Belimo releases new airflow measurement and control actuators
DANBURY, Connecticut, 8 April 2020: Belimo released new standalone airflow measurement and control actuators, the company said through an April 7 Press release. The devices come with digital communications for rotary, linear and induct applications, the company said. Select actuators have pressure-independent control characteristics combined with an integrated differential pressure sensor to calculate and deliver designed flow, regardless of pressure fluctuations in the system, Belimo added.
According to Belimo, the actuators communicate directly with the Building Automation System (BAS), using BACnet, Modbus or MP-Bus. Select models, Belimo said, offer Near Field Communication (NFC) for quick programming, commissioning and troubleshooting, leading to optimal system performance. Belimo said the actuators, with industry-standard digital communications, represent the perfect solution for integration in constant or variable air volume systems, or open-loop applications.
“NFC and the Belimo Assistant App make it quick and easy for contractors and facility managers to commission, diagnose and troubleshoot this series of damper actuators,” said Howard Smith, Belimo Product Manager. “Once VAV box parameters are known or measured, the system can be set up and calibrated simply by holding a phone up to the actuator.”
