This Siemens Hydronic Flow Optimization video makes a strong case for using Siemens’ PICV in conjunction with their BT300 VFD series for maximum occupant comfort and energy savings by assuring accurate flow changes are made when needed.
Siemens’ Hydronic Flow Optimization: How to Maximize Hydronic System Efficiency: About 41% of our worldwide energy is consumed in buildings, and 41% of that is used by HVAC and hydronic systems. Learn how commercial buildings use hydronic systems and how Siemens’ innovative variable frequency drives and pressure independent control valves reduce hydronic systems’ power and energy needs to dynamically control flow and optimize these systems in new or existing buildings.
Optergy tenancy provides building automation contractors a unique opportunity to differentiate themselves from other contractors by bundling more project scope. Optergy tenancy enables building owners to recover utility costs through billing of tenants for electricity, gas, water, thermal energy (chilled & hot) and after hours air-conditioning override. Optergy produces consumption reports in CSV and PDF or can automatically issue a formal invoice to building tenants.
Dashboards, foyer displays and weather data combined allows the contractor to turn raw data into contextual and meaningful information that effectively communicates to building occupants.
Optergy tenancy features allow the system to automatically generate content for tenants that include:
• Utility billing
• After hours override and billing
• Foyer displays
• Weather data
Utilities such as electricity, gas, water and thermal (chilled & hot) can be easily metered/sub-metered and
assigned to tenants for billing based on usage. Tenants that occupy multiple spaces can have multiple meters
contribute to a single final bill per utility type. The bill itself can be configured to reflect property
management branding, tariff charges, how to pay options and configured for automatic email distribution.
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…]

There is a new player in the sensor game, that wants to revolutionize the way sensors are done in smart buildings, do you know who it is?
“Making the turn” is not just a golf term, find out how it relates to John Donahue, Kele and the Smart Buildings Controls world.
As the man, the myth, the legend, Ken Smyers, and I complete our fall travel schedules, we will be getting back to the weekly ControlTalk Now Episodes starting next week. Until then, please enjoy this much shorter version of the show.
In this webinar you will learn how Belimo’s advancements in airside economizing address recent changes to the industry’s energy codes & regulations. The patented Belimo ZIP Economizer™ has been developed for easy use with ZIP Code setup, live display of operating conditions, and self-diagnostics making it the economizer of choice when selecting a code compliant solution for retrofitting your RTU. Join this discussion to ensure your economizer is up to date with the new codes & regulation changes.
Correcting Low ∆T in Buildings with District Cooling
Chilled water provided from a utility plant is commonly used in a building’s HVAC system in lieu of installing chillers. This results in lower return water temperatures which decreases the efficiency of the entire chilled water system resulting in the condition known as “Low ∆T Syndrome.” In this webinar we will review the design of a district chilled water system and discuss a study of a building where “Low ∆T Syndrome” was corrected at the point of water to air heat transfer.

The Belimo Energy valve was awarded the 2016 Energy Savings Solution of the Year the 2016 ControlTtends Awards. This is not the Belimo Energy valve’s first win in this category, having won in 2014 and 2015. This unique control valve combines the Belimo pressure independent flow strategy with a supply and return temperature sensor which allows the valve to control off of Delta T. Not only do you have BTU data but you can gain an additional 20-30% energy savings. Well done Belimo.
