Communicating using the latest Zigbee 3.0

technology the TPZRCO2THZ3 is designed to communicate to compatible 3rd party hubs and co ordinators opening up the opportunity to add wireless CO2 monitoring to Zigbee 3.0 or HA1.2 ecosystems. By monitoring CO2 and using the measurements to

ventilate spaces on demand, productivity in working and learning environments can be greatly improved and air quality can be maintained at a comfortable level making the sensors perfect for a wide range of applications including commercial, residential and education buildings. Providing an excellent five year battery life, the

wireless sensors provide increased flexibility in mounting location, ease of install and much lower installation costs over wired sensor types as no cable runs are required. The CO2 sensor offers Temperature and Humidity

aving the time to undertake any training can be difficult, that is why today many more industry professionals, like you,

are turning to the Grundfos Ecademy. Regardless of if your focus is on large or small projects, or if you are involved with supplying or specifying pumps within a domestic setup or in larger commercial buildings; or perhaps you operate mainly within industrial applications or specialise in water utilities; there are specific modules that have been designed to help you to gain a deeper insight into a range of pump facts. The Grundfos Ecademy has steadily been

increasing its reach in recent years and with the advent of a wide range of new topics, that are all available to you 24/7 from a smartphone, tablet or computer, there are even more reasons to make this hub a firm favourite. The Ecademy continues to be committed to

delivering on its promise to incorporate a diverse range of themes. This means the subjects that are covered go across many different applications, various pump product families as well as looking at the theory behind the engineering. Plus, all of these lessons, are delivered in handy bite sized chunks.

wegon has launched a new range of smoke control dampers. The Actionair

SmokeCommand range has been introduced in response to growing demand for improvements in fire and smoke safety strategies throughout UK buildings. Swegon’s approach ensures

that specifiers have all the information necessary to ensure the smoke control dampers they select meet all regulatory and product standard requirements and, crucially, can be tested in conjunction with all other elements of the fire safety strategy to ensure all the components work in harmony and are appropriate for the building in question. Actionair SmokeCommand

dampers are CE Marked single and multiple compartment dampers and are classified to product standard EN135014 and tested to EN 136610. These slim, lightweight, metal multi bladed products are designed for duct installation using either a rectangular flange or rectangular spigot. They use a twoposition actuator for drive open and drive close operation. As smoke can spread rapidly

through a building’s ductwork system, the dampers must be activated as soon as smoke is detected – reacting to thermal sensing can often be too late. SmokeCommand dampers can be interfaced with the building’s fire alarm system via the Actionpac damper control panel for automatic activation to clear

smoke from the affected area, manual override for post fire smoke clearance is also possible. This means users can be reassured that the system will work quickly when needed. Building owners also view the status of the dampers along with receiving notifications, reports and testing updates. These dampers meet the strict

smoke control requirements by moving to an open or closed position less than 60 seconds after receiving an alarm. They will remain open for up to 120 minutes to allow the safe extraction of smoke and increase the amount of time available to evacuate the building. They are able to maintain their position because they have no thermal device to cause uncontrolled operation and no automatic return mechanism. As well as helping to clear

evacuation routes by keeping stairwells and other passages clear during a fire, SmokeCommand dampers play a critical role in extracting heat from a building and can complement the use of fire sprinklers in helping to manage the impact of a fire. Some dampers will be venting

smoke and others closing to manage the movement of the smoke, so it is crucial for a smoke control damper to have low leakage in the closed position and also when open to extract smoke in a controlled way. BUILDING SERVICES & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER FEBRUARY 2020 39
