The integration of the NetX and AMX systems can control a variety of HVAC system types, including rooftops, forced-air splits, fan coil units, VAV and VVT systems, VRFs, and mini-splits. The AMX’s NetLink controller communicates with NetX X-Series thermostats and wired remote sensors to provide valuable insights into how to optimize their heating and cooling systems for greater efficiency.
