  • Features

    A complete HVAC building automation solution

    The HVAC Drive H300 is optimised for fan/compressor control in HVAC applications and has all the features you would expect from a dedicated HVAC drive and more:

    Building Automation Systems

    Seamless integration with Building Automation Systems with the following onboard communications supported:

    1. BACnet, conformance tested to guarantee reliable operation
    2. Modbus RTU communications
     
    Custom Software
    • Flexibility without a Building Management System with optional modules for running custom application software.
     
    Fire mode
    • The HVAC Drive H300 has onboard Fire mode which allows the drive to continue running uninterrupted in the event of a fire. It can allow the safe extraction of smoke while the drive’s other functions are maintained.
     
    High Efficiency Operating Modes
    • Quiet operation with Rotor Flux Control modes, high switching frequencies (up to 16 kHz).
    • Intelligent 10 speed drive cooling fan with minimum noise operation.
     
    Conformal Coated PCB
    • High product reliability with conformally coated PCBs as standard.
     
    Compact Dimensions
    • Among the most compact VFD in its class at every frame size, maximizing mounting flexibility.
     
    Dual PID
    • Built-in dual process PID loops that can operate independently or be combined to provide more complex functionality.
     
    Energy Efficiency as Standard
    • Exponential energy savings through fitting a Control Techniques Variable Frequency Drive into the application.
    • HVAC Drive H300 provides high energy efficiency, up to 98% where very little energy is lost in the conversion.
    • Motor control of super high efficiency sensor-less permanent magnet motors.
    • Dynamic Volts/Hertz energy optimization minimises power loss under low load conditions.
     
    Energy Savings

    Energy savings features promise a low total cost ownership:

    1. Sleep, Wake & VFD standby modes ensure minimal wasted energy
    2. Onboard power metering includes a cost per kWh function to track operating costs
    3. Energy savings verified with CT Energy Efficiency Calculator tool
     
    Thermistor Monitoring
    • A temperature sensor input is available which can directly provide an analogue input without a transducer for control of fans and compressors. 
     
    Extreme Operating Conditions
    • Operate in conditions from -20°C to 55°C* (40 °C as standard, above with derating).
     
    Extended Connectivity
    • Extended connectivity with SI option modules (POWERLINK, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, EtherCAT, PROFINET, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet and CANopen).
     
    Quick Commissioning

    HVAC Drive H300 portable memory devices:

    • A Smartcard enables simplified maintenance and commissioning without a PC, storing parameters and system upgrades.
  • Free Standing Drive Range - COMING SOON
    Ready to use pre-engineered high power drives

    Highly efficient pre-engineered motor control system

    Control Techniques’ Free Standing Drive optimises motor energy efficiency and comes ready to use, pre-assembled in its own industry-standard cabinet with all necessary system components included. The HVAC Drive H300's Free Standing Drive variant complements and extends the product range, while having all of the core product’s capabilities and features.

    Light weight, but no light weight!

    The H300 is also available with Control Techniques’ largest frame, which not only offers 500 kW of power in a single module, but at 130 kg is up to 60 kg lighter than competitor drives. Its small footprint and pre-engineered accessories make it easy to install or retrofit in industry-standard cubicles.

    No extra engineering required

    The Free Standing Drive fits a small footprint, and it’s easy to integrate with common cubicles, including as standard: load switch, fuses, fan, line and sharing chokes and cabling. The cabinet can also come with a doormounted HMI with Real-Time Clock, for easy set-up and maintenance.

    Thanks to the dedicated online configurator, getting a quote and ordering is as simple as can be. Even more, we can ship your Free Standing Drive to you at very short lead times, saving weeks on typical industry standards.
