VPL 15 Top M2

VPL 15 Top M2 is an optimised version of VPL 15 Top, which has a better heat pump, and VPL 15 Top M2 thus has a better output and can produce an air volume of 400 m3/h. VPL 15 Top M2 is with built-in filters. 

The system extracts hot, humid air from e.g. the kitchen, bathroom and utility room, and at the same time removes dust particles, moisture and odours from the home. Furthermore, the energy from the extract air is used to heat or cool the incoming air. The system can be equipped with supplementary heating elements that can be connected to an electric or central heating system. The system will produce a comfortable incoming air temperature even in the coldest winter weather.

When you buy a VP 15 Top system, you get a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and cost savings on your heating bill.

The system is a top model for installation in a utility room, either inside a cupboard or on the wall.

VPL 15 Top M2 is an energy-efficient ventilation unit for heat recovery and cooling of homes and small commercial buildings with a ventilation requirement of up to 400 m3/h.

Heat recovery is via a heat pump that can utilise the recovered energy better than with e.g. a counterflow heat exchanger.

The heat pump has a reversible cooling circuit, which means that the unit can both heat and cool the air.

VPL 15 Top M2 is a system with compact dimensions that can be built into a cabinet with a with of 60 cm. VPL 15 Top M2 can be ordered in a left or right version.

VPL 15 Top M2 is supplied fully tested and ready for use. Fitting and commissioning must be carried out by an authorised electrician or plumber.

An EM-box allows heat recovery from the air from the range hood and thereby helps to heat the supply air. The EM-box is equipped with a steel filter which efficiently cleans the range hood air of fat particles and thereby protects the system.


Expansion PCB

The expansion PCB provides additional functions for the CTS 602 control unit.

Pollen filter - ISO ePM1 50-65%

A pollen filter class ISO ePM1 50-65% can be fitted in the unit. The pollen filter is fitted with the ISO Coarse >90% (G4) plate filter.

Installation kit

The installation kit comprises of four vibration absorbers and a water trap for the condensation outlet. The water trap can be ordered separately.

Heating cable

To protect the condensation outlet against frost, a 3 metre-long self-regulating heating cable can be ordered.


Water heating element incl. regulation (duct mounted)

The supply temperature can always be raised to the required level using a water heating element. The water heating element is designed to be built into the duct and must be connected to the primary heating supply. Supplied with two-way adjustment valve, temperature sensor and frost thermostat (not recommended for GEO / AIR).


CO2-sensor – CTS 602 control

With a CO2-sensor installed, the ventilation speed can be pre-programmed with CTS 602 to run at a higher ventilation steps when CO2 reaches high level in the extract air. CO2-level is programmable.


Max Pa capacity of standard unit, Pt,ext as a function of qv, with regard to SEL-values.

SEL-values according to EN13414-7 for a standard unit with ISO Coarse >90% (G4) filters and no heating element.

SEL-values comprise the unit´s total power comsumption incl. control.

Attention! The SEL values are measured and stated as a total value for both fans.

Sound data

Sound data for qV = 210 m3/h and Pt, ext = 100 Pa according to EN 9614-2 for surfaces and EN 5136 for ducts.

Sound output level LWA drops with falling air volume and falling back pressure.

Sound output level LpA at a given distance will depend on acoustic conditions in the place of installation.

COP (air/air)

Heat effect factor COP [-] supply air as function of outdoor temperature [°C] and volume flow qv [m3/h].

According to EN14511, extract air = 21°C.

Heat effect (supply air)

Heat effect Qc [W] as a function of qv [m3/h] and fresh air temperature [°C].

According to EN 14511, extract air = 21 °C

Supply air temperature (heating)

Supply air temperature [°C] as a function of fresh air temperature [°C] and volume flow qv [m3/h] balanced flow.

Extract air temperature = 21 [°C], 45 RH [%]

Supply air temperature (cooling)

Supply air temperature [°C] as a function of fresh air temperature [°C] and volume flow qv [m3/h] balanced flow.

Extract air temperature = 24°C
