Having spent years of R&D, Danfoss has released the new FC102HVAC drive with Bacnet into the Australian market.
The Australian tax office at Mt Gravatt wanted to use a variable speed drive with Bacnet capabilities as part of their upgrade to the air conditioning system throughout the building.
With the help of Finn air the mechanical contractor and Leading Edge the controls company the installation was a success.
The building has 27 Danfoss VSD’S with Bacnet connected to the Allerton BMS controller. A great feature of the new FC102 is its physical size, a smaller foot print means easier installation.
Also with its very simplistic award winning LCP display you only have to change very few parameters in the drive to activate the Bacnet communication card saving a lot more time and money to the installation.
The customer can choose to have the energy consumption divided into hours, days or weeks. The drive has an inbuilt AEO function which increases energy efficiency by 5-15% at partial load.
Danfoss has good experience in advanced drive technologies for HVAC applications.
This experience was used to optimise features in the VLT HVAC drive and make it suitable match for pumps, fans and water chillers (compressors) in buildings fitted with sophisticated HVAC solutions.
