Setting up chilled beams is one of MagiCAD’s many functions that make your work easier and faster on both Revit and AutoCAD.

To define chilled beams for your HVAC system, all you need to do is select a suitable chilled beam product from one of the available manufacturers in the MagiCAD database and configure the product’s properties and connections to the existing supply and return systems.

The MagiCAD product database contains chilled beams from, for instance, the following manufacturers: Klimabyran, Stravent, Swegon AB, Systemair and Waterloo.

Air systems supply drop-down menu allows you to select the supply air source based on the available air supply systems within the project.

Cooling supply drop-down menu allows you to select the supply cooling medium source and temperature based on the available cooling supply systems within the project.

Cooling return drop-down menu allows you to select the return system for the cooling medium based on the available cooling return systems within the project.

Heating supply drop-down menu allows you to select the supply heating medium source and temperature based on the available heating supply systems within the project.

Heating return drop-down menu allows you to select the return pipe for the heating medium based on the available heating return systems within the project.
The Select product control allows you to select products either based on products already in use within the project, or based on the project-specific, predefined template dataset.

Show products from project displays all chilled beam products that have already been used in the project.

Show products from dataset displays chilled beam products that have been preselected into the project-specific template dataset.
The Product data drop-down menu allows you to select product size if the product selected above with the Select product control comes in multiple different product sizes.

Airflow rate defines the air flow rate within the system in litres per second (l/s) and in cubic meters per hour (m3/h).

Connection velocity automatically calculates and displays the velocity of the airflow in meters per second (m/s).

Connection size defines the pipe diameter for the cooling and heating pipes in millimetres (mm).

Power defines the cooling and heating power in Watts (W).

Pressure drop defines the pressure drop value for the heating and cooling systems in kilopascals (kPa).

Flow automatically calculates and displays the flow rates of the cooling and heating mediums in litres per second (l/s).

Click OK to place the chilled beam as part of your HVAC system.

The upper Product Selection control allows you to select products that have already been used in the project. To load new products into the project using the Product Browser, right-click on the product list and select Select product to project from the context menu.

The Product Data drop-down menu allows you to select product size if the product selected above with the Product Selection control comes in multiple different product sizes.

The Status drop-down menu defines an optional status for the device.

Qv defines the air flow rate within the system in litres per second (l/s) and in cubic meters per hour (m3/h).

Lock dp allows you to define a fixed pressure drop value in pascals (Pa).

 

The Cooling/heating System drop-down menus allow you to select the supply cooling and heating medium source and temperature based on the available systems within the project.

Connection size defines the pipe diameter for the cooling and heating pipes in millimetres (mm).

Power defines the cooling and heating power in Watts (W).

Pressure drop defines the pressure drop value for the heating and cooling systems in kilopascals (kPa).

Qv automatically calculates and displays the flow rates of the cooling and heating mediums in litres per second (l/s).
