We focus so much on BACnet these days that we sometimes forget about Lon. We still come across lots of government jobs that use Lon as their preferred network. One of the best kept secrets when it comes to Lon controls, is a company called Loytec. As you can see in this video, they make quality controllers and accessories. We have had very good success at Stromquist & Company with Loytec, and can speak very highly of the brand.

In this 30 minute webinar you will learn about the new Belimo 6-Way ePIV and its innovative design for more energy efficient operations. This pressure independent control valve features heating and cooling circuits that are hydronically decoupled allowing each sequence to be controlled individually by the actuator. The combination of the 6-Way ePIV and ultrasonic flow meter allows the smart actuator to compensate pressure fluctuation in the system providing the designed flow to each terminal unit. Register now to find out how you can achieve better control and cut costs while increasing your buildings performance.
Belimo 6-way pressure independent control valves feature heating and cooling circuits which are hydronically decoupled because of the innovative ball design. Each sequence is controlled individually by the rotary movement of the actuator. The valve is bubble-tight in the closed position preventing energy losses, improves efficiency, and helps reduce operating costs.
* One valve performs change over and modulating control for single coil 4 pipe system providing less system maintenance
* Support different flow requirements of both hot and chilled water with one valve (one valve multiple GPM’s possible)
* True close-off to isolate both heating and cooling loops providing system efficiency
* Less power consumption with using only one valve and actuator assembly
* Enhanced communication with BACnet, MS/TP, and Modbus RTU provide superior application data access for easy troubleshooting, commissioning, and programming
* True flow with accuracy to ±2% (commission with verification)
These Siemens videos will give you important insight into an effective energy savings idea, review easy-to-install procedures, and walk you through the setup of Siemens’ new economizer products. The second video will show you where the equipment is connected to the controller and how to set the shut-off temperature set points, minimum damper position, optional enthalpy [Read more…]
