Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine has named ABB’s Baldor-Reliance EC Titanium motors a Silver Award winner in the HVAC/R Systems & Equipment category in this year’s Product of the Year contest. The Product of the Year contest is the premier award for new products in the HVAC, fire/life safety, electrical and plumbing systems engineering markets. The annual reader-choice program was created to provide Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s audience with information about the top new products in their fields.
EC Titanium combines synchronous reluctance and permanent magnet technologies for a sustainable, wirelessly connected solution that improves customers’ bottom line. Available as a motor only or integrated motor drive unit, EC Titanium are offered in standard NEMA dimensions and can be provided with IEC mounting compatibility.
EC Titanium motors and integrated motor drive units meet and exceed IE5 efficiency. Suitable for constant and variable torque applications. They offer excellent performance across a wide speed load range and above base speed conditions. The near unity power factor of the EC Titanium enables the use of smaller drives, reducing the footprint and weight of the integrated system. Additionally, the integrated motor drive solution saves considerable control panel space and reduces wiring costs by placing the drive on top of or on the opposite drive end of the motor.
Most integrated motor drive models are ABB Ability ready, with built-in capability allowing for greater connectivity to empower real-time, data-driven decisions for safer, smarter operations that maximize resource efficiency and contribute to a low-carbon future. ABB Ability helps organizations automate, optimize and future-proof their business to achieve new heights of performance and drive sustainable progress
