New Programmable Actuator Offers Unlimited Control OptionsNew Belimo Programmable Actuator

DANBURY CT - Imagine you have a small ddc controller assigned to control a fan system that has three analog and three binary outputs. One analog output is for a chilled water valve actuator and another for a hot water valve actuator. The third analog output is for outside air, return air and mixed air damper actuators in the economizer. Two of the binary outputs are for supply fan and return fan start and stop. That leaves you with one binary output left, and you wanted to add a modulating actuator on a minimum outside air damper to the system. What do you do?

In the past you would have had to add an additional controller with an analog output or order an 'odd ball' actuator to fill the need. Today you can specify the new Belimo AM24-SR actuator with Multi-Function Technology for all the actuators in the system, and simply switch one of them from 2 to 10 VDC to Pulse Width Modulation using a hand-held electronic device, the Belimo MFT-Handy.

This is just one example of the flexibility afforded by Belimo's Multi-Function Technology, or MFT. The new AM24-SR actuator from Belimo is the first to offer MFT. Eventually modulating actuators in all the Belimo torque ranges, 35 to 266 in-lb, spring- and non-spring return, will feature MFT. Now one actuator can fulfill multiple roles, easing the logistics associated with installing actuators of different types on a project. The flexibility afforded by MFT does not end with the control signal. Users can change the parameters of virtually any actuator function: control, feedback, torque output, running time, and rotation. They can also use MFT for actuator data logging and identification.

Circon Systems Corporation Provides End User Flexibility With WebControl™

Circon WebControlCircon WebControl provides a web interface for your LonWorks® network. WebControl builds on the Coactive Connector® 1000 product offered by Coactive Networks and provides an application specific to Circon networks. This graphical user interface offers the following benefits to end-users: · Multiple user access to building automation system · View information anywhere, anytime · Simplify the user interface for casual users · Reduce end user training by using popular browser clients · Flexibility in operating systems

Flexible monitoring and control means that the facility manager can access the system through popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape. They can monitor and change setpoints in selected nodes or specific network variables.

The system is easily implemented because Circon Engineering Services provides an end-to-end solution including configuration and web page development with applets. Circon WebControl is easily installed like any LonWorks node or any computer device onto a local area network. There are no architecture or changes necessary to installed products.

Circon WebControl is flexible to be customized to the end user's needs. The web-based interface increases access to the control network, reduces user training costs, and can be easily linked to a corporate website. In addition, Circon WebControl simplifies web server maintenance by using an integrated web server for hosting web pages. The Circon WebControl applets are designed for Circon controllers and are flexible enough to be incorporated into web pages that reflect the customer's corporate identity.
