Digital VAV Diffuser

The Prodigy® Personal Diffuser monitors space conditions and regulates

The Prodigy ® enhances traditional system design by adding the element of personal control. A room temperature sensor provides constant feedback to the microprocessor controller located in the diffuser, enabling precise monitoring of the space temperature. Using the room, duct, and setpoint temperatures , the Prodigy ® modulates supply air to maintain comfort in the space.

TWO CONTROL OPTIONS Manual Adjustment This




adjustment with potentiometer located on the diffuser back-pan. The temperature sensor is located on the face of the diffuser, ideally suited for cooling only applications. This control option can be easily upgraded to work with a wall mounted thermostat.

DRONE UNIT Drone units contain actuators and control circuitry to respond to signals from a single master unit. The drone damper moves in sync with the master unit damper ensuring all units meet zone setpoint requirements. Up to five drones can be daisy-chained and supported by one master.

AUXILIARY HEAT CONTROL The Prodigy allows for auxiliary heat control through a 24 VAC output signal ideally suited for perimeter heating devices such as baseboard units and radiant panels. On/ Off, Pulse Width Modulation, and Pulse Delay Modulation (default) configurations are available.

Wall Mounted Thermostat Thermostat setpoint adjustment is the most commonly selected control option and is suitable for applications that require dedicated cooling and/or heating cycles. Due to the buoyancy effects of heated air and the location of the temperature sensor, the wall mounted thermostat provides the most accurate room temperature reading. Five thermostat options are available, ranging from a dial thermostat to a motion sensing, LCD screen thermostat, the details of which are available in the thermostat catalog.

Prodigy® Pressure Relief Collar (PRC) The Prodigy ® Pressure Relief Collar (PRC) slips over the diffuser inlet to provide a simple and inexpensive solution to control inlet static pressure. To limit excessive diffuser noise and pressure drop, duct static pressure should be below 0.25 in. w.g. A PRC is recommended for applications where duct pressure may exceed the recommended limit,

BACNET INTERFACE OPTION The Prodigy® BACnet interface option allows connection to any Building Automation System (BAS) supporting the industry standard BACnet communication protocol. Once connected, information such as room temperature, setpoint, and load can be shared with a BAS allowing remote monitoring and control of the Prodigy ®; maximizing energy efficiency and occupant comfort. Network connection is tool free, and simply requires plugging in the supplied RJ-45 plenum rated network cable.
