St. Louis, MO (January 30, 2017) – Nidec Motor Corporation is launching a new generation of its U.S. MOTORS® brand PerfectSpeed® Advanced EC (electronically commutated) Motor and SelecTech® Constant Torque EC Motor.
With this new line of products, Nidec can offer not only greater peak efficiency, but OEMs can select efficiency levels to better meet their equipment needs, providing “good, better, best” efficiency options all with the same reliability and durability they have come to expect from Nidec motors. The new designs offer greater flexibility while being 100% compatible with current products so less engineering is required for implementation.
The PerfectSpeed® EC Motor system is the solution to meet the increasing demand for electrically commutated motors in modern HAC and ventilation systems. With a wide range of control options, voltages and mechanical configurations, 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.
The SelecTech® motor is a durable, easy to integrate EC solution for high efficiency air handlers or gas furnaces. Rugged and simply to operate, the SelecTech® is setting a new benchmark for reliable EC motor technology
For more than 20 years, Nidec has been a leader in EC motor technologies for a variety of industries including commercial and residential applications in HVAC. EC motors are comprised of a brushless permanent magnet (BPM) motor integrated with an electronic control module. This precisely drives the motor’s permanent magnet rotor which provides more energy-efficient operation.
