Multiple sensors protect the HVAC unit against airflow deficiencies, which can cause refrigerant flooding, coil icing, and high temperature conditions.

Opti-Run Fan Control reduces fan speed when no heat or cool calls are present for dramatic energy savings

The CATALYST monitors smoke/fire detector signal to provide positive shutdown of the HVAC supply fan even if the VFD has been placed in a local control override.

Prior to allowing heating or cooling operation the CATALYST checks for a positive indication that the fan is running

The CATALYST assures code compliance and proper ventilation with synchronous control of the outside air damper position in conjunction with fan speed variations.

When connected to the eIQ Platform Enhanced Ventilation Control can be used to increase fresh air volume in the space, reducing the risk of airborne virus transmission

When connected to the eIQ Platform the CATALYST BMS can send configurable email alerts on a number of equipment and comfort conditions

The CATALYST comes equipped with a Service Switch that allows technicians to cycle through operating cycles to quickly diagnose issues
