The Lo-Carbon MX Roof Range offers longer life, lower maintenance and energy savings to a variety of commercial and industrial applications. Three stylish diagonal discharge models MX10, MX20 and MX30 offer customised performances up to
5,500m3/h.

The units are moulded in tough recyclable material, fully UV stabilised and are suitable for arduous external conditions. The design features a mixed flow impeller with the motor out of the airstream and a slanted diagonal discharge pattern which creates
an upwardly spiralling discharge pattern. Suitable for horizontal mounting only (max. of 3˚ from horizontal).

Motors
At the heart of the range is the latest Lo-Carbon energy saver DC technology, eliminating the need for expensive transformer controllers to achieve customised duties. Due to the Lo-Carbon DC design, the motors run cooler, prolonging the life of the
bearings and motor lubricants. The motor is integral to the mixed flow impeller and is designed for ambient duct temperatures up to +80°C. MX motors are up to 80% efficient in converting energy into rotation, providing large energy savings throughout the speed range. They are also precisely controllable, typically offering energy savings of 40-60% compared with AC equivalents.

On Board Control
The electronics in the Lo-Carbon MX range offer the possibility of setting any working point/speed whenever required without a controller. The standard unit is ready to connect to a single phase electrical supply. However, an ideal working point can be
set either at the factory or on site to suit a system duty. If the system resistance or volume requirement changes, the fan duty can be re-programmed to meet this new performance on site. Traditional AC products are tied to 4, 6 and 8 pole models and
costly transformers – the Lo-Carbon MX is simply set up at the desired speed and, if required, can be controlled using inexpensive switches connected by four core low voltage wire. The Lo-Carbon DC system can be controlled down to much lower speeds than AC motors providing very quiet performance when required.

Maintenance
Vent-Axia Lo-Carbon MX units have a built in fault diagnosis system. An installation of several units can be interconnected using simple two core wire to form a BUS network for flexible remote maintenance monitoring tailored to meet your needs. Vent-Axia MX maintenance software is available, the installation can be used on a laptop/PC. Alternatively a hand held diagnostics/programmer is available for on site use. Lo-Carbon MX units have their own encoded signature, allowing ease of identification and full performance history access.

Vent-Axia’s Lo-Carbon MX range is designed for easy inspection access for cleaning. Four screws secure the main cover. Disconnect the internal mains plug and four bolts release the chassis holding the fan/motor assembly and the electronic module.

The Lo-Carbon MX range is constructed from fully recyclable plastics. The diagonal vortex discharge pattern throws air and sound upwards and away from the roof surface.
