Vortice MVHR Environment Sensors
Automatically regulate ventilation airflow

Environment sensors are designed to detect high humidity, temperature, smoke, indoor pollutants or movement, then automatically boost the MVHR airflow to clear the air quickly. All sensors are compatible with both the Vortice HR200 and HR400M.

  • Humidity sensor - Boosts the airflow if high relative humidity detected. Ideal for the primary bathroom.
  • Smoke sensor - Boosts the airflow if cooking fumes, smoke or odours detected. Ideal for the kitchen.
  • PIR sensor - Boosts the airflow if movement detected. Various possible applications.
  • Temperature sensor - Boosts the airflow if temperature exceeds your preset limit. Good for rooms with gas/log fires or for entertaining guests.
  • Timer over-run - Adjustable over-run timer from 3-20 minutes.

Please choose which sensor/s you'd like from the list below or call 0845 833 0388 for help.

Vortice MVHR Environment Sensors
Automatically regulate ventilation airflow

Technical spec:

  • Supply power: 220-240 V
  • Frequency: 50/60Hz
  • Maximum load: 3 A
  • Operating temperature: 50 °C
  • Protection class: IP20

C HCS-HUMIDITY

Measures ambient relative humidity (R.H.), and starts the fan when the R.H. exceeds 65%. The sensor can also be wired to allow the unit to be switched on when the R.H. is below 65%, and incorporates an over-run timer (adjustable, with internal trimmer, between 3 and 20 minutes).

C PIR-MOVEMENT DETECTOR

Detects the presence of a moving body within its sensor range, and starts the fan automatically. The built-in over-run timer can be adjusted, with internal trimmer, between 3 and 20 minutes.

C TIMER

Adjustable over-run timer (adjustable, with internal trimmer, between 3 and 20 minutes).

C TEMP-TEMPERATURE

Measures ambient room temperature, and starts the fan when the temperature exceeds the preset value. Once the temperature drops below the preset value, the unit will over-run, with internal trimmer, for between 3 and 20 minutes (adjustable, with external trimmer, between 10 and 40°C).

C SMOKE

Measures the air quality, detecting the presence of cigarette smoke, odours and other pollutants, and starts the fan when the concentration of pollutants exceeds the preset value adjustable with external trimmer. The unit will also over-run, with internal trimmer, for between 3 and 20 minutes (dependent on setting).
