Innovative natural ventilation control solution launched by SE Controls
Maintaining precise control over indoor air quality, temperature and energy consumption are key considerations for buildings using natural ventilation (NV) systems and SE Controls’ new compact NVLogiQ room controller provides an innovative solution to meet these requirements.
Using new control and performance algorithms developed in conjunction with Loughborough University’s Building Energy Research Group, NVLogiQ not only provides advanced monitoring and control of NV systems in individual rooms or zones, but also combines integrated data logging for detailed building performance and environment analysis.
NVLogiQ constantly monitors carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity, enabling it to automatically manage the operation of windows, louvres and vents within a building’s natural ventilation system, as well as controlling the heating.
Capable of being used as a stand-alone controller or as a networked solution, NVLogiQ is perfectly suited to classrooms, offices and other NV applications that demand a stimulating and comfortable environment. NVLogiQ also has a compact footprint of just 160mm x 105mm, enabling it to be located almost anywhere within a building.
In addition, its integral data logging capability provides a range of opportunities for consultants, contractors and facilities mangers to not only verify a building’s NV design and performance, but to also enable accurate post occupancy evaluation to be easily undertaken.
Nick Hudleston, Natural Ventilation Division Manager for SE Controls commented: “NVLogiQ provides an unrivalled mix of features and precision control. The innovative algorithms, integral data logging and compact design enable it to address a range of NV control and building management requirements in a highly versatile package.”
