Focus on energy efficiency at the Hannover Messe

From 4 - 8 April 2011, the motor and fan specialist ebm-papst will be presenting its product range in Hall 15, Stand F29 of the Hannover Messe industrial trade fair.

"Salt-resistant" compact fans of the 630 series are suitable for use under harsh environmental conditions.

The straightforward 1:1 mechanical replacement of existing AC units will be demonstrated using the new "RadiCal" centrifugal fan line featuring GreenTech EC technology. A new motor concept makes these fans with integrated electronics as compact as conventional AC fans. Users of this new technology will benefit from the familiar advantages of GreenTech EC technology in conjunction with the efficient RadiCal fan impellers. Energy savings of up to 50% and a halving of noise emissions are possible in operation.

Reliability, service life, energy consumption – the new generation of AC fans satisfies the very highest standards in all these areas. For the first time, both the drive and the fan and converter electronics are integrated directly into the motor hub.

The new 630 series has been specially developed for applications in harsh environmental conditions, such as outdoor applications in telecommunications or solar inverters. The compact DC fan satisfies all standards for salt spray resistance. The fan also sets benchmarks in terms of efficiency – some 15% higher than the predecessor models.

The VDC-3-49.15 series of electronically commutated external rotor motors with operating electronics now has a new addition. The version with integrated CANopen communication interface, which goes by the name "K5", takes the step into the world of bus communication – ideal for use in automation systems.

As an efficient solution and replacement for conventional shaded-pole motors, ebm-papst offers the iQ motor line, which has now been expanded with the iQ². The IP54 motors of insulation class H for 230 V connections now offer substantially more. Besides optimised efficiency, other practical characteristics have been incorporated into the motor. Modern electronics allow a special control technology and thus additional functions.

In addition to these product highlights, other innovative motor and fan solutions will be on show for a range of applications, such as operating tables, control cabinet cooling, cold/hot air door curtains, pump drives, Fan Coils, heat pumps etc. The focus of the presentation at the fair will be a world first in the field of "green" fans. More detailed information will follow in mid-March 2011.
