Delta announced Delta Controls, Inc., a Delta Group company and provider of cutting-edge building automation systems, has won Frost & Sullivan’s 2020 Global Building Automation Systems Company of the Year Award. The honor by the market research firm recognizes Delta Controls’ ability to provide value to worldwide customers with its technologies that offer a full suite of smart features and functionality, as well as with its technical support. Delta Controls’ signature O3 Sensor Hub 2.0, a system integrating multiple sensors and IoT interfaces to enable next-generation smart and energy-efficient buildings, served as a key factor in receiving the Frost & Sullivan award.
“Delta Controls exemplifies superior best practices in best-of-breed technology offerings and innovative solutions because it incorporates a convergence of technologies with a dedicated customer service partnership experience,” said Neha Tatikota, an industry analyst for energy and environment at Frost & Sullivan.
Mr. Bill Lo, general manager of Delta’s Building Automation Business Group, said, “We are extremely proud of Delta Controls’ passion in always pushing the envelope. They are a tremendously valued part of Delta — enabling us to collectively create a more energy-efficient built environment for a smarter and greener future.”
Frost & Sullivan called the IoT-enabled O3 Sensor Hub 2.0 “revolutionary,” before concluding “it is beneficial not just for building owners, managers, and occupants, but also accepted by architects, installers and consultant community as a highly cost-effective installation.” The hub utilizes sensor fusion technology for superior room control and to optimize occupant comfort. The ceiling-mounted device observes its environment and reports interior temperature, occupancy, humidity, lighting, heating and cooling — while serving as a connectivity platform for sensing air quality, ventilation, window contact and shade positions. It also supports multiple protocols that allow for integration with nearly any system, including native BACnet, MQTT and REST API for third-party integration and BLE API for custom app development.
“Winning this award is a testament to the hard work, spirit and dedication that shines across our organization every day,” said John Nicholls, president of Delta Controls. “Our guiding philosophy is to ‘do it right,’ which fuels our ambition to develop only the most innovative solutions.”
Surrey, Canada-based Delta Controls was acquired by Delta Electronics in 2016 to strengthen the company’s building automation capabilities and expand its portfolio of critical smart infrastructure solutions.
