Efficiency and reliability in HVAC

HVAC Drive H300 variable frequency AC drive (VFD) is the result of extensive research and builds on our vast experience of the HVAC market.

The HVAC Drive H300, part of the newly introduced Specialist series of industry-specific drive technologies, builds on our company’s five decades of drives expertise, delivering precise, dependable flow control.

The HVAC Drive H300 dimensions are among the smallest in its class at every power rating. This saves valuable building real estate, makes the drives easy to handle, and maximizes mounting flexibility. 

Introducing The Specialist HVAC Drive, from the drive specialists

 

The HVAC Drive H300 has been designed to meet the needs of:

Consultants and design engineers

  • All the necessary features to meet your building HVAC project specification requirements.
  • A highly reliable product and support service: Simply specify, install and forget.

Contractors

  • Fast, easy and secure installation, commissioning and maintenance.

Owners of commercial buildings

  • Achieves maximum building occupant comfort.
  • Optimum energy saving and value with rapid ROI.

 

Free 5 year warranty

 
  • To share our confidence in the reliability of Control Techniques, our HVAC H300 drive is eligible for Control Techniques’ extended warranty, at no extra cost.
  • It is a testament to our exceptional track record for reliability, giving you total peace of mind that your investment is protected and your site will continue to run uninterrupted.
  • Warranty terms and conditions apply.
 

The HVAC Drive H300 offers a full IP65 solution with exactly the same dedicated HVAC features & capabilities as the standard models.

IP65 provides protection from total dust ingress and low pressure water jets from any direction, making it a simple choice for harsh environments and the outdoors*. The HVAC Drive H300 is now one of the most protected drives on the market, maximizing uptime and productivity, while cutting maintenance costs.

Standard and High IP drives

The High IP drive will already be familiar to users of the HVAC Drive H300, with all the same features that make commissioning effortless. The Hand-Off-Auto keypad with the built-in real-time clock is still available, sealed, and the protective casing has been designed with easy servicing and usability in mind.

This new variant enables customers to use both standard and high IP drives for the same project, so there is no longer any headache with mixing-and-matching vendors or product feature sets, making project qualification straightforward.

Save on installation

The HVAC Drive H300 High IP drive is enclosed in a sturdy, protective yet light casing, providing a compact solution. This not only allows easy integration in harsh environments but wall mounting close to the motor reduces installation costs, through:

  • No cabinet required
  • Shorter cable lengths
  • Less labor time/cost to install drive

Free 5 year warranty

To share our confidence in the reliability of Control Techniques, the HVAC Drive H300 High IP product is also eligible for Control Techniques’ extended warranty, at no extra cost.

*Shading from direct sunlight is required
