IntelliPak® a next-generation unitary rooftop system — launched in 2018 — is ideal for customers who want superior energy efficiency, reliable quality, controls that support connected buildings and lower total cost of ownership.

•           Field programmable: Symbio 800 is the industry’s first application-specific and field-programmable controller. Customers now have more flexibility and customizable sequences of operations to meet applications.

•           Remote monitoring : Customers can remotely monitor data — such as kW consumption and refrigerant pressure — to ensure the unit is operating to design specifications.

•           Adaptive controls: The Symbio 800 controller can help keep IntelliPak operating smoothly by determining where in the compressor operating map it’s performing and adjust settings as needed.

•           Integration : Automation system integration now meets the industry standard to enable a more common process and is more flexible with new communication protocol options.

In partnership with Mitsubishi Electric, Trane now offers variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heating and air conditioning systems in the United States and select Latin America countries. These highly efficient and flexible systems cool or heat spaces with minimal to no ductwork.


•           Retrofit compatible: Trane/Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI® VRF outdoor units — in conjunction with Linear Expansion Valve (LEV) kits — creates a hybrid system that uses existing building air handling equipment to reduce costs and provide VRF technology benefits.

•           Load innovations: Trane/Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI Heat Recovery VRF systems can simultaneously heat and cool within one system by managing refrigerant flow.

•           Comfortable environment: Trane/Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI water-source VRF systems were designed with centrally located condensers to reduce noise and achieve precise comfort conditions while connected to a building’s existing water loop.

Thermal Energy Storage

The electric grid is changing, as concerns about climate change and renewable resources increase. Thermal energy storage is becoming more important to building owners and utilities for their ability to enable growth of renewable energy resources. By acquiring CALMAC®, Trane can now offer building owners superior full-service energy management solutions that include the Thermal Battery™ system--- thermal energy storage for a renewable future.

•           Supports renewable energy: A Thermal Battery system can increase renewable energy use up to 50% making renewable resources more effective and affordable.  That helps with zero net energy design.

•           Supports high performance: To have lowest cost of operation, a building must be agile.  A Thermal Battery system can store clean inexpensive energy, when available, to be used during periods of high demand to help lower the cost of operation.

•           Supports grid resiliency:  A Thermal Battery system helps overcome the intermittency of renewable energy.  It can store excess energy to be used during times when the sun does not shine or wind does not blow. Additionally, a recent study suggests that these systems do more to help the grid during heat storms than previously thought. This is important for both grid resource adequacy planning and providing proper financial compensation, which in turn means more incentives for owners.
