COSTAR® 24VC-e ventilation control solution
Nowadays air quality is becoming vitally important. The news broadcast alerts warning their viewers and listeners when high pollution levels compromise the outdoor air quality. We are in habit of
In case of improper ventilation indoor parking garages can expose users to poisonous gases. Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas that is present in car emissions. Carbon monoxide can quickly build to toxic levels without the victim realizing it. Carbon monoxide exposure causes headaches, nausea, and fatigue. Higher levels of CO in the body produce confusion, staggering, heart palpitations, unconsciousness, and even death. As Carbon monoxide fills the area it depletes the oxygen and, if unchecked, it can ultimately lead to asphyxiation. This created a threat even to those building occupants who avoid the parking garage. They are at risk because the elevators, stairwells, and ineffective ventilation systems can allow dangerous gases to infiltrate an entire structure.
Quantum Group Inc. offers COSTAR® 24VC-e ventilation control solution that monitors unsafe levels of CO in your parking garage to protect the health and wellbeing of your building’s occupants. While proper ventilation is essential for elimination of CO, continuously running ventilation systems increase your energy usage, resulting in higher costs. The COSTAR® 24VC-e lowers operating costs by activating the fan only when required to maintain good air quality while enhancing safety by alarming if dangerous CO conditions are detected. In fact, in many cases, installation of CO monitoring and ventilation systems can generate up to 85% savings in energy costs.
COSTAR® 24VC-e carbon monoxide detecting ventilation fan controller is designed for use where ventilation fans are needed to prevent dangerous accumulations of carbon monoxide (CO) from
Although only required for systems that are connected to a central panel these units have in field CO test capability. When the test button is pressed, the unit goes into an accelerated test mode for about 10 minutes and will beep 3 short 100 millisecond beeps once before going into the test mode. In this mode, there are no delays associated with the fans or siren. This allows someone to spray some CO on the sensor and see how it responds. After testing the unit returns to normal operation and will beep 2 short 100 millisecond beeps before returning to normal operation.
COSTAR® 24VC-e effectively controls CO for a wide variety of structures: indoor parking facilities, bus garages, service garages, arenas, fire stations, loading docks, warehouses, and more. COSTAR® 24VC-e can be installed as a building is being constructed or retrofitted in your older building. Quantum’s COSTAR® 24VC-e is not only for parking structures, though. Poor air quality can exist in other parts of your structure and in buildings without garages as well. Quantum Group Inc. can supply your building with the best quality technology and service. Quantum’s technology was found the most reliable, according to tests performed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. We have been the premier developer and manufacturer of carbon monoxide sensors, alarms, detectors and carbon monoxide controls that are false alarm free in Southern California for many years, and we look forward to helping you with all your CO needs.
