FBTi-7T7-1U1R Enhances IAQ and Energy Efficiency

ABB announced the launch of the FBTi-7T7-1U1R recently, a piece of technology designed to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and optimize energy usage in terminal equipment. This device was built to cover various applications including fan coil units, chilled ceilings, heat pump systems, and rooftop units. The engineers behind this device leveraged the ABB Cylon FusionAir sensor series for its multifaceted capabilities in handling IAQ applications such as demand control ventilation. The FBTi-7T7-1U1R is designed to help improving IAQ while also ensuring maximum efficiency when it comes to conserving energy costs.

Available at Broudy Precision, the FBTi-7T7-1U1R is a high performance, low cost BACnet® Unitary Controller with native BACnet/IP communications support. BTL listed as BACnet Building Controller (B-BC), it perfectly complements the FBVi (IP VAV controller) in the IP terminal unit controller range. Utilizing the patented UniPut technology, it provides reliable and cost-effective control solutions for Fan Coil Units, Chilled Ceilings, Heat Pumps and Roof Top Units.

Dual IP ports with failsafe switchover connects the FBTi to any open BACnet network and also provides seamless integration to the ABB Cylon system.

APPLICATION

The FBTi-7T7-1U1R is designed to cover applications from Fan Coil Unit, Chilled Ceiling, Heat Pump and Roof Top Units. Leveraging the ABB Cylon FusionAir sensor series, the FBTi can execute IAQ applications such as Demand Control Ventilation and optimize energy usage in the controlled terminal equipment.

It is programmed using CXproHD programming software as with other ABB Cylon controllers. Reference strategies for Fan Coil Units and Roof Top Units are available for download and customization.

Docker® + Niagara, learn why it might be beneficial for your Niagara application.

With the upcoming release of Niagara Framework® 4.13, Niagara will be available as a Docker® container that packages together the Niagara core, the JRE (Java Runtime Environment), and any additional modules required at runtime. This containerized delivery mechanism has advantages during development, at first provisioning for a given customer and for each version upgrade compared to standard deployment and integration processes.

A container bundles the code defining a specific software application with its related configuration files, libraries, and dependencies such that the package is fully functional, no matter the cloud or non-cloud computing environment, enhancing agility, updatability, and security over the product life cycle. Containers are less resource intensive, more portable than Virtual Machines, and can ease development, deployment, and upgrades. 

Containerized Niagara offers simplified deployment of Niagara in cloud-based environments and for third-party hardware. For OEMs using a container orchestration system, simplified container management facilitates remote deployment and updating of Niagara on connected devices. 

Containerized Niagara offers the following new features:

  • Niagara Framework supplied in a Docker® container
  • Support for AMD_x86 and Arm64 architecture and custom support for different architectures
  • Two different authentication methods – File Domain Auth or Native Domain Auth
  • Subscription-based purchasing using OPex instead of CAPex for purchasing flexibility

Act Now, Niagara AX End of Life is Approaching-July 1st 2023.
