Product comparison: Vido vs. iVector S2/Vido S2 fan convectors
At Purmo, we constantly strive to innovate indoor climate solutions and that also means product innovation within our own portfolio. That’s why we’ve recently re-examined the Vido fan convector and are happy to introduce the newest generation of fan convectors with the iVector S2/Vido S2. We gladly discuss in more detail exactly what improvements we’ve made and which interesting features are now incorporated.
Refined designWhen you place the Vido and iVector S2/Vido S2 fan convectors side by side, the first thing you’ll notice is the updated design. Whereas the Vido is a more traditional boxy fan convector, the iVector S2/Vido S2 has a slimline Italian design that allows for integration in every room and every interior style. This also shows in the more compact dimensions which allow for a space-saving installation without comprising on the high heating performance.
The Vido has a height of 595 mm, a depth of 153 mm and is available in 5 lengths between 800 and 1600 mm, while the iVector S2/Vido S2 has a height of 576 or 639 mm, depending on whether you choose the 2-pipe or the 4-pipe version, a depth of 129 mm and is available in 5 lengths ranging from 735 to 1535 mm.
Thanks to the updated product design the iVector S2/Vido S2 now allows for great interior design flexibility with various installation options. In addition to the standard on-wall mounting, it is now possible to place the iVector S2/Vido S2 on feet or to opt for an in-wall installation. Ceiling-mounted and ceiling installation are also available options. To facilitate all installation types, we also offer a full range of accessories, including metal casings and covers for in-wall installation, air flow ducts for ceiling mounting, etc.
Various installation options
In addition to the changes that are visible from the outside, the iVector S2/Vido S2 also incorporates internal updates in line with today’s needs. After all, the changing environmental conditions demand a combination of indoor comfort and energy efficiency, which in turn creates a need for heat emitters that can be controlled and react quickly and efficiently. The combination of fan support and a low thermal mass allows the newest generation of fan convectors to be better controlled in order to meet comfort requirements at all times. Additionally, advanced motor technology ensures a whisper-quiet operation so that the iVector S2/Vido S2 offers the best heat output with the lowest imaginable noise level.
Fast-reacting sustainable climate control
Moreover, the iVector S2/Vido S2 can easily be combined with a heat pump to operate at very low system temperatures for significant energy savings. If you pair it with a reversible heat pump the new fan convector is also able to both heat and cool for fast-reacting sustainable climate control all year round.
Although the controls of the Vido have always been focussed on user-friendliness, the newest generation fan convectors offers an even better user experience thanks to its intelligent control system. The iVector S2/Vido S2 has a full range of control options, including a simple on-board as well as remote control, and can be integrated with other building management systems to improve indoor climate comfort in any building.
