The ME8300 family of wireless control valve actuators is designed for 2 way communication with other devices based on the EnOcean protocol. Now based on the new TCM320(C) Dolphin Chipset from EnOcean an easy integration allowed Spartan Peripheral Devices to introduce a standardized 2 way communicating actuator. Two way communication and integration into a BACnet/LON gateway, supporting multiple devices wireless and wired, is now possible. Being a modulating unit it can be precisely positioned to flow requirement. This 2 way communication allows carrying extra information to a controller (feedback). Position feedback of the actuator confirms the functionality of the actuator, dual temperature feedback is also available. Temperature sensor can be used to monitor room or media temperature all in the same single actuator, without using an extra point on your controller. Feedback returned to the BAS system gives you extra control without extra cost. The actuator is based on a proven mechanical gearbox, designed for more than 500,000 cycles. Utilizing a brushless synchronous AC motor with constant torque and speed, it allows precise positioning over the full span of the valve travel. The positioning is paired with an electro-optical rotation counter allowing for absolute positioning without drifting.
This actuator can be integrated in an autonomous zone system (per room) or part of a large network system. Each zone can combine different components, from a simple point-to-point Thermostat/Actuator combo, to a more elaborate combination of different components* based on the EnOcean protocol to allow different energy saving scenarios. On a larger scale all autonomous systems can be integrated into a network that can be controlled through different gateways.
