New template for Ubbink Air Excellent products

Trimble MEPcontent created a revised template for the Ubbink-Centrotherm Group, Air Excellent products. This template is in cooperation with the manufacturer Ubbink and companies who are working with the Ubbink Air Excellent products revised, updated, and extended with new products and features.
With this revised template Ubbink offers a better user experience and easier use of their Air Excellent products in your design.
The new and revised topics are:

    The new template is having now separate supply and return (exhaust) systems. This makes it easier to use the calculation methods of Revit.

    New flexible ventilation ducts have been added, it is now possible to design an air distribution system that has the actual pattern as in practice. By choice of the engineer, he can still use the old method of straight flexible air ducts.

    All components have been updated with the connector position where the ductwork enters the meets the length of the sock. With this revision it is easier to make a prefabricated installation with the correct dimensions.

    The height (offset) positions of the valve adapters are made equal to the position adapters on the distribution boxes. They will help to connect the ducts to each other.
    Horizontal and vertical split for the ducts is set in the auto routing preferences. With this revision it is easier for the engineer to design a system to another floor.

    Calculations of flow rate will be more correct because there are no lost airflows through thru the distribution box.

    Trimble has built this template according to the new platform. This feature makes it more flexible to create and publish new or existing localizations (countries or languages where Ubbink deliver the Air Excellent products).

    All descriptions (technical and or extra information) in the accessories are delivered by Ubbink and is equal to their system. With this new data there is no misconception in ordering or communication with Ubbink. All extra documentation and texts correspond to the officially published texts of the Ubbink-Centrotherm Group.

    The improvements have been evaluated by Ubbink in cooperation with external companies approached by Ubbink.

Trimble will publish first the updated Ubbink-NL Air Excellent template. For questions, please contact Ubbink (, about the products, or the Trimble Helpdesk when using the Template.

Le Valetis, terminal de ventilation compact haute performance de Ubbink pour extraction de VMC simple et double-flux

Afin de répondre aux besoins actuels du marché de la construction neuve, Ubbink propose un nouveau terminal de ventilation haute performance pour VMC simple et double flux. Plus compact, plus performant, plus esthétique, plus polyvalent ... Dès maintenant aussi disponible comme fichier BIM sur la bibliothèque MEPcontent !

Un terminal haute performance
Le Valetis contribue à améliorer la performance des systèmes raccordés (VMC simple et double-flux, chauffe-eau thermodynamique) en limitant très fortement les pertes de charge du réseau de rejet.

Moins de pertes de charge
Le terminal Valetis génère très peu de pertes de charge permettant ainsi d’optimiser les performances du réseau de ventilation (les efforts demandés au moteur de la VMC pour extraire l’air sont moindres et le matériel est préservé dans le temps) et de maximiser la conformité lors du contrôle du réseau en fin de chantier (RE 2020) tout en compensant d’éventuelles problématiques au sein du réseau (écrasement de conduit…)

Plus polyvalent
Le terminal est équipé d’une Bavette Ubiflex® grande dimension (600 x 600 mm) permettant de s’adapter facilement aux toits avec des tuiles fortement galbées (type G3 ou tuiles canal) et ainsi assurer une étanchéité parfaite.

Une esthétique retravaillée
Son design innovant permet de limiter les phénomènes de salissures sur le toit dues à l’extraction de hotte ou VMC (tuiles ou ardoises connexes tachées).

En effet, grâce à sa conception, l’air est extrait de manière à ne pas être rejeté au contact direct des tuiles/ardoises connexes, permettant ainsi de conserver l’esthétique naturelle du toit.

Conforme à la réglementation
Le Valetis maximise la conformité du réseau lors du contrôle des débits à réception dans le cadre de la RE2020. Il est testé selon la dernière norme en vigueur (EN 13141-5 2020) et évalué par le laboratoire indépendant CETIAT certifié COFRAC. Il est conforme au DTU 68.3. Le terminal + réseau de rejet génère uniquement 10.3 Pa (pression totale) pour 200 m3/h alors que le DTU 68.3 exige < 25 Pa.

Carisma Whisper by Sabiana

The Carisma Whisper fan coil unit combines a beautiful design and a reduced overall depth with particularly interesting performance in terms of sound level and energy consumption.

Carisma Whisper is proposed in the MV wall-mounted version and in the IV built-in version; the MV version has a very reduced depth of 126 mm with a modern aesthetic that integrates very well with the furnishings of any type of home, maintaining excellent performance in terms of noise and consumption.

Carisma Whisper is available in 5 sizes and 2 versions (wall-mounted and built in), each equipped with a 2-row heat exchange coil. The Carisma Whisper series is equipped with a brushless BLAC (brushless) and sensorless (sensorless) permanent magnet electronic synchronous motor controlled by an inverter board designed and developed in Italy. The air flow rate can be varied continuously through a 1-10 V signal. High efficiency even at low number of revolutions allows a great reduction in electricity consumption with absorption values, in the most frequent conditions of use, not exceeding 5 Watts.

The sound levels are particularly low in all operating conditions, without any resonance phenomenon at any frequency.

A basic command and an advanced command with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi operation, in addition to the possibility of management via APP, make this fan coil the ideal solution for the air conditioning of any residential environment.
