Temperature, Carbon Dioxide and Humidity all in one Monitor
Dec 11 2012
The Ventostat 8000 series, from GE Measurement & Control (USA), which monitors temperature, carbon dioxide (CO2) and humidity via one cost effective transmitter unit, is now available with the BACnet communication protocol. This means that all three measurand signals can be transmitted using a single communication wire to a building’s existing BACnet system. This brings significant savings in installation costs and improves the overall integrity of the monitoring system.
The BACnet standard was developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and has been made publically available so that manufacturers can create interoperable systems of products. As Chris Ranwell, product manager at GE, explains, “We believe that BACnet is a valuable communication protocol for our HVAC products and see BACnet as a positive trend in the market place.”
The Ventostat 8000 series monitors temperature, carbon dioxide (CO2) and humidity via one cost effective transmitter unit. This allows building managers to easily control indoor air quality within a building management system. Through monitoring, energy loss from over ventilation can be reduced and may provide building owners savings of up to 20% of the ventilation costs. “The combination of humidity, temperature and CO2 monitoring is a new process that provides our customers with lower purchase and installation cost,” continues Chris Ranwell.
