San Jose, Calif., April 21, 2011 — Echelon Corp. announced that its customer, Siemens Building Technologies division has sold one million LonWorks based Desigo RXC single-room controllers for improved building energy management.
RXC controllers provide individual room control and monitoring of temperature, ventilation, air conditioning lighting and blinds for public buildings, offices and hotels and ensure optimal energy efficiency.
One million units, installed in more than 6,000 customer projects: These figures underscore the benefits and quality of the proven Desigo RXC controllers from Siemens. These demand-based single-room controllers are cost-effective and easy to operate.
