Johnson Controls' 12.5-Ton Commercial Rooftop Units
Johnson Controls is reintroducing two lines of 3–12.5 ton commercial rooftop units that provide a variety of performance-based comfort solutions for commercial environments. The Johnson Controls Series 12R and Johnson Controls Series 10 have been relaunched as Johnson Controls Core and Johnson Controls Pro, respectively.
A highlight of this relaunch is an upgrade to the airflow strategy from constant volume to three-stage cooling with IntelliSpeed™ control, which delivers up to a 3.4 IEER (26%) increase on comparable models. The ultra-high efficiency Pro rooftop units are the highest efficiency dual circuit model on the market, offering up to 21 IEER. Both platforms have models that meet stringent Department of Energy (DOE) 2023, ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and IECC 2015 requirements.
Core units are economically designed for new construction and retrofit applications to minimize the need for transition curbs, while the Pro units offer a premium cabinet with maintenance-friendly standard features for service professionals.
Smart Equipment also provides seamless integration with leading building controls systems, including Verasys. An optional Mobile Access Portal (MAP) gateway with a Wi-Fi® hotspot provides access to commissioning, configuration and maintenance logs using a mobile smart device for fewer trips to the job site or the roof to diagnose issues.
Both platforms have multiple airflow strategies including constant volume (CV), IntelliSpeed™ single zone variable air volume (SZVAV), continuous reset single zone (CRSZ) and variable air volume (VAV). Additionally, Core and Pro rooftop units offer many options and accessories to perfectly match a building’s needs and make specification as simple as possible.
