Product Name(s): VM01, VM01C
Product Description: The Innotech VAVMax Controller is a state of the art digital processing system designed to control VAV boxes in industrial and commercial environments. The VM01 is designed to operate on an Innotech Sub System Network managed by the IG01 Sub System Gateway, allowing the VM01 to receive time synchronisation signals and store logged data. Alternatively, the VM01 can operate as a stand-alone unit on an Innotech primary Netcomm network; however in these applications the device will not have all of its features available. The VM01 is fitted with an on-board differential pressure sensor to track and calculate changes in air velocity pressure and respond as directed in its program. The VM01 features Universal I/O channels (UIO), which combine the functions of Universal Input and Analogue Output channels into a single software programmable channel. Each UIO can be independently configured via software to have input or output functionality. The VM01 controller can be configured using the Windows® based MAXCon software. MAXCon allows the user to configure the internal processes of the VM01 controllers by placing various process blocks and interconnecting lines to design the required control algorithm.
Product Application(s): The VM01 is designed for mounting inside an environment free from moisture and dust. It offers programmable channels, enabling it to monitor and control all types of external plant and equipment. Although the VM01 is flexible, it is primarily designed for the air conditioning and building automation industry. The small size of the VM01 also gives it the advantage of being installed in small places or duct sections.
