AAON Pioneer Silver and Pioneer Gold controllers are designed for small packaged water-source heat pump units. The Pioneer controllers are designed, engineered, and supported by AAON. All of the energy saving features and options available on AAON WH and WV Series water-source pumps can be controlled with these systems.



The Pioneer Silver controller is the standard controller configuration for basic water-source heat pump systems with terminals for connection to a heat pump thermostat. All AAON stocked water-source heat pumps include the Pioneer Silver. An expansion board allows for control of premium options, such as hot gas reheat and waterside economizer.

The Pioneer Gold controller is the advanced controller configuration for water-source heat pump systems. With space sensors and touchscreen interface the Pioneer Gold can be used for standalone control. The controller also includes terminals for connection to a DDC system or heat pump thermostat. BACnet IP/MSTP and Modbus communication protocols are available directly from the Pioneer Gold.
