From our U.S. MOTORS Brand:

  • SynRA™ Synchronous Reluctance Motor – This variable frequency motor provides the starting benefit of an induction motor, the operating benefit of a pure synchronous reluctance motor, and suitability benefit from the simple volts/hz drive. This motor provides higher efficiency and power density without risking components. A unique design gives the freedom to replace components individually instead of the entire system - leading to a lower cost of maintenance. 

  • ID300 PerfectSpeed™ – Combines the super-premium SynRA™ motor with the ID300 drive to create an integrated drive motor that performs reliably, efficiently, and is easy to install and maintain.

  • ID300 Fusion™ – This integrated high-performance drive meets the demand for pump systems that are smaller, more compact than their predecessors, easier to transport, simpler to install, and quicker to integrate into existing systems.

  • Neptune® Variable Speed Fan or Pump Motor - Multi-horsepower, dual voltage premium efficient motor, with single phase power supply and no wiring changes required. Delivers high performance and energy savings in a quiet motor. We will also be running a Neptune Hybrid demo.  With regulations changing soon, customers should be looking to learn more from our running VSPD circulator pump motor which is 80+% efficient.
  • RESCUE EZ13® – Universal ECM Replacement:  RESCUE EZ13 is a high-efficient ECM designed as a drop-in replacement for OEM constant torque ECM. The auto rotation sensing technology automatically determines motor direction.  It's wired to the OEM equipment using the equipment's existing connections for ease of installation. No programming required.

  • RESCUE EZ16® – 16-Pin Universal ECM Replacement: The RESCUE EZ16 motor is a patented electronically commutated constant torque aftermarket motor developed for the HVAC residential/light commercial market. Equipped with an EZ Interface (EZI) box used to tune the motor at installation, it provides a drop-in solution for systems using legacy 16-pin variable speed EC motors.

  • RESCUE Select Pro™ – Preprogrammed ECM Replacement for Furnaces and Air Handlers: The RESCUE Select Pro is the aftermarket solution for OEM constant torque EC motors. With thousands of OEM performance profiles on a cloud-based web service app, the RESCUE Select Pro can be programmed directly through any smart phone or Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® enabled device.

  • RESCUE EcoTech® – PSC to ECM replacement motor. Designed to be a drop-in replacement for permanent split capacitor (PSC) motors. RESCUE EcoTech motors are multi-horsepower, dual voltage and have reversible rotation. Not wiring changes are required.

  • RESCUE EcoTech® Outdoor 48 – Developed to stand up to harsh environments and temperatures found in outdoor condensing units. The RESCUE EcoTech Outdoor 48 EC Condenser Fan Motor is programmed to match the rotation and speed most preferred by major equipment manufacturers; and offers the flexibility for adjustment to speed and rotation. 

  • SelecTech Motor® – The SelecTech Motor is a durable, easy-to-integrate Electrically commutated Motor (ECM) solution for high-efficient direct drive blower applications. The available nine discrete 24 volt tap settings are fully programmable on your assembly line for different airflow requirements. Rugged and simple to operate, the SelecTech motor is setting a new benchmark for reliable ECM technology. Includes 460V and dual shaft configurations.

  • PERFECTSPEED® Motor - The PerfectSpeed EC Motor system is the solution to meet the increasing demand for electrically commutated motors (ECM) in modern HAC and ventilation systems. With a wide range of control options, voltages and mechanical configurations (Constant CFM, Constant Torque, or Constant Speed), the PerfectSpeed motor offers the high efficiency and precise airflow control needed in a broad array of air-moving applications, all backed by Nidec's extensive ECM experience and close application support.

  • EcoTech EC Motor - Upgrade to the performance and efficiency of an EC motor without redesigning systems! The ECOTECH® Line Voltage EC Motor provides benefits of ECM technology as a "drop-in" for most PSC-powered blowers. Five factory programmed torque or speed settings are controlled by line voltage speed taps allowing connection directly to existing controls and switches, simply and easily. The ECOTECH® EC motor is the simplest path to advanced technology in HVAC systems.
