Constant pressure solution

Solution based on constant pressure regulation

• Active diffusers with built-in damper plate, which is controlled by a room regulator with 0-10V signal
• Exhaust air flow regulation by measuring airflow in supply duct
• Pressure regulation in supply distribution duct

Constant pressure solution
Exhaust balance with flow measurement – master/slave function

Measuring unit has a minimum flow rate limit
Measuring unit requires straight duct before the unit
Addition of several supply to control one exhaust is difficult
FRU/VRU settings must be done special from factory
Extra components for flow measurement

Constant pressure solution
Active diffusers

Diffusers with high impulse even at low airflows
Diffuser settings must be done individually from factory
Not possible to put on stock
Labelling with ID must be done for each room
Airflow settings are based on theoretical calculated pressure (no airflow regulation)
• Correct pressure = correct airflow
• Higher pressure = higher airflow
• Lower pressure = lower airflow

Constant pressure solution
Pressure regulation

Areas with constant flow balanced with
simple balancing damper
Limited pressure allowance in diffuser
Size of pressure zone not to big
Difficult keeping constant pressure in
all parts of a zone
High demand on duct design
Limited flexibility when reconstructed
Exact placement of pressure sensor
Higher energy consumption due to
higher minimum pressure
Fan optimizer only on zone dampers
Extra components for pressure

Our vision is:

• Install a standard VAV system with room temperature regulation

• Make settings of air flow in room regulator

• Indicate which supply diffusers that affects the exhaust damper

This is done by:

• Installing a motorized plenum box that can handle high pressure with low sound
• Installing a suitable diffuser that can handle 0-100% airflow without the risk of draft
• Making sure the pressure in the system is not exceeding 200 Pa
• Measuring actual air flow regardless of pressure
• Setting all parameters in displays on Regula units
• Total air flow for supply diffusers is being added up and exhaust air flow is regulated
• The fan uses only necessary pressure for each diffuser

Pascal components

• With new sensor technology from Belimo
• Used for regulation of exhaust air
• Controlled by Regula Combi with special exhaust program
• Indicates damper position to Regula Combi
• Can be used for supply as alternative to MBBV boxes, typically used in rooms with
multiple diffusers
• Requires straight duct in front the unit
• Requires silencer after the unit
• In a Pascal system VRU is delivered with 0-100% settings
(never set airflows in VRU, since Regula Combi will adjust the signal according to flow)

Pascal components
Regula Combi

• Special designed VAV program (program 6)
• Special designed exhaust program (program 7)
• Display and pushbuttons
• Exoline communication
• Flexible setup – adjustable parameters
• Regulation of temperature in sequence; heating and cooling
• Output signal for flow 2-10 V – 0 V closes damper
• CO2 overrules temperature regulation resulting in higher airflows
• Air volumes for standby (unoccupied), min. occupied and max occupied can be set
• Transforms damper position to Exoline communication
• Transforms exhaust damper signal from Exoline to 2-10 V (exhaust program)
• All settings can be done with REGIO Tool

Regula Master

• Standard hardware from Regin – known in the market
• Special designed software for Pascal
• One standard unit with three modes
• Single Regula Master (SRM)
• Local Regula Master (LRM)
• Global Regula Master (GRM)
• Three basic functions in the system
• Exhaust control
• Summary of supply air volumes which affect the exhaust damper
• Summary of constant flows which affect the exhaust damper
• Factor for more/less exhaust than supply
• Fan optimizer
• Secures that the most open damper is open to 85%. If the damper is more open, accelerate the fan – if less slow down
• Operating control
• Monitors damper behavior in the system
• Gives alert if a damper does not move over time
• All communication between Regula units with Exoline
• Communication to overall BMS via Exoline or via an OPC solution (BMS contractor)
