Home > ECR Motor campaign

The business environment has prompted many companies to find innovative ways to save money, streamline supply chains, boost reliability, and improve their end products.

ECR® motors help your bottom line, as they reduce the active SKUs that your operation requires by as much as 57:1. They are proven to be up to 99.97% reliable in the field, saving warranty costs, and their dual voltage capability means that one motor works anywhere in the world. At only 36.5 dBA, they are among the quietest motors in the industry too. Whether you’re looking for condenser fan motors or evaporator fan motors, there will be an ECR motor to fit the application you have in mind.


ECR 2 SKU reduction, save money, 99.97% reliable

ECR 2 is the refrigerator motor to select if you need low noise, high efficiency, and high reliability.

  • Up to 4.5dBA quieter than competing commercial refrigeration fan motors.
  • Universal input voltage and frequency allows maximum supply chain flexibility.
  • Integrate advanced variable speed and reversing strategies, while maintaining a reasonable cost.
  • Motors ship from Wellington with 3 programmable speeds of your choice, enabling SKU reductions of up to 57:1.
  • Designed to handle the most severe refrigeration applications.
