It is only the only model in the range which can be supplied in materials compatible with European and US food contact regulations, providing added flexibility in food services applications. The ECR2 boasts unmatched features and flexibility, with the highest efficiency, lowest noise while still being cost effective. It can also provide maximum supply chain flexibility and advanced control strategies. The ECR2 advanced motor electronics mean they are 4.5dBA quieter than its competitors, designed to handle the most severe refrigeration applications featuring IP67 environmental protection, over-temperature “foldback” capability which maintains airflow even in extreme conditions, and EMC protection to double the IEC Industrial specification.
If the end user is looking for a simple, reliable and low cost EC motor the ECR82/92 is the motor to pick as long as the user is happy to compromise slightly in noise and efficiency. This model is suitable for use with most axial fans from 150-220mm for 60Hz and is available in an ATEX version. The ECR82/92 is mains synchronous meaning they only run at a fixed speed related to the AC mains frequency – 1500rpm for 50Hz supplies, or 1800rpm for 60Hz.
The ECR1 is the best motor for the job is the user needs maximum speed or power (2300 RPM and up to 25W) with a high level of flexibility and performance. This model is also available in an ATEX version. The ECR1 motors are suitable for use with most axial fans from 172-254mm. The ECR1 is a great solution for remote and plug-in applications.
