Environmental sensors for building automation
By EM Staff
Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in designing, manufacturing and marketing of electronic equipment, launches the CGES Series, a new range of sensors designed to measure various indoor environmental parameters, including CO2, humidity, temperature and air velocity.
When CO2 levels rise to an unacceptable level, with poor air quality and stuffy rooms, the CGES sensors can be used to help increase the supply of fresh air into the building and, as a result, improve the indoor air quality. The CGES sensors can be a significant contributor to compliance with ASHRAE 62-1989, which recommends a maximum concentration of 1,000 ppm of CO2 indoors. Additionally, the auto-calibrating feature ensures that the CGES is properly tuned for continuous, worry-free operation.
The CGES Series can also be used to control humidity levels in wet climates, thus elevating the comfort level of the occupants and discouraging the growth of mildew. Air velocity and temperature sensors can be used to keep indoor air temperatures at comfortable levels, and maximize energy efficiency.
All of these new sensors operate on 24 VAC/DC for flexibility, and feature multiple output options, including 0-10V, 4-20mA, and switching. They can be mounted in walls or ducts. The CGES sensors are a complete and versatile solution with applications in office buildings, schools, pools, museums, greenhouses, incubators, and food storage rooms, among many others.
