The ESP zone panels integrate standard zone panels with
award-winning ESP, Electronic Static Pressure, technology.
Each panel comes with a static pressure sensor.
How it works
The system works like any standard zone control system with one exception. A static pressure sensor continuously monitors the system static pressure, and if the static goes above it’s set point the zone panel will send a signal to the dampers that are in the closed position (those not calling for heating or cooling) to start to open a small amount to keep the pressure from going above setpoint. The small amount of air that is allowed to bleed into the non-calling zones eliminates air noise and assures proper airflow.
Tests indicate that bleeding a small amount of conditioned air for a short period of time into non-calling zones has little to no impact on the zone temperature. In most cases the non-calling zones are above or below setpoint and can absorb the additional conditioned air without causing any temperature deviation.
Zone Control System with built in Static Pressure Control eliminates the need for a bypass damper.
