DANBURY, Conn. — Belimo Americas has designed a new smart zone valve in partnership with Automated Logic Corporation (ALC). The intelligent valve, OptiPoint™, is a customized Belimo ZoneTight™ valve with enhanced MP-Bus communication. Automated Logic required their next-generation Bus connected valve assemblies provide superior performance with little effort to commission and operate in the field.

The new smart valve offers seamless connectivity, reliability, and communication to Automated Logic WebCTRL© building automation system (BAS) providing operators with access to valve performance data from anywhere at any time. The field-adjustable flow capacity setting helps technicians ensure the design requirements are met.

“Our entire range of solutions are constantly evolving and becoming smarter and more data rich, said Daniel Caldwell, key account manager, Belimo. “Communicating and presenting these valuable digital assets is in high demand. By partnering with ALC, we worked together to create a technological bridge to their WebCTRL building automation system.”

The OptiPoint valves – Belimo customized ZoneTight valves are available for both pressure-dependent and pressure-independent applications featuring a compact design for easy installation in tight spaces. The valve actuator provides fail open, fail close, or fail in position to meet design requirements. Up to two valves can be connected, minimizing wiring and eliminating the need to use the controller's physical I/O to manage the valve. The actuators snap directly to the valve body allowing quick installation without the use of tools further reducing labor costs. For more information, visit www.belimo.us.
