LOCAL COMPANY WINS DESIGN AWARD WITH AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT "THINKS LIKE PEOPLE DO"
LOCAL COMPANY WINS DESIGN AWARD WITH AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT "THINKS LIKE PEOPLE DO" COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- A new industrial air conditioning system that controls room temperature using approximate reasoning, much as people do, has been honored with a Silver Award in "HVAC Product News" magazine's second annual design award competition. The Columbus-based Liebert Corporation's LogiCool(TM) precision air conditioning system uses "fuzzy" or approximate logic to monitor and respond to changes in room conditions. Fuzzy logic makes it possible for the LogiCool system to provide tighter, more efficient control over the temperature and humidity of areas such as remote telecommunications stations, special equipment rooms, and rooms that must be pressurized, such as clean rooms, laboratories, etc. /NO CHARGE DIAL-UP PHOTOGRAPH ACCOMPANIES THIS STORY/ (Instructions Below) The LogiCool system was chosen as an award winner from among more than 90 heating, ventilation and air conditioning product entries, which were evaluated by a panel of HVAC contractors from around the country. Products were judged on their installation ease and speed, reliability, ease of maintenance and repairs, and overall design. Fuzzy logic is based on the concept of approximate reasoning. In more familiar forms of logic, statements are either "true" or "untrue." There is no middle ground. In contrast, fuzzy logic allows the use of labels like "slightly," "moderately," and "very," so that statements may be made with varying degrees of precision. This flexibility is useful in coping with the imprecision of real-world situations, such as air conditioning a room. The LogiCool system includes a microprocessor, which is programmed with a set of "fuzzy rules" that allow it to make decisions much as a human brain does. Liebert Corporation, a subsidiary of Emerson Electric Co., pioneered the development of precision environmental control for information processing systems. In 65 countries, its products and systems control temperature and humidity, condition power and guard against power outages, and monitor and control access to critical space.
