The Z-600 Comfort System
is a residential and light commercial forced air zone control system that allows a single HVAC unit to have up to six separate zones. The system can be expanded to as many as 12 zones by adding 3-zone expansion modules. Intuitive firmware allows the panel to be used with single stage, multi-stage, heat pump, and dual fuel equipment having up to 3 stages of heating and 2 stages of cooling. Standard heat / cool or heat pump thermostats can be used with the Z-600, along with a choice of two or three-wire zone dampers. Simple slide switch configuration allows for a wide range of system setup and control options best suited for each zoning application. Additional features include fuse protected inputs and outputs, easy-to-read and access wiring terminals, LED status indication of all system functions, time delay override, adjustable on-board limits, balance point controls, and selectable ventilation and purge modes. An adjustable upstage timer allows single stage thermostats to be used with multi-stage equipment. Capacity Control can also stage equipment based on the number of zones calling. The Z-600 comes in an attractive and rugged 2-piece anodized aluminum enclosure that provides easy access for wiring, system setup, and diagnostics.What is "Zone Control?"
Zone control allows you to direct heated or cooled air into, or block it from, various rooms in your home. You know not all rooms receive the same heat from the sun, nor does every room have the same heat producers (stove, lots of people), and we all know one family member who wants to be warmer or cooler than the rest of us.
