    Belimo Energy Valve™ Now Solves Low Delta T Leveraging IoTbelimo_energy_valve.jpg

    The new Energy Valve is now an IoT device utilizing advanced cloud-based analytics to leverage captured system data to the full potential providing savings and the most efficient operation. The Energy Valve is a pressure independent valve, which measures and manages coil energy by using an embedded electronic flow meter, along with supply and return water temperature sensors. One valve with so many benefits:

    • Patented Power Control and Delta T Manager logic built-in monitor coil performance and optimize the available energy of the coil by maintaining the Delta T
    • Glycol monitoring an exclusive feature ensuring glycol content meets design needs to provide optimum efficiency and safe operation.
    • Cloud analytics provide recommended Delta T and flow set points which can be updated remotely. Accessing and analyzing data reduces field labor and delivers better system efficiency.
    • Dynamic coil performance illustrates the operation of the coil in real time accurately providing transparency of power degradation and other operational issues.
    • Most expansive communication platform on the market including Cloud, BACnet MSTP and BACnet IP, Modbus, RTU and TCP/, Belimo MP-Bus, and one analog feedback signal for valve flow, power, temperature or position providing expanded system integration and BMS control.

    The Energy Valve is ideal for water-side control of heating and cooling systems for AHUs and any water coil (equal percentage: heating/cooling application) with programmable maximum flow settings from 1.65 - 713 GPM in valve body size ½” to 6”.

    NEW ANSI 250 Energy Valve and Electronic Pressure Independent Valve - An Advanced Performance Solution for High Pressure Applications

    Posted on Tue,Feb 16, 2016 @ 09:05 AM

    Belimo Americas announces the release of the new ANSI 250 pressure rating for 2 ½” to 6” flanged Energy Valve and ePIV assemblies. These assemblies utilize an electromagnetic flow meter in line with a control ANSI_250_straight_EV.jpgvalve to obtain close-off ratings from 135 – 310 psi depending on valve size and actuator force. Actuators respond to a modulating control signal and are available with non-spring return or electronic fail-safe functionality.

    The Energy Valve and Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (EPIV) both provide true flow with the built-in electronic flow meter and dynamic balancing providing pressure independent operation by maintaining constant flow regardless of differential pressure fluctuations.

    The Energy Valve also provides a solution to low Delta T syndrome with its Delta T Manager™.  Power Control is another feature of the Energy Valve, which allows setting the power output to a specific value in a linear response making coil control both pressure and temperature independent. Additionally, the Energy Valve is equipped with an Energy Meter and data logger that stores 13 months of data providing system transparency along with the ability to optimize performance over BACnet or standard analog control.

    New Flow Offering on 2” Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (ePIV)

    Posted on Tue,Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

    Belimo expanded its 2” ePIV offering to include five new factory set flow models from 80 to 100 GPM. To achieve these new flow settings the specification for operating differential pressure range is 8-50 psid and media temperature range is 39°F to 250°FePIV [4°C to 120°C].  For these models field set maximum flow is adjustable from 30-100 GPM, in 1 GPM increments, with the ZTH US hand held tool or PC Tool.  

    The ePIV is a 2-way pressure independent characterized control valve with an integrated electronic flow meter and a powerful control algorithm. The ePIV maintains flow set point regardless of differential pressure variations. It achieves this with its powerful algorithm that modulates the valve based on its measured True Flow. The ePIV:

    Compensates for pressure variations and perform dynamic balancing to maintain system performance at varying loads.

    Valves are selected based on coil flow rate. No Cv calculations are needed.

    Valve maintains pressure independent operation down to 1 psid.

    Unlike mechanical pressure independent valves that provide an approximated/calculated flow feedback, the built-in electronic flow meter provides True Flow as a feedback to BAS systems.

    Built-in CCV technology with high close-off pressure and zero leakage eliminates “ghost energy” losses in the system.

    ZTH US handheld tool provides fast and easy access to settings and values.
