New Mobile App for User Control of Underfloor Air Conditioning Systems
AET Flexible Space, leading provider of underfloor air conditioning (UFAC) systems can now offer even more personal user control with the newly launched “FlexApp”. AET Flexible Space systems have featured personal user control for thirty years, highlighting the advanced and user led design of their underfloor systems.
Underfloor air conditioning systems are commonly used in office environments, utilising the plenum beneath a raised floor as the ventilation zone. Fully conditioned air is supplied into the plenum by zonal downflow units (CAM), and is then supplied into the workspace via fan terminal units, or Fantiles. Using the integrated Fatronic controllers in the Fantiles, users can personally adjust fan speed and temperature to suit their own comfort. Access to the controller is via a specially designed hatch within the grille that covers the recessed Fantile.
The new FlexApp displays current room temperature and (under) floor temperature, and users can power individual Fantiles on or off, or adjust temperature (within specified range of setpoint) and fan speed simply with + and – buttons offering workers remote adjustment of temperature and fan speed settings on Fantiles via their android or IOS device, eliminating the need to physically adjust the settings on the controller via the hatch.
