Energy Efficiency in CIAT Vectios™, the New Generation of Rooftop Packaged Units

CIAT presents Vectios, a new generation range of rooftop packaged units offering exemplary energy efficiency. Designed to exceed the requirements for seasonal efficiency (SEER > 3.53 and SCOP >3.20), Vectios also achieves up to 37 percent energy savings, compared to Tier 1 energy efficiency requirements.

The 20 kW to 100 kW reversible heat pump operates within an outside air temperature range of -15 ºC to 48 ºC, and up to 52 ºC in the cooling-only version. CIAT designs, manufactures and supplies heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) global systems solutions that optimize energy consumption and enhance indoor air quality and comfort in buildings. CIAT is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

The Vectios range consists of autonomous, horizontal-design, rooftop units and is manufactured with high-quality, reliable components. Its external circuit is equipped with electronic axial fans for high seasonal efficiency and a low noise level, tandem scroll-type hermetic compressors, electronic expansion valves as well as components optimized for R-410A refrigerant. Multiple options for recovering energy from the extracted air are available, such as a new CIAT active recovery system and the new heat recovery wheels. To ensure improved indoor air quality, the Vectios units offer a range of filter options, fresh air management, and carbon dioxide sensors.

“For maximum seasonal efficiency, the Vectios units are equipped with the new Vectic control system”, said Natividad Molero, product manager, CIAT. “The Vectic control system is dedicated to optimizing performance at part load conditions, increasing the seasonal efficiency and operational limits in all seasons. It is available for the whole range.”

Vectios units are available in a flexible packaged system and can be adapted to a variety of customer requirements. The weight and the dimensions of the system has been optimized to fit into most with new projects or renovations. Vectios’ wide range of capacities meet the requirements of even the most specific types of application, and can handle the temperature and humidity conditions of medium and large commercial or industrial surfaces.
