AIR-CONDITIONING SYSTEMS

VRV III air-conditioning systems feature 460-v three-phase power supplies and capacities of up to 20 tons. With VRV III, up to 41 indoor units can be connected on one piping network. For larger-scale building applications, the systems offer zoning capabilities with up to 200-percent diversity, refrigerant auto-charge functions, and inverter-compressor technology.

BACNET CONTROLLERS

Useful in variable-air-volume (VAV) applications, VAViH-SD BACnet controllers include an integrated direct-coupled brushless actuator, an additional binary output, and an additional universal analog input with a jumper. Pre-loaded direct-digital-control applications provide users with five types of VAV-box controls.

AIR-MEASURING STATIONS

Air Movement and Control Association-certified electronic air-measuring stations from Ruskin electronically measure airflow. The systems utilize air-scoop and heated-mass-flow-sensor technologies. They can communicate with building-automation systems through analog outputs or digitally through network interfaces.

HIGH-EFFICIENCY BOILERS

With a guaranteed combustion efficiency of 85 percent, Compliance+HE-AB Series boilers are equipped with Power Flame NOVA Plus II Ultra Low-NOx gas burners capable of sub-9-ppm operation. The boilers' high efficiency comes from an integrated extended-surface heat extractor and is supported by 7 sq ft of heating surface per boiler horsepower. These forced-draft, gas-fired water boilers run at normal operating temperatures.

STARTING RELAYS

Useful in applications such as air conditioning, commercial refrigeration, and heat pumps, Universal motor-starting relays are wire-for-wire replacements for standard potential relays that operate single-phase motors with a voltage range of 110 to 502 vac. Differential-voltage-sensing technology ensures exact starting voltage.

INFRARED THERMOMETER

Capable of storing up to 20 readings and measuring non-contact and contact temperatures, the wide-range 42515-T infrared thermometer is useful for HVAC applications. Emissivity is manually adjustable, and a backlit liquid-crystal display provides easy-to-read measurements. An adjustable high/low alarm alerts users visually and audibly when temperatures exceed programmed limits.

LIQUID-FILTRATION SYSTEMS

Because automatic liquid-filtration systems' zero-gravity filter elements open during backwash, particles cannot jam in the gap of the usual fixed-wedge wire screen. A permanent stainless-steel filter element with raised ridges on the coil's surface ensures absolute filtration ratings from 25 to 400 microns while eliminating the operating costs of disposable filters.

HEAT-PUMP CHILLERS

Available to serve commercial buildings, schools, airports, hospitals, and other cooling/heating applications, water-to-water and air-to-water heat-pump chillers from Continental produce chilled water during summer and hot water during winter, consuming approximately 50-percent less energy. From 40 to 400 tons, more than 40 factory-mounted options are available.

PORTABLE DEHUMIDIFIERS

Providing humidity control for small-area applications, HPR Series dehumidifiers remove up to 7 lb of moisture per hour. These portable units use an evaporator coil to remove moisture and a second reheat coil to warm supply air and prevent overcooling of a space.
