Solar impact sensor

Finalist in Networked Building Automation Systems/Controls, Energy Management Systems in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition

05/09/2011


The QLS60 solar impact sensor from Siemens Industry, Inc. helps building systems designers implement renewable energy strategies in new construction and remodeling projects by using solar loading data as an input for control. The sensor can be used as a reference sensor in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning control schemes where compensating for solar radiation is required, especially in buildings with extensive exposure to sunlight. Solar thermal hot water systems and window blind controls can also be regulated by input from this sensor. The sensor is also useful for acquiring LEED points per USGBC standards.
