The Halton Smart Override (HSO) feature allows the damper to be reinstated without carrying a cumbersome portable compressed air bottle. By pulling the locking knob and rotating the handle, the damper can be opened in seconds. This procedure disconnects the actuator from the damper driveshaft. Once the power and/or pneumatic air supply is reinstated, the auto-reset functionality of the Halton Smart Override (HSO) tool will automatically reset the damper back to normal operation. This auto-reset feature is critical in ensuring that the HVAC damper cannot inadvertently be left open or disengaged in error.
The Halton Smart Override (HSO) feature also helps during the construction phase during which ventilation ducts need to be open but power is not available for the dampers to stay in the open position.
The Halton Smart Override (HSO) feature is available for all electrically or pneumatically operated Halton Marine dampers, such as FDA, FDO, FDB2, FDL, FDH, UTP, and UTA.
