control terminology

Get Ready for Anything Under the Sun and Rain

We cannot live without any control supply, whether we like it or not. Our everyday living consists of HVAC controls and the supplies we need. Whether it be at home, the office, or any other building. We always have that control system backing us up.

Down below are a few of the supplies that have been known to be useful in everyday living.

The Control Valves

To be able to control the flow of the fluid, this kind of valve is needed. The size of the opening depends on the flow’s passage. A signal that comes from the controlled dictates its actions. It gives way to the direct control of the flow’s rate and the resulting processes’ control quantities such as liquid, pressures,  and temperature.

In automatic control terminology, it can also be called the “final control” element.

The Valve Actuator

To open and close the valve, this valve actuator must be used. When valves are operated manually, they are in need of attendance to be able to modify them. This is with the help of a direct or geared attached mechanism in the stem of the valve. Power-operated actuators (like using the gas pressure, and electricity or hydraulic pressure) allows remote modification for the valve or also the large valve’s rapid orientation.

The Damper Actuators

This is to modify the smoke and air with the use of powered dampers. Electric and pneumatic are the two basic types. When it comes to the electric damper, their actuators output differ. he choices include 0 to 12 VDC, 2 to 10 VDC, and 4-20 mA. Whereas, the pneumatic damper actuators’ have a measurement of pounds per square inch (psi).

Sensor

This is a device, machine, module, or subsystem. This device was made to sense or detect events or changes in its environment. Information that they receive is sent to another electronic, usually the computer processor. The sense is always paired up with other electronics.

The Networking

This device allows the HVAC controls to cover a wider area.

The Displayers

This device enables you to monitor your HVAC system.

The Variable Frequency Drives

The HVAC system is managed by this device. It allows itself to power the varying speeds and torque in the motor of an air conditioner due to the speed drive being able to modify.

The devices listed above are very important in the HVAC system. To have these devices means to have a comfortable lifestyle.
