Variable Frequency Drive Information

Saving Energy The Smart Way

Buildings consume more than 70 percent of the electricity produced in North America — and roughly half of that is used to circulate air and water. Honeywell SmartVFD HVAC, BYPASS and COMPACT variable frequency drives maximize energy savings by modulating the speed of fans and pumps. VFDs achieve these savings by operating within a building’s control system or independently through its internal PID capabilities. Additionally, Honeywell’s VFDs are loaded with labor-saving features such as startup wizards, PC programming, and an intuitive graphical interface that allows for faster, more accurate commissioning and reliable maintenance over the life of the drive.

SmartVFD HVAC- Smart Installation, Smart Commissioning and Smart Communication

The Honeywell SmartVFD HVAC meets UL and cUL standards makes installation and commissioning easy for you and energy savings easy for your customers:

Easy Communication

  • Start-up Wizards — Set the clock and tell the VFD whether you have a pump or a fan, enter nominal motor information, and you are up and running. PID and multi-pumps wizards are also built in.
  • PC Software Wizards — Commissioning, programming and troubleshooting are all a snap with the PC Software Wizards.
  • Graphic Interface — The easy-to-use keypad and interface deliver menu-driven programming and monitoring for fast, uniform commissioning. It’s also easy for the building owner or manager to learn and use, helping to reduce service calls. Every parameter has a built-in help feature to provide assistance while programming.
  • Built-In Communications — With BACnet®, N2 and Modbus built in, your customers will enjoy a lower total installed cost and reliable communications with the building management system.
  • Built-In PLC — PC based tools eliminate the need for an expensive external controller.

Built-in Protection

  • DC Choke for harmonic protection.
  • Standard RFI Filter — Ensures that EMC/RFI requirements are met.
  • Bypass Options — Meet specifications and system critical applications with a comprehensive bypass offering.

Smart Software

  • Real-Time Clock — Battery included.
  • Fire Mode to improve fire safety in the building.
  • Motor Switch Ride-Through — Easy, fault-free maintenance.
  • Hand-Off-Auto (HOA) control built into the keypad.
  • Plenum rated for install flexibility.
  • 100 KA Short Circuit Current Rating (SCCR) rated.
