MacroAir Direct-Drive Gearless Motor is Quiet, Powerful and Energy-Efficient

Direct-Drive Motor

The AirVolution-D’s patented direct-drive motor eliminates the need for a gearbox, increasing sustained torque, power efficiency, and durability while decreasing noise and weight, even when compared to other gearless direct-drive motors:

  • Only two moving parts; requires zero maintenance
  • Zero liquids, no oils that could leak from a gearbox
  • Rated for indoor and outdoor environments
MacroAir Anodized Aluminum Airfoil Blades Move Air and Prevent Rusting

Anodized Aluminum Airfoils

The AirVolution-D’s NASA inspired airfoils generate more airflow over the entire speed range. They are extruded aluminum, utilizing a open-ended airfoil caps to pull in air and cool the motor and electronics.

  • Require less energy for optimum airflow
  • Anodized finish resists dust accumulation and oxidation
  • 6 blades create optimal spacing for maximum volume, velocity, and air delivery to the space below
MacroAir Onboard Motor Control Adapts to Voltages Automatically

Onboard Motor Control

The AirVolution-D’s onboard motor controller has broad range power input, adapting to voltages automatically

  • Instantly adapts to moderate voltage dips and spikes without interruption
  • Rated to operate at up to 60ºC or 140ºF
Save 30% on Cooling or 20% on Heating with MacroAir Fans

Year-round Energy Savings

AirVolution-D lowers air conditioning costs dramatically. A MacroAir fan running with your HVAC system can save up to 30% on cooling costs. You can also run fans in reverse in Winter to push warm air to the ground without a warm draft, saving up to 20% on your heating bill.

MacroAir AirVolution-D Fans Have the Best Warranty, By Far

The Best Warranty, By Far

AirVolution-D’s 50,000 operating hour warranty is the best in the industry, by far. 50,000 running hours equates to 24 years based upon 8 hour per day, 40 hour per week operation. Also, factory installation is not required, so you can self-install or use an installer of choice and get the same great warranty.

MacroAir Fans Can be Automated by Tying Them into Building Management Systems or Using a Controller 10/20/30

Automation-Ready

AirVolution-D can tie into Building Management Systems (BMS) using AirLynk, allowing you to control your fans from your BMS and eliminate multiple control systems. You can also use a MacroAir Controller 10/20/30 to schedule fans to run at certain times of day, and even integrate this Controller with AirEffect temperature control system to automatically run fans based upon environmental temperature or humidity.

MacroAir Provides Multiple Control Options

Multiple Control Options

From the standard Digital Remote to the Controller 30, you can control up to 30 fans from one central location. Controllers 10, 20 or 30 can be used to schedule fans for seamless operation and tie into the optional AirEffect system to monitor environmental temperature and humidity to run fans based upon these factors.

MacroAir Fans Run in Reverse to Push Hot or Warm Air Down to the Floor During Winter

Reverse Functionality

Most other big fan manufacturers only have forward operation, blowing air down to the floor. However, in Winter months when it is cold and heat is trapped at the ceiling, reversing fan operation moves air up to the ceiling, down the walls and to the floor. The biggest benefit? Avoid an uncomfortable warm breeze while still creating a more uniform temperature from floor to ceiling.

MacroAir Fans Patented Safety Retainer Link System

Patented Safety System

Safety is a top priority. The hub, which is where the fan airfoils attach, is a high stress area. MacroAir’s patented Interlocking Safety System reinforces the connection between the fan unit and its airfoils. This assures the security of the fan blades to the hub even in extreme conditions.

MacroAir Controller 4

Controller 4

MacroAir’s Controller 4 is a simple and intuitive controller that gives you the capability to run one or multiple MacroAir fans (up to 4) at the same speed and direction, all from one point. With the addition of a temperature sensor (optional) Controller 4 can automate your fans, increasing and decreasing fan speed according to the specific temperature you set through the controller. With a 3-year warranty, Controller 4 is the most reliable and dependable way to control a small group of MacroAir fans.

MacroAir AirEffect Temperature Control System

AirEffect Temperature Control

AirEffect is an optional control system that senses and automatically maintains a desired room temperature. AirEffect gauges the heat index by measuring the temperature and humidity at the ceiling and floor. To achieve the desired temperature, AirEffect takes the heat index and calculates each fan’s ideal operating speed and direction and runs the fans accordingly. Simply setup AirEffect with the desired temperature range and enjoy a consistently comfortable environment.
