9 History of ECM Technology Page 2New Name, same reputation for innovative, premium comfort and electrical componentsProven reputation for high quality, highly reliable products and strong customer relationshipsA wealth of information at your fingertips
10 Overview of ECM Technology Page 3ECM (Electronically Commutated Motor)Brushless DC, permanent magnet rotorMore efficient than PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) motorsUsed throughout HVACRProgrammableDirect drive fractional horse power motorsECMPSC
11 Overview of ECM Technology Page 3Mid 1900’s PSC replaces shaded pole as standardBetter starting torque and efficiencyLow cost and simpleLimited operation due to fixed motor poles, fixed supplied frequency (60 Hz), 3-5 speedsSlave to airside resistancePSC
12 Overview of ECM Technology Page 4PSC Motor ChartSynchronous speed = Frequency x 120 / PolesRated Speed = Synchronous speed minus electrical and mechanical losses in the motor and loadOperation range = The range the motor will typically operate at under load
13 Overview of ECM Technology Page 4PSC peak efficiency is 60% at design rated speed and loadEfficiency degrades by load and speed changesEfficiency loss of the rotorBasic A/C motor design, rotor follows the rotating field (magnetic effect) in the statorPSC
14 Overview of ECM Technology Page 5ECM – Basic electric motor operated by a microprocessor based controlLine voltage powers control, control operates motor from communication and programmingAbility to control Torque, Speed or bothIncreased range of operation and efficiencyMore precise control than speed tapsAbility to compensate for airside restrictions
15 Overview of ECM Technology Page 5Old definitionICM (Integrated Control Module)Current definitionECM (Electronically Commutated Motor)Commutate – change or reverse the direction of an electric current (the means by which all electric motors rotate)
16 Overview of ECM Technology Page 5The Genteq™ motor, currently used by most residential HVAC systems is a brushless DC, three-phase motor with a permanent magnet rotor.Motor phases are sequentially energized by the electronic control, powered from a single-phase supply.Made of two componentsMotor Control (control module)Motor (motor control)Motor Control3-Phase Motor
