EC Fans & Drives: High Efficiency Ventilation
High-efficiency fans.
New Bedford MA — EC Fans & Drives, a division of Epec Engineered Technologies, has launched its new EXR series of high efficiency, electronically commutated motors. Early indications are that the EXR series motor has comprehensively rewritten the benchmark for energy efficient residential ventilation.

The Energy Star requirements for efficient residential ventilation systems currently demand that a residential ventilation fan moves at least 2.8 cubic feet per meter of air per Watt of electrical energy consumed by the fan. If that minimum standard is not achieved, a residential ventilation product will not be awarded the Energy Star mark of approval.

Independent testing on a residential ventilation system fitted with EC Fans & Drives' new EXR50 electric motor indicated that the EXR50 powered system was in fact exceeding the Energy Star minimum airflow per Watt of energy requirement by more than 500 percent.

According to the company, it is among the leaders in Electronically Commutated (EC) technology and has developed a comprehensive range of energy-efficient electric motors, fans and backward-curved impellers that serve a wide range of applications across a broad cross section of industries.

With this technically advanced range of high performance, high efficiency motors and fans, the company offers a 21st Century solution to companies seeking a high performance yet high efficiency capability, combining full functionality, variable speed control, and best in class power consumption for all customer applications.
