PRESS RELEASE: OpenAir: damper actuators for every application

The OpenAir range from Siemens Building Technologies represents a comprehensive portfolio of energy efficient, reliable and flexible damper actuators tailored to suit individual user requirements.

Boasting rapid installation and extra-long service life, the established range of damper actuators offer torque ratings from 2Nm to 35Nm, combining high positioning forces with low consumption motors.

An effective building automation system requires fast and accurate response times in order to guarantee a comfortable environment. The high performance OpenAir range can be relied upon to deliver time and again – proving a robust and cost effective long-term solution.

HVAC installations are often far from straightforward, presenting challenges based on location and environmental surroundings. The extensive OpenAir range guarantees a best-fit solution, simplifying the installation process and ensuring maximum safety.

Self-centering shaft adaptors help to keep installation outlay to a minimum and completely eradicate the risk of mounting errors. Four recognised housing sizes cover all HVAC applications – including challenging installations such as air-conditioning solutions in trains.

Reducing outlay and increasing convenience, networked OpenAir Variable Air Volume (VAV) controllers feature standardised and open communications protocols, allowing for installation in all systems, regardless of manufacturer. Fast and simple adjustments to VAV boxes pave the way for simple, stress-free installation.

On top of the energy saving benefits, flexibility and ease of installation, OpenAir damper actuators offer exceptionally quiet operation and outstanding levels of reliability. Modbus RTU enabled models are easily integrated into existing systems and wiring costs are kept to a minimum as there is no need for point-to-point wiring.

Further enhancing the appeal, users benefit from a wide range of positioning forces, control signals, communications standards and add-on options – whatever the application, there is an OpenAir damper actuator to suit all tastes.

Siemens Building Technologies has developed the HIT tool (HVAC Integrated Tool) which allows users to enter the part number from a different manufacturer and find the equivalent damper actuator from the OpenAir range. This innovative online tool is accessible at
