Controls for multi-use buildings

Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI Controls Network Provides Solutions for Any Commercial Application.


Mitsubishi Electric has added three innovative controllers – the TC-24 Touch Screen Centralized Controller, the GB-50ADA Centralized Controller and the BAC-HD150 BACnet Interface – to its Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI Controls Network (CMCN) family of products.

The new TC-24 Touch Screen Centralized Controller is perfect for small-footprint, multi-tenant and mixed-use commercial applications that require individual control capabilities. The TC-24 controller includes a modern, high resolution, 5-inch LCD touch screen user-interface design. It allows for independent and batch-mode control for up to 24 Mitsubishi Electric indoor air handlers, LOSSNAY ERV or split-zoning ductless and ducted units with an M-Net adaptor or DIDO channels. Other innovative features include a selectable setback mode with separate cooling and heating set points, timed override and hold functions, temperature setting and airflow direction control and scheduling (supports daily and weekly schedules).

The GB-50ADA controller is ideal for larger multi-tenant and partitioned-environment commercial applications that require a stand-alone capability for controlling Mitsubishi Electric VRF zoning systems from the convenience of a computer’s web browser. The GB-50ADA features individual control of up to 50 indoor air handlers, which allows for very diverse applications. The controller provides versatility with the ability to schedule daily and annual programming with seasonal switchover and a night-time setback mode. The control also includes connectivity via RJ-45 100BaseTX Local Area Network for computer system integration and monitoring and error-logging functionality for HVAC system maintenance and service.

The new BAC-HD150 is ideal for large commercial applications requiring a central point for full building monitoring and control. This control is a convenient BACnet-certified interface in a box that provides up to 50 groups per adapter and supports BACnet/IP Broadcast Management Device Protocol. In addition, the control is BTL listed and can fully integrate a multitude of Mitsubishi Electric VRF zoning systems through the M-NET, as well as work in tandem with the AG-150 and GB-50ADA centralized controllers.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
