Airflow Developments has launched iCONsmart, its first app controlled range of modular fans. The exceponally quiet and ecient, IPX5 rated axial fan oers a simple installaon and provides users with air quality insights to help idenfy issues and ensure a healthy indoor environment


he latest addition to the Red Dot design award winning Airplow iCON range of fans, iCONsmart is a highly efficient modular residential ventilation solution with connected capabilities and full Quiet Mark approval.

Smart integrated flow sensor

The new fan features a smart integrated flow sensor that will automatically adjust to the specific installation situation. This removes the need for manual alterations to be made during commissioning to achieve the required flowrate and minimises the potential performance gap. The innovative flow sensor also ensures consistent performance throughout the life of the system as it will automatically adapt to changing wind back pressures to maintain the correct level of ventilation.

The iCONsmart is linked to the myAirflow app that provides an easy to use interface for contractors and users. During installation, the app guides the installer through the simple, intuitive setup process to configure elements such as the activation range, overrun duration and silent hours. NICEIC approved installers can also use the app for certification and notification of works – a feature unique to myAirflow. The iCONsmart range also provides access to live and historic data on the usage and performance of the fan. Through the app users can access a three-month downloadable rolling data log for time on, power usage

and humidity. This can help landlords and homeowners to deal with issues such as damp caused by the fan being used incorrectly.

Air quality data

Where the humidity module is fitted, the ‘live room health’ feature, accessible through the app, provides real time data on the indoor air quality. The easy to read graph displays the current temperature and humidity as well as a

‘health zone’ – the target conditions for a safe indoor environment.

The innovative design allows the fan to be tailored to your needs, with the addition of timer, humidity and motion sensing digital control modules. Furthermore, with IPX5 rating iCONsmart offers the installation flexibility to fit the fan in even the most demanding areas, including directly above a shower. The iCONsmart also features the unique, patented iris shutter to prevent backdrafts.

Quiet and efficient

The new range includes the iCONsmart 15, 30 and 60, which provide adjustable flow rates of 15 - 23 l/s, 30 - 47 l/s and 60 – 90 l/s respectively. The iCONsmart range offers market leading sound performance with figures as low as 23.5 dB(A) at 3 metres and all fans in the range have achieved Quiet Mark approval. The fans also deliver high levels of energy efficiency. iCONsmart 15, 30 and 60 achieve 0.14, 0.09 and 0.15 Specific Fan Power respectively, significantly below the maximum 0.5 required by Part F of the Building Regulations.

’ High efficiency heat recovery ventilation units

wegon has introduced a new range of controlled mechanical ventilation units with high efficiency heat recovery to the UK market. The new GLOBAL PX units are part of the company’s suite of products designed to deliver improved indoor air quality (IAQ) in as energy efficient a way as possible. They employ high efficiency counterflow plate heat exchangers that capture energy from the exhaust air to preheat the incoming air which is used to refresh the indoor space. There are four models in the range: Total, Global, Flat and Mural delivering ventilation capacities between 300 and 9,000m3


/hr. They include a counter flow aluminium plate exchanger, stainless steel condensate collection tray, F7 filters, modulating bypass and high efficiency (ECO) fans. Suitable for both large residential and a wide range of commercial applications, the high efficiency ventilation units from Swegon are claimed to achieve operating efficiencies as high as 96 per cent thanks to their heat recovery function,

which meets the requirements of Eurovent certification and the international EN 308 standard.

GLOBAL PX also has a ‘free cooling’ option achieved by the use of a by-pass that allows the system to capture cool air overnight to pre-cool the indoor space. All units are supplied pre-programmed in the factory so are set up to ‘plug and play’, including their electric pre- heat (anti-freeze) and water or electric post-heating options. They can also be connected to an external BMS using either modbus, KNX, Wifi, Ethernet or BACnet – the installer simply needs to connect to the external power supply and the remote control or communication interface to activate the unit.

Specialised models in the range come with all the connections mounted on the top of the unit for easier installation in places where access is restricted. BUILDING SERVICES & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER JULY 2019 33
