GF-N3000

RS-485 BACnet/Modbus Airflow/Temperature Transmitter Module w/Contact Closure Airflow Alarm

The GF-N3000 transmitter is functionally the same as the GF-A2000 with the excpetion that the BAS connection is via RS-485 field selectable BACnet MS/TP or Modbus RTU. In addition to airflow, temperature and alarm capability, device status is also available via the network.

  • Provide continuous verification of airflow rates
  • Ideal for monitoring applications
  • Connect to an application controller to maintain airflow rates and/or temperature
  • Demonstrate compliance with ASHRAE Standards 62.1, 90.1 and 189.1
  • Satisfy LEED prerequisites and document code compliance
  • Improve indoor air quality and thermal comfort
  • Save energy

  • “Plug and play” operation
  • Fully field configurable
  • Field adjust wizard facilitates airflow adjustment when conditions warrant.

OVERVIEW

The GF-N3000 can be provided with a single integrated IAT-DI duct probe or, one or two integrated IAT-UI or IAT-US universal mount probes.

The GF-N3000 provides a network connection for the average airflow of one or two probes. It can also be configured to output the airflow of the second probe for applications where two probes are installed in separate locations. Temperature and notification alarms are available via the network. The airflow and temperature of individual sensor nodes are available via the network, if desired. A contact closure relay is provided that can be assigned to the notification alarms. The GF-N3000 can be configured for I-P or SI units of measure.

Although the transmitter is “plug and play” and operates on power up, it is fully configurable in the field using the pushbutton interface and LCD.

FUNCTIONALITY

Airflow Measurement: Provides the average airflow rate of one or two probes, or optionally of individual probes, in FPM [m/s] or CFM [LPS] on the LCD and via the network.

Temperature Measurement: Provides the velocity weighted or arithmetic average temperature in ⁰F [ ⁰C] on the LCD and to analog output AO2 when AO2 is assigned to temperature.

Notification Alarms

High/Low Airflow Alarm

System Trouble Alarm

Note: Alarms can be assigned to the contact closure relay
