After a programme of user feedback and evolution lasting almost a decade, VentSim CONTROL is today delivering outstanding results. In 2015, we developed a no programming 'plug and play' approach by incorporating instrumentation, automation, fans, dampers and fan motor starters that can be integrated quickly and easily into any Ventsim CONTROL system. Today, any type and size of Howden fan can be supplied in that 'plug and play' configuration.

Howden's Ventsim CONTROL is an upgrade from Ventsim DESIGN that utilizes intelligent software connected to Howden's or third parties hardware devices to remotely monitor control and automate airflow heating and cooling to deliver safer more productive and lower cost ventilation for your mine. The software comes pre-programmed ready to be configured to suit your needs.
The operator uses the Ventsim CONTROL interface to remotely turn fans on or off, to modify their speed or to set the % on regulators. Settings stay as they are until manually changed.
Ventsim CONTROL automatically changes underground fan and regulator settings as part of a schedule such as shift changes or planned events such as blasting.
The operator enters set points for airflow, gas levels, and/or temperature. Ventsim CONTROL reads real-time conditions from monitoring stations, then automatically adjusts underground fan and regulator settings to maintain set points.
VentSim CONTROL uses dynamic tracking to determine requirements for airflow, gas levels, and temperature based on personnel and vehicles in each area. Ventsim CONTROL reads real-time conditions from monitoring stations and automatically adjusts underground fan and regulator settings to maintain safe and comfortable working conditions in a dynamic environment.
Ventsim CONTROL reads real-time conditions from monitoring stations and automatically optimizes underground fan and regulator settings, and also adjusts main fan settings to maintain required levels and maximize energy savings. This level of optimization controls the ventilation system as a whole using advanced control strategies designed for mine ventilation applications.
