Fresh-Aire UV introduced the Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel, a control panel that automates the monitoring of UV-C wavelength feedback, safety, and efficacy for new air handling unit (AHU) FAUV Commercial Series UV light systems.
The UV-Com™ Control Panel from UV Resources provides a means of monitoring multiple Ultraviolet “C” (UV-C) fixtures installed in individual air handling units (AHUs). According to the manufacturer, the UV-Com easily automates the conventional means of “manually checking” that lamps and ballasts are operational and communicates this lamp status to most BAS and BMS. A single UV-Com control panel can simultaneously monitor up to eight separate UV-C fixtures. Multiple UV-Com panels can be linked together in a daisy-chain sequence in order to monitor as many individual UV-C fixtures as necessary.
Butler Manufacturing says building owners can now incorporate daylighting into existing buildings to minimize lighting-related electricity costs with the introduction of the RetroLite™ daylighting system. According to company officials, implementing daylighting technology can provide significant savings, as lighting-related electricity is often the highest operating expense in a building — frequently exceeding heating and cooling costs.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned. Read more in April issue
