Temperzone’s OPA2100 ECO ULTRA is Highly Commended at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2020

Temperzone’s OPA2100 ECO ULTRA is continuing to impress people not only in Australia but internationally, after receiving the CIBSE Highly Commended award for the Product or Innovation of the Year - Thermal Comfort category. The 200 kW rooftop package unit features four inverter compressors and a unique humidity control system.

Eco ULTRA’s Humidity Intelligence – Adaptive software measures the temperature and humidity, both indoor and outdoor, while monitoring building occupancy and time, allowing it to continually maintain the desired comfort levels, all while operating efficiently. Additionally, its ability to follow patterns, ensures the ECO ULTRA will choose setting options that correspond to certain weather-heat load combinations.

Able to operate with or without external intervention, ECO ULTRA’s in-built Adaptive software reacts to its environmental surroundings, and changes its operation to continuously generate desired comfort outcomes. Put simply, it understands consumers’ needs and reacts instantly to prevailing conditions in order to meet them. And because it has the ability to follow patterns, ECO ULTRA can even choose setting options that correspond to certain weather-heat load combinations.

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Awards recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment. Now in their 13th year, the awards are also unique in that they are the only industry Awards that focus on actual, measured performance outcomes, and not just design intent or performance specifications. The awards are open to organisations, both in the UK and internationally, that are responsible for the design, commissioning, construction, installation and operation of low energy buildings and the manufacturers whose products enable efficient energy consumption.

The award’s detailed and stringent judging criteria ensure that those people, products and projects that have been shortlisted have provided evidence to demonstrate actual measured performance and not just design intent or performance specifications. Winning this award recognises not only the hard work that went into the research, development, design and manufacture of the ECO ULTRA but also the fact that it does what it says it will do. This year, the 25 highly qualified judges presented the first ever highly commended award to the OPA at the 2020 CIBSE Building Performance Awards Dinner, to be held in London on Tuesday 11 February 2020. Group Brand Manager Damien Walsh was on hand to receive the award.

Temperzone’s OPA2100 ECO ULTRA has also been shortlisted for this year’s ARBS Product Excellence Award. For more information on this internationally recognised product click here to download the brochure and contact your local branch.

Technical Notes:

The 15 ~ 200kw Air Conditioning rooftop package (OPA_2100_EcoULTRA) is specifically designed to target dew point temperature utilising EC technology for energy conscious clientele. Traditionally air conditioning is controlled solely on temperature however our product is unique as it also focuses on moisture content in air leading to precise cooling applications.

The unit’s equipped with 4 refrigeration systems two of which contain a hot gas reheat coil. BLDC inverter driven compressors and EC permanent magnet fans are standard features. An Onboard unit controller communicates over modbus protocol to all the major components.

The control offers a unique approach based on an intuitive algorithm that adjusts compressor speeds as the room load changes. This approach plays perfectly to part load efficiencies by drastically reducing the energy demand on the building and improving comfort conditions due to curbing out extreme high and low temperature fluctuations when a unit is running to meet the target setpoint.

In addition, the controller has pre-selected optimisation modes that are designed to suit different climates and applications. By tailoring the control strategy based on the climate and application, the unit can adjust and perform at its desired optimum. In addition the unit is availble in R32, the first 200kW unit with this option to provide lower GWP solutions to our customers.

New Ducted Zone Controller from Hitachi

A new 8 zone controller has been released by Hitachi to complement our 10kW to 16kW split ducted systems. Temperzone staff had direct input into the product development to ensure it met the needs of the local market

North Kellyville Public School - NSW

North Kellyville Public School opened its doors to students for the first time earlier this year, with Hitachi VRF ensuring the students were nice and cool during the long hot summer.


The first of our next generation range of R32 Inverter water cooled plant room or cupboard package units (CWP) will be available for installation in March / June 2020. The 10kW unit is designed to replace multiple R22 and R410A units.


Northland DHB were able to save hundreds of thousands in annual energy costs and maintenance costs along with significant reductions in carbon emissions through the replacement of diesel boilers with unique MAGNUS heat pump water heater technology.

Frost Wash on 'S' series RAC

Frost Wash is a revolutionary new cleaning technology for Hitachi Wall Splits that removes 91% of Bacteria and 87% of mould from the indoor unit coil.

NRL Sponsorship

Temperzone is excited to announce that the Hitachi Cooling & Heating brand is a new corporate partner with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NRL team. Hitachi will be their shorts sponsor for the upcoming 2020 season.
