Hold the music! These sensors will rock…in Beta – to be continued

System: Automated Logic

All beta sites must be running WebCTRL 5.5

The new ZS Sensors will offer the ability to provide multiple sensing technologies in a single housing. In addition to sensing temperature the sensors will have options for sensing humidity, CO2 and VOC(Volatile Organic Compounds). Any of the sensor models (Base, Plus, Pro or Pro-F) can be ordered to support a mix of up to 3 sensing elements. Note: temperature is always included and CO2 and VOC are mutually exclusive.

In addition to combination sensing, the new ZS Sensors offer more flexible setpoint adjust, support for up to 5 sensors of any variety per control program, and up to 15 sensors on a single Rnet. They are all dip switch addressable. More data than ever before is available to be displayed on the sensors. The sensors now support the ability to force the zone into an unoccupied state for energy savings and much more.

All beta sites must be running WebCTRL 5.5.

List of use cases/scenarios that we need to test during the beta period:

      Rnet network with at least 2 Pro or Pro-F sensors
      Rnet network with 5 total sensors
      Rnet network with 10 total sensors
      Sensors on modules running under MS/TP networks
      Pro sensors configured with:

        · Multiple items in Home screen rotation
        · Varying Setpoint Adjust configurations
        · Support for Force Unoccupied
        · More than 5 items on Info and Diagnostics screens
        · Use of Alarm designation
        · Use of Maintenance designation
        · Setpoint adjust inhibit
        · Schedule MB with Allow Continuous Override enabled
        · Schedule MB with Allow TLO Set During Occupied enabled
          · Pro-F Sensor with mode and fan control
          The ZS Zone Sensor beta product is scheduled to be ready for ordering the week of August 20th, and the test period will last approximately 90 days.

Whats VOC?

Whats VOC?

ALC – Hardware

Humans respirate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) as well as CO2. This new

BAPI sensor is able to measure these VOCs, therefore it is as good an indicator of
space occupancy as a CO2 sensor.
The BAPI Sensor is different from other VOC sensors because it has been
optimized for Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV). Using a calibration algorithm,
the sensor value is converted to an output with a high correlation to a CO2 level

This lets you use ASHRAE’s occupancy-based VRP schedule to ventilate.

(More info on this correlated output is available on the BAPI control parts website at http://www.bapihvac.com)
Besides from respiration, the sensor picks up VOCs from other sources such as
building materials, perfumes, colognes and furniture off gassing. Using this sensor
to ventilate is a way of acheiving true indoor air quality and not just CO2 dilution.
The unit is available as a VOC sensor alone or as a combination temperature
and humidity sensor. The optional display alternates between the measured
values and is field adjustable between °F or °C. An optional three color LED
indicates “VOC Level” of Good, Fair or Poor.
Features & Options
* VOC Alone or Temperature and Humidity Combination
* Indicates Space Occupancy by Detecting Human-Generated VOCs
* Output is Correlated to a CO2 Value Allowing You to Ventilate Using ASHRAE’s Occupancy-Based VRP Algorithm

Does Demand Controlled Ventilation fit into your Strategy!
