The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) launched certification programs for variable frequency drives (VFDs) and datacom cooling (DCOM) equipment.

VFDs produce fast-rising, high frequency pulses of electrical energy to control and power motors. The equipment in the Variable Frequency Drives Certification Program is rated and tested in accordance with ANSI/AHRI Standard 1210, Performance Rating of Variable Frequency Drives.

VFDs were once considered a high-tech-only option for more elaborate HVACR systems. They have now been in the mainstream for several years and help systems provide higher efficiency levels with improved reliability.

Datacom cooling equipment is used to remove the immense heat generated in computer rooms and data centers. Equipment in the program will be rated in accordance with AHRI Standard 1360, Performance Rating of Computer and Data Processing Room Air Conditioners. AHRI is currently soliciting quotes for laboratory testing and expects to launch the program in January 2014.

Manufacturers interested in joining the VFD program should contact Rupal Choksi at AHRI. Those interested in joining the Datacom Cooling program may contact Richie Mohan at AHRI. More information is on the AHRI Certification Programs web page:

Performance data for certified products in the program will be available in the AHRI Directory of Certified Product Performance.

AHRI Vice President of Certification Bill Tritsis said the organization manages 40 performance certification programs for HVACR and water heating products.
