The Prodigy® self-modulating diffuser series
has been designed to address many of the
problems common to today’s conventional
Most traditional approaches group rooms
with similar load characteristics together
to form zones. As these zones are created,
multiple work spaces are controlled by a
single thermostat. “Thermostat wars”
ensue as occupants attempt to adjust
the thermostat to their level of comfort.
Complaints from occupants who are “too
hot” or “too cold” are common. Often, the
system works at capacity to satisfy that one
occupant who represents the “worst case”
within that zone.
The Prodigy® enhances traditional system
design by adding the element of personal
control. A room temperature sensor
provides constant feedback to the
microprocessor controller located in the
diffuser, enabling precise monitoring of the
As room load varies, the Prodigy®

is precise and proportionate to
of the space and occupant.
The actuator mechanism features a
high-torque, low voltage motor, which
offers immediate response that is superior
to the sluggish response and delayed action
common to thermally activated expansion
devices. A supply air temperature sensor
provides automatic heating / cooling
changeover. An output is available to
activate supplemental perimeter heating
devices if required.
Three models are available with convenient
set-point adjustment at the diffuser, a wall
mounted thermostat or a handheld remote.
A BACnet interface option allows Prodigy
master units to connect to a MS/TP network.
This allows the Prodigy master to share
information with the building automation
