Fluke Corp. has expanded the capabilities of its Condition Monitoring system to include thermal monitoring with the addition of the new Fluke® 3550 FC Thermal Imaging Sensor. Fluke officials said maintenance managers can now collect a more comprehensive variety of key-indicator data — thermal imaging, voltage, current, temperature, and power — on critical equipment to build a real-time picture of an asset’s condition.
Vibration fluctuations in HVAC systems are an early indicator of problems that cause equipment failure such as pump cavitation, unbalanced fans, and bad bearings. Sensaphone’s® new Vibration Sensor can be permanently mounted on equipment like generators, cooling towers, fans, and circulating pumps on chillers and boilers to continuously monitor vibration velocity and detect unusual conditions.
The Sensaphone® Airflow Sensor measures the rate of airflow and alerts data center managers when conditions fall outside the ideal range. The sensor monitors the presence or absence of cool moving air and provides relative airflow as a percentage from 0 to 100.
MEMSIC Inc. has created its MEMS based pressure sensor designed for VAV damper control as well as HVC applications such as room pressure monitoring, fume hood controls, furnace press switches, heat recovery systems, burner control, fan control, filter monitoring, and many others.
Will my smoke control system work properly during a fire? That is the question all building owners/operators should ask themselves. Smoke control systems are unique in that they often sit dormant (sometimes for years) and problems that can affect their operation may not be identified until it is too late. To ensure the right answer when you need it, catch up on device monitoring, commissioning, and why the self-test concept has received a bad rap.
Kohler Power Systems is launching an all-new line of large natural gas generators designed specifically for standby, prime, or continuous power applications in the North American market. The new line of large gas gensets, which will be available in nodes ranging from 425 kW to 1,300 kW, meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) operational requirements and offer advanced control and monitoring capabilities through the Kohler Decision-Maker® 8000 digital controller.
The Filterscan® WiFi Air Filter Monitor and Notification System from CleanAlert issues text/e-mail alerts when an air filter needs servicing –—ideal for operations or property managers responsible for servicing large or multiple facilities.
