FLIR Systems, has addressed that need with its intrinsically safe OGI camera – the GFx320. Continue reading

Sensor Maintenance for Optimal Energy Savings in HVAC

Vaisala Knowledge HVAC Spotlight

Sensor Maintenance for Optimal Energy Savings in HVACOnline  —  Pressure to cut energy consumption in HVAC is driving use of DCV and free cooling.

Even with an intelligent building automation system in place, it’s of very little use if the actual measurement sensor has drifted or if the accuracy requirements can’t be maintained during the lifetime of the building.

In this article published in the special issue of REHVA Vaisala’s product manager Lars Stormbom discusses sensor maintenance for optimal energy savings in HVAC. Continue reading
