The FCHG is provided as standard with the
energy efficient Electronically commutated
motor. The ECM provides several benefits
over conventional Permanent Split Capacitor
The standard ECM motor offers significant
energy savings due to it’s ultra efficient
brushless design. Power losses due to
magnetic, thermal and frictional effects are
dramatically reduced over conventional PSC
motors with efficiency gains of 20-30%.
Full range speed control allows the fan
speed to be optimized at the setting which
meets the room load and acoustic design
goals. When coupled with electronic or DDC
controls ECM motors can also be operated
to provide variable volume of both cooling
and heating fan flows, contributing to further
energy savings and enhanced comfort. The
fan speed can be remotely adjusted and
monitored from a BAS system providing
further opportunity for energy savings.
Manual fan speed adjustment is enhanced
with the optional Price Deluxe ECM speed
controller which features an LED display
and push button control.
The programming capability of the ECM
motor allows factory setting of the units fan
flow. Due to the factory calibrated set points
entered in the Price EnersaveTM program, fan
flow remains constant regardless of external
pressure. Constant flow programming
ensures the fan flow will be maintained
even as the filter resistance increases due
to dust buildup.
Motor life of the ECM motor is extended due
to it’s low operating temperature and ball
bearing design. The ball bearings require
no lubrication and direct drive design
eliminates belt adjustment or replacement.
The low operating temperature of the ECM
also reduces the system cooling load.
The FCHG can be factory supplied with
Price electronic or DDC controls for
stand alone or networked applications
when ordered with the optional BACnet
expansion module. A variety of factory
programmed and verified sequences of
operation are available including heat/cool
changeover, VAV fan operation, Discharge
Air Temperature control and night setback.
Thermostat options include dial adjustment,
LCD display and motion sensor. The Price PIC
Fan Coil Controller can also accommodate
flow sensing and control of an optional
fresh air inlet damper. Factory mounting,
programming and setup ensure a fully
functional unit is delivered to the jobsite.
