ST. LOUIS – Feb. 3, 2023 – Nidec’s research investments over the last decade to develop highly energy efficient electrical motors are paying off for the HVACR industry. Under increasingly stringent requirements from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the industry is finding that Nidec’s U.S. MOTORS brand of integrated motors and drives offer efficiency levels that often exceed even the newest regulations.
Nidec motors and drives are essential components in the operation and efficiency of air conditioning and heating equipment including furnaces, air handlers, heat pumps and condensers, as well as compressors in refrigeration. Nidec serves original equipment manufacturers and retrofitters; the company also provides aftermarket replacement motors.
The company will be showcasing its motors, drives and controls at the AHR Expo Feb. 6-8; Booth #B2339.
“Delivering green technologies that meet or exceed standards for efficiency continues to be a high priority,” said Tim Schamel, President of Nidec Motor Corporation. “Our HVACR and appliance division has more than 50 research and development labs dedicated to bringing innovative solutions such as our integrated motors and controls, synchronous motors, ECMs and variable speed motors. Contractors can feel confident they’re offering the industry’s best solutions to their commercial and residential customers.”
Nidec’s new, award-winning, premium IE4/IE5 SynRA™ motor is now available integrated with the Nidec ID300 drive, allowing commercial HVAC contractors or building maintenance staff to connect to building automation. Called the ID300 Perfectspeed™, the product provides significant energy savings and low lifetime operation costs.
The company is also increasing its focus on IAQ (indoor air quality) initiatives in 2023. Nidec’s electronically commutated motors (ECMs) allow for a significant increase in air filtration, while also offering the benefit of up to 75 percent better energy efficiency when operating in continuous mode.
Nidec representatives will be available at the AHR Expo for further discussions on efficiency and IAQ. In addition, Nidec will feature the following products at the AHR Expo:
