Hoffman Controls 880-35 EC Head Pressure Control

$ 137.62

The Hoffman Controls 880-35 electronic head pressure controls modulate condenser fan motor speed thereby varying the air volume through the condenser. The control monitors the head pressure by sensing the sub-cooled liquid line temperature or pressure.


The Hoffman Controls 880-35 Low Ambient Head Pressure Control is designed to modulate energy efficient Electrically Commutated condenser fan Motors (ECM) in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The 880-35 control varies the speed of the condenser fan ECM motor(s) to vary the air volume through the condenser consequently regulating head pressure for proper heat rejection in low ambient temperatures. The 880-35 Head Pressure Control monitors the head pressure by sensing the sub-cooled liquid line temperature by placing a 10K sensor on the refrigerant liquid line. As the liquid line temperature drops, the motor speed will be reduced to prevent freezing of the coil. As minimum motor speed is reached, the control will cycle the motor off until the liquid line coil temperature has returned to safe operating levels. At this point, the motor will modulate back to full speed to maintain proper heat rejection. The 880-35 control provides an adjustable LOW SET point of 40°F to 80°F and an adjustable HIGH SET point of 60°F to 140°F for the ability to custom tune the control for any application.

Hoffman Controls 880-35 Applications:

Typically utilized on continuously variable speed condenser fan motors (ECM or VFD) in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Use this Model for control of single motor condenser applications when using up to two temperature sensors of liquid lines. Use the 880-90 Model for control of multiple motors, up to three temperature sensors or three pressure sensors or a 0-10 VDC input. The 880-90 also provides serial Modbus capability if the user desires to read or set any operating parameters remotely. Both models provide PWM, 0-10 VDC, and 10-0 VDC outputs for control of the variable speed fan motors.
