For mid-range fractional-horsepower applications, the ECM 142R motor is an energy-saving solution for split-system outdoor units, package units, or any prop-fan air-moving application requiring a ⅓- or ⅕-hp, 300-to-1,200-rpm motor.

Motor-disconnect switch

The MD50 motor-disconnect switch provides safe and quick power connections and prevents process interruption by cutting motor power, if needed, while not affecting the main circuit.

Internal disconnect switch

A visible internal disconnect switch on the SMVector frequency inverter removes motor power to facilitate service and maintenance. Useful in decentralized “point-of-use” operations, such as fans and pumps, the switch reduces equipment costs by eliminating the need for a separate external disconnect switch.

Motor/drive combination

A combination that can increase motor efficiency and double motor life in applications requiring variable speed and constant torque, AC induction motors paired with CFW11 inverters reduce heat buildup, double motor life, and reduce operating costs. The inverters have efficiency ratings greater than 97 percent.
