Energy efficiency and cost savings are a major factor when it comes to building management systems and, to help meet these objectives, Sontay has teamed up with drive specialist Invertek to offer two new inverter ranges. Designed to provide effective electrical energy savings in HVAC fan and pump applications, the two, new, easy-to-use ID inverter drives can also be used to enhance efficiency in a variety of process operations.

The new ID-CT (standard inverters) and ID-VT (variable speed) drives feature an innovative, compact design which combines robustness, reliability and easy to use performance. Within pump applications, these new drives can help ensure an evenly distributed workload for maximum productivity. They also feature an energy saving sleep mode at low or zero flow conditions, an automatic dry shutdown facility and the capability to lower flow and maintain supply in the event of a burst pipe or leak. For air handling equipment with valves, fans and dampers, these drives provide effective control, enabling easy frequency skipping, when required, immediate broken belt warning to reduce fan downtime and an alarm override mode to keep the drive operating as long as possible if a fire breaks out in the building.

“These new inverter drives demonstrate our commitment to bringing the best possible products to market for our customers” says Sontay’s Managing Director, Trevor Palmer. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Invertek and believe we have brought another first-class, innovative and reliable range of energy-saving technologies to the HVAC marketplace”.

CatNet Systems Complying with the latest EU Directive for Mandatory Minimum Efficiency levels and the latest International Efficiency Standard IE2, ID inverters feature on the Government Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme’s (ECA) Energy Technology list which delivers tax rebates upon the installation of energy-saving equipment. These inverters can also be used to claim subsidies from utility companies. 

Both ranges incorporate an intuitive keypad control and programming can be carried out through the keypad or via a PC, PDA or smartphone. To ensure there is no loss in connection, the Inverter Drives feature an integral RFI filter and use Modbus RTU serial communications.

Sontay products and control solutions are designed to help improve building management system performance reduce energy and maintenance costs and increase occupant comfort levels. For further information on the Sontay product range, contact
