Earlier last month, a few cfm Distributors, Inc team members helped a local mechanical contractor put on a 3-day customer appreciation event, and were asked to talk about “any new technologies or products from YORK”. The topic? It was a no-brainer: YORK’s NEW Simplicity Smart controls and Fault Detection & Diagnostics. The cfm team arrived with a YORK Direct Fit™ packaged unit, iPads, & laptops eager to discuss this exciting new technology.
The reactions we received
I remember my initial reaction to seeing this new technology — I wrote about it here in, “Is the future of Fault Detection & Diagnostics really here?” The future is here, and people were just as impressed as I was about the new Simplicity Smart controls and Fault Detection & Diagnostics. There were well over a hundred building owners, operators and technicians at the US Engineering event that came through over the course of the 3-day event. As people learned about this new technology available by YORK, a couple of the comments we received were, “Wow that’s awesome!” and, “We could really use that in our building!”. By the end of the 3-days, we weren’t sure if there was anyone who hadn’t been impressed by YORK’s Simplicity Smart controls and Fault Detection & Diagnostics.
What Simplicity Smart Controls can do for you
So, what is this new technology? Fault Detection & Diagnostics is an add on board with temperature and pressure sensors factory installed on each refrigerant circuit. This allows a building owner or technician to view all of the unit’s “vitals” to assure trouble free operation or to troubleshoot the unit. These “vitals” include, but are not limited to, supply/return/ambient temperatures, superheat, subcooling, fault codes, overcharged/undercharged warnings, economizer details, and the list goes on.
