Belimo’s SuperCaps with safety functionality

13 April 2018

The Belimo Super capacitors (SuperCaps) are electrochemical condensers that are faster in response and more reliable than conventional rechargeable batteries. This modern energy storage technology enhances energy efficiency and the functionality of complex safety solutions around the globe. During an electrical power supply interruption, dampers and valves are automatically returned to their fail-safe position with electronic fail-safe control function.

In case of short power failures lasting from 0 to 10 seconds, electronic fail-safe actuators with the control power-off function will avoid unnecessary actuator movements and additional energy usage. The short power failure will be ignored without an interruption in the operation of the system and without any loss of comfort in the building. Also, time and cost to return the system to normal operation are avoided in many cases.
