Company's first branded product helps HVAC businesses streamline operations

"After years of perfecting the motor’s design to ensure it performs at optimum level and provides the greatest benefit to consumers, East West obtained UL1004-7 approval in late December, 2018."

East West Manufacturing (East West), a global design, manufacturing and distribution company based in Atlanta, GA, has launched its own 1/6th HP EC Motor, which will be available in early January, 2019. This unique product, designed for the HVAC industry, not only offers the same impressive energy savings as other EC motors, but also provides tri-voltage (115, 208/230, 277 VAC) compatibility suited for input power systems ranging from 115-277 V, 50/60 Hz in a single motor SKU. This unique design feature, coupled with its small footprint and extensive input/output options (3-speed selectable, 0-10 VDC, PWM, tachometer output) allows businesses to streamline their operations by reducing the number of motor SKUs in their inventory, ultimately providing more flexibility to adapt to their customer demand.

After years of perfecting the motor’s design to ensure it performs at optimum level and provides the greatest benefit to consumers, East West obtained UL1004-7 approval in late December, 2018. Their team of experts has garnered 20 years of experience manufacturing AC motors before developing its own branded product.

“We are thrilled to have obtained approval for the motor and hope it is the first of many products being launched by East West,” says Adam Sanderson, Vice President of Value Engineering. “Our engineering team has put forth monumental effort to get us to this point, and we are looking forward to sharing this product with our customers.”

EC motors, boast significant advantages over their permanent split capacitor (PSC) counterparts, including their high efficiency and lower noise output. Even with a compact 95 mm frame size footprint the East West 1/6th HP EC Motor has a peak efficiency of 74 percent versus comparable PSC motor efficiencies in the 50-60% range.

“This motor offers a truly unique blend of a wide input voltage rand, many input/output options and field programmability via Bluetooth interface, all in a compact footprint and affordable price point,” said Dave Purvis, Director of Motor Business Development.

Those interested in learning more about the 1/6th HP EC Motor by East West are encouraged to contact Purvis to schedule an individualized meeting at dpurvis(at)ewmfg(dot)com.
