TEKADOOR’S NEW TOUCH-SCREEN CONTROL WITH INTUITIVE OPERATION
COMBINE DIFFERENT AUTOMATION OPERATIONS TO CONTROL YOUR ENERGY COSTS AND HAVE A SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE IMPACT ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY
For many years, the effectiveness of air curtain systems was measured by their screening performance, but nowadays this performance must also meet energy-related normative requirements that aim to increase energy efficiency. TEKADOOR is therefore continuously developing the components of its air curtain systems. The air curtains have been equipped with ebm-papst fans for years, and their energy-saving effectiveness is complemented by the advanced GTC control system. State-of-the-art technology with a wide range of operating and application options is thus combined in the best possible way with comfort for the user and operator.
IMPROVED GTC CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
TEKADOOR combines the new control options of GTC with a 5″ touch-screen display, which is almost self-explanatory to operate due to its intuitive menu guidance and easy to set for a wide range of applications. A distinction is made between the standard control GTC 1 and the comfort control GTC 2, as well as the GTC E control for door air curtain systems with electric heating coil.
All controls have, among other things, a unique feature: the operator can choose between a 5-step or stepless speed control for all units with EC fans and thus fine-tune them even more precisely!
By touching the respective function surfaces/symbols, individual operating modes can be adjusted to suit the operator. The colour display clearly shows the respective operating modes and symbol displays. The date, time and room temperature are displayed as standard.
The room temperature is recorded as standard via an internal temperature sensor in the control panel.
The GTC 1 control includes a summer/winter circuit, frost protection circuit with optional frost protection, an adjustable maintenance interval (cleaning of the intake grille or filter) and an input for an additional temperature sensor.
With our comfort control GTC 2, 12 different switching times per week can be stored in a timer mode.
It is also possible to operate the door air curtain system via a constant discharge temperature (an additional electronic control valve is required for this).
Depending on requirements and on-site conditions, the user can choose between different operating modes:
– Manual – manual operation
– Auto AS – automatic operation via cool-down protection
– Auto RT – automatic operation via room temperature
– Auto TK – automatic operation via door contact
– Auto Kombi – combination option of all individual automatic modes
Likewise, up to 10 door air curtains can be operated in parallel via 1 operating unit in the master / slave principle by different coding of the control boards.
The control board is built into the air curtain unit and a 20m pre-assembled data cable (connection between air curtain and control panel) is included in the scope of delivery.
By combining the various automatic operations as required, the operator can directly ‘control’ his energy costs and have a significant positive influence on energy efficiency.
Integration into existing on-site control systems
As standard, all our controls have a potential-free enabling contact for the on-site BMS / DDC and potential-free operating and fault signalling contacts.
For complete integration into an on-site building management system, our controls can be easily expanded with corresponding modules.
DDC boards and modules for a Modbus connection are available as optional accessories.
