Energie besparen met destratificatie
Energie besparen met destratificatie Ook al zijn de energieprijzen niet meer zo extreem hoog als de voorbije winter, er zijn nog steeds redenen genoeg om bewuster en efficiënter met onze energie om te gaan. De meest voor de hand liggende maatregel is het verlagen van de kamertemperatuur in onze gebouwen. Immers, als de thermostaat een paar graden lager wordt gezet, wordt er al een aanzienlijke besparing gerealiseerd. In ruimtes met hoge plafonds kan echter extra bespaard worden door gebruik te maken van destratificatie. >>>

Soms heeft uw (HVAC)-toepassing interactie met externe apparatuur. Sentera biedt een volledig gamma converters of I/O-modules aan. Ze worden gebruikt in industriële en automatiseringstoepassingen, maar ook domotica of ventilatieoplossingen voor huishoudelijk gebruik maken volop gebruik van I/O-modules. I/O modules zijn de interface tussen een controller en externe apparatuur. Een controller kan een Sentera HVAC controller zijn, die voorzien is van toepassingsspecifieke Solution firmware, maar ook een een PLC (een programmeerbare logische controller).  Zolang ze maar gebruik maken van Modbus RTU communicatie kunnen ze via de Sentera I/O-modules verbinding maken met apparatuur van andere fabrikanten. We spreken over ingangen als we inkomende signalen, afkomstig van externe apparatuur willen kunnen ontcijferen. En over uitgangen als we externe apparaten willen aansturen. >>>
