Capital Manor was burdened with an obsolete control system and often experienced issues with equipment failure. To renew the aging health care facility, Reliable Controls® Authorized Dealer, Sunbelt Controls (formerly Essential Building Technologies), was awarded the contract to retrofit a DDC solution and replace aging control valves to ensure long term comfort for the manor’s residents.

At more than 5 million square feet, Capital Manor boasted an extensive list of mechanical equipment, but thanks to the flexibility of the Reliable Controls MACH-System, Essential Building Technologies were able to control the entire facility with 4 ETHER-Link portals, 15 MACH-Zone controllers, and 96 MACH1 controllers.

Onsite mechanical equipment consisted of Air Handler Units (AHUs), chillers, boilers, and the main Terrace Tower’s 65 Fan Coil Units (FCUs). To provide easy access to system information, the Reliable Controls MACHSystem powerhouse MACH-ProWebCom controller operates as the host for serving custom graphic representations of the entire facility.

Due to the modular arrangement of the Reliable Controls MACH-System, Sunbelt Controls was able to install the system without disturbing the lives of the manor’s residents.
