When asked about Computrols’ HVAC controls solutions, F.E. Moran Mechanical Services Tom Rogers, said, “I really like the flexibility of the controllers. One controller can do almost anything just by manipulating the software. Also, any point on their controllers can be configured as an input or output. No other controls company can do that.”


Mike Clayton, Computrols’ Manager of Strategic Partnerships, said, “Tom and F.E. Moran Mechanical Services understand and communicate the value of Computrols building automation systems as well as any distribution partner we have. They have become experts at implementing our CSI I/NET integration and controlling large-scale HVAC systems through CBAS.”

Rogers concluded, “one of my favorite parts of working with Computrols is how responsive they are. Everyone on their team is really passionate about the company and that extends to their network of distribution partners.”

F.E. Moran Mechanical Services is a part of the Moran Group of companies which was founded as a boiler and radiator installation service provider in 1931. Today, the business has blossomed into a turnkey construction group that includes HVAC services, custom pipe and sheet metal fabrication, fire protection, special hazard systems, mechanical services, and plumbing.

This is the second annual Distribution Partner of the Year Award given by Computrols. The 2016 winner was Williams Mechanical of Jonesboro, AR. The main criteria for the award is a passionate commitment to representing Computrols products.

Northbrook, IL -- Tom Roger, F.E. Moran Mechanical Services' Building Controls Manager explains why he chose Computrols over their competitors for his I/NET Integration solution.

Computrols has provided a proven integration solution to I/NET 7 and I/NET 2000 systems for nearly a decade that can be found in facilities across the country. Unlike other I/NET integration solutions that rely on slow serial ports, our engineers have developed a solution that resides directly on the controller LAN and SubLAN and allows the existing I/NET 2000 or I/NET 7 workstations to remain in place as needed.
