The new touch-screen Fan-Commander ™ control station from Rite-Hite Fans
controls the operation of up to 18 high volume/low speed (HVLS) Revolution® fan or Revolution® SP fan models. With the Fan-Commander, users can optimize the year-round performance of strategically located Revolution HVLS fans throughout a single facility, maximizing the energy savings and comfort they deliver.
The intuitive and easily programmed Fan-Commander adjusts the speed of Revolution HVLS fans to match winter and summer conditions. During winter, the correct fan speed produces even temperatures from floor to ceiling for proven energy savings and increased employee comfort. An automatic and accurately controlled fan speed in summer results in a cool breeze when it’s needed most.
To further the advantages of multiple Revolution HVLS fans, the Fan-Commander prevents unauthorized employees from adjusting fan speeds. The control station also contributes to operational efficiency since it eliminates the need to visit multiple fan locations to make adjustments. Additional benefits of the Fan-Commander include the ability to:
- Control fan speeds and use simultaneously;
- Schedule fans to operate only when needed to save energy;
- Customize each fan name to specific building locations; and
- Immediately visualize the settings and status of each fan.
The Fan-Commander can also be networked with building control systems so users can coordinate the operation of the fans with other building functions. An internal battery retains custom settings in the event of a power failure. Control boxes used to relay signals to and from the main control station can be mounted up high on walls or columns to avoid damage and minimize the cost of wiring.
