    BROAN ULTRA™ Motion Sensing Fans deliver everything you wished for in a bath fan – premium ventilation to help reduce airborne pollutants, ease of installation, energy efficiency, consistent power, extremely quiet operation and multi-speed capability. Best of all, they have the ability to know when they should be in the “normal” continuous ventilation mode and when they should kick up to the high speed mode to evacuate shower humidity or odors.

    • 80 CFM quickly reduces humidity to prevent or eliminate fogged mirrors and manage moisture in bathrooms up to 70 square feet, so your vision will always be clear and your surroundings will always be comfortable
    • ULTRASense™ M, Motion Sensing Technology, offers a hands-free solution for maximum convenience. The fan will increase to maximum speed from the lower, continuous setting when motion is detected -- which is ideal for family members who forget to turn the fan on -- and will stay on the max setting for the user-set 5-60 minute period after no motion is detected, before falling back to the continuous setting
    • Multi-Speed operation handles demanding spot ventilation needs, but can also pull double-duty as a great continuous ventilation solution to meet today’s stringent requirements. Upon installation, a continuous CFM adjustment dial is set to precisely control the airflow for the size of your house – so you’ll enjoy a successful inspection and not over-ventilate. A timer dial (adjustable from 5-60 minutes) is set at the same time to control how long the fan runs at maximum CFM, before automatically returning to the lower continuous ventilation level – all after you leave the room
    • ULTRALucent™ Lighting Technology provides 36 watt lights (two 18-watt bulbs included) delivering the brightness (measured in lumens) of models previously requiring 60 watts of CFL output – You get the best of both worlds; clear, even lighting with no hot spots and smaller energy bills
    • ULTRASilent™ with QStream™ Sound Technology results in operation at less than 0.3 Sones – the quietest sound rating attainable -- for an environment that is so quiet, you’ll likely forget the fan is on
    • ULTRAQuick™ Installation Technology uses an exclusive telescoping mounting frame with pre-installed screws, snap-in housing, snap-in blower and an inside-out mounting duct connector that are the fastest, easiest, most universal installation
    • Retrofit installations can be done entirely from the room-side – no attic access required. This means a faster, easier installation, so you can move on to something else
    • Unique telescoping mounting frame can be placed and fastened through drywall hole because it expands from 14” to 24” and fits any type of joist, I-Joist or truss construction for a “no guesswork” installation to make the work fast and easy
    • Snap-in housing and blower further simplify installation since you can hear – and feel – when they are properly seated. Easy-to-position carriage allows housing location adjustment between joists so you can control the correct ceiling placement
    • ULTRASmart™ DC Motor & Control Technology provides energy efficiency almost 10 times greater than ENERGY STAR® requirements and maintains rated power (CFM) in nearly every installation. You have confidence you’re getting the expected performance and won’t even notice the fan usage on your utility bill
    • UL Listed for use over tubs and showers with a GFCI circuit; so you can capture the steam before it spreads throughout the room by locating your fan exactly where you need it the most
    • Compatible with Radiation Damper RDFU which helps prevent flame and heat from spreading to other areas in multi-level buildings. In some cases an accessory wire jumper kit is required. This kit (model RDJUMPU) provides the additional lighting and sensing wire length necessary to bypass the damper
    • Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2 and CALGreen

  • Is the wall switch included?

    Will I need to purchase a wall switch or is it included with fan?
    Asked by: Donna
    Thank you for your question on the model ZB80ML multi-speed exhaust fan/light/night light/motion sensor. The wall switch does not come with the unit. You will need a total of five switches for independent operation of all functions. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    does motion sensor turn on light in addition to fan?

    Asked by: mike2
    Thank you for your question on the model ZB110ML motion sensing multi speed exhaust fan/light/night light. The motion sensor is designed to only operate with the exhaust fan. It will not operate the light.

    Wiring Diagram for ZB80ML and 77DV (or P77DV)

    Hi, I am trying to wire a ZB80ML up to a 77DV swtich and am having a little problem. Is there a wiring diagram on your website that has this specific design? The issue I am running into is that on the ZB80ML I have an extra black wire coming from the fan that I am not sure where it needs to be connected to on the 77DV switch so that both the auto setting and manual on setting work properly.

    Can I re-wire the Broan ZB110ML light?

    If I internally re-wire the Broan ZB110ML so that the sensor operates the light as well as the fan, will it work reliably? That is, can the sensor supply enough current to run the light along with the fan??
    Asked by: RH
    Thank you for your question on the model ZB110ML multi-speed, motion sensing exhaust fan/light/night light. The unit can be wired so the motion sensor will operate the light and fan together. The installation instructions show this wiring configuration.

    What is the footprint of the motion sensor on a 10 foot ceiling?

    What is the footprint of the motion sensor on a 10 foot ceiling? I want to install over the center of a walk in shower but do not want the motion sensor to pick up movement outside of the shower. Example when you walk into the bathroom I do not want the fan to come on but walk into the shower sensor to turn the fan on.
    Asked by: Mike
    Thank you for your question on the model ZB110ML motion sensing multi-speed exhaust fan/light/night light. The only information we have on a footprint is for an eight foot ceiling height installation. At eight foot high, the footprint will be eight foot in diameter at the floor. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
