Magnum Energy Solutions Launches Innovative Wireless Solutions at AHR Expo 2015

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2015) - Magnum Energy Solutions, a manufacturer of innovative wireless solutions, is showcasing its newest line of wireless self powered energy management and monitoring products in AHR booth 3666 within the Building Automation and Control area. By leveraging wireless, batteryless technology, Magnum's solutions offer considerable advantages, including improved flexibility, enhanced occupant comfort and reduced energy consumption. The open and interoperable technology offers both stand alone applications as well as capabilities to seamlessly integrate to nearly any existing building system. This integration is accomplished using an eBox, which automatically translates incoming wireless transmissions into BACnet IP objects. Come visit the booth for a visual demonstration of the capabilities of this unique device.

In addition to demonstrating its core solution, Magnum will launch its new, industry leading products that are poised to elevate the capacity for wireless within the HVAC industry. ROOT is an android based thermostat strategically designed for the multifamily sector with applications for hotels and commercial offices as well. ROOT consists of a capacitive touch screen, speakers and is enabled with Bluetooth, WIFI, an Ethernet jack and Verizon mobile technology. This device is fully customizable and can interface with other third party applications, including package notification, access control, security and more.

The multifamily sector has been historically slow to embrace "smart technology" as an amenity or marketing tool, but developers and property managers are increasingly acknowledging that more residents are looking for apartments with features that give them a greater sense of control. Mike Smith, VP of Building Technology at Forest City, sees smart apartment technology as an important benefit for both residents and management. He notes that Forest City has 1,100 apartment units in Chicago; on any given day 100 could be vacant. "So with the click of a button, we can power everything down and even see if any windows are open." Mr. Smith adds, "Magnum's android based, wireless ROOT presents the future of residential living."

With eBox, traditional hard wired building automation systems can be connected to wireless end devices tied to temperature, humidity, CO2, motion and LUX sensors. With the goal to be integrated, intelligent buildings can be better monitored and managed to attain increased efficiencies and improved occupant comfort.

Also to be highlighted at the booth 3666 will be the revolutionary Perfect Pair technology, which allows for thermostatic control of hot water and steam heating systems. A wireless valve actuator is paired with a wireless digital thermostat that automatically adjusts the amount of steam or hot water flowing through the radiator. These devices work in a stand alone capacity, or can be integrated into a building automation system through Magnum's eBox, for better balancing.

Magnum is using AHR to announce their new partnership with Optigo Networks, the leader in building network end solutions. This partnership combines Magnum's energy management solutions with Optigo's flexible and versatile network solutions to create powerful smart building solutions.
