• The fan can operate in constant flow, temperature control, or pressure control applications
• Alarm relays and tach-out signals can be monitored to ensure proper operation
• Long service life (brushless DC, use of semiconductors)
• Integrated protective functions e.g. locked – rotor protection and protection against incorrect connection
• Soft start and soft commutation
• Frequency independent
• EC motors show the same characteristics independent from the frequency of the power supply (50Hz or 60Hz)
• Same air performance and input power over input voltage range e.g. no change in performance from 1-200 VAC to 1-277 VAC (the current changes)
