BVC-650 Ventilation Controller

Temperature Based Demand Control Ventilation

The MSA Bacharach® Ventilation Controller, BVC-650, is a control system specifically designed for new and retrofit Quick Serve Restaurant and Kitchen applications. The BVC-650 provides automated control over the ventilation system by adjusting exhaust and kitchen HVAC inlet air in response to the presence and level of cooking activity. Based on the temperature inside the exhaust hoods, the BVC-650 Control System maximizes kitchen ventilation energy efficiency and reduces energy waste while improving kitchen comfort. Stores are running industrial exhaust fans continuously throughout operating hours. Conditioned air is exhausted out of the building at rapid rates, resulting in increased emissions and energy use.

  • Quick and simple installation
  • Works with gas or electric kitchen appliances
  • One controller monitors up to three exhaust hoods
  • Average installed ROI is 1-2 years based on climate
  • Real-time connectivity for visibility, alarming, & optimization
