MINNEAPOLIS – January 30, 2017 –– Today at AHR Expo in Las Vegas, Daikin Applied features another industry first: its factory-installed ECM fan array in Vision® and Skyline® semi-custom air handlers. The advanced technology delivers 40 percent more efficiency (in the 3-5 HP range) in a space-saving cabinet design and quieter operation.
The ECM fan array in Vision and Skyline meets a long-standing need for smarter motors that contribute substantial energy savings per year. Available for both return and supply configurations, this fan array can accommodate up to 20 ECM fans manufactured in 40 unique arrangements to meet application requirements.
“Developments in this arena are helping building owners cut down on power consumption, yielding cost savings,” Jim Macosko, general manager, Applied Air, Daikin Applied. “As a leader in developing advanced HVAC technology, we focus on innovating to drive efficiency, space, and cost improvements that directly benefit customers. No other manufacturer delivers an air handler with a factory-installed ECM fan array option that is this affordable, can improve overall efficiency, and also reduce space needed for installation.”
With space at a premium, specifying an air handler with a tight footprint is ideal. ECM is mounted directly to its impeller for a compact design that eliminates nearly three feet of cabinet space. It is 46 percent narrower than models with direct drive motors and 52 percent narrower than models with belt-drive fans. The redesigned system has fewer and lighter-weight parts, helping to reduce challenges related to serviceability and maintenance.
