Aircuity Environmental Monitoring

Facilities use significant amounts of energy to provide their laboratory areas with 100% fresh air ventilation. These facilities are designed with sophisticated control systems to create a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for the animals, personnel, and to preserve the integrity of the research conducted. Aircuity continuously monitors critical indoor parameters, lowering the ventilation when the air is clean and increasing fresh air when lab activity or building occupancy levels rise. 

The Aircuity system monitors environmental parameters and adjusts air supply and exhaust delivery based on indoor contaminant levels and thermal load. The automated system samples and analyzes packets of air which are routed to a centralized suite of sensors. The system provides input to the building ventilation systems to optimize indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency. 

How Does Aircuity Work?:

  • Air Samples: Air packets are drawn from individual test areas through the Air Data Router
  • Routed: The air packets are routed sequentially to the Sensor Suite
  • Sensed: The Sensor Suite analyzes each air sample
  • Feedback: Smart signals are given to the lab or building management system for ventilation control

Air quality problems that could affect research results can be quickly detected and remedied before the animals are substantially impacted.

Aircuity/Watchdog EX Partnership

The primary focus of a vivarium is to create a simulated natural environment for raising animals for observation or research. By combining real-time sensing and continuous analysis of indoor environments, the company has helped commercial, institutional and lab building owners lower operating costs, improve safety and become more energy efficient.

Benefits:

  • Energy Cost Savings
  • Healthier Environments for all Occupants
  • Reduced Deferred Maintenance Backlog
  • Reduced Operations and Maintenance Spend
  • Data Analytics for Continuous Commissioning.

Connect your Aircuity System with Watchdog EX and take advantage of the powerful features both systems have to offer. Watchdog EX is able to take data coming from the Aircuity System to provide valuable monitoring, alarming, and notification capabilities. Take advantage of actionable insights, transparency, and accountability to building owners and facility managers that need to verify tightly controlled environments (humidity levels, particulate levels, etc.), it is the solution to deploy!
