More Sensing, Fewer SensorsTM
AntrumX’s patented air accelerator uses your building’s differential pressure to create a vacuum that continuously draws air from every monitored space. Air travels from the faceplate in every room through quarter-inch tubing to our patented sensor pack located in the monitoring panel. There, it’s analyzed and IAQ data is communicated to the BMS, allowing you to optimize ventilation, create healthy spaces, and save energy.
AntrumX is comprised of three main parts, the air accelerator, the faceplate, and the monitoring panel, all of which are connected by tubing, making installation simple. The monitoring panel is commissioned through the Antrum mobile app, with no special hardware or software required.
Antrum’s patented air accelerator uses the building supply pressure of the existing HVAC system to create a continuous vacuum in every room being monitored—the room being actively sampled as well as the idle rooms. The air accelerator is connected to the multiplexer, which selects and routes one room to the sensor pack every minute. There, the room air is sampled and IAQ parameters are measured and reported to the cloud and BMS. There are no moving parts on the air accelerator and therefore no energy input to the system other than the negligible parasitic loss on the supply and exhaust fan motors in the AHU serving the rooms being sampled.
AntrumX’s faceplate, with its high-gloss finish and flush mounting, was designed to be simple and aesthetically pleasing. The faceplate collects air samples from each space and delivers them to the centrally located sensor pack through 1/4″ flame retardant poly tubing.
The AntrumX monitoring panel is where it all comes together. Located in the mechanical room and easily accessible, the monitoring panel houses the core of AntrumX technology, the sensor pack and the gateway. The sensor pack is comprised of unique sensors with specific performance characteristics designed to facilitate demand-controlled ventilation or monitoring-only purposes. The ability to monitor a variety of IAQ parameters from a single location results in more accurate data, which leads to significant maintenance and energy savings, a better ventilation strategy, and an overall healthier building. The gateway integrates the sensor pack, building management system, and the cloud. The gateway receives data from the sensor pack and uploads the data to the cloud for further analysis. This data is available on AntrumEYE and the AntrumEYE mobile app. This data is also communicated to the BMS to allow for better overall space-level control.
AntrumX uses an onboard secure element to store encrypted certificates for communicating with AntrumEYE APIs over HTTPS using TLS. AntrumX utilizes X.509 certificate for identity, a minimum 2048 bit RSA key, and asymmetric cryptography to ensure that customer data is encrypted end to end.
Ease of Installation
AntrumX is installed without any special software, equipment, or tools. To install:
- Route tubing from the faceplate in each monitored space back to the monitoring panel.
- Connect air accelerator between the ductwork and the monitoring panel. Panel requires 120V power, BMS, and an ethernet connection. NO additional wiring.
