AirMaster control panels are designed to be intuitive in operation and come with 2 different levels of control:
- Airlinq ‘L’ control panels, with local control and display fan speed only. All other functions are programmed in from a laptop via USB connection, giving automatic synchronisation with the PC’s date and time. Airlinq ‘L’ is available for the following air handling units:
– AM L 100
– AM L 300
– AM L 500
– AM L 800
– CV 80
– CV 200
- Airlinq ‘P’ control panels enable manual setting of all ventilation functions. Comprehensive information on current performance can be viewed, for example, the CO₂ content of the air. There is a clear display with text description of all warnings and alarms. Airlinq ‘P’ is available for the following air handling units:
– AM P 300
– AM P 500
– AM P 800
– AM P 900
– AM P 1200
– CV 1000
Both types of panel have an on-board data logger, which permits the monitoring of unit performance.
Fan speed can be easily altered using the touch function. Simply apply finger pressure to the radial line showing current fan speed, then move finger along a circular path to reach the radial line corresponding to the required fan speed. And that’s it! The speed change will have taken effect. To avoid unauthorised changes being made, an electronic tamper proof lock can be applied.
The sheer breadth of information available through the Airlinq system makes each control panel a very powerful diagnostic tool, which can provide accurate management of indoor air quality. Here is a shortened version of the functions available:
- Airflow can be demand controlled so as to manage room CO₂ levels.
- Alternatively, demand control can be arranged to optimise room humidity levels.
- Can be selected to ‘property vacant’ mode, where ventilation continues at reduced flow.
- On-going monitoring of filter condition.
- Programming of night cooling, to improve room comfort the following day.
- Continuous data logging at 5-minute intervals, with capacity for 1 year’s data storage. Enables reports to be generated of unit performance and indoor air quality, providing powerful diagnostics to resolve operational issues which may arise.
Where a client may wish to avoid having control panels local to heat recovery ventilation units, operating signals can be sent from one master control panel to a maximum of 20 separate heat recovery ventilation units.
Where a site is provided with a BMS which includes control of ventilation, a network interface module can be provided within each AirMaster heat recovery ventilation (HRV) unit. Modules can be chosen to ensure compatibility with either KNX, BACnet/IP, BACnet MS/TP, LON or MODBUS RTU RS485.
A comprehensive description of Airlinq capabilities is given in the ‘Control and Operation’ brochure of the AirMaster Ventilation in Balance series. If you would like a copy of this, please feel free to contact us.
