Naval Air Station Fallon is home to the TOPGUN program. Yes…that TOPGUN. The official title is the Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, SFTI for short (pronounce that siff-tee, you’ll sound like you know your stuff). SFTI began in 1969 aboard Naval Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California. The course runs about 12 weeks and is held at the Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center aboard NAS Fallon where it relocated in 1996.


In their down time, we want our Navy Pilots to be comfortable, so Nevada Yamas Controls is partnering with Preferred Construction Company and will soon be mobilizing to upgrade the room controls of the Bachelor’s Housing Units at NAS Fallon. This large project involves over eight hundred housing units in ten buildings, upgrading the controls in each unit from pneumatic, electric, and legacy DDC to SmartStruxure Lite by Schneider Electric.


Installed in the housing units will be Schneider’s SE7000 Series room controllers, which will control heating and cooling based on sequenced actuation of motion sensors and door and wall sensors to determine occupancy. These devices will communicate in ZigBee mesh networks with MPM routers which will serve BACnet to the base’s existing AX control system via new JACE controllers.


NASF has a dedicated Ethernet control network, but it’s not currently in the Bachelor’s Housing Unit buildings. So, our Project Manager and his team will be employing Solectek 5 GHz Ethernet transceivers to complete the connection from the JACE controllers to the base’s server.


We’re looking forward to employing this combination of solutions to help the US Navy save energy and money while increasing the comfort of the men and women who train at this facility.


We at Utah, Idaho and Nevada Yamas Controls express our gratitude to the men and women of Naval Air Station Fallon for their service in keeping the skies safe!

On May 24, 2016, a ground breaking ceremony was held in Kaysville, Utah for the newest high school in the Davis School District. The name, colors, and mascot will all be selected some time before the school begins operation in August 2018. For now, the new school is being referred to simply as High School #10.


With Viewmont, Layton and Davis High Schools each between 450 and 750 students over capacity, High School #10 will be important to more equally distribute the growing student population of Davis School District.


We at Utah Yamas Controls are proud to be working with Hogan and Associates Construction, Inc., O & M Plumbing and Heating, and Taylor Electric, Inc., in making High School #10 an innovative and efficient facility that will serve the students of Davis School District for decades to come.

The Code of Belimo Model Numbers


Those letters and numbers that make up the model number of Belimo products aren’t just random, they tell you the exact specifications of the equipment, provided you know what to look for. We can help you decipher the code and make it easier to select the right piece of equipment for your application.

For this posting we’ll be focusing on spring return and non-spring return damper actuators but we’ll be posting others soon. You can always call us at (888) 999-8824 if you have questions.

Just for fun: Do you know why the company is called Belimo? Even it’s name is a code. The company was founded in Switzerland and the name is derived from the German words Beraten, Liefern and Motieren. Those translate to Consulting, Supply and Assembly. You learn something new every day!

Now back to the model number code. The first image shows the code for spring return damper actuators.

The first set of letters deals with minimum torque and speed. If the speed is just normal it won’t have a letter assigned and you’ll only need the torque letters, the same goes for options. The numbers in the model represent power supply. Then onto control options, switches and the NEMA housing. After all the options have been selected the model # of this particular actuator is EFX24-MFT-S N4.

Belimo Model Number Spring Return

Next let’s look at Non-Spring Return.

Non Spring Return Belimo

You’ve now broken the code of Belimo damper actuators. If you have any questions about Belimo don’t hesitate to call us at (866) 999-8824 and talk to one of our product specialist. We also have a wide selection of Belimo products in our web store where you can shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
