Updated Simplicity controls on York commercial products make equipment easier to install, operate and service

MILWAUKEE– Johnson Controls, a global multi-industrial company, is bringing Simplicity® Smart Equipment (SE) controls to its York® brand of commercial packaged and split system products. Soon to be standard on all 3- to 40-ton packaged units, the updated Simplicity SE controls make equipment easier to install, operate and service and provide information that ensures a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is performing to specifications.

An easy-to-read, built-in LCD display and navigation joystick provide quick access to menus displaying unit status, options, current function, supply, return and outdoor temperatures, fault codes and other information. In addition, an optional wireless mobile access portal (MAP) or hardwired networking capabilities allow several users to access one or many units using any device with Wi-Fi® capability and a web browser. Operational and energy-use data, set-points, schedules and diagnostic data can be accessed directly from a smartphone, tablet, laptop or onsite personal computer. In addition, Simplicity SE controls can be configured to use with a standard thermostat, zone sensor or multiple BAS communication protocols to integrate with building automation systems.

Additional features include:

  • Factory-installed supply air, return air and outdoor air temperature sensors provide key temperatures to reduce field-installed complexity.
  • On-board USB port and flash drive provide data logging, current and previous system faults and software update capabilities.
  • Safety monitoring includes status of high- and low-pressure switches, gas valve and high-temperature-limit switches and voltage supplied to the unit.
  • Easy configuration of the SE control when adding field-installed accessories, including smoke detectors, dirty filter switches and select other accessories.


All Simplicity SE controls are factory commissioned, configured and run tested. For more information, visit the York website at http://www.york.com or view the Simplicity SE Controls video on YouTube at http://ow.ly/BZceu.
