ThermOmegaTech Circuit Solver self-actuating thermostat 

The Circuit Solver self-actuating thermostatic balancing valve from ThermOmegaTech is designed to compensate for the fact that water flows to the path of least resistance, providing hot water when needed. As water use changes throughout a building, so does the path of resistance. Installing the valve immediately downstream of the last hot water fixture on each hot water branch line before it tees into the common hot water return line, the temperature of the hot water distribution system stays balanced. The valve modulates based on temperature differential from setpoint, preventing sudden closure that could create water hammer. Since the valve movement is automatic, manual adjustment is not required. 877/379-8258; www.thermomegatech.com/circuitsolver.

Grundfos UPZC Series expandable hydronic zone controls 

The expandable UPZC Series of zone controls from Grundfos Pumps are designed to manage circulator and boiler control in residential hydronic heating systems. The non-networked devices control up to six heating zones and can be coupled together in various configurations to accommodate any application. Boiler pumps, domestic hot water pumps, system pumps and pump priority are all controlled from the UPZC control.

The zone relay control connects to standard thermostats using either two or three wires. The optional third wire provides 24VAC to thermostats that require external power. The UPZC operates in a cold start configuration with a call-for-heat from a thermostat. The module’s relay is energized, which, in turn, switches 120VAC to activate the circulator and also provides a call-for-heat signal to the boiler.

Side-mounted terminals provide simple access and wiring, while the forward-facing, easy-to-read LED display on the front panel shows system status and zone function. 800/921-7867; http://us.grundfos.com.
