IPSUM STRA Room Controller Settings

IPSUM STRA Room Controller Settings

Demand Controlled Ventilation adjusts the level of air to the room’s actual needs. This means that a high indoor climate quality can be achieved at the same time as energy consumption is kept to a minimum. Natural areas for demand controlled ventilation are rooms with sharply varying loads such as conference rooms and meeting rooms. However, even in modern office spaces loads vary a great deal. Many studies show that often no more than half of the workplaces in an office are in use at the same time. Fläkt Woods has long worked with simple systems for demand controlled ventilation. With our new IPSUM optimization system we are taking another giant step forward. IPSUM will help you optimize the pressure and temperature in your climate control system. The development of IPSUM has also concentrated on simplicity. For example, this means providing a web interface that uses a number of smart functions to help you with commissioning and in-service monitoring. A prerequisite for IPSUM is that the Air Handling Unit is equipped with fan control. Take a step forward with IPSUM!


  1. Pressure optimisation provides energy savings
  2. Temperature optimisation provides energy savings
  3. Free cooling provides energy savings
  4. Energy monitoring in real time
  5. The fire protection function provides increased safety
  6. Full control down to room level


IPSUM optimises the pressure and temperature setpoints in the Air Handling Unit to achieve the lowest possible operating costs. In addition to the product dependent components necessary for a VAV system, the IPSUM system consists of three components.

  • IPSUM System Optimizer – Optimises operational data for the air handling unit.
  • IPSUM System Router – Links rooms, floors and zones.
  • IPSUM Connection Unit – Connects the products to the system, for example room controllers and actuators. IPSUM will manage waterborne and airborne systems – even where the installation contains a mix of both
