls Inc. and LOYTEC; surveillance systems from subsidiary VIVOTEK, as well as productivity-enhancing lighting from subsidiary Amerlux. Delta Controls' cutting-edge O3 Sensor Hub 2.0 – an IoT-enabled sensor featuring temperature/humidity sensing, occupancy detection and wireless integration – is a winner of the AHR Expo Innovation Award in the building automation category.
"Intelligent cities rely on effortless communication between devices and systems at every level while next-generation buildings require smart building control, surveillance, lighting and other related solutions", said Bill Lo, general manager of Delta's Building Automation Business Group. He added, "In recent years, Delta has successfully acquired state-of-the-art companies to strengthen its smart building automation capabilities. Our wide breadth of solutions and expertise shows what is truly possible for smart infrastructure. The seamless connectivity and integration between our technologies will change the way contractors, facility managers and municipalities view IoT."
Visitors to the booth will enter a simulated cityscape and follow a road to learn how various solutions fit into Delta's smart buildings and smart cities vision. Among the booth demonstrations is a smart, streetlight-supported EV charging station that showcases how Delta brings intelligence to commercial and public spaces. Amerlux's LED lighting integrates with VIVOTEK security cameras and a Delta AC mini level 2 EV charger. Supported by Delta's advanced building control software, the system adjusts lighting based on user movement and the time of day. Charger access can be monitored by the system through the VIVOTEK camera, which scans license plates or other identification to activate the charger for authorized vehicles.
Solutions on display at Delta's AHR booth #1161 include:
Delta Controls will showcase the O3 Sensor Hub 2.0, which features a compact design that bundles multiple sensors into one device. Designed to enhance occupant experience, this new solution integrates a variety of sensors – temperature, humidity, occupancy and light – to revolutionize how buildings respond to tenant needs. The system acts as an IoT hub to turn on projectors and TVs, dim lighting and adjust air flow at the building and room level, among other functions. This reduces setup time and improves the rooms' appearance by eliminating multiple sensor installations and locations with a single sensor hub.
The GEN2 bypass system, a supplement to Delta's robust line of Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), will debut at AHR Expo. A truly smart bypass featuring Delta Controls' enteliWEB applications, the GEN2 can seamlessly integrate into a building automation system. Built in BACnet and BACnet IP and including a full function enteliZONE controller, the GEN2 can be configured and operated with ease from anywhere. Its intelligent functions allow for easy setup, reduced wiring and more streamlined control of VFDs.
Indoor Air Quality; Fans and Thermal Management
Developed with Delta's DC motor technology, Delta Breez bathroom ventilation fans deliver substantial energy savings, boast superior reliability and are virtually silent compared to typical AC motor alternatives. Booth visitors will experience the latest enhancements, including color-changing LED lights and edge-lit designs for enriched ambiance and aesthetics within residential environments. To complement its existing IAQ portfolio, Delta will introduce a new line of DC motor ceiling fans that provide energy savings of up to 70 percent versus their AC motor counterparts.
Delta's commercial DC motor technology will be showcased through its Electronically Communicated (EC) fans, which feature an integrated AC-to-DC inverter and magnet rotor. Delivering significant power savings as compared to AC motor fans while maintaining compatibility with AC sources, Delta's Commercial Refrigerator Fans and Motors can offer a high-performing and cost-saving solution for refrigerated transports, cold storage, cooling centers, purifiers and more. Powered by DC brushless fans, Delta's Cabinet Thermal Solutions are known for their low noise, energy efficiency and reliability. Rated for indoor and outdoor use, these solutions include heat exchangers, air conditioners, thermoelectric coolers and heaters.
Security and Surveillance
Supported by advanced H.265 compressing and image identification technologies, VIVOTEK surveillance solutions are ideal for remote management. Its thermal cameras can quickly identify fluctuations in equipment and temperature-sensitive areas such as mechanical rooms, rooftop HVAC, and data centers. Similarly, its license plate recognition cameras ensure continuous monitoring of building visitors and can be used for access control for authorized personnel.
Tunable white lighting from Amerlux improves concentration and cognitive functions, while enhancing health and well-being. Integration with smart controls allow light fixtures to respond to their surroundings and serve as data hubs for supervising building operations, charging stations, security cameras and utilities. At the booth, Amerlux will showcase several architectural grade, LED lighting fixtures that are ideal for commercial and retail spaces, including the SPEQ family of track heads, Linea family of LED pendants and Rook 350, which reimagines the Hornet HP Downlight in a popular pendant form.
