The imPower motor is a permanent magnet alternating current (PMAC) electronically commutated motor (ECM), leveraging over 20 years of ECM technical and manufacturing experience. The motor can save up to 85% of electrical consumption due to this innovative motor design. This imPower motor is designed to replace existing full-rated pool filter pump motors rated at 3/4 HP 1.65 SF or up-rated motor at 1.0HP 1.25 SF.
Designed as a drop-in replacement for an induction motor, there are three easy ways to install the energy-saving imPower pool pump motor:
- Install the imPower motor directly to your existing single-speed timer. The motor operates on high speed for 2 hours and low speed for the remaining hours set on the timer. The homeowner can change the speed via the buttons on the top of the motor control panel to any of the three speeds. No difficult programming to learn. Easy!
- Install the imPower pool pump motor to a two speed timer. The imPower motor can allow for any of the three speeds to be operated by the two speed timer by allowing the second speed to be changed between the medium and low speeds which can be accomplished in 10 seconds.
- Finally, install the imPower pool motor to a third party automation controller. The automation controller can select any of the three speeds via a low voltage DC signal for the ultimate flexibility. All programming is done on the automation controller.
With any of the three optional installations, there is no additional time needed for installation versus a standard single speed induction motor.Reliable
There's more to the imPower pool pump motor than just energy efficiency. It's lighter and more compact than typical induction motors and operates with less noise, offering virtually silent filtering operation. Also, the imPower features TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) construction and a high-strength bearing system. What does all that mean? Simply that this motor is as tough and reliable as it is smart. The imPower motor is also built on the ECM technology that we have manufactured for the HVAC market for over 20 years, ensuring that the benefits of the imPower motor can be experienced for many years. Effecient
imPower's three-speed design makes it ideal for pumping applications. As the affinity law of hydraulics states, if the speed of the motor is halved, the power is reduced by a factor of eight. The lower speeds with the imPower motor enable the pump to filter at lower speeds, resulting in energy savings for the homeowner. Anytime that a contractor can help a customer save money, the contractor ends up coming out ahead as well.
The imPower motor is inherently more efficient than traditional induction motors, thanks to its innovative brush less permanent-magnet design. As compared to a single speed induction motor, the imPower motor is over 12% more efficient on high speed, over 50% more efficient on medium speed, and over 80% more efficient on low speed. Consumers can see savings as high as $513* per year after replacing a single speed motor with the imPower motor. It's an upgrade your customers will love.
