Energy Reduction & Acoustic Comfort with Sabiana Fan Coil Units

"Offering BIM files for our products is no longer a choice, it's a must" according to Luca Binaghi, Commercial Director for Sabiana. "BIM is an essential part of the workflow of our customers nowadays. Offering accurate 3D content, equipped with correct technical and product information is very important to us. MEPcontent is an important partner in our BIM strategy, offering both a BIM platform with a global reach and expertise when it comes to BIM for the MEP industry."

MEPcontent users can download the BIM files for Sabiana products for free from the MEPcontent platform.

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.

About Sabiana

Sabiana is an Italian company which conceives, designs and manufactures appliances for air-condition spaces where people work and live. The company builds equipment and systems to heat and cool any type of space: factories, offices, hotels, hospitals, shopping malls and houses. Always based on the most natural element in existence: water.

AIRSTAGE™ Conditioning Systems from Fujitsu

Specific content for international manufacturer Fujitsu is available in the Fujitsu BIM object library on MEPcontent. There are Revit families, dwg and ifc files available on MEPcontent for indoor and outdoor units.

Heat pumps outdoor units

Due to the inverter technology and refrigerant control technology, the EER/COP has been significantly improved. The outdoor size of the units has been reduced by optimizing of equipment. This allows for a reduction in the required installation area floor space. Installation flexibility is further ensured due to the total pipe length of 1,000m and 150m actual pipe length. From small to large buildings, any application can be supported.

Cassette type and mini Duct type indoor units

The AIRSTAGE™ indoor units were developed to be highly efficient, compact, low noise, and to have user-friendly operation. The design makes that they go well with the interior decoration and are easy to install and maintain.

E-Series Air-cooled Chilling Units from Mitsubishi Electric

New modules increased to 50 HP and 60 HP can be applied to larger capacity areas

Due to advancing global warming, there is a strong demand for central heat-pump solutions with higher performance. Mitsubishi Electric’s high-efficiency, large-capacity modular chillers can meet the requirements for installation of large-capacity heat source equipment in limited spaces. This now means there is a wider choice of units available in Cooling only, Heating Only or Heat-Pump options.

New features:

  • New 50 HP and 60 HP modules. With these new modules, the range is increased to include 50 and 60 HP each. Up to 6 units of each module can be connected in one group, so capacity can be increased from 150kW (50HP x 1) to 1080kW (60 HP × 6 units). These larger systems compliment the existing 30HP lineup as usual.

  • High energy saving performance with Eurovent Rank A efficiency. With an energy saving operation realized in both cooling and heating modes resulting in an EER of 3.19 and COP 3.29 and an overall SEER of 4.62 for the size P1500 and 4.58 for the size P1800. This is achieved by our efficient Y shaped coils and smart inverter technology.
  • Small space-saving and flexible module footprint. Large capacity systems can facilitate units being separated & spaced to tight site configurations.

  • Built-in redundancy, keeping all other modules working in the event of a problem. Each module comprises of 2 circuits each, maintaining a high degree of system security and peace of mind.

  • High-efficiency scroll compressor is equipped with inverter, so optimum operation can be realized according to the load. This reduces in-rush current and helps to stabilise the overall building power supply. Built-in rotation for even wear and load distribution.

  • Selectable piping system to save installation space and installation work. Standard piping and built-in header (-N) types are available. The optimum piping system can be selected according to the design and construction needs.

  • A range of control options from a simple PARW31MAA controller to an AE-200E/A with built-in Web Browser are available.

MEPcontent and Constructible: impossible to ignore in the MEP sector

For more than 28 years, we made it our top priority to provide you with high quality, accurate and light BIM content that you can use in your projects. Content that contains graphic and parametric product information to be used in your projects.

With the vast amount of knowledge that flows in our team of MEP specialists, comes great responsibility as well. In other words, we had to make sure that the content we provide is being used in well-informed ways, so that MEP engineers around the world can achieve maximum productivity and cost reduction through their designs.

How did we do this?

By supplying the international MEPcontent community with knowledge articles, discussion threads and actionable and accurate information about the latest developments and best practices in the MEP sector.

You might recognize this as the news sections, which you are currently viewing, or as our email newsletter, your weekly digest of the most relevant MEP and BIM news.

Today we are announcing…

… that Constructible joins forces with MEPcontent in becoming the essential dynamic duo that you need for MEP content and MEP knowledge.

What is Constructible?

Constructible is the go-to platform where stakeholders from all construction disciplines - MEP, estimating, contracts and bids, management, structural, etc. - gather to gain knowledge and actionable information about innovations in construction technology, best practices and latest industry news.

The "I" In BIM: Which Information Should Be In Your BIM Model?

BIM is all about sharing and managing information – and there’s heaps of data that can be used to enrich your models.

There are a lot of ways to describe just one object in a system: dimensions, brand, price, material type, and several other types of data. But since you want to maintain a high design speed, plus have a model that’s easy to work with, how do you decide which information should actually be in your project and to which you need to say "no"?
