i-Vu® RTU Open

Product Integrated Controller

Integrated controller for rooftop units capable of stand-alone operation or integrated with Carrier’s or any Building Automation System using BACnet®, Modbus® or Lonworks® protocol.

The RTU Open controller continuously monitors and regulates constant volume rooftop operation with reliability and precision. This advanced controller features a sophisticated, factory-engineered control program that provides optimum performance and energy efficiency. It also features plug-and-play connectivity to the Carrier i-Vu Building Automation System.

For added flexibility, the RTU Open controller is capable of stand-alone operation, or, it can be integrated with any other Building Automation System utilizing the BACnet, Modbus®, LonWorks®, or N2 protocols.
