At Glasstec 2012 in Düsseldorf, Germany, EControl-Glas introduced EControl 55/12 its new generation of switchable solar control glazing. The major novelty: daylight transmission when switching the electrochromic glass to a light shade has been noticeably increased.
 
“We keep improving our product continuously. The increased light
transmittance significantly broadens the range of application for architects.
This makes our glass more than ever
one of the most innovative glazing solutions for residential building and
sustainable object architecture,” said EControl CEO Hartmut Wittkopf.

The new generation of EControl switchable solar control glass,

The main topic of the special exhibit “glass technology live” (hall 11/C28) was new
applications such as trendsetting facade designs that were shown as mock-ups or
large-scale models. It was here where EControl presented their switchable
glazing for the first time ever as a large scale structural glazing facade as
part of a project study.

EControl not only continuously improves their glazing but
also their automatic control: With “EC Comfort” the glass is controlled automatically via information
that is fed from connected outdoor sensors. If a predefined limit (e.g. surface
temperature, outside temperature, precipitation) is reached, the control will
automatically switch the glazing to a darker or lighter shade. This way the
energy input and daylight transmission are controlled automatically and
individually for each room. “This automatic control is particularly interesting
for large-area facades of office buildings. Such rooms require consistently
ideal temperatures yet as much daylight as possible”, explains
Wittkopf.
