Characterized Control Valve™ (CCV)Belimo's Characterized Control Valve™ Provides Full Control Resolution with Multi-Function Technology®

Belimo Aircontrols' (USA) extremely popular Characterized Control Valve™ (CCV) is sure to win top honors now that it uses Multi-Function Technology® (MFT) to offer full control resolution. With the increased control capability of MFT and an expanded size range, the CCV is a reliable and less expensive alternative to globe valves in many HVAC applications.

What MFT® Does for the CCV 
Belimo surpassed the capability and accuracy of any ball-type valve on the market with the original introduction of the CCV. Now, with MFT, the CCV is more precise than ever before. Here's why: For most ball-type valves, flow typically starts at about 15º and reaches maximum at 85º. However, with MFT the actuator is electronically adapted to the precise opening and closing points of the CCV so that the full 2-10V control resolution is used. The result is a linear energy output and much more stable control. Contrast this with the typical unstable control pattern of the typical ball valve and the choice is simple.
