Bard Manufacturing Introduces FUSION-TEC™ WALL-MOUNT:
The Next Generation of Innovation in Free Cooling.

The Bard Manufacturing Company introduced their FUSION-TEC™ wall-mount combination DAC (Direct Air Control) economizer/air conditioner at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo), (#AHR2018).

“The FUSION-TEC innovation is a peak-efficiency economizer with an ultra-high efficiency air conditioning system wrapped around it, thereby maximizing free cooling opportunities,” stated Paul Quigley, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Our factory-installed DAC economizer is at the heart of the FUSION-TEC innovation. Our clients are shocked when they learn the FUSION-TEC shows them a constant superheat value, and notifies them if the condenser coil is dirty. The design is so rugged that it can run by itself in an orphan-mode if it ever loses contact with the indoor control.”

The FUSION-TEC™ WALL-MOUNT maximizes free cooling opportunities through a counterflow/reverse airflow process. Productive outdoor air for free cooling is brought into the system from the lower portion of the chassis. The heat in the shelter/e-building is pushed up and out of the economizer exhaust at the top of the chassis — completely eliminating any possibility of recirculating hot exhaust. When outdoor air is inefficient for free cooling, the FUSION-TEC system utilizes a staged mechanical cooling system that operates at an IPLV of 15.7. And, the 2-stage compressor, variable speed blower and EEV, add precise cooling to match the load over a large range. This system is engineered to control both temperature and humidity.

“By minimizing recirculation of heated air and maximizing free-cooling opportunities, FUSION-TEC delivers unparalleled performance, lower operating cost, and exceptional total cost of ownership,” stated Quigley.

FUSION-TEC features an easy-to-install design with a simple 2-wire connection between units for up to 14 wall-mount units on the same network. The LC6000 e-building control has full remote access functionality managed through one home base via Bard’s new Programmable Logic Control (PLC) technology that offers intelligence and simplicity with an easy to use menu format.

The Energy Efficiency Ratio of the new DAC economizer far exceeds 80 EER, and FUSION-TEC meets the 2019 US Department of Energy minimum efficiency of 11 EER, IECC2015 and California Title 24, is AHRI certified and ETL approved.

From the simplified installation process to maintenance notifications, FUSION-TEC is a smart solution for the complex needs of the equipment shelter and telecommunications world, and a viable solution for many other industries’ equipment building and task cooling needs.

THE FUSION-TEC WR58 and WR36 units are available now through Bard distribution partners.
