Aura-T®

Aura-T® is a simple touchscreen controller for programming, set-up and occupancy control from the Beam Axco C130 & C170. Connected to the MVHR System via a wired connection, typically located in a central location, it allows straightforward operation of ventilation speeds at the touch of a screen. 

  • Digital 4 speed switch

  • 7 day programmable timer

  • Filter change indicator

  • Internal MVHR humidity sensor

  • Boost inhibit function

  • Kitchen and wet rooms overrun timer

  • Real time status and operating mode 

 

Auralite®

Auralite® is a low voltage hard wired remote LED ventilation system status indicator, designed to fit a standard UK patress or recessed backbox.  The indicator is for use with Axco C Range models C50, C75 and C100 and displays:

  • Normal Running - the system is running at continous speed (normal mode) or the unit is running at setback speed if this light is flashing 

  • Frost Protection - the unit is in automatic frost protection mode

  • Filter Change - the filters require changing 

  • Boost Speed - the system is running in boost speed if this light is flashing 

  • Summer - the is in summer bypass mode

  • Fault - there is a fault with the system and the installer should be contacted 

 

Features and Benefits

  • Meets guidlines for owner accessability 

  • Increase owner awareness of system operation 

  • Can be sited remotely from unit in an easy to access location 

  • Discreet design 

  • Fits a standard UK patress box 

  • Compatible with Titon HRV units  

One of the most important aspects of a well planned, low energy MVHR system is the ducting type, design and the quality of installation.

The best practice is to use larger diameter, 125mm diameter branch lines and up to 250mm diameter main lines, which can carry the necessary high volumes of air at low velocity (depending on size of system).

Rigid, large diameter ducting is the preferred choice to provide a smooth flow of air, causing less noise (from both fans and air turbulence) and costs less to run. Foil backed insulated ducting in a cold space is essential to retain high heat efficiency.

Careful consideration to the design and choice of installation materials ensures your MVHR system delivers the correct ventilation rate and heat efficiency to your home.

Our modern Supply & Extract Valves are manufacture in high quality steel and are designed to not produce down draft, ensuring a comfortable indoor climate.
