AirMATION Automatic Activation

1) Bay Door Activation, standard for all installations.

Opening or closing bay doors activates AirMATION® units for a preset time interval. Availability and design of the bay door activation feature is based on your door configurations. The activation system is applicable with any bay door design.

Most bay doors use an electric eye installed on the bay door, spanning all connected doors. Additional eyes may be required if an obstruction exists between bay doors and for drive-through doors. A metal bracket beam interrupter is installed on each bay door. When the door opens or closes the bracket interrupts the electric-eye light beam and triggers a system activation signal. The electric eye circuits are wired to the Timer Control Maintenance Monitor (TCMM) to automatically activate all the AirMATION® units. Any vehicle or apparatus driving through a bay door will also break the light-beam and activate the system. The electric eye light-beam is installed seven feet high to prevent activation by personnel walking or working in the vicinity of a bay door.

On bay doors that swing open or slide apart a set of magnetic-relays takes the place of the metal bracket to assure the AirMATION® units are activated by any bay-door movement.

2) Optional Tone Control Activation, option

AirMATION® units can be activated via the TCMM from an existing or newly installed Tone Alarm System. This means that the AirMATION® units can be activated well before the starting of the apparatus engines, and before the normal door activation, as a tone alarm is received by the facility.

3) Carbon Monoxide (CO) Activation, options

All units connected to the Timer Control and Maintenance Monitor will engage and activate when the sensor's preset conditions are reached, operating until clean air is restored. This sensor provides an additional level of protection, acting as an automatic fail safe activation when these invisible, odorless gases rise to unsafe levels. You'll enjoy unmatched levels of safe breathing air in the apparatus bays. Sensors are especially important when pump tests are done on the tarmac or inside the station. When power saws are used and when CO levels rise for any reason, AirMATION® automatically activates to remove these noxious gases.

you can select the gas detector which can sense very precise concentrations of gas and provide two levels of alarm. The first adjustable alarm level will start the AirMATION® filtration system. All units connected to the TCMM or the Timer Control Box (TCB) will engage and begin to remove the poisonous gases from the bay area. A second adjustable alarm level activates an audible alarm to alert personnel to a more dangerous situation. An optional dry contact may be used to signal an internal or remote alarm system when the second alarm is reached.

A visual display detector, if selected, indicates the concentration of each gas in the vicinity of the unit. The gases detected, along with the factory set alarm points, are labeled on the detector. After gases are reduced to below alarm levels, the units operate for the preset interval.

The optimum location of the gas detection hardware depends on the gas being monitored. The installation manual will provide the best sensor location for the particular gas sensor being installed.

An optional dual-gas monitor consists of one sensor in the base unit and one mounted remotely. The base unit display indicates the status of both sensors.

4) Apparatus Start Up, option

The Transmitter/Receiver is a remote control system between a vehicle and the TCMM or TCB. It is designed to activate the AirMATION® system when signaled from one or more vehicles. A single channel is provided to start the AirMATION® when a vehicle is started. Three additional outputs of the receiver can be connected to interface with a door opener that has a pushbutton control to OPEN, CLOSE and STOP the door. Many other devices may also be operated, the receiver, however, is limited to 4 outputs. Multiple transmitters may operate a single receiver or multiple transmitters may each operate their own receiver. Dip switches in the transmitter and receiver are provided to match the transmitter to the receiver. Thirty-two different codes are possible permitting a single installation to have up to 32 vehicles.
