We are very pleased to announce the release of ClimateTalk Version 2.0, which now includes profiles for zone controls and water heaters. The new application profiles help the HVAC industry stay at the forefront of the Connected Home and enable digital communication, plug and play installation, and interoperability of new devices on the existing ClimateTalk network, which previously supported HVAC systems.

“The ability of the ClimateTalk Alliance to develop new industry standards offers unlimited possibilities for advanced control and differentiation of solutions and is a testament to the potential open standards has to change our industry,” says Ron Bartos, Director of Electronics and Water Systems, A.O. Smith Corporate Technology Center.

ClimateTalk Version 2.0 is backward compatible with Version 1.0 devices and includes capabilities for expanded node count and support for up to five zones or water heaters on a single network.  The ClimateTalk network architecture has also been advanced to support the next phase of development, including wireless nodes and solutions leveraging industry standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® and Zigbee® protocols.

“The ClimateTalk zone profile gives us the ability to match the capacity of the HVAC system to the demand load of the home, providing optimum comfort and maximum energy savings,” says Dick Foster, President of ZONEFIRST.  “The plug and play capabilities of ClimateTalk make communicating zone controls attractive for both legacy and communicating HVAC system installations.” 

“With an open standard and engagement in the Alliance we are able to ensure the standards meet our needs and offer advanced zoning solutions to our customers at a fraction of the cost of going it alone,” says Mike Reilly, V.P. of marketing for EWC Controls.
