Honeywell outdoor temperature sensor

The Honeywell outdoor temperature sensor used with the Honeywell VisionPRO touch screen thermostat has a part number of C7089U1006.  Sometimes we get calls asking if you can install one sensor to multiple thermostats. You can only have one sensor wired to one thermostat.
You can not have one sensor wired to more than one stat, and you can not have more multiple sensors hooked up to just one stat.

It is always a one to one ratio!

The C7089U Outdoor Sensor has a negative temperature coefficient (NTC) meaning that resistance decreases as the temperature increases. Being a resistance sensor limits the applications to a one to one ratio of sensors to stats when measuring outside air temperature.

Jackson Systems’ Green Zone Voted #1 in Comfortech 2008 Product Showcase Awards

Jackson Systems’ The Green Zone was voted #1 in the Contracting Business HVAC Comfortech 2008 Product Awards in the category of Zoning Equipment. 

A table tent announcing the award will be delivered to the Jackson Systems booth during the HVAC Comfortech 2008 and the product will also be featured in the upcoming issue of Contracting Business. 

Z-200 The Green Zone is a simple, high quality and competitively priced residential and light commercial zone control system that consists of a microprocessor based logic panel that can control two zones. The system is available in single-stage, multi-stage and heat pump configurations and is designed to eliminate the 8-12 degree temperature difference that exists between upstairs and downstairs in most two story homes, or between one end and the other in ranch-style homes. The system will also improve overall space comfort and lower operating costs.  You can learn more about The Green Zone here.

Jackson Systems is now the distributor for Honeywell analytics

Jackson Systems has expanded their product line to include technology in gas detection.  Some of the more common air quality hazards that need monitoring include carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), NO2, O2, CL2, and refrigerants.  Whether you require a fully engineered gas detection network or a more modest detection solution, we can customize a solution to meet your needs.  Gas detection can be a critical component of ensuring clean air in parking garages, mechanical rooms, computer server rooms, or in refrigerant systems. 

One common gas detection application is monitoring CO2 in parking garages.  These monitoring systems can activate ventilation through relays on multiple levels and at varying speeds depending on the concentration of gas measured.  Cars produce carbon monoxide (CO) as a result of incomplete combustion.  When a large number of vehicles are within an enclosed area such as a parking garage, the concentrations of CO can reach harmful levels.  Large reductions in energy and maintenance costs can be had by activating fans only when CO levels reach a certain hazardous level instead of running them all the time.

A gas detection system typically includes a main control panel, sensors, and audible/visual alarm devices that can be linked to a controller or a building automation system (BAS).   The system can be either hardwired or wireless.  Many people think that wireless mesh networking is the wave of the future.
