ARBS 2012 Review

ARBS 2012 was the most spectacular ever for Melbourne. With record business numbers and record attendees to our stand, ebm-papst A&NZ had a successful ARBS 2012.

Innovations

Innovations at the show were:

  • EC Radical fans for air conditioning and ventilation,
  • EC plug fans for air handling and high pressure cooling
  • EC HyBlade axial fans for refrigeration and chillers
  • iQ, ESM and GreenTech EC compact fans for refrigerators and cool rooms
  • Approved Controllers and control partnerships for simple MODBUS and BACNET digital control.

Managing Director Simon Bradwell said: “Our new EC Radical plug fans have created real interest in the market. There is no product like it on the market and all our air conditioning and ventilation product manufacturers are now excited by the possibilities that this new product will give them in creating innovation and new benchmarks for MEPS product performance”, said Simon.

With greater static impeller efficiencies than ever before, the new RadiCal is being continually matched to simple handshaking control systems to allow maximum performance to be realised. The systems of digital control and the number of Approved Controllers shown by ebm-papst A&NZ were greater than ever before.

CAREL Universal Gateway

The new ebm-papst Carel Universal Gateway is a good showcase for this. This control product allows simple digital communication from most building control systems e.g. BACNET, to ebm-papst MODBUS products including RadiCal centrifugal and HyBlade axial fans.The simple benefits of this type of system allow the control to ensure that the air-movement product is doing what is expected while also monitoring the power consumption and status of the fans.

“This simple two-wire control system does not require complex installation and is the easiest way to get complete performance control”, said Simon. “Many end users are now seeing the cost and performance benefits that can be achieved using this technology, especially where detailed power control and performance monitoring is required for future reporting.”

The “Approved Controllers” and control partners section of the ARBS ebm-papst show was a great success! Find out more about our Approved Controllers here.
