Wellington ECR 2 SKU reduction, save money, 99.97% reliable

Our Wellington 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.
  • Designed to handle the most severe refrigeration applications.
  • Features IP67 environmental protection.
  • Over-temperature “foldback” capability, which maintains airflow even in extreme conditions.
  • Features EMC protection to double the IEC industrial specification.
  • Suitable for use with most axial fans from 125-220mm (5″- 8.75″).
  • ATEX compliant, and suitable for use with hydrocarbon refrigerants.
  • Optional materials compatible with US and European food contact regulations, giving increased flexibility in foodservice applications.

Wellington ECR 1 Maximum power or speed

Our Wellington ECR 1 is the motor to select if you need maximum power or speed (up to 25 W and 2300 RPM), with a good level of performance and flexibility.

  • A proven solution for plug-in and remote applications, with over two million Wellington ECR motors in the field and growing.
  • Suitable for use with most axial fans from 172-254mm (7″-10″).
  • Can also be supplied in long-shaft versions for agitator applications.
  • Available in both ATEX and “hydrocarbon compatible”* versions.

*certified to IEC60335-2-89 Annex BB

Wellington ECR 82/92 Simple, reliable and low cost

Our Wellington ECR 82 (230V) and ECR 92 (115V) are ideal motors to choose if you want a simple, reliable, low-cost EC motor, and can compromise slightly on noise and efficiency.

  • These models are “synchronous motors,” meaning they only run at a fixed speed related to the input voltage frequency; 1500 RPM for 50 Hz supplies, or 1800 RPM for 60 Hz.
  • Suitable for use with most axial fans from 150-220mm (6″-8.75″).
  • Available in both ATEX and “hydrocarbon compatible” * versions.

*certified to IEC60335-2-89 Annex BB
