Commonly there are two categories of actuators: Thermal or Electrical. Thermal actuators are slow reacting as they are driven by an electric heated wax element. Electrical actuators, which are motor driven, are somewhat faster.
For the FlowCon Energy FIT System we offer the Electrical BACnet SM actuator for the PICV (SM.0.0.0.6). Alternatively, the standard Electrical SM actuators (SM.0.0.0.3 and SM.0.0.0.4) can be used. For FlowCon Energy FIT-G System, our Green-based part of the FIT-range, is offered with the standard Electrical FN actuator (FN.0.2) or FH actuators (FH and FH.1) depending on PICV valve size.
As baseline, all FlowCon actuators are supplied normally closed (NC) and normally open (NO) versions are either available upon request or the change from NC to NO is a built-in feature. Common for most of our actuators is the fact that actuator and valve are developed as a pair to achieve optimal control function.
In addition, the essential Intelligent Interface is required as core data collector and data receiver and communicates with the PICV actuator (optional BACnet), the BMS system (BACnet), the temperature sensors and pressure sensors as well as - via Bluetooth® - to the FlowCon App providing full data on ΔT, ΔP, Flow and Energy.
