Regal to Debut Energy Efficient Suite of Products at AHR

GlacAir Motor Fan
Experience-based product displays to provide show attendees with application-specific solutions

BELOIT, Wis., January 4, 2017 — Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, announced that it will debut several new energy-efficient products alongside its core HVACR products during AHR Expo 2018 in Chicago from January 22 through January 24 at booth S-4945.  

Regal will introduce the GlacAir™ motor and fan, which utilizes an axial flux electronically commutated motor (ECM) design for higher-efficiency commercial refrigeration applications such as display cases and reach-in coolers. The company will also debut its Browning® Toolbox Technician® motor efficiency calculator app, which enables the identification of potential energy efficiency gains by allowing users to select operational parameters and automatically generate displays with projected ROIs. 

“These products represent our ongoing commitment to developing designs focused on energy reductions, lower total cost of ownership and maximum efficiencies for our customers,” said Paul Selking, HVAC Business Leader, Regal Beloit Corporation. “The AHR Expo provides the ideal platform to highlight these product advancements and demonstrate their myriad benefits for our customers.”

Regal will also feature its new Genteq® hermetic compressor drive, a revolutionary drive design that enables the compressor and fan motor in a condensing unit to run at independent variable speeds via a controller, in turn allowing for a higher efficiency and increase of at least two SEER points over standard systems. This drive commands standard permanent split capacitor (PSC) condenser and compressor motors to run at lower speeds when full speeds driven by direct line power are not needed, therefore consuming less energy.

In addition to the new products, Regal will also feature many of its core products already on the market, including the UlteMAX® axial permanent magnet motor, 11-inch DEC Star® blower assembly with forward-curved Kooluk™ wheel, Genteq Evergreen® InTune® Wi-Fi programmer and Marathon® NovaMax™ motor. These products will all be displayed in customer experience areas to showcase Regal® solutions based on specific applications such as commercial refrigeration, commercial air handlers/condensers, residential HVAC, and aftermarket and rooftop air handlers.
