Residential Mechanical Ventilation
Altair VRX is a controlled mechanical ventilation unit with high efficiency heat recovery, for residential applications.
Altair VRX is made with a self-supporting structure in sandwich panels, 23 mm thick, insulated in polyurethane foam, designed to be installed in a vertical position.
The unit is capable of efficiently changing the air in your home, while the enthalpy heat exchanger allows to recover sensible and latent energy from the air that would otherwise be lost.
The mechanical ventilation system for residential is available with standard setting or with regulation evolved that can be combined with optional sensors air quality (SN02) and (SN80) and humidity (SN16).

Compact ventilation system
Altair VR is realized with a self-supporting sandwich panels, 23 mm thickness, insulated with polyurethane foam.
The outer part of the structure is made of sheet metal gray color plastofilmata, while the internal part of the panels is Aluzinc (material that provides high resistance to corrosion).
The interior of Altair VR is expanded polypropylene, a material that ensures a high degree of thermal insulation between the air flows.
Access to filters, fans and the heat exchanger, is facilitated by the removable front panel that allows you to operate free from any obstacle.
evolved command repositioned
And 'possible to combine the mechanical ventilation system Altair the advanced control with an elegant display that can be installed in an area convenient for the user control.
The menu is easy to use for basic configuration of the unit (manual or automatic, programming time slots, setting temperature and humidity).
The soundproofed structure of the Altair VRX units guarantees absolutely silent operation.
The maximum efficiency and quiet operation of the ventilation system is achieved thanks to a complete air distribution system with silencers output and following the recommended design criteria.
The extensive use of sound absorbing material together with the use of oversized fans, reduce the level of sound power at exceptionally low levels.
Property for Class A
The installation of a high efficiency heat recovery unit housing allows access to energy classification Class A, Thereby increasing the value and creating the conditions for it can be preserved over time.
Install a heat recovery Altair, then, in addition to ensuring healthier environment, it is also on the property investment.
In the VRX units the fans are of the electronic type with permanent magnet brushless motor with built-in latest generation inverter and in fact guarantee high performance by optimizing electricity consumption and reducing noise.

Dimensional Altair VRX
In designing the new range of heat recovery units, they were used exclusively components of absolute aeraulic and electrical quality then making Altair VR and VRX units of the landmarks in the category in terms of efficiency, reliability, accessibility, and reduced noise levels.
All heat recovery units with high efficiency, guarantee returns over 90%.
only type heat exchangers high efficiency, countercurrent, EN308 certificates.
To obtain a low noise and efficiency, the Altair unit will only use centrifugal fans with reverse blades combined with brushless EC motors with modulating signal 0: 10V. The synchronous electric motors BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) are characterized by a constant rotation speed independent of the load (or torque resistant) but linked to the frequency defined by the inverter. The synchronous brushless motor is "brushless" since current is not sent directly to the rotor but only to the stator, so there is the need to introduce sliding electrical contacts. The onboard microprocessor manages a signal (BEFM Back Electro Carrier Force) feedback that certifies whether or not the synchronous rotation of the rotor with the magnetic field and provide the possible torque corrections so that it is re-established / maintained synchronism and thus the maximum efficiency.
Wall user display
The display makes the unit is completely autonomous, allowing to perform all the operations of common use by the user (ON / OFF, the SET point setting, time programming, air replacement, etc.). It also shows the status of the unit and allows the development of advanced control parameters and configuration used during the starting phase. On display there are the temperature and humidity probes. For a correct reading of the ambient temperature and humidity, it is therefore essential that the display is placed away from drafts and heat sources, or locked in technical compartments.
High efficiency heat recovery
In a home, good ventilation is very important, but when the outside air temperature is significantly different from the inside air temperature, the exchange would involve a large amount of waste energy. The highly efficient counter-current heat recovery unit maximizes the exchange of energy between the incoming and outgoing air flows, allowing maximum energy recovery. The highly efficient heat recovery unit in polystyrene allows energy recoveries of over 90%.
ALTAIR VR AERAULIC PERFORMANCE (UNI EN 13141-7)
The unit must be ducted: it authorizes the use only within the represented curve. The declared performances are with CLEAN filters, and guaranteed ONLY with the original filters with low pressure drop.
