Rosenberg ECFanGrid Technology is Now Available with the Advantages of New “Gen 3” EC Fans


air handling unit, data center cooling, electronically-commutated fan,
fan array

Rosenberg’s Gen 3 EC motor in the ECFanGrid array provides improved airflow, efficiency and greater reliability in a space-saving design.

The ECFanGrid is a powerful air movement solution for mechanical contractors, architects, and energy management groups.

The Rosenberg ECFanGrid™ is now available with the company’s new Generation 3 EC motor. The new motor, recently named a finalist in the AHR 2020 Innovation Awards Competition, offers users 20-30% more air movement power, greater electrical efficiency and other technological advancements.

The ECFanGrid consists of a series of electronically commutated (EC) backward curved fans operating in parallel as a unit. It is a highly efficient, cost-effective alternative to single large belt-driven radial fans for air handling units.

Thanks to its modular design, the ECFanGrid can be assembled on site, whether in retrofit or new project applications. The ECFanGrid’s flat profile also creates up to 50% space savings.

Compared to old-style radial fan units, the ECFanGrid is easier to install, provides higher volume and more uniform airflow with less low-frequency noise and built-in redundancy for greater reliability.

Rosenberg’s Gen 3 EC motor makes the ECFanGrid even more reliable with advanced ModBus RTU functionality, built-in preventive maintenance and reliability features – integrated inspection LED, Electronic Quick-Change capability, IT network support – and increased failure safety.

ECFanGrid fan units can be joined in any quantity or arrangement – 1×3, 2×2, 2×3, 3×3 – multiplying the Gen 3 motor’s increased power and providing virtually limitless application flexibility. All units within the grid work together, simplifying implementation of airflow, pressure or temperature controls.

Rosenberg Gen 3 fans also come with these motor innovations:

  • 200 to 480-VAC 3-Phase Supply. Previous EC motor generations were designed for either 200-230-VAC or 380-480-VAC input power which required manufacturers to inventory both. Our new motor automatically adjusts to the actual input power across the entire range, allowing reduced inventory cost. (Airflow is always maximized at 460-Volt input voltage.)
  • 280 to 680-VDC Power Supply. Motor automatically adjusts from AC to DC-input voltage when required in data centers or in back-up battery applications.
  • Integrated visual inspection LED which displays the motors’ condition and Modbus operation status.

The ECFanGrid is a powerful retrofit solution for mechanical contractors, architects, and energy management groups. While the entire assembly can be purchased from from Rosenberg, it’s not the only way to deploy ECFanGrid technology.

A “build-your-own” ECFanGrid solution saves money and comes with factory support and access to RoVent10 software for easy configuration, technical drawings, wiring assistance, energy audit testing and air flow measurement. Many mechanical contractors can perform the necessary sheet metal fabrication and the Gen 3 EC fan products needed are available from Rosenberg’s North Carolina warehouse for immediate delivery.

Complete data on available Gen 3 backward curved fans and additional information on the ECFanGrid is available at http://www.rosenbergusa.com.

About Rosenberg

The Rosenberg family of companies is headquartered in Künzelsau, Germany and employs more than 1,500 individuals worldwide. Rosenberg fans and blowers can be found in HVAC systems, as well as industrial and portable air conditioning; in air cooling for variable frequency drives (VFD), wind power generators and power converters, solar inverters, uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), transformers, heat sinks, fan coils, telecom racks and other industrial equipment; in air handling units and fan filter units (FFU); and in railway, marine, military and avionics equipment.

Addiction Treatment Services has partnered with Phoenix Behavioral Health to offer telehealth addiction services


Telehealth Addiction Services

People facing alcohol and drug addiction often have trouble finding the right treatment for their needs and situation. The recent COVID-19 outbreak is making it harder than ever to get the help they want and need, but a new partnership is promising to change that.

Addiction Treatment Services is partnering with Phoenix to offer patients telehealth services. The service aims to provide counseling and support during this stressful time so that patients can get back on the road to recovery. Both companies keep their patients’ needs in mind from start to finish to give them the best odds of reaching their short- and long-term recovery goals, and the partnership paves the way toward the future.

About Addiction Treatment Services

Addiction Treatment Services aims to simplify the addiction treatment process. They believe that many addiction services over complicate the process and make it hard for people to remain on the path to recovery.

To make it easy for people to overcome addiction, Addiction Treatment Services works with each person and comes up with a unique solution depending on their needs and situation. The professionals help people decide where they are on their journey to recovery, and they help people choose the best treatment center for their needs even when it means sending them to another treatment center.

About Phoenix Behavioral Health

Phoenix Behavioral Health offers many of the same services as Addiction Treatment Services. Patients come here for addiction treatment in addition to mental health services. The Phoenix team provides one-on-one counseling and group sessions to empower individuals to escape from addiction and move forward with their lives, and they give hope to as many people as possible.

Meal delivery and pharmacy care are additional services people get when they opt for treatment through Phoenix. Phoenix even provides patients with telehealth services to meet their growing needs during the pandemic better.

How Telehealth Services Work

Telehealth services allow patients to get counseling and other services without going to an addiction treatment center. They pick up the phone and speak to a mental health provider about their needs, goals, and situation. Addiction therapists will often call patients daily to ensure they are staying on track with their treatment program. With telehealth services, patients get the advanced care they require without needing to leave the comfort of their homes.

Telehealth allows anyone to get advice and feedback about their situation and to keep moving in a positive direction. Telehealth services are also an excellent way for patients to seek treatment without breaking social distancing guidelines. Although telehealth is fantastic during the COVID-19 outbreak, many treatment centers will likely keep using it after the pandemic goes away.

Final Thoughts

The partnership between Addiction Treatment Services and Phoenix allows anyone to seek drug and alcohol treatment over the phone. Rather than going to a medical office to speak with a professional, they can now access the treatment services they need without making a trip into town.

Some people might need to seek in-patient care in addition to telehealth services depending on their situation. The experts at Addiction Treatment Services and Phoenix work together to help patients decide what option is right for them, making a recovery closer than they once thought possible.
