Having been one of the market leaders in the creation of electrical fans and motors for some time, ebm-papst have now come up with EC technology. When compared to conventional fans with asynchronous motors, EC Technology achieves an efficiency of more than 90%.
That means energy consumption up to 50% lower compared to AC solutions. The speed of fans driven by EC technology can be controlled so that the air volume can be adapted to suit the specific requirements, which also results in further substantial energy savings.
The ‘In from the Cold 2010-2020’ strategy report has identified ways to potentially reduce energy consumption and lifecycle costs. The main ideas discussed included increasing the uptake of more efficient fan motors in all new equipment and as replacements in existing equipment.
It further identifies a strong role for MEPS in raising the efficiency level of the lowest performing units.
EC technology by ebm-papst will be able to meet future requirements.
ebm-papst currently offers an energy-efficient alternative in the shape of GreenTech EC technology. This not only meets but exceeds energy-efficiency requirements by some distance.
Thanks to the successful interaction of motor, electronics and aerodynamics, ebm-papst’s EC technology fans do not just convince with respect to their energy efficiency.
The fans also work extremely quietly thanks to their optimised commutation techniques and the aerodynamic configuration of the impellers. And on top of everything, they are also extremely reliable and durable.
Ebm-papst offer over 14,500 different products, all of which are designed to aid all air technology and drive engineering tasks.
