Controls Overview

Depending on the motor, Airius fans can be simply “plug & play”, adjusted by a wall-mounted speed control, tied into a building automation system or controlled by the FanCenter Manager. There are benefits to using different controls in certain situations and for a consultation in selection, contact us today!

Basic & Smart TRIAC Speed Controls

Airius fans using a shaded pole (SP) or permanent split capacitor motor (P2 or P4) can be controlled using a wall-mounted TRIAC speed control inline with the fan power circuit.

Make sure to coordinate speed control selection with the fan’s electrical requirements. Various quantities of fans can be controlled via a TRIAC speed control. Refer to individual information sheets for more details.

In addition to the standard TRIAC controllers, we offer a “smart” controller that will accept a 2-10VDC or 2-20mA control signal to change fan speed.

0-10VDC & Potentiometers

All EC designated motors (25-EC with control module, 45-EC, 60-EC or 100-EC) utilize a low voltage control circuit that can be daisy chained between fans to modulate speed as a group. This circuit can be controlled via a wall-mounted potentiometer or tied to a building automation system capable of 0-10VDC signal.

Wired or Wireless FanCenter Manager

All EL designated motors (45-EL, 60-EL or 100-EL) utilize a FanCenter Manager to monitor and control fan speed, rotation direction, 24/7/365 scheduling and error reporting. Great for high bay spaces, large arrays or multi-building control. Local and remote access can be enabled. Optional Connect software allows connectivity between BACnet/IP, Modbus TCP, or Tridium NiagaraAX framework. (Wired and wireless version available).
