Using CO2 sensors with VAV-B
We were recently asked if it would be possible to utilize CO2 sensors with the VAV-B in order to control CFM setpoints. At this particular site, they want to add CO2 sensors to some of the VAV-Bs and command the CFM setpoint to the MAX CFM when CO2 gets above 800 ppm. In the VAV-B manual, there is a scenario that explains how to do this when the CO2 sensor is directly attached to the VAV-B. It is located at the end of the manual in Appendix B.
But what if you don’t have any available inputs on the VAV-B and your CO2 sensor is located on a different controller? In this case, the logic to make this happen will have to come from CBAS.
