EC Fans & Drives is highly regarded as the number one choice for the most energy-efficient motor and fan solutions in North America and Europe, known for their innovation and high-quality products. According to many studies, electric motors are responsible for about 45% of the total consumption of electric energy, and we know from published reports that 40% of all energy costs in grocery stores is consumed by the refrigeration process. Our goal is to constantly develop innovative fan and motor designs to reduce energy spend and the carbon footprints of commercial refrigeration products.
EC stands for Electronically Commutated EC stands for Electronically Commutated often referred to as a Brushless DC electric motor (BLDC motor) with integrated controller electronics. The integrated printed circuit board-based controller, which is managed by proprietary software, provides pulses of current to the motor windings that control the speed and torque of the motor. Therefore, every manufacturer adjusts their product per application to provide the optimal amount of power to the motor which makes EC or BLDC motors more efficient than AC motors. This not only allows us to ensure that each customer application has the exact right amount of airflow. We also reduce the amount of energy consumption as we don’t require the customers to use the off-the-shelf pre-set speed, which is not needed in many applications. Our business is focused on EC motors, which is why we have created features such as soft start (which requires less energy), developed unique fan blade designs that improve airflow, along with many other small improvements so that we can help our customers create more energy-efficient products. Along with providing more than 70% more energy efficiency over traditional shaded pole motors and superior performance over most of our EC counterparts, our EC products have several advantages to our customers along with being more energy-efficient:
Our EC fans and motor product line has been built with the customer needs in mind which is why we have so many different types and sizes to meet application requirements. Being a flexible company that is willing to work with customers on small adjustments to our products to help them meet their needs is what has differentiated EC Fans and Drives from the competitors. With millions of motors in operation around the globe, you can be sure these motors will provide the most efficient solution for refrigerated cabinet applications for many years to come.
