Phoenix Controls Introduces Advanced Zone Presence Sensor

Phoenix Controls, an environmental control systems provider, has announced the availability of the an advanced zone presence sensor, the ZPS300, which is an economical solution capable of considerably minimizing energy consumption without loss of system efficiency or compromising on personnel safety.

The ZPS300 sensor has been designed to monitor the region facing a fume hood to sense the presence of an operator. An increase of airflow within the fume hood to the pre-set ventilator is triggered only in the presence of an operator for safe operation. In the event of the sash left open without an operator present, the ZPS300 sensor communicates with the controls of the fume hood to reduce the airflow to the safe limit in order to minimize the cooling and heating demands. The ZPS300 can save up to 40 % energy in laboratory applications.

The General Manager of Phoenix Controls, Vineet Nargolwala stated that the company aims at providing state-of-the-art ventilation solutions that have a high regard for personnel safety and minimize energy consumption as well.

The ZPS300 sensor uses advanced IR detection technology to function efficiently in all lighting conditions, i.e., in lit and extremely dark ambient conditions. It constantly scans the detection zone and has been designed to distinguish between inanimate objects and the operator. Furthermore, it is a backward compatible sensor, which can be used with other products as well. Phoenix Controls’ ZPS300 sensor package includes software for troubleshooting and configuring the parameters.
