There are 7 different models in the Carma range, the range covers flow rates from 200 to 8000 m3/h.
The CARMA range is available in 5 versions:
SEASON: Central for use in moderate climatic zone, intended for the renewal of air of buildings with energy recover, functioning summer/winter bypass, the regulation of flow spleens by potentiometer.
FIRST: Self-regulating unit for use in temperate climate areas.
SMART: Central self-regulated with electric drum kit of defrosting for compensation with outside temperature until -20°C
PREMIUM: Self-regulating unit fitted with a hot water coil or an electric coil for external temperatures down to -10°C
INFINATE: Ditto premium with an electrical pre-heating coil as standard for external temperatures down to -20°C
There are five available options of control
ECO: 1 or 2 selected adjustable airflows per fan
LOBBY: Flow rate at constant pressure
DIVA: Proportional flow rate adjustment of each fan according to CO2 level.
MAC2: Constant flow adjustment of each fan (low and high speed)
QUATTRO: CO2 sensor for airflow modulation between 2 adjustable constant airflows
LCD controller functions:
- Weekly timer

Insulation of Ductwork
We recommend you use Metal Spiral ducting and fittings due to superior strength
To provide the best performance in airtightness and durability we recommend You provide greater mechanical strength to a joint by using self-sealing fittings or a combination of Ducting Sealant and Aluminium Duct Sealing Tape
- Apply Duct sealant to the male fitting
- Push together
- Apply Aluminium Duct Sealing Tape over joint
It is important that any ducting located in a cold area (e.g. loft space) to be insulated. The insulation needs to be the equivalent of 25mm thick and have a thermal conductivity of 0.04W/(m.k) or less.
This ensures that condensation doesn’t form due to the difference in air temperature inside the duct when compared to the air temperature in the cold space.
If you don’t have a loft space there is still a need for insulated ducting on the intake and exhaust legs, as they will be carrying cold air in a warm space. The level of insulation can be achieved by wrapping PVC duct in a layer of 25mm duct wrap that has a silver foil face on a 25mm rockwool
It is also worth noting that foil wrap with air bubbles (bubble wrap) is no longer applicable in building control regulations
In addition to a choice of compatible ducting systems a full range of controls, sensors, in-line silencers, floor/wall/ceiling inlet and outlet diffusers are available to complete the installation.
