Armstrong releases HVAC control system with advanced sensorless design
Armstrong Fluid Technology has introduced the IPS 4000 integrated pumping system, an advanced multi-zone control.
The new system directly integrates with pumping units to optimise energy performance, system handling, and installation.
Designed with the ‘sensor within’, the IPS 4000 series offers a comprehensive control solution that does not rely on remote sensors to optimise the control of any variable flow HVAC system.
Featuring patented efficiency staging in a headed configuration, the IPS 4000 operates in either a stand-alone mode or networked through the BMS to maximise the performance profile of up to six pumps in 12 zones.
‘Choosing a system that does not rely on remote sensors can provide measurable cost savings by avoiding the expense of purchasing and installing unnecessary equipment.’ says Lex van der Weerd, CEO of Armstrong.
The IPS 4000 provides performance efficiency exceeding ASHRAE 90.1 2010, achieving IE3, and the system is MEI 2015 compliant.
The system also features control of the by-pass valve in the de-coupler line, ensuring minimum flow rate requirements, and it automates variable primary pump stations in response to changing number of chillers/boilers.
It is further able to read the flow from pumps, a flow meter, or both.
