Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US has introduced the next generation Lossnay Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) units, the RVX. During the summer season, ERV improves comfort and efficiency by tempering outside air with heat from the exhaust air stream before supplying it to space, whereas during the winter season, the exiting cooler air reduces the temperature of the incoming air. To comply with new energy codes in states such as Washington, the RVX replaces AC fan motors of previous generations with DC fan motors. Lossnay is a total heat-exchange ventilation system that uses a low-maintenance cross-flow energy-exchange core made of a specially-treated, cellulose-fiber membrane to perform temperature and humidity exchange. Lossnay RVX helps building owners, engineers and architects meet ventilation requirements and improve indoor air quality. In addition to increasing efficiency by using DC fan motors, the RVX can use external input signals to adjust fan speeds for demand-control ventilation.
Cain White, Director, Commercial Product Management, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US said: “Ventilation is primarily about occupant health and safety, but new codes and evolving market demands mean we can’t talk ventilation without also addressing energy efficiency. We’ve updated our already energy-efficient Lossnay units to keep pace with today’s new energy codes and ventilation standards and anticipate future ones. Our customers expect reliable, high-quality equipment that can meet or exceed requirements in any application. These changes are another example of how we fulfil that responsibility.”
Lossnay units are fully compatible with existing central controllers and software including AE-200A, AE-50A and EW-50A Centralized Controllers; TG-2000A software; LonWorks interface; and BACnet interface, increasing the scope of total system management. Lossnay can also be used independently or interlocked with other systems such as CITY MULTI R2- and Y-Series systems or S-Series and P-Series indoor units.
