Operating conditions

Operating conditions, VEX100 with crossflow heat exchanger

Ecodesign Directive

In certain capacity ranges, VEX100 with crossflow heat exchanger does not meet the demands of the Ecodesign Directive, as shown in the capacity diagram.

VEX100 is suitable for tasks not covered by the Ecodesign Directive and where there is no need for such a high efficiency rating. For instance, for ventilating kitchens, bakeries, etc., where there is typically a surplus of heat but also a requirement for pre-heated supply air to the location.

Capacity ranges

Capacity, VEX100

Below illustrates which capacity ranges individual VEX sizes cover. To calculate the actual capacity data, use our product selection programs.


Sound level

VEX100, extremely quiet air handling units

The VEX units in the VEX100 series are extremely quiet, with a far lower sound level than similar products on the market.

For exact sound data, see our calculation programs.



The compact units are designed in accordance with German hygiene standard VDI6022, which ensures that units are accessible for service and that formation of mould or other bacteria that could negatively impact air quality is prevented. Read more about this standard under certificates at the bottom of the page.



Cabinets are made from Aluzinc® AZ185 class C4 in accordance with EN/ISO 12944-2 and insulated with 50 mm mineral wool. This results in low noise emissions to the surrounding environment/installation room.

The panel design minimises the formation of thermal bridges in the unit.

Motor sections


The motor sections are mounted in vibration dampers, which reduces noise in the ducts and eliminates the need to fit flexible connections between the unit and the duct system.

The motor sections can be extracted for easier servicing.

The motors are of type EC and are extremely efficient. They comply with the requirements of the Ecodesign Directive.

Fan impeller


EXstream performance.

The units are equipped with EXHAUSTO EXstream impellers, one of the leading air fan impellers on the market in terms of low energy consumption and low sound emissions.

Connection box


VEX100 Mainboard

The easily accessible connection box with built-in isolator switch and control fuses ensures easy access for connection and adjustment. 

Panel filters


Panel filters are easy to replace and can be ordered as filter class Coarse 85% (M5) or ePM1 55% (F7) in acc. with ISO 16890.


Heating coil - water or electric 

 VEX100 varmeflade The VEX100 range is supplied with an integrated heating coil, heated either by water or electricity

Mounting base


VEX170 only:

A mounting base with adjustable feet is supplied as standard, with base height of 
130 - 160 mm.


The design of the units has placed particular focus on smooth airflow through the unit in order to achieve the lowest possible pressure loss. 

Cross-flow heat exchanger 


Cross-flow heat exchanger in aluminium with moderate pressure drop and high temperature efficiency. The crossflow heat exchanger ensures full separation of air channels, preventing transfer of odours or pollutants to the supply air.

The crossflow heat exchanger makes the unit suitable for process ventilation, though not in a corrosive environment.

EC motors 

EC-motor_MC The combination of modern EC motors and the EXHAUSTO motor controller delivers extremely low energy consumption and with the EXstream impeller, a high output is achieved.

Energy labelling 

An energy label that states the energy class of the unit in relation to defined operating conditions is available via our product calculation programs.



EXHAUSTO puts great emphasis on providing accurate data. So we use a third party to measure and check our data.

Eurovent certification

All data provided with the VEX100/VEX100CF/VEX200/VEX300 model has been measured.

The units have completed a major test programme in our development department and all of the capacity, efficiency and sound data is collected via testing and in real operating situations.

In accordance with EN1886 and EN13053, Eurovent has tested and certified that EXHAUSTO VEX units meet the following requirements and classes:
Unit’s stiffness:
Air tightness class at -400 Pa:
Air tightness class at +700 Pa:
Filter bypass leakage:
Insulation class:
Thermal bridge class:

L1 (M)
L1 (M)
T2 (M), U1≤1,0
TB3 (M)

This means that a third party has checked that the data that our product calculation program produces complies with the real performance of the unit. Eurovent checks the data by selecting a unit at random and testing that unit at their own facility. If our stated data complies with the Eurovent's test results, we retain our certification. This guarantees the customer that our data is valid.

VDI 6022 - German hygiene standard

EXHAUSTO has designed its units in accordance with the German hygiene standard VDI 6022.

VDI 6022 requirements
The unit's design must make cleaning easy. There may not be areas that cannot physically be cleaned and voids that are inaccessible must be sealed. Plates must be deburred to ensure edges are smooth and corners must be rounded to avoid the risk of injury when cleaning.

In addition,the condensation tray must decline to the outlet, so that water cannot remain in the unit. It is important that the condensation outlet is connected to the drainage system on a horizontal surface.

All non-metallic materials (e.g. seals, filters), are tested to show that they do not promote growth of mould spores and bacteria.

Because the unit is designed in accordance with VDI 6022, it is both more hygienic and easier to clean.

Ecodesign data

You will find links to Ecodesign data for the individual VEX sizes under the product name and in the Download section, where we have located Ecodesign data under EU/ECO declarations.


We would point out that the values stated in the declarations have been calculated for a specific operating point.

If a different operating point is desired, we refer to our calculation programs - here you can see whether the desired unit meets the requirements for your operating point and you will find the associated Ecodesign data.

SPLIT version

VEX100 is available as a split version.

With some projects, limited space means that internal transport of the air handling unit is difficult or impossible. This is why the VEX100 is available as a split version. It means that the air handling unit can be assembled and tested at the factory as normal – just without sealant. The air handling unit can therefore be easily taken apart at the installation site, transported as single sections, assembled, sealed and commissioned.

The table below shows the dimensions of the largest section (crossflow heat exchanger) and largest cabinet section, so that it can easily be determined whether there is sufficient space to allow internal transport.

Outdoor installation 

VEX240 med tag

The cabinet is insulated with 50 mm mineral wool and therefore well-suited for outdoor installation.

For outdoor installation, the air handling unit will be delivered with a roof which allows cables to be routed out from under the roof on both sides, as well as the rear of the air handling unit.

We recommend that air handling units which are installed outdoors, are secured further as described in the Outdoor-manual.
