German fan manufacturer ebm-papst has launched its new iQ-one EC fan motor, which is suitable for a wide range of applications.
Notably, it meets multiple European household appliance standards for flammable refrigerants, providing a safe hydrocarbon-based cooling system, according to a recent statement from the company.
The motor is up to 50% more energy efficient than the conventional Q motors and enables an output of up to 5W, making it a like-for-like replacement for existing Q or shaped-pole motors. The iQ-one motor’s efficiency savings is particularly high in supermarket settings, according to the manufacturer, due to the continual operation of many fans.
It has been designed for all typical supply voltages and can be combined with 154, 172 and 200mm (6.1, 6.8 and 7.9in) fan impellers. Even at full power, the motor has low noise characteristics, said ebm-papst.
“Whether in the beer cooler, the vegetable display or the undercounter refrigerator, a motor that runs almost constantly must be extremely economical and efficient – while still being quiet and durable,” said ebm-papst. “The iQ-one EC motor combines all of these characteristics.“
“Combined with an aerodynamically optimized fan impeller, it is the answer to these refrigeration technology requirements,” the company added.
