ECOGLASS - AUTOMATIC INACTIVITY CONTROLLER REF 819740

ECOGLASS - AUTOMATIC INACTIVITY CONTROLLER REF 819740

ECOGLASS is an efficiency optimised system designed to reduce fume hood energy consumption by automatically closing a moveable sash after detecting inactivity.

A motion sensor detects the activity of laboratory personnel and the presence of objects in the path of the sash. The ECOGLASS controller recognises and acts upon a period of pre-programmed inactivity and automatically triggers the lowering command to close the sash to its lowest point. A magnetic compensator releases the sash and controls its descent to the end of its path. A safety device then interrupts the descent in case of activity or objects in the sashes path while a control switch allows laboratory operatives to disengage the magnetic compensator, allowing them to operate the sash.

FEATURES

Automatic closing

After a configurable period of inactivity, whatever the initial position of the window, it is closed to its lowest point. The detection sensor can be installed on the front of the sash or flush-mounted.

Inactivity sensor

Movement generated by a weight imbalance between the sash and its counterweight.

No motorization

Ecoglass allows the handling of the fume hood with or without power and ensures that the glass remains in position.

Installation

Different configurations are possible depending on the position of the counterweight and the type of mechanisms (compatible with cable or belt transmission).

ADVANTAGES 

• Automatic descent without motorization.

• Adapts to all movable sash mechanisms.

• Quick installation without modification of the fume hood.
