Quebec, Canada, November 26th, 2008 – Distech Controls awarded an Honorable Mention in the Green Building Category of the 2009 AHR Expo Innovation Awards Competition. Distech Controls obtained the special recognition for its wireless battery-less solution coupled with its DDC controllers.

Distech Controls' wireless battery-less solution offers multiple benefits for building automation, from time and cost reduction at installation or retrofits, to optimized tenant comfort. With wireless battery-less devices covering temperature, humidity, occupancy and lighting and applications ranging from office spaces to mechanical rooms, this wireless solution offers a truly viable option for greener buildings. The wireless battery-less devices are powered by different kinds of ambient energy, through energy harvesting, providing ecological compatibility and eliminating batteries, also making these devices virtually service-free. With wireless communication, the use of external wiring and cable materials (copper, plastics etc.) is also eliminated and one is not limited by materials for placement, allowing for quick and easy placement and relocation.

“This solution demonstrates that new products in building automation can do more than optimize control sequences to achieve greener buildings, and realize other important objectives in green buildings such as the elimination of harmful materials in our products, the diminished use of cabling and materials, as well as the preservation of the building envelope ‘’ said Etienne Veilleux, President and CEO of Distech Controls.

The AHR Expo Innovation Awards are given each year to recognize the most innovative and useful products showcased at the AHR Expo in nine separate categories: Building Automation, Cooling, Green Building, Heating, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Refrigeration, Software, Tools, and Ventilation. Products are judged on the basis on their design, creativity, energy efficiency, and value to the HVAC&R Industry.
