Intellitrac® Controls

The system continuously operates at a low level to ensure that the home is correctly ventilated, providing all year round good indoor air quality. Incorporated within the MEV Spider is the unique Intellitrac® Technology as standard, which constantly monitors the humidity level, meaning no user intervention is required.

As humidity rises and falls, the motor speed rises and falls in direct correlation. This controls condensation quietly and efficiently, reducing the periods of time when the system operates on maximum speed, saving energy.

Question & Answers

How many fans does it have?

The spider MEV unit has one fan that will cope with up to 9 inputs (subject to design).

Where can I mount the unit?

The unit can be fitted in a loft/services cupboard/ and on any angle.

What type of ducting do I fit?

The ducting type will depend on the installation and will need to consist of mainly rigid. – any ducting in unheated areas will need to be insulated. For specific ducting types refer to the Domestic Ventilation Compliance Guide.

How do I commission the unit?

To achieve specific flow rates the spider unit will need to be set using an anemometer to balance the system correctly. For an initial setup the unit does not have to run as fast as an on/fan – set on a gentle trickle rate then add 20% for boost as an approx. guide.

How can I control the unit?

There are 2 models available – the hard wired unit can be controlled by a zero volts (make/break) contact. Alternatively a wireless boost control is available which eliminated the need for additional wiring. Additional wireless boost controls are available. both units have the facility to accept switched live inputs for a ceiling switch or PIR sensor – these must be installed by a qualified electrician.

Can I use it with a roof tile vent?

Roof tiles vents must be a suitable ventilation terminal capable of coping with the airflow required. Roof tile vents must be designed for mechanical ventilation and not cause a high system resistance.

Why is the unit noisy?

To ensure minimal noise the unit should be installed as per the installation guide using the correct size ducting type (insulated in unheated areas), mounted with the isolating pads provided and following the designs When using rigid ducting there must be a short length of flexible ducting fitted between the rigid duct and the units spigots.

Do I still need a cooker hood?

If installed and balanced correctly the spider unit can cover the whole house extract ventilation required (subject to design). A cooker hood can be omitted from the kitchen or used in addition to the MEV Spider. A cooker hood cannot be used instead of an extract point from the MEV Spider in the kitchen.
