Programmed Controls for an All-Electric School.
Novak, W.J.
Electrical Construction and Maintenance, n38 October 1965
Heating and ventilating equipment used in the all-electric upper Elementary School in Bedford, New Hampshire, is controlled to insure optimum comfort while the school is occupied and optimum economy of standby operation while it is not in use. A master clock programs all control functions while its mechanism drives two types of tapes--(1) a 365 day tape, and (2) three 24-hour tapes. The "heating" tape is programmed to accomplish night setbacks of thermostats during unoccupied periods, while the "ventilating" tapes control ventilation fans, exhaust fans, and damper motors. For control purposes, circuiting was divided into four zones--(1) classrooms, (2) gymnasium, (3) cafetorium and offices, and (4) library. To permit unscheduled after-hour use of school facilities without disturbing the punched tapes, manual override switches are provided. (RH)
