The VMBE Series includes a programmable, high efficiency motor that redefines comfort and energy savings. The VMBE motor automatically adjusts its torque and speed to maintain a preprogrammed level of constant airflow over a wide range of external static pressures. This variable speed technology offers better indoor air quality, more precise humidity control, quieter operation, consistent indoor air temperature, and lower utility bills.

High Efficiency - At full load conditions the VMBE motor is 20% more efficient than an induction motor and at constant fan speed it consumes only 60-80 watts of power compared to 400 watts for a standard induction motor.

Quiet Operation - The versatile VMBE motor quietly "ramps up" when the unit is turned on and "ramps down" when the
thermostat is satisfied, eliminating the annoying sounds of changing airflow.

Self-Regulating Constant Airflow - The VMBE motor is factory programmed to maintain a predetermined level of airflow over a wide range of external static pressures, ensuring optimum system performance and whole-house comfort. The benefits of constant fan operation are:
  • Consistent air distribution (and temperature) throughout the home
  • Better indoor air quality (further improved with the addition of high efficiency filter) - This allows the air to be filtered without excessive drafts and without sacrificing efficiency.
  • Better humidity control - The VMBE is designed to extract much more moisture from the air than a conventional system by slowing the airflow over the cooling coil. The result is an improved summer comfort level at higher indoor temperatures.
Additional Standard Features:
  • Factory installed electric heat (0-20kW)
  • Upflow / horizontal drain pans
  • Higher efficiency pleated filter
  • Factory installed service switch (above 10kW)
  • Primary and secondary drain connections on cooling coil
  • Fully Insulated cabinet
  • Compatible with most properly sized and installed zone control systems. Contact the zone control manufacturer.
  • 208/240V motor, 24V controls
  • High capacity 4-row cooling coil
  • Optional 277V model available. Contact factory.
