Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems were never as important as they are today, due to the great significance of safe indoor air quality (IAQ), not only in homes but in large buildings like factories and hospitals, too.
An HVAC system is a complicated one, with several components, one being sensors. HVAC sensors can be used for a number of operations in order to improve system performance: air conditioner sensors, furnace sensors as well as several temperature sensor types can all be found in one single system, ultimately ensuring health and safety.
In detail, the types of sensors used in HVAC may include temperature, humidity, occupancy as well as pressure sensors, the latter being the most prevalent.
HVAC pressure sensors
HVAC pressure transducers monitor pressure levels and measure the pressure drop across devices, alerting the system when maintenance and filter replacement is required.
ES Systems, following the increased requirements in the field, has developed a series of board mountable pressure transducers for markets that require high resolution and accuracy for gas pressure measurements.
More specifically, the ESCP-BMS1 is an absolute, gauge or differential pressure sensor of ultra-high resolution with analog (0-3,3V), SPI or I2C interface.
It can be used when optimal HVAC performance is required, as its total error including repeatability, hysteresis, non-linearity, thermal offset and linearity error being better than 0.25% FS.
ESCP-BMS1 is designed but not limited for usage on the following HVAC applications: Airflow Monitoring, Clogged Filter Detection, Duct Air Flow, Environmental Control Systems, Filter Monitoring, Blocked Filter Detection and Indoor Air Quality.
