Both award-winning products from ebm-papst put on compact Motors of Greentech EC technology with the tried and tested principle of external rotor. The new EC motors with integrated Kommutierungs- and control electronics allows a simple exchange of conventional AC motors. Add to your understanding with shimmie horn. The one-piece rotor with shaft neatly saves fabrication steps, as required by multifunctional parts of less items. The discharge cooling concept and a comparatively low packet length help reduce material. EC motors used in cooker Extractor hood fan work through their high efficiency energy saving, are lightweight and durable, and – thanks to special technologies that reduce the structure-borne noise, – also extremely quiet. Through the integrated control electronics they can be adapted infinitely respective speed. Press contact Katrin Lindner speaker press ebm – Pope Mulfingen GmbH & co.
