    Near Field Communication Coupled with the Belimo Assistant App

    Posted on Tue,Jun 23, 2020 @ 08:30 AM

    What is Near Field Communication, and how does it work? Near Field Communication (NFC) is a wireless communication protocol defined by ISO/IEC 14443. It operates at a frequency of 13.56 MHz between an active reader (e.g., smartphone) and a passive device (e.g., Belimo actuator). For communication to occur between two devices using NFC, the NFC interfaces must be placed close to each other. Belimo NFC works best with direct contact. However, communication works without direct contact at distances of up to 1.18" [3 cm] away from the actuator. For Apple devices, a Bluetooth to NFC dongle is required.

    Belimo products with integrated NFC provides application data access. With a smartphone and the Belimo Assistant App, you can easily program, commission, and troubleshoot your Belimo products with integrated Near Field Communications (NFC). Some of the functionalities you have access to when working with one of our NFC enabled products are; device type, current position, operating data, and setting parameters. NFC provides the data access you need to ensure peace of mind installation and optimal performance.

    Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality

    Posted on Tue,Jun 16, 2020 @ 01:10 PM

    Airside Economizing is a great way to reduce operating costs; it also provides the correct ratio of outside air and return air to deliver the proper indoor air quality (IAQ) to meet the codes and ensure occupant comfort. Studies have shown that up to 70% of economizers are not functioning correctly. Many times economizer systems are set up incorrectly or are left to operate in factory default mode. Many failures go undetected, costing building owners unnecessary expense and energy standards and building IAQ requirements are not met.

    Integration Software for Onsite Optimization

    Posted on Wed,Mar 11, 2020 @ 08:30 AM

    Belimo devices can be found in a wide range of building applications across the globe – silently and reliably helping to improve occupant comfort and reduce energy consumption through HVAC system optimization. In recent years, advancements in IoT and digitalization have allowed these devices to become “smarter” by generating valuable data that can be used by building owners and managers to continuously improve system performance. Several Belimo devices available today have built-in capabilities that enable this data to be pushed to the Belimo Cloud where it can be stored and viewed by technicians and personnel tasked with managing building systems. Some examples of these devices include those with Ethernet interfaces, like the Energy Valve and -IP actuators.  They also include devices with NFC communication capabilities, like the 6-way Electronic Pressure Independent Valve (ePIV), PR actuators, and the new line of airflow control actuators.

    Belimo Designs New Smart Valves for Automated Logic Corporation

    Posted on Mon,Nov 25, 2019 @ 10:37 AM
    Belimo Americas has designed a new smart zone valve in partnership with Automated Logic Corporation  
    (ALC). The intelligent valve, OptiPoint™ is a customized Belimo ZoneTight™ valve with enhanced MP-Bus communication. Automated Logic required their next-generation Bus connected valve assemblies provide superior performance with little effort to commission and operate in the field. Belimo was chosen for their commitment and dedication to innovate. The new smart valve offers seamless connectivity, reliability, and communication to Automated Logic WebCTRL© building automation system providing operators with access to valve performance data from anywhere at any time. The field-adjustable flow capacity setting helps technicians ensure the design requirements are met.

    “Our entire range of solutions are constantly evolving and becoming smarter and more data rich, stated Daniel Caldwell, Belimo Key Account Manager. Communicating and presenting these valuable digital assets is in high demand. By partnering with ALC, we worked together to create a technological bridge to their WebCTRL building automation system.”

    The OptiPoint valves – Belimo customized ZoneTight valves are available for both pressure dependent and pressure independent applications featuring a compact design for easy installation in tight spaces. The valve actuator provides fail open, fail close, or fail in position to meet design requirements. Up to two valves can be connected, minimizing wiring and eliminating the need to use the controller's physical I/O to manage the valve. The actuators snap directly to the valve body allowing quick installation without the use of tools further reducing labor costs.
