A game-changing 2-in-1 solution

control

Controls

Balancing & control function dynamically compensates for pressure fluctuations providing optimum room comfort and high energy efficiency under all conditions.

measures

Measures

Continuous measurement of flow, valve position, temperature difference and power with outstanding accuracy in water / water-glycol mixtures over a wide range of temperatures and pressures.

"Measuring is Knowing"

Key Features

1.

Controls & Measures

Market-leading control performance, from 0.5% to 100% of qnom, thanks to great valve controllability and fast response time. Highly accurate flow measurement with ultrasonic technology, even in low flow conditions and in water-glycol mixtures.

 

Did you know? 

HVAC systems operate 80% of the time at less than 50% of their design load, which is less than 20% of flow. TA-Smart's great control and measurement capability at low flow rates allows you to achieve optimal indoor comfort all year-round. Learn more

2.

Logs real-time & Continuous data points

Continuous local or cloud data logging of key circuit parameters: flow, valve position, temperature difference, power and fluid content, through a versatility of communication modes, both digital and analog.

3.

Smarter building performance

Measuring is knowing. Seamless accessibility to critical circuit parameters and valve configuration information directly via your smartphone, even without BUS communication. Eliminate system opacity, reduce operating costs and enable better troubleshooting and optimization.

4.

Convenient Installation

Compact valve size - up to 83% smaller than competitor products - allows for seamless mounting capabilities even in retrofit applications. This 2-in-1 solution removes the need to install additional devices to fulfill measurement requirements from regulations and certifications.

5.

Outstanding mechatronic engineering

Valve entirely developed in-house by R&D teams to achieve best in class control performance mastering both energy meter technology and leveraging expertise on control valves.

Benefits at every stage

Design

Comfort and Energy efficency

Best in class control function no matter the flow regime, even in part-load conditions as low as 0.5% of flow, delivering comfort and energy savings under all circumstances.

 

Peace of Mind

Versatility of valve control modes, operating according to q, P, and Δt. TA-Smart measures the temperature, flow and power to determine the control characteristic that is best aligned with the terminal unit.

 

Time savings

Full transparency of the valve settings and easy adjustments can be done via remote access anytime, even without BUS communication.

 

Meets Regulations

Combined control & measuring function in 1 solution eliminates the need to install additional measuring components to comply with regulations and certifications.

Installation

Time savings

The combined control & measuring function in a single device eliminates the need to install additional components. TA-Smart has been designed to be the easiest to be installed in the market. The actuator comes pre-assembled and only has two components to be fitted.

 

Peace of Mind

Rely on automatic hydronic balancing as you would with a PIBCV. This self-optimizing dynamic valve balances fluctuations in pressure and automatically balances the system without the need for complex calculation or flow regulating valves.

Commissioning

Versatility

Flexible communication protocols and free choice of control (BACnet, Modbus, analog signal).

 

Peace of Mind

All data can be seamlessly forwarded to the cloud to allow for full system transparency and data-based analysis. The web-based application allows you to check and verify values at any time, even remotely.

 

Time savings

No need for any additional device (laptop, dongle) than your smartphone to access the valve and observe the system changes. Valve settings can be easily changed even during operation.

Operation

Comfort and Energy Efficiency

TA-Smart continuously monitors the temperature, flow, valve position, and power– and adapts the valve characteristic to the system requirements (circuit characteristics or terminal unit characteristics). The continuous monitoring of enables a quick overview of the system performance over time. It will adapt to changes in the system requirements and guarantee cost-effective comfort by providing stable control over the full range of flows.

TA-Smart is a dynamic valve that balances pressure fluctuations and stabilizes the indoor climate—leading to high efficiency and a significant reduction in energy use. The fast valve response and its good controllability guarantees a good control even at high available differential pressure and low flows.

 

Peace of mind

TA-Smart continuously monitors values and records critical data. In case of irregularities, you can check where the problem is and correct it immediately. Even changes in building use or plant expansions are not a problem. Allowing you to guarantee a consistently smooth operation in the long term.

Renovation

Time savings

Compact size enables retro-fit installation limiting the need of additional union components to connect to existing pipes. Less space requirements thanks to reduced upstream and downstream pipe length requirements.

 

Comfort and Energy efficiency

Great control functions no matter the existing flow regime, even in low flow conditions. Particularly good at adapting to the existing system conditions to deliver superior indoor comfort.
