Control technology for ebm-papst GreenTech EC fans

Increasing market demands have induced us to exploit the whole range of possibilities offered by 100% controllable GreenTech EC fans being installed in third party products. The combination of GreenTech EC motor and external control technology is based on fans with a power input of 500 watts or more which are equipped with a MODBUS.

"Approved controller" - the sign of full compatibility

Approved controller

In order to give you the necessary reliability when choosing components, we have entered partnerships with selected control technology manufacturers. Naturally, combinations of GreenTech EC fans and external control technology are tested and examined, and this is documented for you with the "Approved controller" label.

"Approved controller" products are already available for GreenTech EC fans from the following manufacturers:

Arthur Grillo: Differential Pressure Controller DPC200

VIPA: Automation solutions and control engineering

Comprehensive system solutions for all control requirements.

WAGO: Scalable control technology

The requirements for an automation solution varies greatly with the type of machine, system or equipment that must be automated. The number of inputs and outputs and the required speed are the main parameters. Ultimately, the interfaces and fieldbus systems used also play an important role. The controllers of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM are modular and independent of the fieldbus. With an extensive portfolio of I/O modules, they always offer the right solution.
