Acorn Controls BASyC

York Memorial Hospital | Harrisburg, PA

York Memorial Hospital

An engineer in Pennsylvania, a loyal user of Armstrong’s “The Brain” and a fan of the new Powers Intellistation, was introduced to BASyC™ during his design of the York Memorial Hospital expansion.  This hospital already had four “Brains” and was about the get a 5th, if not a Powers Intellistation.  Despite Acorn’s last-in-the-game status, the design engineer soon came to realize that BASyC™ should not only be favored for this opportunity, but it justified his rejection of both Armstrong and Powers because, in his exact words, “BASyC™ is a superior solution”.  He recognized the benefits of our open architecture and low-cost customization, which lead him to also tell us “I’m excited to get a BASyC™ into one of my projects and make it my standard going forward.”  He asked us to join him to present BASyC™ to the head of plumbing for York Memorial Hospital, a unit of Pinnacle Health.  Upon presenting BASyC™ the facility engineer’s response to the design engineer was “This is the digital mixing solution I want going forward, proprietary solutions (he means all competing products) are now unacceptable”.  The result: a large order for a BASyC™ system with redundancy of capacity and automatic pump alternating controlled by BASyC™ to s user-selectable time cycle (7, 30, 60 or 90 days) plus an “activate anytime” pump alternation and automatic cycle suspend capability. The only competitor who can offer these features and benefits is, as of today is… you guessed it…NO ONE.  Plus, this engineer’s spec on the next three projects will have the same pump control requirements, once again putting a major roadblock in front of all competitors.
