Schneider Electric’s SE8000 Series Room Controllers Offer Unparalleled Design, Simple Installation and Energy Savings

New solution integrates thermostat and programmable room controllers using a customizable, intelligent design

Kuala Lumpur (December 19, 2013) – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced the SE8000 Series room controllers, a solution that provides the distinctive advantage of integrating a thermostat/temperature sensor and programmable room controller in a single unit. The SE8000 Series room controllers are elegantly designed with a highly customizable surface that works in a multitude of environments and decors, including offices, retail stores, schools, hotels and more. The room controllers deliver all the comfort and control functionality found in multi-component (DDC) systems, but in a small, easy-to-install package. The controllers can scale across a facility to optimize the energy use of HVAC systems and help reduce operational costs.

Engineered to meet the needs of building owners and facility managers across industries, the SE8000 Series room controllers help reduce installation labor, which enables faster commissioning time, lowers total installed cost of ownership, and delivers a quick return on investment (ROI) for retrofit projects. The new room controllers also allow commercial building owners and occupants to reinforce their brand by displaying any logo, image, or dynamic scheduled message on their screen. Full customization is achievable by selecting from five screen colors, two casings, and 10 textured fascias to find the perfect combination to complement any décor. The room controllers are equipped with advanced application-specific control technology, alarm monitoring, optional humidity and occupancy controls, multi-language support, a touch screen interface, and an optional discreet occupancy sensor.

“With the new SE8000 Series room controllers, we are offering customers the most cutting-edge design and advanced room control technology in intelligent, easy to install units,” says Frederick Morency, vice president, Small Building Systems at Schneider Electric. “These room controllers integrate seamlessly into existing HVAC and building management systems to provide fast ROI through energy savings and operational efficiency.”

The room controllers are simple to install and commission, allowing quick deployment with minimal disruption to building occupants, end users, and business operations. They are configured to integrate easily with most building management systems, such as Schneider Electric’s SmartStruxureTM and SmartStruxure Lite solutions. The controllers offer wired and wireless communication options to network and scale with building management systems, making them a perfect fit for both new construction and retrofit projects.

In addition, application-specific models will be released in the coming months for fan coils, heat pumps, roof top and air handling units that are pre-programmed to maximize efficiency, with the option to easily modify configurations to meet unique environmental needs. Third-party integration is available through open protocols, including BACnet® MS/TP, and wireless ZigBee Pro®, enabling organizations to “future-proof” their investment.
