Fan Failure Monitoring

The undetected failure of fan coil units is a long standing problem in heating and ventilation. Fan coil units like the types found in h&v applications tend to be unmonitored and system failures can often go unnoticed to the point where a refit or refurbishment is required or where air simply ceases to flow from the ductwork. The oldest format for monitoring the FCU is to use differential pressure switches. An FCU would place a differential pressure switch on either side of the fan inlet and outlet and monitor the pressure difference bet...
