Fast installation, considerable cost savings and BACnet integration for direct connection to BMS.
Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents its new family of fire damper modules.
These modules have been developed to control the different types of fire dampers available on the market.
The SBB4I is a 4-input module to be connected to two fire dampers with thermal fuses to detect their blades position. The second is the SBB4I2Oxxx, a 4-input/2-output module to also be connected to two fire dampers to detect their blades position and, in addition, to control them when they are equipped with a return-spring or motors.
“Fire dampers are mandatory and are used to prevent smoke from spreading through the buildings ventilation system in the case of fire. With this launch we are able to provide customers with a dedicated solution offering a bus-based system which reduces the cabling cost to 15%,” Raffaella Sirena International Product Manager says. “Usually in a building system dozens of modules are installed. Via our specific configuration software, it is possible to speed up the programming of the fire damper modules, resulting in an efficient and time saving procedure”.
Developed in our competence centre in Italy, the fire damper modules have been designed to monitor and control fire dampers in the building automation market, where high efficiency and easy installation in HVAC application is crucial.
