 Series 1000
Patent 6,757,589B1
Other Patents Pending

Series 1000 / 2000 / 3000 / 4000

At each science classroom provide a Utility Controller with door panel mounted switches to activate remote solenoids and relays to control the domestic water, natural gas, and electrical convenience outlets at student work stations.  The Controller shall be equipped with a key activated safety switch and door panel mounted momentary panic button assembly.   Controller shall be integrated with the energy management system and monitored by the building alarm system. 

Optional Circuits:

·  Provide remote auxiliary circuit to permit connection of LA Series Companion Controller to operate circuits and solenoids at the teacher prep area or    demonstration station.

·  Provide restrictive control to exhaust fans and fume hood.

Other Uses for the Utility Controller

 
Home Economics Classrooms The same control capabilities used for the safe activation of science classroom student workstations can also control activation of potentially dangerous appliances such as gas and electric stoves, blenders, and food processors.  The risk of accidental shock or burn is greatly reduced because the instructor can determine which appliances a student may activate.

Master Controllers – Utilizing in a design any of our standard Controller Units or Time Sequencing Units with a series of Remote Operators can create a Master-to-Slave operating environment.   This type of control package is specifically intended for use in research lab facilities where a vast number of laboratories require only the emergency control of the fuel gas systems.  Consult the factory for specific features than can be offered to accommodate the design requirements for specific projects.


 

ISIMET UtC 1000 Utility Controller

Product Description
The Utility Controller is a Safety Device that regulates the control of various utility services and devices such as domestic water, natural gas, and electrical outlets within a science classroom, other instructional facilities, research and medical facilities. The solid state electronic controller provides an electronic signal to relays that in turn provide electrical current to relays, contacts and low voltage solenoid valves, activating the utility service.

    ISIMET Utility Controllers and Companion Enclosures
    Two Hour Fire Rating

    UL Test #1479

    All ISIMET Utility Controllers, Enclosures and Accessories can be certified for two-hour fire rating.  Working closely with the industry leader in fire rated materials, ISIMET can offer our enclosures with a one-half inch fire rated blanket.  This blanket that is adhered to the outer surface of the enclosure will enable the installer to incorporate the ISIMET product into a fire rated wall without the need for additional blanket or other rated material.

    To specify a unit as “Fire Rated” use the following nomenclature:

    Add to the ISIMET Part Number:  Prefix “F2” for all Utility Controllers, Companion Enclosures and Accessories.  Model numbers are for example only.

    UtC-F2-12X9 indicates a four-circuit Utility Controller with fire blanket.

    LA-F2-1212 indicates a wall mounted LA Series with fire blanket.

    FLA-F2-2235 indicates a wall mounted FLA Series with fire blanket.

    E-F2-1212 indicates a twelve-circuit E-Series with fire blanket.

    S-F2-1211-3-3/4-K indicates a three-station S-Series with fire blanket.

    MLA-F2-1-B indicates a Monitoring Beacon with fire blanket.

    All components utilized in this “Fire Rating” will be provided with additional instructions for installation in order to insure that the rated material and process is not violated or damaged during installation.  Fire caulking as well as foil tape and extra blanket material is included for all components except for accessories.  Accessories are provided with foil tap and extra blanket only.  Fire caulking will need to be field provided.  Enclosure Sizes limited to 24” X 24” X 8” and smaller.
