Lumina 16 Control
Lumina 16 Control
The Lumina 16 climate computer, which was specially developed for application in the typical American Power – Tunnel houses, controls ventilation. The special control in the Lumina 16 computer creates a gradual transition from minimum (power) ventilation to maximum (tunnel) ventilation without interrupting the air flow.
I-fan pit fans

At minimum ventilation, air enters the house through ceiling inlets and is exhausted by five I-fans. Four I-fan 24” fans have been built in as pit fans. The air is extracted via the pit to remove harmful gasses such as ammonia accumulating in the pit area. To provide extra capacity, a fifth 32” I-fan has been installed in the side wall of each house.
Tunnel ventilation

The tunnel ventilation is activated if the ventilation capacity increases. The curtain in front of the tunnel inlet opens and the large fans in the gable are activated one by one.
