Wireless Temperature Sensing System from Johnson Controls Offers Greater Versatility
MILWAUKEE - - The TE-7700 Series RF Wireless Room Temperature Sensing System from Johnson Controls, Inc. is now available for both analog and zone bus interface, making it compatible with a wide range of digital controllers in HVAC applications.
This wireless system reduces installation costs and difficulties associated with installing hardwired systems in facilities with solid or temporary walls, or decorative surfaces. The TE-7700 System is ideal for installations where building aesthetics would normally hinder hardwiring, such as surfaces constructed of marble, granite, brick or concrete. The result is quick, economical and low maintenance installation and relocation.
This TE-7700 Series system offers a wide range of features including RF signal strength indication, multiple transmitter temperature averaging and high/low selection, advance indication of low battery status, and a typical three-year battery life. Optional site survey tools are available to determine the appropriate mounting location prior to installation. These tools verify whether a strong RF signal is available, to ensure proper system operation.
