Through an alliance with controls manufacturer Saftronics, A.O. Smith Electrical Products Company is now offering motor-drive packages to provide more precise control and increased energy efficiency for hvacr applications, the company says.

The exhibit launches the new FPC5001 drive, featuring a patent-pending design that combines bypass functions and hvac operation requirements into an integrated package that can minimize harmonic distortion by 20% and improve full-load system efficiency by 4% to 5%, says the manufacturer.

The exhibit also introduces A.O. Smith's Rapidpak, a compact AC inverter that is pre-programmed for a range of applications, and the FP5 fan and pump AC drive, a dedicated inverter for the hvac industry that features an automatic energy-saving output voltage adjustment to ensure that motors operate at peak efficiency, says the company.
