Controller Allows Facilities to Regulate Water Temperature

Aug. 18, 2015

Powers, a Watts Water Technologies company, offers the IntelliStation—a smart delivery system that allows managers of commercial and institutional facilities such as hospitals, hotels, universities and multi-family residences to ensure safe and efficient tempered water delivery. It provides fast-response digital temperature regulation of domestic water within 2°F, even during low- and zero-demand periods.

The IntelliStation is easily configurable in the field and does not require the use of proprietary software. A smart controller with a 3.5-in. full-color touch-screen interface displays nearly 200 combinations of critical data, including mixed outlet temperature and mixed and return flow, as well as energy consumption. The IntelliStation also features a sanitization mode that allows for high-temperature system purges to address bacteria and controls a recirculation pump to optimize loop performance.

Integrated in a BAS using BACnet and Modbus protocols, the lead-free IntelliStation supports integrated building management and allows for safe and consistent delivery of hot water on demand. As part of an ASSE-compliant water distribution system that includes point-of-use mixing valves at each fixture in the plumbing system, the IntelliStation provides optimal control for maintaining the water temperature selected for a facility.
