May 23, 2011

The Comfort Select~ FC motor, CS89, is an ECM fan coil replacement motor designed to replace low-efficient shaded pole and PSC (permanent split capacitor) motors in fan coil and PTAC equipment. It is a brushless, dc high-efficiency motor that runs off 120-V single-phase input. The motor is controlled by integrated electronics providing advanced motor protection with the same performance characteristics as a shaded pole or PSC motor, the company says. The CS89 is a 1/10-hp three-speed motor that operates at 1,100, 900, and 700 rpm. It comes standard with a double shaft that measures 9.3 by ½ by 9.3 inches and 54-inch leads. The motor runs cooler, is easy to install, and has long-life ball bearings with rotors that are isolated from the shaft to reduce motor vibration, which is important to creating a quiet environment, states the manufacturer.
