How Direct Digital Control Can Benefit Your Business

Pneumatic systems are widely accepted as one of the most efficient and effective temperature control solutions in commercial and industrial grade HVAC. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t tons of room to improve. Pneumatic systems are rife with individual indicators and sensors, which frequently leads to inaccurate readings and thus overall far less efficiency than you could be getting.

DDC systems are directly integrated into pneumatic systems and run consistent system diagnostics and protocols that streamline the pneumatic system. This results in finer-tuned controls, far more efficient system operation, and can end up saving you tons on cost. They also can provide vital information to maintenance teams, helping to identify risks and problems early on.

DDC Allows for Intelligent HVAC System Usage

Adding DDC to an existing HVAC system can better allow for precision.

A few of the ways that DDC optimizes your HVAC system include:

  • Zone-specific comfort
  • System coordination
  • Scheduling for holidays and work hours
  • Trend monitoring
  • Load shedding
  • Electronic temperature sensors
  • Computer-based data collection
  • Economizer control
  • Reading airflow rates
  • Remote adjustment of parameters

Sensor data can send alarms and notifications to alert service personnel. If any of these are aspects of your pneumatic system that need to be addressed, talk to one of our credentialed technicians.
