This year was a little different... The Pie & Pint has traditionally been a showcase of the latest and greatest that Ability have to offer. However, given the number of game-changing developments currently in progress, we’re going to hold a bigger event in 2018 to present this next generation of Fan Coil Units and Control systems.

The exact dates will be posted as soon as they are known...

Matrix Fan Coils no longer only suit large projects...

Matrix is available with an innovative and very cost effective ‘Mini BMS Package’ that allows individually owned and franchised operations such as shops, bars and restaurants within large multi-retail complexes to fully control their own air conditioning independently of the main shopping centre system. 

The self-contained package comprises a full colour 7in touch screen display which is in fact both the user interface and the ‘Mini Head End’ . Networking aside, nothing else is required other than the Matrix units themselves incorporating their own terminal control device. 

The touch screen unit can be wall or panel mounted and therefore occupies little room which can often be at a premium in such operations.  Most often the visuals are tailored to present the customers corporate theme. Sub screens can show the Matrix unit layout, the various setting options and the ‘real time’ operational conditions. 

These features, common to most BMS systems can be complimented by occupancy monitoring and time scheduling. 

All features are simple in operation allowing the outlet Manager to control and adjust the timing of, and the environmental condition within their own business. This is very important when stores often have variable opening hours depending on the season, sales, stock taking etc and also where room use is very variable such as in stock rooms or staff rooms.  

The whole system is connected by ‘CAT 5 / 6’ cabling through an Ethernet Switch which are readily available. Configured on a native BACnet IP network ensures that the system is simple to install, the network is robust, is very fast in operation and is expandable. 

These small retail packages do not need to necessarily rely upon a communal supply of chilled and heating water. They are equally happy operating with a small chiller in a self-contained system and will provide equally as much flexibility and energy efficiency.
