Johnson Electric Launches Motors for HVAC Valve Actuators

March 8, 2010

HONG KONG, March 8 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Johnson Electric today
announced the first of many new electronically commutated (EC) motors that are
under development. This new brushless DC motor product line is designed for
high efficiency, long life and precision detente torque performance in
critical HVAC valve and damper control applications.

The HVAC valve motor product line comes in two versions, low detente
torque and high detente torque in three packages, 24mm, 30mm and 38mm diameter.
The low detente torque motors are for spring-return applications, while the
high detente torque versions are for non-spring return applications. A key
feature of this product line is highly stable detente torque over time, even
in a high temperature and high humidity environment. This motor performance
level is achieved by an innovative magnetic design and a unique mechanical
structure utilizing precision components throughout.

meaning efficiency, enclosed by a circle to represent motion.
