Introduction of the new sensors with their Importance to ensure 24/7 safety of HVAC systems

We all know the importance and usefulness of sensors and remote monitoring systems that can help us with proactive maintenance and prevent HVAC equipment malfunctions or failures. For many years EDAC remote monitoring systems have been helping customers by providing sensors to monitor vital environmental and operating conditions in HVAC systems.

Conditions that require continuous monitoring like, temperature, humidity, power failure, water leaks, and equipment failure are very important in environmental monitoring. With the use of an EDAC monitoring system, you can provide users the ability to monitor conditions and receive alarms via the built-in auto dialler remotely.

EDAC also supplies sensors that are used to measure airflow in ductwork, the pressure differential in ducts and rooms, and dew point. The sensors can be used with any EDAC HVAC remote monitoring device that accepts a 4-20mA of an input signal.

Duct Mount Air Flow TransmitterDuct Mount Air Flow Transmitter: To measure the rate of airflow and user alerts, this sensor is used with the EDAC system when conditions cross the threshold pre-set value. The sensor in the transmitter checks the availability of cool moving air and measures relative airflow from a 0-16 meters per second.

Differential Pressure SensorDifferential Pressure Sensor: The sensor is able to measure the air pressure in two areas and displays, if found, a difference in the readings. The sensor is widely used where a specific pressure differential maintenance is required. This sensor is used to check for the presence of a vacuum upon opening a door that could pull dust or other pollutants into the space. Differential Pressure is also used in air handlers. The sensor comes with a kit that allows measurements to be taken in ductwork or an attractive wall mount kit to measure ambient room pressure.

Dew Point SensorDew Point Sensor: To protect the system environment from atmospheric changes, we need a number of sensors to measure atmospheric conditions. Similarly, Dewpoint sensors are used to measure the temperature and humidity in the air that may condense and turn into dew. Dew point is critical in dehumidification systems that remove the moisture in environments like manufacturing plants. In refineries, this plays a crucial role as it requires dry air as moisture breeds fouling of sensors and actuators and promote rusting. The sensor comes enclosed in a Dew point weatherproof enclosure that is suitable for use in outdoor environments.

HVAC Applications:

These sensors are widely used to monitor conditions in the following systems:

  • Cooling towers
  • Air- and water-cooled chillers
  • Air Handlers
  • Refrigeration units
  • Power generators
  • Control rooms
  • Office environments
  • Data centres

An EDAC system not only monitors, it is also responsible for sending alerts when any conditions change from the normal range. With instant alarm alerts, you can take instant action before potential damage occurs. And with our monitoring systems, you can also see real-time status remotely from internet-connected devices.

Once connected, you can also collect data from all the sensors. This data logging feature is useful for keeping tabs on your systems and keeping records of compliance. Sensor readings are securely archived and readily available from anywhere via cloud-based storage. It is fast and easy to print, graph or export accurate historical records, creating an audit trail of all user data activities, edits or deletions.
