Company and Product News

Schneider Electric announced two new products, SpaceLogic RP-V and Insight Sensor, as enhancements to its Connected Room Solution, which together are designed to help further transform building environment optimization, With these enhancements, the Connected Room Solution offers Connected Room Solutiondemand-driven ventilation based on the actual occupancy of the space. The Connected Room Solution provides businesses with the ability to further increase energy efficiency and reduce costs by controlling a room’s environment by counting people in the space and adjusting airflow and energy usage accordingly. The enhanced Connected Room Solution will be available in all global markets that Schneider Electric services.

Occupant comfort in any space is best optimized when the temperature, lighting, occupancy, and humidity are accounted for in the room. Knowing the number of occupants in a room enables proactive conditioning for the space.  It is no longer necessary to wait for temperature or CO2 thresholds to be exceeded and then adjust the conditions. The Connected Room Solution incorporates the new SpaceLogic RP-V and Insight Sensor to help maximize space efficiency through real-time space usage, helping to save organizations between 10 to 20 percent on HVAC energy costs and producing more comfortable environments for occupants.

The Connected Room Solution now utilizes a specialized sensor designed to work with room level devices, such as light and blind control. The smart SP90 actuator for intelligent hydronic control and the Insight Sensor work in tandem to help level-set the temperature, air quality, and atmosphere of a room. The Insight Sensor itself is a 6-in-1 sensor that monitors people counting, motion, temperature, humidity, sound levels and light levels.  

With about 90 percent of people worldwide anticipated to spend most of their time within indoor environments, it's more imperative than ever before that building owners help to ensure the health, comfort, and safety of their occupants. Companies can utilize the Connected Room Solution integrated with SpaceLogic RP-V and Insight Sensor as a means of monitoring for acute room level changes and automating room HVAC operations, which helps to maintain a healthy room environment and cut energy costs.
