Orlando, Florida, July 12, 2012 – Carrier Enterprise (CE), LLC (NYSE: WSO) announces the immediate availability of a new line of products focused on delivering a complete HVAC Energy Management Solution for small to medium sized commercial customers and hotel operators. In recognition of this new market the products will be sold under the newly created Founten™ brand name. By utilizing the newest Wireless and Cloud Computing technologies, Founten products bridge the price and capability gap between standalone programmable thermostats and Direct Digital Control systems.
The Founten product line comes with integrated wireless networking that completely auto-configures and becomes instantly usable. This significantly reduces installation and configuration costs. Products include thermostats capable of managing all types of fixed output HVAC units, remote sensors, and power control modules for managing exhaust and ventilation fans, cooling towers, chillers, boilers, PTAC’s and other HVAC related equipment. All of these products communicate via the Founten supplied Wireless Gateway to the core of the Founten system; the Founten Site Manager. The Founten Site Manager provides real-time management and control, continuous data tracking, and complete analysis and reporting. The Founten Site Manager is an Internet Cloud Based Service, managed by CE, and accessed by customers using a Smartphone, Tablet or Web Browser from anywhere in the world. The entire system is economical to purchase and install.
“We have a clear vision where Founten has a huge advantage over full blown, highly technical wired DDC systems or where a traditional high end commercial thermostat did not offer enough” said Gene LaNois, Director-Parts, Supplies & Specialized Equipment. “It’s a new brand with proven technology…flat out…we are excited to finally bring this to market!” continued, LaNois.
