Actuators - Actuator dampers are designed to open or close valves. Modulate air pressure or temperature. They are also essential in saving lives in the case of a fire or chemical contamination. Controlled remotely by a digital system they can close off sections of a building and or allow different temperatures between workspaces for the occupants' comfort.
Control Valves – Valves control the size of the airflow outlet passage. They are opened and closed by actuators controlled by the digital control system.
Sensors – Sensors in HVAC systems measure temperature, humidity, pressure, and air quality. They connect to the digital system and the building automation system. High-quality sensors ensure occupant health and comfort. By monitoring the airflow between rooms, the system can optimise performance and minimize energy waste.
