With updated wi-fi and 5G compatibility as well as patents pending, the product is likely to be in demand by smart builders around the world
Bollente Companies will unveil the next generation of its award-winning tankless water heating technology at the International Builders Show (IBS), which runs 10-12 January in Orlando, Florida.
Enhancements to the trutankless smart water heater include updated wi-fi capabilities, compatibility with 5G wireless technology, a new touchscreen with improved user interface, and refined thermal efficiencies.
A free app for iOS and Android communicates with the wi-fi system to provide the user with operating performance, and any alerts are sent directly to a compatible smartphone, enabling remote access from anywhere in the world.
Because the new unit operates at both 50Hz and 60Hz frequencies, it will run in the majority of international buildings. It also meets European Union RoHS compliance standards and is FCC certified.
Earlier this year, the company was granted 32 patent claims protecting its technology. Several new claims are currently pending. The patents represent key advancements that are driving demand for trutankless among builders and remodellers around the world.
“trutankless remains at the forefront of water heating technology,” said Michael Stebbins, president of trutankless. "We were the first to successfully fuse eco-conscious, electric tankless engineering with smart home capabilities, and we’ve never stopped innovating. We’re looking forward to showcasing the new trutankless at this year’s IBS show, where it all began for us."
The company launched its first-generation trutankless unit at the IBS show in 2014, where it was named Best Home Technology Product. trutankless also took home the Governor’s Award of Merit for Energy and Technology Innovation at Arizona Forward’s Environmental Excellence Awards in the same year.
Since then, the product has garnered a multitude of accolades for its forward-thinking technology and energy efficiency, including a silver award in the Appliance Design Excellence in Design contest, a Special Mention in the Architizer A+ Awards, and was named a Hot Product by the editors of Green Builder Magazine.
The International Builders Show will feature a High Performance Building Zone with top building science experts leading a series of live, interactive construction demos showcasing the latest methods, tips and tricks used in high performance building.
