Trench Heating partners with Siemens for control
Siemens Desigo RX controllers are now installed as standard in Trench Heating’s electronically commutated fan-powered trench heaters. Building on a relationship that saw Siemens provide HVAC controls to Trench Heating, this new OEM solution will see Desigo RX controllers factory fitted into pre-assembled units.
The Desigo control contains a specific energy-efficient control algorithm for the EC fans within the trench heating units, helping to minimise unnecessary energy consumption.
Phil Wallace of the Siemens Building Technologies division, explains, ‘The controller has been specially designed to meet Trench Heating’s requirements. By accurately controlling the EC fan with a unique algorithm, the trench heating unit can better maintain heat levels, leading to optimum conditions in the space while meeting energy-reduction targets.’
