Serpent Automatic A20
The smart Serpent Automatic module minimizes energy consumption while ensuring compliance with any environmental requirements and regulations. Sensors regularly measure carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide levels to determine air quality, then automatically adjust fan speed to continuously ensure adequate air flow and a perfectly regulated underground work environment. Serpent fan stations already in use, or other ventilation system equipped with frequency converter, can easily be upgraded to include the new automatic functions. Serpent Automatic is delivered as a central module that is mounted onto the base station, while the sensors are placed in the tunnel or mine. "It has been very important for us to create a truly installation-friendly solution. The only thing you need is a wireless network”, says Matthäus.
