GEA MATRIX® Control System
Controlling efficiently and saving resources
With its GEA MATRIX® control system, Air Treatment offers its own closed-loop control system: one that is efficiently applied throughout its product portfolio. This system enables numerous benefits for installation companies, investors, planners, and users. GEA MATRIX®, a complete control package, makes the choice of matching closed-loop-control components simple and effective. And the unified concept enables intuitive initial startup. Operator control units automatically adapt to the respective main system, which makes them universally applicable.
But it’s not only faster and easier installation that relieves your budget: thanks to function-oriented selection of options, you pay only for those control functions that are actually required. In addition, the possibility of combinations provides great flexibility and ensures that your choice is actually effective.
GEA MATRIX® features only 5 different groups of components:
Operator control units allow the entry of setpoints, and inform the user of important system status conditions. Controllers compare setpoint and actual values, provide closed-loop control and monitor the systems, and react to external events. System power sections convert control signals from this electronic control system into switching commands. Global modules are available to expand functionality. These modules receive control signals, control actuators from the pump to the chiller, and implement the interface to external systems (e.g., a building management system). And finally, convenient PC software guarantees smooth initial startup, parameterization, and system analysis.
Areas of application
The GEA MATRIX® range of closed-loop control systems provides optimal control for each and every Air Treatment product. GEA MATRIX® is integrated into GEA HVAC systems in the factory, where it is configured for the individual application and then tested as a unit together with the main product being controlled. GEA MATRIX® enables convenient and resource-saving closed-loop control system for room climate, in application with the following product groups:
- Fan coil units
- Under-floor convectors
- Unit heaters
- Air-extraction fans
- Compact central air-handling units
- Modular central air-handling units
