Fantech expands its extensive product range


Fantech, Australian designers and manufacturers of fans and ventilation equipment, now provides the high quality Vacon range of drives throughout Australasia.

Fantech‘s major projects co-ordinator Peter Cotterell says Vacon has a reputation for manufacturing high quality AC drives that are well sought after by the HVAC industry.

“AC drives are definitely the way of the future,” he said.

“The technology enhances motor performance, with lower starting currents and reduced running costs contributing to savings on energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint.

“And when it comes to choosing an AC drive, Vacon are among the best in the world. Furthermore, the technical support offered by Vacon’s premium partner CMG, is second to none.”

Mr Cotterell says one of the unique features of Vacon drive units is their modular design.

The drives are available with 240, 415 and 690V options, a choice of air-cooled or purpose designed liquid-cooled drives and have the capacity for several I/O cards and field-installable conversion kits.

“The beauty of Vacon drives is that they are quick and convenient to install, connect and commission and can be easily mixed and matched to suit individual client needs,” he said.

Fantech can also provide a range of accessories including keypad door mount kits, through-mount adapters for panels, brake resistors, and various filters and varnished circuit boards for corrosive environments.
