The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) has welcomed zone control system manufactures to its newest product section.
"This is an exciting opportunity to bring together manufacturers of zone control system equipment to address issues of common interest in this growing market, and to establish a dialogue among industry leaders," says Henry Hwong, ARI's Director of Product Sections.
Zone control systems covered by ARI's new product section include in-line duct dampers and controllers for the purpose of multiple zone control with single zone unitary HVAC equipment. They allow multiple distinct temperature patterns to be established within a conditioned space.
Generally, zone control systems are applied to forced air heating and cooling units, but may be interfaced with hydronic systems or radiant systems providing comfort control utilizing one thermostat per zone for multiple mode applications.
Dampers utilized within these systems control the flow of conditioned air and may be utilized in fresh air intake and economizer applications.
"ARI's reputation in establishing industry standards and upholding the industry's integrity is well known. The commitment from companies joining the newly established ARI product section further demonstrates those commitments," says Dennis Laughlin of Arzel Zoning Technology, Inc.,
