From Q motor to iQ motor: Same on the Outside - Efficient on the inside.
Practical. Intelligent. With the new iQ motor ebm-papst has broken the barrier
restraining engineers from improving efficiencies in existing refrigeration
From Q motor to iQ
motor: Same on the Outside - Efficient on the inside.
In developing the iQ motor - permanent magnet motor
(PMM) we have taken giant strides towards reducing
the energy costs, lowering waste heat and fulfilling the environmental
protection developments. Integrated EC technology has significantly increased
the overall standard of a motor technology; the new iQ motors, a high
efficiency ventilation motor achieve
greater levels of efficiency resulting in shorter and shorter payback periods
both for the end user and the environment.
Switching over to the new motor technology is worthwhile whenever an old
shaded-pole motor should be replaced or energy-savings are desired. The switch to
high efficiency refrigeration
motor pays off
for both the
environment and the user, as this shows: In
a small supermarket, 40 fans are used that have 200 mm impellers and a 34°
+ The energy
savings is 70%, which corresponds to 7.5 MWh per year.
= For the
environment, this value means that 4.4 fewer tonnes of carbon dioxide.
= For the user
there are profits as well: assume an electricity price of 0.14$ per kWh, then
save 622 $ a year.
costs of a Q motor are the unknown and hidden costs – these massively outweigh
the initial capital cost outlay.
Moving to high efficiency motors
gives life time savings as shown. The longer the
life of these savings the better it is to the bottom line.
efficiency: Quieter, better fan solutions.
