Intesis has recently launched the 700 Series Air, a groundbreaking concept that combines interfaces for multiple HVAC Brands and Building Automation protocols in the same hardware. This new product enables users to pair different combinations of HVAC brands and protocols using the Intesis MAPS configuration tool, a process called late configuration.

Intesis 700 Series Air is the common platform for HVAC control and energy efficiency

Three gateways have been released under that concept, providing different communication capabilities:

  • The IN770-AIR enables the integration of multiple HVAC brands into BACnet, Modbus, KNX, or home automation systems.
  • The IN771-AIR allows the integration of Panasonic VRF units into BACnet, Modbus, KNX, or home automation systems.
  • The IN776-MHI, on the other hand, supports Mitsubishi Heavy Industries HVAC systems.
  • The 700 Series Air products offer a variety of benefits:

    • Stock-friendly. Multiple protocol combinations for each hardware.
    • Multiple indoor unit control with direct access to the outdoor unit bus.
    • Easy to set up with Intesis MAPS.
    • High capacity, up to 128 indoor units depending on the model.
    • International and local certifications. Ready to be sold worldwide.
    • Robust and reliable gateways, developed with the support and collaboration of the HVAC makers.

    This new approach from Intesis to HVAC control reduces the number of order codes and increases configuration flexibility, making it easier for distributors to build stock and simplify order code management. Integrators can also configure their gateways with new applications using the Intesis MAPS configuration tool.

    One of the main values that the 700 Series Air is bringing to users is the ability to calculate the energy consumption of each indoor unit and enable integration into the BMS or control system for energy efficiency. By identifying which indoor units are consuming more energy than necessary, building managers can optimize their energy consumption, resulting in reduced energy bills and lower carbon emissions. The facility managers can identify units that may be malfunctioning or require maintenance, this can prevent costly repairs and downtime, as well as extend the lifespan of HVAC equipment.

    The 700 Series Air is a game changer in HVAC control, offering unparalleled configuration flexibility and energy efficiency. With this new product, HMS Networks is revolutionizing the way HVAC systems are managed and controlled, providing a more user-friendly and sustainable solution for modern buildings.
