“The EB has really taken off. I have seen it as the specified product on plans – mostly in high end finish spaces like retail and car dealerships. I’m constantly hearing that it is really easy to install and operate.”

Electro-Balance battery-powered airflow balancing dampers offer remote operation, like the manually-operated model, but provide many additional benefits:
- No Hard Wiring is required – snap fit connectors
- Motor has been tested for a 100k cycles – power is in the hand-held remote control via a 9 volt battery.
- Wiring can be routed in a central location to house up to 8 units into 1 termination port
- Cost savings for runs greater than 8ft
