Berner AIR Controller/App for Air Curtains

Nov. 4, 2021
The Berner AIR Controller/App for Air Curtains is available for both Android and Apple devices.

The Berner AIR Controller is a smart app platform with adaptive settings that connects end-users to their commercial doorway air curtains via the Internet for programming, operating, and monitoring. The app’s adaptive settings energy-efficiently and automatically control air curtain airstreams based on ambient weather conditions and doorway temperature.


The onboard Intelliswitch controller reports local weather conditions (via the Berner AIR’s Internet connection), the doorway temperature (via an onboard sensor), and air curtain model data every 20 minutes to factory servers. Factory engineered software then uses proprietary algorithms to determine the best volume, velocity, and uniformity balance for the given moment and adjusts the fan speed based on the current weather. Pinpointing the most energy-efficient of 10 available air curtain fan speeds helps buildings meet energy conservation, sustainability, and carbon footprint goals, while also supporting thermal comfort.


The BACnet communication capabilities are standard on Berner’s premium Architectural Elite 8 and 10 models, and optional on all other Architectural Series air curtains when ordered with the Berner AIR. BACnet allows programming, operating, and monitoring from the Berner smartphone app or the building management system. The BACnet feature allows the control of preset programming, fan speed, time delay, time/day set, Lock PASScode, and start/stop time.


The secure, fully encrypted platform provides the Berner AIR app for both Android and Apple devices and allows over-the-air system updates.
