Brought to you by: Schneider Electric

A TAC AC256M Plus system was installed by the hotel engineering staff at The Breakers in 1990. This basic system controlled and monitored the air conditioning equipment and the domestic hot water distribution pumps.

Advanced Controls upgraded the system to TAC's next generation product, TAC Infinity, utilizing almost all of the existing AC256 hardware.
