ControlTrends reporting from Danbury, Connecticut: During a recent business trip to the Connecticut and Rhode Island areas, I made a short detour to take a look at the new Belimo Headquarters. As I departed the existing Belimo facility, which is impressive in its own right, I realized that my curiosity about Belimo’s new manufacturing facility began two years ago, when Belimo held their press conference April 12, 2012 and Belimo’s Chief Financial Officer, John Coppola, revealed the plans to construct a 200,000-square-foot building to replace the 86,000-square-foot manufacturing facility Old Ridgebury Road.
Well, my high expectations were fully met. The new Belimo facility is an impressive, ultlra-modern, and simply a massive facility that overlooks the peaceful landscape of the neighboring areas. As the Belimo manufacturing facility nears its grand opening, Belimo moves closer to releasing another powerful measure of brand-building, as well as undoubtedly securing their unparalleled future success — and growth.
Some interesting information about the color Orange:
* Physically, the color orange stimulates activity, appetite and our ability to socialize.
* Orange is a color that really stands out, even at a distance, and invites attention.
* The word orange comes from the Sanskrit word naranga. In the early Christian church, orange was a symbol of glory and fruits of the earth. It was also called the wisdom ray.
* In the practice of Feng Shui, colors hold great significance, and orange represents fire.
* Orange helps us focus our powers of concentration, and it’s also the color that’s credited with assisting us in organizing our thoughts and our things.
* An orange vehicle says you are fun loving and trendy.
* Frank Sinatra once said, “Orange is the happiest of colors.”
Belimo’s SY Series actuators were designed to work with their butterfly valves and other quarter turn valve applications. The patented gear drive mechanism provides for efficient, smooth operation while allowing easy manual override at any time. All units have NEMA 4X ratings, and to make life a little easier, wiring diagrams are affixed to the outside of the housing on the permanently attached product label. Other features include:
- Easily visible position indicators
- International standard ISO5211 mounting systems
- Internal thermal motor overload protection
- Dual auxiliary Form C switches
- Easily accessible wiring termination points
These actuators are great for new and retrofit HVAC and Industrial valve applications. Belimo has excellent retrofit solutions for almost any existing valve type.

Belimo’s Energy Valve won the 2012 ControlTrends Award Commercial Product of the Year. Amongst incredible competition, a Belimo Energy Valve repeat performance is possible. With performance serving as the operative word, the MIT research presentation on the Energy Valve remains one of the most compelling engineering endorsements of product performance to date. Belimo is making more energy valve products available. Learn more.
The Belimo Energy Valve is a two-way pressure independent valve that optimizes, documents and proves water coil performance. Using the Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (ePIV) platform, the Energy Valve measures the coil energy using an embedded electromagnetic flow sensor, water supply, and return temperature sensors. The Energy Valve is ideal for water-side control of heating and cooling systems for AHUs and any water coil (equal percentage: heating/cooling application).
Werner Buck’s illustrious career is punctuated by yet another award as the former president of Belimo Aircontrols (USA) and one of the most recognized innovators in the HVAC industry was awarded the inaugural ControlTrends Hall of Fame Award for his outstanding professional and community contributions. ControlTrends will continue its efforts to chronicle the origins, people, and legacies of our HVAC Industry.
We really like the Belimo Zip Economizer.Belimo developed the ZIP Economizer to allow for easy user interaction when setting up or troubleshooting Economizer systems and RTUs. The ZIP Economizer is the most technologically advanced Airside Economizer solution in the market. The ZIP Economizer is designed to provide the most energy savings through advanced economizer logic strategies. The ZIP Economizer is compliant with the most recent energy codes and standards (ASHRAE 90.1-2010, IECC-2012, California Title 24-2013, AHSRAE 189.1-2011). The ZIP Economizer reliability and feature mean economizer no longer have to be jumpered out or fixed closed and results in getting building energy efficiency back on track.
