Building Controls II: Control Sensors

Building control systems are important facets in any building’s energy management plan. They help avoid waste and save money. A vital component of a control system is the sensors that are incorporated into the system. We must measure what we wish to control.  We need to have a way to make measurements accurately and repeatedly.  Sensors measure the data that the controller uses to make decisions based on its set of programmed standards and set points. Sensors are the first step of control.  This course provides an overview of the various sensors integrated in a building control system, and looks at the variety of designs and need for correct placement.
