Extended range of air handling units now available with variable rotor speed control

2020-11-19

KOMFOVENT continues the development of its products and is proud of another important accomplishment. With the introduction of two new DR-200 and DR-700 rotor motor control boards, variable speed rotary heat exchangers are now included in the wide range of KOMFOVENT air handling units for domestic and commercial applications.

  • DR-200 rotor motor control board is available in RHP 400 and RHP 600.
  • DR-700 rotor motor control board is available in all Verso R 1000-4000 units and in RHP 800-1500 units.

This solution brings several advantages for more fluent air handling unit operation and long life.

  • The soft start of the rotor motor eliminates the typical starting noise of the ON/OFF type heat exchanger wheel, so the AHUs become more silent.
  • Slower rotor rotation, when full heat recovery is not necessary, results in less wear of the rotor components and reduced energy costs.
  • More accurate supply air temperature maintenance if compared to ON/OFF type heat exchangers.
  • Modbus control of the DR-200 and DR-700 boards enables real-time feedback from rotor motor and related components, which leads to faster failure detection and easier troubleshooting.

Consequently, KOMFOVENT air handling units become even more silent, energy-saving, precise, and durable.
