Dedicated to HVAC

There are an array of features packed into the FC 102 drives specifically for fan and pump applications. Features such as a pump cascade control option, dry pump protection, resonance monitoring and intelligent AHU functions. For a full list of pump and fan specific options, check out the brochure in our PDF section.

Stand-alone drive solution

VLT HVAC provides intelligent stand-alone functionality via several features including built-in real time clock which can be used to adjust building comfort to demands that change over the week, programmable actions, the Smart Logic Controller and 4 auto-tuned PID controllers.

Fan icon

Intelligent heat management

The unique cooling system prevents dusty and aggressive ambient airflow damaging the drive electronics. The cooling air and the internal electronics are separated, protecting electronics from contaminants.

Energy icon

Minimise energy costs

As energy becomes increasingly expensive, variable speed control of electrical motors has proven to be one of the most effective cost-reducing measures available. For example, by reducing the average speed of the motor from 100% to 80% in pumps or fans, 50% energy is saved. Reducing the average speed by 50% increases the savings to 80%.

How to find your VLT HVAC part number

The part number for your VLT HVAC inverter drive can be located on a label stuck to the top of the drive. This is the number we will need if you need us to supply a replacement drive, or the number you should use to search for prices online.
