building use and adjust the ventilation or other HVAC components to accommodate these low and high-traffic time periods. This efficiency model saves costs over time for both heating/cooling fuel and power usage, but also for labor costs. Facilities labor costs are lessened by having these systems automated rather than hiring workers to plan efficiency schedules and then work shifts to walk large facilities in order to adjust and test output.
Flow meters used to measure the flow of air in the duct systems must be highly accurate and sensors must be sensitive to small changes in flow in order to check for leaks in the system. Alarms can be set in order to alert the system if air flow drifts outside of the appropriate flow range.
Flow meters must also be equipped with the right communication protocol in order to communicate with the BAS quickly and efficiently. Fox Thermal mass flow meter sensors are very sensitive to changes in gas flow in both very low and high velocities. Fox Thermal model flow meters are also, rugged, durable, and full-featured to fit ideally among BAS-controlled equipment and instrumentation.
