WaterFurnace Introduces Communicating Aurora Controls in Console Units

WaterFurnace_ConsolesFORT WAYNE, Ind. — WaterFurnace International, Inc.’s Envision Console and Envision Low Sill Console are now available with communicating Aurora controls.

Aurora controls offer full two-way communication between components, advanced operating logic and robust troubleshooting capabilities. The Aurora Base Control features a microprocessor control to sequence all components during operation for optimum performance. In addition, the ABC provides easy-to-use troubleshooting features, including fault lights, onboard diagnostics and a handheld Aurora Interface Diagnostic tool.

Also available in console units is the Aurora Universal Protocol Converter. Designed to incorporate the advanced features, performance and controls of WaterFurnace Aurora-based heat pumps into commercial building automation systems, the Aurora UPC seamlessly communicates with Aurora boards and converts the Modbus protocol to BACnet MS/TP, LON or OpenN2 protocol. The module provides access to unit sensors, relay operations and faults and allows individual unit configuration – all without the need to manually access the heat pump. A portable touch-screen interface gives a technician full access to equipment status, parameter values, temperatures and humidity sensing, as well as access to alarm and trend history.
