Panasonic Expands Line of Vent Fan Controls to Provide Builders and Contractors with Fully Customized Options


Adding to its comprehensive line of ventilation controls and switches, Panasonic Eco Products Division recently introduced its enhanced WhisperControl Condensation Sensor Plus and Preset Countdown and Hourly Fan Timer.

The Sensor Plus is a wall-mounted combination humidity and temperature sensor that now includes automatic seasonal adaptability with an optional moisture-sensitivity selector and an Adjustable Minutes Per Hour (MPH) fan timer for compliance with ASHRAE 62.2.

Panasonic’s WhisperControl line also includes a Preset Countdown and Hourly Fan Timer that automatically shuts the fan off after it has run for a pre-selected period of time, with the added value of incorporating the Adjustable Minutes Per Hour Fan timer to provide constant and controlled ventilation every hour for compliance with ASHRAE 62.2.

These controls give builders more customizable ventilation options to meet the latest industry codes and standards, respond to homeowners’ specific needs, and give building and hotel owners the ability to make energy saving the responsibility of the fan, not the occupant.

The Condensation Sensor Plus is the next generation in moisture control and healthy indoor air technology. It operates differently by detecting hot air and humidity based on dew point, or the temperature at which water vapor in the air condenses into liquid. By accurately recognizing dew point, the sensor turns on the ventilation fans when necessary, allowing for energy-efficient function in all seasons, for all climate zones, before problem moisture has a chance to set in and cause damage.
