How does a ECM electric motor work?
Beside this, how does an ECM blower motor work?
ECMs are a type of DC motor. They are also called DC fan motors, EEM fan motors, and variable speed fan motors. The microprocessor uses a closed-loop feedback mechanism to more precisely control the magnetic fields, minimizing the eddy currents and losses used by traditional mechanically commutated motors.
One may also ask, how does an electronically commutated motor work? An electronically commutated motor (ECM) uses a microprocessor controller that sequentially energizes/de-energizes each winding of the stator with power to generate an electrical current.
Moreover, what does ECM motor mean?
Electronically Commutated Motor
Are ECM motors reliable?
Not only are they simple and inexpensive, but they've proven to be an extremely reliable component. The average lifespan of a PSC motor is around 40,000 hours, though an ECM surpasses it at 90,000 hours.
