Benefits:

Safety: Constant and accurate water temperature prevents potential scalding.

Accuracy: Outlet temperature to system is +/- 2°F

Connectivity: The Brain® and BrainScan™ communicate through an onboard status display and remotely through a Building Automation System to provide self diagnostics, alarms and temperature trending.

Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Installation

Armstrong’s W South Beach installation celebrates its fifth year in operation as the first DMC2BS1 ever manufactured by Armstrong International in the United States. Since 2009, Armstrong has closely monitored the overall performance of the valves and recorded exceptional control of the mixed outlet temperature regardless of the water heater’s performance. In fact, within four-and-a-half years of operation, Armstrong received only one service call regarding a failed motor which was fulfilled within 16 hours from report to receipt with minimal interruption or maintenance by the hotel. The Brain’s outstanding performance has led to numerous projects within the hotel brand.
