Belimo ePIVBelimo - New Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (ePIV) with Electronic Flow Control

Danbury, Connecticut - Belimo Americas, the leading producer of electronic valves and air damper actuators, introduces a new Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (ePIV). The ePIV a two-way valve directly measuring flow by combining a magnetic flow meter and a 2-way control valve offering control, balance and shut-off. The actuator modulates the control valve to maintain flow regardless of pressure variations. Flow reading is reported back to the controller. The ePIV is designed for building automation systems to perform control and energy strategies. The product range currently consists of 2 ½” and 3” valve sizes and will expand in December to 4”, 5” and 6”.

Spartan ME8300 Wireless ActuatorSpartan Peripheral Devices - ME8300 Wireless Actuator

The ME8300 family of wireless control valve actuators is designed for 2 way communication with other devices based on the EnOcean protocol.

Now based on the new TCM320(C) Dolphin Chipset from EnOcean an easy integration allowed Spartan Peripheral Devices to introduce a standardized 2 way communicating actuator. Two way communication and integration into a BACnet/LON gateway, supporting multiple devices wireless and wired, is now possible. Being a modulating unit it can be precisely positioned to flow requirement. This 2 way communication allows carrying extra information to a controller (feedback). Position feedback of the actuator confirms the functionality of the actuator, dual temperature feedback is also available. Temperature sensor can be used to monitor room or media temperature all in the same single actuator, without using an extra point on your controller. Feedback returned to the BAS system gives you extra control without extra cost.
