Common Controls Power and Output Configurations in Building Automation Systems
When first introduced, industrial automated systems required special configurations for power and output. That meant that a specialist had to come up with innovative solutions. Today, things have changed dramatically. The systems available today, including wind monitoring instruments, a wind speed and direction sensor, rainfall gauge, and more use standard configurations for both power and output.
Because superior automated systems rely on standard power and output configurations, you can choose whatever solution you want and have it operational in no time. When discussing your needs with an expert, these settings are important since they will help determine which systems will work best for your needs.
- A75-104 Sine Wave Anemometer – Efficient for outside temperatures between -67 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity levels from 0 to 100 percent, and gust survival wind speeds of 214 miles per hour, this anemometer is exceptional. The electrical output signal increases linearly with wind speed.
- A75 101 Reed Switch Anemometer – This anemometer has an environmental operating temperature between -40 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, a humidity range of 0 to 100 percent, and a gust survival speed of 214 miles per hour. The maximum voltage is 10VDC with a top current of 10 mA. As for the output signal, this is a contact transfer rate that increases linearly with wind speed.
- A75 302 Wind Vane – You might also consider this wind vane, which has an analog DC voltage signal that is regulated by a 10K potentiometer. The power requirements are regulated potentiometer excitation of 1 to 15VDC.
The best industrial automated systems rely on common power configurations of 12 to 24 VDC, as well as VAC. As for standard output settings, the most common include 4 to 20 mA, 0 to 1 volt, 0 to 5 volt, and 0 to 10 volt.
Instead of using outdated wind sensors, rain gauges, excess rainfall pumps, lighting systems, and temperature control systems, you can choose systems that use standard power and output configurations. Beyond that, these systems will save you money, improve business operations, protect employees and tangible goods, and much more.
