BACNet controllers for terminal units

DXR controllers from Siemens offer robust control for fan coils, VAV, and fan-assisted VAV units. They have been designed with both new-build and refurbishment projects in mind. They use the truly open BACnet protocol and are easy to install, saving money at the outset.

A number of the DXR room units incorporate the Siemens Green Leaf function — an icon that occupants can see on the room controls.

If the leaf is green, the system is operating efficiently. If the leaf turns red, pushing the button re-sets the system to its most energy-efficient setting. Calculations based on BS EN15232 show that Green Leaf can save up to 25% of energy use.
