Crestron’s New DIN-Rail HVAC Controls: Way Better than Thermostats Slapped on Plywood

Crestron’s New DIN-Rail HVAC Controls: Way Better than Thermostats Slapped on Plywood
Crestron DIN-THSTAT, working in conjunction with the company's temperature and humidity sensors, installs out of the way in a compatible cabinet for a cleaner climate-control solution.

Integrators typically do a nice job creating design-friendly climate controls – shunning multiple ugly thermostats in favor of discrete temperature and humidity sensors in the living areas.

The thermostats that do all the work typically are mounted in a closet somewhere, taking up precious wall space and generally looking pretty amateurish.

At ISE 2019, Crestron launched a system of DIN-Rail climate controls for a more efficient and sleek-looking install at the head-end.

The new DIN-THSTAT mounts on a DIN rail, which supplies power to the modules. A pair of Cresnet ports is provided on the DIN-THSTAT to allow easy daisy-chaining of several stats or other Crestron DIN rail devices such as the DIN-AP3 3-Series automation processor.

The thermostats (shipping now) pair with new Professional Installation Cabinets (shipping soon) that hide the electronics but expose the controls, including a new “more modern, color-LCD window,” Crestron VP residential tells CE Pro.

“You can just see the faces of the touchpanels poking through,” he says, “not just a bunch of thermostats on a piece of plywood.”
