The SMS utilizes the design simplicity and optimal performance characteristics of the Switched Reluctance Motor. Patented hardware and software improvements, drawing on the cutting-edge technologies used in mobile computing and electric vehicles to provide intelligent controls. The first software-driven motor is the most efficient, reliable, and intelligent motor ever made.
Forward-Thinking Five Guys Franchise Sees Big Savings in Energy Efficiency With Upgrades to HVAC Motors
We offer a 5 year warranty on the Smart Motor System when financed through the EEaaSY Plan.
It all starts with the manufacturing of the Smart Motor. The windings in the stator are concentrically wound around the stator pole with short end turns. These are inherently easier to wind and insert. The rotor is a laminated stack of steel with no-slip rings, brushes, bars, magnets, or other secondary manufacturing steps than just stamping.
No. At this time the Smart Motor System can only be installed in Belt Driven Units and with motors between 1HP-15HP.
The Turntide Smart Motor System drives down energy consumption in HVAC through a combination of innovations based on optimal device physics, precise control algorithms, and connectivity.
1) Optimal Device Physics: Turntide motors are based on an optimally efficient motor design which is based on a variation of switched reluctance motor (SRM) architecture.
2) Precise Control Algorithms: The Turntide Motor Controller feeds in precise control algorithms to ensure the motor always runs at the highest efficiency possible.
3) Connectivity: With a motor system that is connected to sensors and the cloud, the Turntide Smart Motor System monitors the motor’s operating environment to enable you to ensure motors are running on optimal operating parameters – anytime, anywhere.
Real-time monitoring includes automated fault detection with the capability to send alerts if abnormal operating conditions arise. The system integrates easily with building management systems via industry-standard protocols.
Over-the-air updates enable performance optimization of embedded firmware and control sequences resulting in a system that improves over time.
