What are the advantages of EC motors?
EC motors are very high efficiency electric motors (80%) and maintain a high efficiency level at part speed. This means that in most cases they use less than one third to half of the electricity used by traditional induction motors, which in turn translates into lower operating costs and short payback periods. As EC motors have a higher efficiency this ensures that the motors run cooler in application which ensures a longer life for the motor.
In terms of speed control and features, because the motor’s operation is controlled by software, EC motors allow customers to optimize and integrate the motor, fan and controller with the application, and to include features like data communications, constant volume control, variable speed.
