Sabiana Carisma



The Sabiana Carisma extensive fan coil range includes wall and ceiling mounted units, exposed or concealed with either tangential or centrifugal fan options, delivering one of the most versatile ranges of fan coils on the market today. Units covers are made from strong plastic lateral corners and galvanized frontal steel sheet. The plastic top grid has fixed louvres and is reversible in order to distribute the air in two different directions.

Sabiana SkyStar



The SkyStar ECM series uses an innovative brushless electric motor controlled by an inverter card that varies the air flow continuously by means of a 1-10 V signal generated by Sabiana controls (versicontrollersIR) or by independent contollers (version SK-ECM). The extreme efficiency, also at a low speed, makes possible a great reduction in electric consumption (more than 75% less in comparison to a traditional motor) with absorption values, under normal operating conditions, that are no greater than 10 Watt in the entire range.
