The volume flow is controlled by a volume flow controller
which uses pneumatic or electrical energy. These con-
trollers and the associated measurement and activating
elements are integral parts of the volume flow control ter-
minal unit. The overall design of the air conditioning
system results in the VAV terminal unit being the connect-
ing element between the system and the room, with the
following functions:
to adjust the volume flow within specified tolerances
TVJ/TVT irrespective of duct pressure
as an auxiliary parameter for the room temperature
controller, to maintain a constant room temperature.

To achieve the correct control strategy, various tasks


must be noted when planning volume flow control
systems. The system designer, contractor, manufacturer
of the control system and Trox must collaborate and the
exchange of information is essential.

VAV System with Electronic or Trox Scope of Supply


Pneumatic Volume Flow Control The guarantee limits for VAV terminal units are set by the
control function. The diagrams show the usual control
systems used today. When a volume flow controller is
used, this limit is defined by input and output signals.
With combined room temperature and volume flow con-
trollers, this limit passes through the controller. In these
cases, the manufacturer of the VAV terminal unit guaran-
tees to maintain the volume flow, and the supplier of the
temperature controller guarantees the control of room

effect is increased by increasing the volume flow (with

Volume Flow Control Circuit Volume Flow Cascade Control Circuit


The volume flow control has a closed control circuit:
3 2 measurement comparison adjustment.
As volume measurement accuracy is essential for quality,
an optimised differential pressure sensor was developed
for the Trox VARYCONTROL VAV terminal units. Differen-
tial pressures are measured at the inlet to the multi point
flow grid. The particular arrangement of the measure-
ment points gives an amplifica-tion of the dynamic pres-
sure as a mean value. The differential pressure thus meas-
ured is a function of the volume flow and is converted
into an electrical or pneumatic signal by a transducer.
The volume flow controller determines the volume flow
from the transducer signal.
5 M pw 4 Depending on the control deviation between actual and
set values, the control damper blade is adjusted by the
actuator until the actual value and set point are equal
(P or Pl control depending on controller type). The volume
flow controller maintains a constant volume flow over the
specified pressure range within controller-dependent
1 6 tolerances. Duct pressure fluctuations cannot therefore
have a disruptive effect on the room temperature control.

Seal the duct connections well with conventional
sealing materials.
Because of the plastic components in the immediate
vicinity of the connector, heat shrink tape should be
used with care.

TVRK Volume Flow Controller and Transducer


The TVRK plastic controllers have been developed for
the use in air-conditioning systems, where the air con-
tains agressive media. For this reason only membrane
pressure transducers are used.
Membrane pressure transducers are depending on posi-
tion (installation position to be indicated when ordering).
The intended installation position will be considered at
adjustment in the factory and is marked with an arrow.
Should another installation position be requested at site,
the zero point adjustment of the membrane pressure
transducer as per individual product information has
again to be carried out be the customer.

The differential (effective) pressure can be measured
direct at the differential pressure sensor in order to check

Safety Note
Maintenance should only be carried out by specialists!
The control damper mechanism on the VAV terminal unit
is maintenance-free. To ensure perfect functioning of
the entire system, function tests should be carried out as
part of the regular system maintenance.
The following criteria should be used:
1. Does the room temperature controller function?
2. Does the volume flow controller function?
3. Does the actuator turn in both directions?
4. Does the transducer output signal vary according to
the actuator movements?
5. Do the override controls such as shut off function?
1 6. Are the tubing connections airtight?
Further details on fault diagnosis are given in the infor-
mation on each controller type.

Replacement of Control Components


If faulty control components have to be replaced, the
following principles must be observed:
1 Special tool for removing tubing Spare parts must comply with the technical require-
ments of the manufacturer.
Only use original spare parts.
Blade Position Indicator Disconnect supply voltage 24 volts or operating pres-
sure.
Mark wiring/tubing connections before releasing.
Carefully remove pneumatic tubing without pulling.
Replace component and all connections.

When replacing controllers and transducers, they must


be adjusted to suit the unit size. Therefore electronic
and pneumatic components are preset in the Trox works.
Digital controllers can be set up by the customer.
When changing actuators, note the following:
5 4 3 2 1 Mechanical rotation angle limiters on the new actuator
should be set as the existing unit. A slot in the control
damper shaft shows the position of the blade.

Belimo VRD2

VRD2 Area of Application


The VRD2 electronic volume flow controller from Belimo
is designed for use in VAV systems. A dynamic differen-
tial pressure transducer and electronic controller are
combined in one housing.
The principle requirements for variable volume flow con-
trol are a suitable room temperature controller or a DDC
outstation or similar. The output signal from this control-
ler serves as a command variable for the VRD2.
Switches or relays are used for override control. The
actual value of the volume flow is monitored as a stand-
ard linear, electrical signal. This signal can be used for
example to control a slave unit in the extract air duct. The
voltage range for the actual and control value is standard-
ised between 2 and 10 VDC. Using the adjuster ZEV, the
customer can change from 0 to 10 VDC.
The VRD2 has adjustment knobs for setting Vmin and
Vmax. All the controller parameters are set by Trox and the
VRD2 unit is supplied with the knobs sealed. No adjustment is
Tube connection for transducer necessary by the customer. As soon as the supply volt-
Vmin-adjustment knob (0 to 80 % of Vmax) age and the room temperature controller have been con-
nected, the volume flow control unit is ready for use. Any

volume flow changes which may be necessary to the
Reference value potentiometer VRD2 can easily be carried out by the customer.
Connection terminals For parallel operation, several VRD2 controllers can be
Actuator connection cable connected up to one room temperature controller. Supply

The VRD2 is capable of communication through the PP
connection (terminal 5). With the aid of the Belimo ad-
juster ZEV, the parameter settings can be read and the

Volume Flow Adjustment


The set volume flow limit values can be adjusted on site
using the Vmin and Vmax adjustment knobs on the VRD2.
Calculations are based on the formulae shown on page 4.

Adjustment Procedure
First set Vmax and then Vmin.
If the ratio of Vmax to Vmin is to remain constant (e.g.
Vmin = 50 % of Vmax), only the Vmax adjustment knob
Vmin adjustment knob must be moved.
Vmax adjustment knob Moving the Vmin adjustment knob will have no effect on
the Vmax value.

If Vmax is to be altered and Vmin to remain unchanged,
Vmax, must be reset first, followed by Vmin.

Important:
Calculating the Volume Flow
The reference value potentiometer Using the Actual Value Signal U5
must not be adjusted.
The accuracy of the setting can be increased if the
actual value signal U5 is also measured with the system
switched on (note the voltage range 0/10 V or 2/10 V).
As a rule, the controller must have been connected to the

VRP  Area of Application


The Belimo VRP electronic volume flow controller, com-
  bined with a membrane differential pressure transducer
VFP 300, is designed for use in VAV systems and re-
  quires a room temperature controller.
Control signals can be in the range of 2 to 10 VDC (0 to
20 V phasecut also possible). Override control can be
achieved by external switches. Several controllers may
be connected to one room temperature controller. Supply
air/extract air slave circuits are also possible.

 Static Measuring Principle
The volume flow is measured using a membrane pres-
sure transducer. Therefore the VRP is suitable for the

VRP-STP Area of Application


The Belimo VRP-STP differential pressure controller
combined with a membrane differential pressure trans-
ducer VFP 100, is designed for room pressure control
of sealed rooms; when combined with a VFP 300 or
VFP 600, it is designed for control of duct pressure. No
control signal is required if constant differential pressure
is to be maintained. The constant differential pressure
can be set manually in the range from 30 to 100 % on the
adjustment knob. Alternatively, the set value can be pre-
set externally by a control signal between 2 to 10 VDC.
Override controls can be achieved by external switches.
For parallel operation, several controllers can be con-
nected to a common control signal. Supply air/extract
duct pressure control sequence available.

VAV-Compact, NMV-D2 Area of Application


The VAV Compact NMV-D2 from Belimo is a complete
control unit designed for VAV volume flow control units.
The dynamic differential pressure transducer, damper
actuator and electronic controls are combined in one
housing. There are two operating modes available for the
control function. For variable volume flow control, a suit-
able room temperature controller (alternatively, an air
quality controller or similar) or a DDC outstation must be
used. The control signal provides the volume set point.
Switches or relays are used for constant volume flow
control with up to 3 set values.
The actual value of the volume flow is output as a stand-
ard linear, electrical signal. The voltage range for the
actual and set values is standardised at 0 to 10 VDC.
Using the ZEV setting unit, the customer can change to
2 to 10 VDC.
NMV-D2
The volume flow is microprocessor-controlled on a digi-
Tube connection for transducer tal basis. The VAV Compact has no potentiometer or
Gear release button switches, because all the parameters, including Vmin and
Connection cable Vmax, are stored in memory. Trox supplies the controller
with all the parameters set. The volume flow can be
changed by the customer easily and reliably using an
adjuster (Belimo ZEV) and certain parameters can be
read.
Several controllers can be connected to a common room
temperature controller for parallel operation. Supply/
extract air slave circuits can be provided.
Standard filtration in air-conditioning systems allows the
use of the NMV-D2 in the supply air without dust protec-
tion filters. Since a small volume flow is passed through
the transmitter in order to monitor the volume flow, the
following must be noted:
With heavy dust in the room, suitable extract air
filters must be provided.
If the air is contaminated with fluff or sticky par-
ticles or contains aggressive media, the NMV-D2
should not be used.

by the customer using an adjuster (Belimo ZEV).

The VAV Compact controls the set volume flow, between

Constant Volume Flow Operating Mode


By wiring the control signal input terminal via switch con-
. tacts, constant volume flows Vmin and Vmax, and override
Vmin unit control can be achieved.

Control signal U3 Control Signal Range Limiting


For settings between Vmin = 0 % and Vmax = 100 %, the
control signal must be limited in the DDC outstation. In
A 0 to 10 VDC (standard) B 2 to 10 VDC this case, the full published volume range can be used
for future adjustment via the BMS. If the design volume

10 8 0-10 VDC or 2-10 VDC can be used. However, these set-
tings can only be changed by using the Belimo ZEV
which involve gaining access to the terminal box.

Pressure Independent Control Characteristic Volume Flow Control Tolerances


The volume flow controller works independently of the
duct pressure, which means that pressure fluctuations do
not cause permanent volume flow changes. To prevent
Pressure differential

the volume flow control from becoming unstable, a dead


zone is provided within which the damper is not moved.
This dead zone, coupled with the measuring tolerances,
produces a volume flow deviation AV shown opposite.
If the conditions shown in the sales brochure (e.g. mini-
mum pressure differential, inlet flow conditions, etc.) are
not observed, greater deviations must be expected.

If Vmin is set at 0 %, the damper will be moved to the
CLOSED position with a control signal of 0 VDC (alter-
natively 2 VDC) (leakage depends on the type of unit).

ZEV Adjuster Volume Flow Adjustment on Site


The volume flow set values and the voltage ranges can
be adjusted on site with the aid of the adjuster ZEV. To
achieve this, the ZEV is connected to the controller or
remote position via a cable.
The calculated Vmin and Vmax values are set on the corre-
sponding potentiometers. These settings are input to the
controller when the set buttons are pressed.

24 VAC RT-Controller incorrect difference in volume between the supply and
(24 VDC) extract air flows, if the pressure in one duct region is too
low. It is therefore more beneficial to use the actual
volume flow value, usually that of the supply air flow, as
the control signal for the slave volume flow controller. If
the extract air flow is not to be controlled by the DDC
controller, a slave control is also used.

VAV-Compact, NMV-D2M The actual value of the volume flow is output as a stand-
ard linear, electrical signal. The voltage range for the
6 actual and set values is standardised at 0 to 10 VDC.
Using the ZEV setting unit, the customer can change to
7 2 to 10 VDC.

tal basis. The VAV Compact has no potentiometer or
switches, because all the parameters, including Vmin and

with all the parameters set. The volume flow can be

by the customer using an adjuster (Belimo ZEV).

The VAV Compact controls the set volume flow, between

By wiring the control signal input terminal via switch con-

Vmin unit control can be achieved.

Control signal U3 Control Signal Range Limiting


For settings between Vmin = 0 % and Vmax = 100 %, the
control signal must be limited in the DDC outstation. In

tings can only be changed by using the Belimo ZEV or
MFT-H which involve gaining access to the terminal box.

Pressure Independent Control Characteristic Volume Flow Control Tolerances


The volume flow controller works independently of the
duct pressure, which means that pressure fluctuations do
not cause permanent volume flow changes. To prevent
Pressure differential

the volume flow control from becoming unstable, a dead


zone is provided within which the damper is not moved.
This dead zone, coupled with the measuring tolerances,
produces a volume flow deviation AV shown opposite.
If the conditions shown in the sales brochure (e.g. mini-
mum pressure differential, inlet flow conditions, etc.) are
not observed, greater deviations must be expected.

ZEV Adjuster Volume Flow Adjustment on Site


The volume flow set values and the voltage ranges can
be adjusted on site with the aid of the adjuster ZEV. To
achieve this, the ZEV is connected to the controller or
remote position via a cable.
The calculated Vmin and Vmax values are set on the corre-
sponding potentiometers. These settings are input to the
controller when the set buttons are pressed.

Slave Control Supply / Extract Air Slave Control


If the units are controlled in parallel, there may be an
24 VAC RT-Controller incorrect difference in volume between the supply and
(24 VDC) extract air flows, if the pressure in one duct region is too
low. It is therefore more beneficial to use the actual
volume flow value, usually that of the supply air flow, as
the control signal for the slave volume flow controller. If
the extract air flow is not to be controlled by the DDC
controller, a slave control is also used.
A ratio control can be achieved using the VAV Compact,
i.e. extract and supply air flows are in the same ratio to
one another under all operating conditions.

PRVU Areas of Application


2 4 The room temperature and volume flow controller Staefa
6 PRVU is designed for use in volume flow controllers in
VAV systems. The main control parameter, room tempe-
rature, is kept constant with the supply air volume flow
as auxiliary parameter.
The control circuits are digital with a microprocessor. The
1 controllers can function independently. The Pronto bus
can network the controller to a communication module or
an adapter and so provide a link to a higher level system.
3 The room temperature is measured by a room control
unit which also allows the room occupant to make any
necessary changes. The controller can function in
various operating modes (comfort, standby), which can
be set locally or via the Pronto bus. There is also a heat-
ing sequence.
4 5 All control parameters including min and max are stored
in non-volatile memory. The controllers are supplied by
 PRVU controller Trox with all parameters set. The service unit enables
customers to change the volume flow easily and reliably.

the volume flow actual value, mostly that of the supply

Compact Controller GLB181.1E/3 Applications


The Siemens electronic volume flow controller
GLB181.1E/3 is a control unit for VAV volume control
2 units in VVS systems. The membrane pressure trans-
ducer and control electronics are integrated into one
housing. For variable volume flow control, a suitable
1 room termperature controller (or air quality controller),
a DDC outstation or a similar device must be used.
A 0 to 10 VDC signal or three-point signal (TEC controller,
3 DESIGO RXC31.1 etc.) can be used as the voltage range.
To do this, volume flow control is deactivated. Switches
or relays with a maximum of 2 set points are used for
constant volume flow control.
The GLB181.1E/3 . is not .outfitted with adjustment knobs
7 4
for performing Vmin and Vmax settings. All controller para-
meters are factory-set by Trox. The customer does not
need to make any adjustments. As soon as the supply
voltage and room temperature controller have been con-
nected, the terminal unit is ready for use.
6
Any volume flow changes that may be necessary can
easily be carrried out by the customer with the AST10
adjustment device. For parallel operation, several con-
5 trollers can be connected up to one room temperature
controller. Supply/extract air slave control can be
realized.

low that as a rule the measuring element is not soiled.
However, if the unit is used in unclean air, a plastic or
coated VAV should be used.

IMPORTANT
Make certain that in critical situations the VAV
terminal unit and membrane pressure transducer
are tested for the resistance of their materials to
hazardous materials and particle concentrations in
ambient air.
Operating Modes
The GLB181.1E/3 has two operating modes, CON and
3P (see circuit diagram below).

Command Signal Range Limiting
In the DDC outstation, the. command signal . must be lim-
ited for settings between Vmin = 0 % and Vmax = 100 %. In
this situation, the full published volume range can be
used for parameterizing. If the desired volume flow rates
are set in the unit, a standard voltage signal range of
0-10 VDC can be used to control all units. However,
these settings can only be changed individually by using
the AST10, which involves gaining access to the terminal
unit.

(Operating Mode 3P)


In this operating mode, the internal controller electronics
are inactivated. Only. the reference
. value is factory set.
Any parameterized Vmin or Vmax values have no impact on
function.

controller location. This avoids having to remove ceiling panels
when service is performed. Suitable locations include:
Switch cabinet spare terminals in room temperature controllers, or wall
or wall mounted

It is important to ensure that G and G0 are available.
Therefore, a 4-wire connection is required to the com-

Siemens Volume Flow Controller
VAV Modular ASV181.1E/3

Compact Controller ASV181.1E/3 Application


The Siemens electronic volume flow controller
 ASV181.1E/3 is a control unit for VAV terminal units. The
membrane pressure transducer and control electronics
are integrated into one housing. A separate actuator is
connected for damper adjustment. These controllers are
mainly used in VAV terminal units with specialized func-
tions such as spring return, torque > 10 Nm or adjustable
switch functions on the actuator.
For variable volume flow control, a suitable room tem-
perature controller (or air quality controller), a DDC out-
station or a similar device must be used. A 0 to 10 VDC
signal or three-point signal (TEC controller, DESIGO
RXC31.1 etc.) can be used as the voltage range. To do
 this, the volume flow controller ASV181.1E/3 is deacti-
vated. Switches or relays with a maximum of 2 set points
are used for constant volume flow control.
The ASV181.1E/3 is not outfitted with adjustment knobs
 Vmin and Vmax. All controller parameters factory-set by
Trox. The customer does not need to make any adjust-
ments. As soon as the supply voltage and room tempera-
ture controller have been connected, the terminal unit is
  ready for use.
Any volume flow changes to the AST10 that may be
necessary can easily be carried out by the customer. For
parallel operation, several controllers can be connected

Static Measuring
 Connecting cable for actuator
The actual value of the volume flow is monitored as a
 Mounting lug
standard, linear electrical signal and can be switched to a
DDC or used for the display. The voltage range for the
actual and command value is standardized at 0 to 10 VDC.
Volume flow is measured with a membrane pressure
transducer. In automatic, recovered zero point calibration
via an integrated air valve, minimum flow briefly occurs in
the measuring line. This flow level is so low that as a rule
the measuring element is not soiled. However, if the unit
is used in unclean air, a VAV a plastic or coated terminal
unit should be used.

Operating Modes IMPORTANT


The ASV181.1E/3 has two operating modes, CON and Make certain that in critical situations the VAV termi-

for the resistance of their materials to hazardous
materials and particle concentrations in ambient air.

processor in the controller.


The actual volume flow is available as a linear voltage
signal U. The measurement range (reference value) is set
during factory calibration to suit the unit size in such a
way that 10 VDC always corresponds to the unit nominal
volume flow rate (Vnom).
Vmin unit The required volume flow is set by the room temperature
controller or by switches. The controller determines the
0 Actual value signal UC 10 VDC required volume flow in accordance with the characteri-
stic curve shown in the illustration and compares this
with the actual value. The external damper actuator is
controlled according to the volume flow tolerances. The
factory-set volume flow ranges Vmin and Vmax can be
altered by the customer using a Siemens AST10 adjuster,

0 Actual command signal Y 10 VDC CLOSED or OPEN can be realized.
Constant volume flow
To realize override control as well as constant volume
flows Vmin and Vmax, wire the input terminals for the com-
mand signal via relays or contacts.
Command signal range limiting
In the DDC outstation, the command variable must be
limited for settings between Vmin = 0 % and Vmax =
100 %. In this situation, the full published volume range
can be used for future adjustment via the BMS. If the
design volume flow rates are set in the unit, a full voltage
signal range of 0-10 or 2-10 VDC can be used. However,
these settings can only be changed by using the AST10,
which involves gaining access to the terminal unit.

(Operating Mode 3P)


In this operating mode, the internal controller electronics
are inactivated. Only the reference value is factory set.
Any calibrated Vmin and Vmax values have no impact on
function.

Wiring
Wiring for the 24 VAC voltage supply must be performed
by the customer. Safety transformers are to be used
(EN 60742).
If several controllers are connected to one 24 VAC grid,
it is important to ensure that a common neutral or ground
wire is used.

Continuous Controlling between Vmin and Vmax Variable Volume Flow Controlling
Operating Mode CON The ASV181.1E/3 is connected to the 24 VAC grid. If the
DDC outstation/controller is in the same grid, the com-
24 V mand signal can be applied via a single wire. If the grids
are separate, the command signal is connected by two
wires. The actual value signal for the volume flow can be
used.

Two Duct Combined Unit TVM Volume Flow Controller of TVM Units
The two controllers fitted to the dual duct unit TVM (cold
24 V Room temper-
ature controller duct, warm duct) are to be wired by the customer as
illustrated in the circuit diagram on this page (including
G G0 Y
the 24 VAC cross-connection).
The room temperature controller provides the cold duct
controller with its set point signal.
In most instances, the proportion of warm air is increased
from 0 to the required Vwarm as a maximum set point.
The warm duct controller (Vtotal is measured) is therefore
set as a constant value controller and does not require a
control signal.

Compact Controller W7751H2009 Application


The Honeywell electronic volume flow controller
W7751H2009 is a complete control unit for volume flow
1 3 control in VAV systems. The dynamic differential pressure
transducers, actuators and electronic controls are inte-
2 grated into one housing. A LON bus interface makes the
unit suitable for systems using LON bus technology. For
technical data regarding LON interfaces, consult the
applicable Honeywell product documentation.
The.W7751H2009. is not outfitted with adjustment knobs
5 for Vmin and Vmax settings. The controllers are factory-
calibrated by Trox to the required volume flow using an
OEM tool. All remaining function parameters are set on
site by Honeywell technicians.
4 An operator terminal (T7560/T7460; on customers prem-
ises; see Honeywell product documentation) is used to
control room temperature and volume flow.
Standard filtration in air conditioning systems allows use
of the W7751H2009 without dust protection filters.

Commissioning
The controllers are integrated into the LON network via
the system integrator (binding). These services are to be
provided by the system builder or the controller vendor,
and are to be integrated into the planning and bid sub-
mission phases.
Any additional changes in volume flow can be carried
out on site via the LON bus. Supply or extract air slave
control can also be realized (contact Honeywell).

Honeywell Volume Flow Controller W7751F2003

Volume Flow Controller W7751F2003 Application


The Honeywell electronic volume flow controller
2 W7751F2003 is a digital volume flow controller for VAV
terminal units in VVS systems. A dynamic differential
pressure transducer and controller electronics are inte-
grated into one housing. A suitable actuator is integrated
as well.
The units LON bus interface enables use in systems with
LON bus technology. For technical data regarding the
3 LON interface, consult the applicable Honeywell product
documentation.
The.W7751F2003. is not outfitted with adjustment knobs
for Vmin and Vmax settings. The controllers are factory-
calibrated (by Trox) to the specified volume flow using
1 an OEM tool. All remaining parameters for the required
functions are set on site by Honeywell technicians.
An operator terminal (T7560/T7460; customers premi-
ses; see Honeywell product documentation) is used to
control room temperature and/ volume flow.
Standard filtration in air conditioning systems allows use
of the W7751F2003 without dust protection filters.

Commissioning
The controllers are integrated into the LON network via
the system integrator (binding). These services are to be
provided by the system builder or the controller vendor,
and are to be integrated into the planning and bid sub-
mission phases.
Any further changes in volume flow are to be carried out
on site via the LON bus. Supply or extract air slave
control and other control functions can also be realized
(by arrangment with Honeywell). Controller functions can
also be realized (contact Honeywell).

RLE 150 (Master) Area of Application


The electronic Sauter RLE 150 volume flow controller has
been designed for volume flow control in VAV systems. In
2 3 total the control for 1 room comprises 3 controllers.

4 5 Master Controller
. .
For the variable volume flow control with Vmin and Vmax
serves the master controller in connection with a suitable
room temperature controller or a DDC substation.
For this purpose the output signal of the controller is
1 switched onto the RLE 150 as command variable. The
volume flow control can be overrided
. with switches
(override control closed and Vmax).

RLE 150 (Slave) Slave Controller


The slave controller controls a volume flow as slave
control loop of another volume flow (master). The most
6 frequent application is the supply air/extract air slave
control. A desired volume flow differential between sup-
ply air and extract air is adjusted at the slave controller.

As second command variable the output signal of a room
pressure controller can be switched on. Also here, over-
ride controls are possible.

With parallel control of the units, an undesirable differ-
24 VAC RT Controller ence between supply and extract air can occur if the
pressure in one duct is to low. It is therefore preferable to
use the volume flow actual value, usually of the supply
air, as the command signal for the slave volume flow
controller (master terminal L1 on slave terminal 10).

Supply / Extract Air Slave Control (Using Uw2)


Alternatively to supply/extract air slave control the limited
set value signal Uw2 (master controller terminal 14 on
slave controller terminal 10) can command the slave con-
troller. The slave controller then controls to the set value
of the master controller independent of whether this
value is actually reached at the master controller.

Sauter RLE, Room Pressure Control

RLE 150 F100, Room Pressure Controller Area of Application


The pneumatic Sauter RLE 150 room pressure controller
3 4 has been designed for the high or low pressure control of
dense rooms. The room pressure is controlled using the
2 master-and-slave system (cascade-controlled) by a
Sauter RLE 150 F012/F013 flow volume controller, which
controls the flow volume control unit in supply air or
5 extract air. In total the control for 1 room comprises
3 controllers.

Room Pressure Controller


1 The control of extremely dense rooms is not satisfactorily
solved with the supply/extract air slave control, as meas-
uring and control tolerances as well as the unknown
density degree of the room may lead to undesirably high
RLE 150 (Auxiliary Controller) room pressures or to room pressures with wrong signs.
With the room pressure controller the differential pressure
as to a reference room is measured and controlled. The

range in addition to the master controller influenced by
