New Technology from Trane

Published on HVACR & Plumbing  |  June 30, 2010, 21:18

The new energy efficiency for HVAC system applied by Trane, is using the innovative electronic commutation (EC) fan motor technology throughout its range of chilled water terminals.


This new technology, applied to office buildings and hotels, will generate substantial energy savings and improved user comfort.

EC motors using electronic commutation of motor windings require four times less energy (Watt) than conventional alternating current (AC) motors in the low speed range.

EC fan motors run at all speeds throughout the entire operating range of the unit, with the motor rpm-controlled via a 0 to10 Volt signal from a unit controller. Without perceptible sound shift when modulating the fan speed to adapt to minimum cooling and heating load variations, increased acoustic and thermal comfort is ensured.

"Building and hotel owners can reduce energy bills for their air-conditioned spaces by up to 90 percent by incorporating Trane terminal units with EC motor technology into their HVAC system," said Franck Biegalke, applied integrated systems leader for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa. "This technology will help ensure lower electricity cost thereby limited impact on the cost of ownership moving forward. This will keep rent rates stable for years. In addition, with energy regulations becoming ever more stringent, investing in EC fan motor terminals today will guarantee the value of building assets for years to come."

Trane incorporated the new technology into three types of terminal units: the new horizontal concealed fan coil FED and U-Line units, and the chilled water cassette CWE.
