Wellington’s ECR® 2 fan motors have many advanced features which enable OEMs to improve cooler performance. In this blog post, we will discuss one of these: timed behaviors. The timed behavior function allows the motor to run in one mode for a period, then change to a different mode, without any change in the control inputs. Creative use of this feature offers many opportunities to enhance and differentiate cooler behavior.
ECR 2 fan motors achieve simple on-off control by removing power from the brown (phase) wire. Alternatively, they are configurable for three “speed” settings, these are selected by connecting the black (control) wire to phase, to neutral, or not connecting it.
For any given connection position of the black wire (i.e. to phase, neutral, or nothing), the motor behavior can be configured so:
