Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) controllers integrate with the building ventilation system to modulate the amount of outdoor air based on input from a CO2 sensor. They can be used to save energy during low occupancy and improve indoor air quality during high occupancy.Learn More
Ventilation controller with economizer with modular upgrade to allow for CO2-based demand control ventilation capabilities.
- Monochrome LCD display and buttons for commissioning, troubleshooting, or viewing status.
- Optional module available for BACnet MS/TP communication.
- Good performance under Hub simulated occupancy profiles.
- Modular expansions available.

|Model number||ECON-ZIP-BASE (base unit) with ECON-ZIP-EM (energy module)|
|Power Supply||24 VAC +/- 20%, 50/60 Hz|
|CO2 Sensor Compatibility||Universal – Works with any CO2 sensor that has the ability to output compatible signal (see "Controller CO2 Sensor Input Signal Types" for compatible signal requirements)|
|Controller CO2 Sensor Input Signal Types||0-10 VDC, 0-2000 ppm Analog|
|Actuator Signal Output Types||2-10 VDC|
|Nominal Power Consumption||5.5 VA base control with Energy Module (ECON-ZIP-BASE + ECON-ZIP-EM). 6.5 VA base with Energy Module and Communication Module (ECON-ZIP-BASE + ECON-ZIP-EM + ECON-ZIP-COM).|
|Economizer Control Options||Single dry bulb change over, Single enthalpy change over, Differential dry bulb change over, Differential enthalpy change over"|
|Other Inputs||Additional analog inputs for the ECON-ZIP-BASE unit include supply air temperature, outdoor air temperature, outdoor air humidity, return air temperature, and return air humidity. Additional binary inputs for the ECON-ZIP-BASE unit include first cooling stage status (Y1), second cooling stage status (Y2), heating stage status (W1), and fan status (G). Additional analog input for the ECON-ZIP-EM module includes a remote potentiometer input (for remote damper overrides). Additional binary inputs for the ECON-ZIP-EM includes a purge contact input (for pre-occupancy purge of VOCs).|
|Other Outputs||Additional binary outputs for the ECON-ZIP-BASE unit includes commands for up to two stages of mechanical cooling. Additional binary outputs for the ECON-ZIP-EM module includes indoor fan low speed enable and exhaust fan enable.|
|Controller Configuration Method||Local (display)|
|Controller Response to CO2 Sensor Failure/Power Loss||The controller logic is reconfigured to ignore DCV settings. DCV settings are maintained in memory and restored when power is restored, but the menu is reconfigured to remove DCV associated entities. Controller defaults to lowest minimum position (setting: Vent Min Pos).|
|Manufacturer Reported Control Algorithm Details||None found|
|Supported Communication Protocols||BACnet MS/TP communication.|
