CONSENSOR 

CONDENSATION SENSOR TO 
CONTROL CHILLED BEAM CONDENSATION  

THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR CHILLED BEAM HVAC.
THOUSANDS INSTALLED BY SIEMENS, JOHNSON CONTROLS, TRANE, HONEYWELL, ETC., ETC., ...

Is condensation occurring on your:

- Chilled beam HVAC system?
- Circuit components or enclosure walls?
Liquid cooled heat exchangers?
- Window glass?
Refrigerator/freezer walls?
- Any surface or component of interest?

With a Consensor you know it INSTANTLY!
Control it with the "CG2-CM" Series Consensor

For Chilled Beams & Pipes

For Glass & Flat Surfaces

Both provide an isolated normally/closed solid state SP/ST contact output.

CONSENSORs incorporate unique "FAIL SAFE" technology.

The patented Consensors are not humidity sensors being sold as condensation sensors!

Virtually all other condensation sensors are actually humidistats set to signal a coolant shut down when the adjacent Relative Humidity reaches 80% to 90% RH. Even more costly Dew Point based sensors are dependent on humidity levels. 

The CG2-CM Series incorporate a bi-color LED  which indicates the CONSENSOR's 3 states:
  • Condensation is not occurring   
  • Condensation is occurring, or, 
  • SENSOR FAULT - a unique "Fail Safe" feature

WHAT IS ​THE CONSENSOR ?

All condensation sensors on the market except the patented CONSENSOR, are actually humidistats set to 80% to 90% RH (Relative Humidity).  This means that when the RH in the vicinity of the sensor reaches that preset level, a "condensation" signal is sent to a controlling computer, valve solenoid, etc. Actually, condensation is not occurring at this point, and it may never actually occur at all. The "condensation" signal is very premature.   In fluid cooling applications - Chilled beam HVAC systems, for example, coolant flow will be needlessly stopped - often when it's needed most.

The more elaborate dew point sensors are similarly dependant on the immediate RH. 

The CONSENSOR functions very differently.  It incorporates a very sensitive condensate sensing element that is intimately coupled thermally to your surface of interest - a pipe for example.  So when the pipe surface "sweats", the sensing area also "sweats" simultaneously.  The integrated microprocessor circuit is programmed to signal a condensation condition when a microscopic deposit of condensate appears on the sensing element ... the same instant it appears on your pipe surface ... long before there is any threat of the dreaded condensation  "rain" or drip.

GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS  for Model CG2-CM-P (or "-F")

MOUNTING: 
Pipe mounted ("-P") configuration mounts to pipes (1/2" to 3") with cable ties. Flat surface CONSENSORs (-F) mount with special double-sided thermally conductive tape.


DIMENSIONS: Model CG2-CM-P- Nom. 1.5" X 1.1" X 1.1" H from the pipe surface.


CONNECTION: CG2-CM Series - nom. 10" long 4 conductor cable with stripped wires.


OPERATING TEMPERATURE: 5 to 65*C.

Note: CONSENSORs can safely withstand temperatures below 0*C. 

      But, its operational characteristics in ice or Frost (frozen condensates) have not been studied. 
      We can offer CONSENSORs that are usable up to 80*C on special order.

HUMIDITY: Not a factor.


CONTAMINANTS: The 
CONSENSOR is inert to ordinary dust and similar materials. But if it becomes contaminated with hygroscopic materials that absorb moisture from humidity such as wallboard sandings, various fluids/ fumes, it may require attention. 
     ALL condensation sensor types must breathe the air in their environment, and all can be similarly damaged if excessive amounts of water or condensate saturate their sensing element.
CONSENSORs require no calibration. 


FAIL-SAFE:  Virtually any malfunction will initiate the safest "condensation" signal, and its LED will flash a red- green,  red-green, etc.  "SENSOR FAULT" indication - a unique feature.
