The Cool-phases sytems are part of the Performance Components Library within the Virtual Environment. Performance components help architects and consultants deliver low maintenance, energy efficient designs within the built environment. Pre-built manufacturer assemblies can be imported to the Virtual Environment, providing a mix of geometry and thermal data as per manufacturer specification.
Using the VE Navigator for Monodraught Cool-Phase, components are imported to rooms and the pre configured Cool-Phase system is automatically created in ApacheHVAC with the room assigned.
There are three main options available to the user for Monodraught's cool-phase performance components, to suit the type of installation that would be required – Facia, Suspended Ceiling and Exposed Void.
The Cool-phase User Guide provides a step-by-step guide to modelling with Cool-phase Components, from navigating the new performance catalogue, through to the import process for the placement of the components within a building model and assigning the appropriate ApacheHVAC profiles.
