The new Aquarea Cascade Controller from Panasonic can operate up to 10 Aquarea air to water heat pumps (160kW) simultaneously or in cascade mode, helping to meet the heating or cooling demand of commercial buildings more efficiently. Each heat pump within the cascade requires its own Modbus Interface (PAW-AW-MBS-H) to allow it to communicate with the Aquarea Cascade Controller.
It directly integrates with a building’s BEMS by a built-in modbus for a smart way to manage heating, cooling, domestic hot water (DHW) and monitor energy usage. PV panel functions, a 3-way external valve for cooling, and up to three external heat meters can also be connected to the controller at one time to oversee all operations and view essential information in one place.
In addition, the controller includes a touch screen display with information about each of the connected heat pumps – ideal for quick servicing and maintenance tasks.
