Electronically Commutated (EC) Fans

Orion Fans provide energy savings for AC fan applications

Image of Orion Fans electronically commutated fans Orion Fans' EC fans are powered by brushless DC motors, which are also known as electronically commutated motors. A DC motor can be up to 50% more efficient than an AC motor due to its inherent design that uses permanent magnets rather than copper windings to generate a secondary magnetic field. The increased efficiency of the brushless motor means that less energy is lost as heat, while more energy is turned into rotational force and, therefore, power.

Designed for continuous-use consumer and commercial applications, the EC series fans are available in 60 mm, 120 mm, 172 mm, and 250 mm package sizes, and are drop-in replacements for power-hungry AC fans. They offer energy savings, enabling customers to meet energy-consumption requirements from agencies like ENERGY STAR. Some models are available with dual-speed functionality and universal voltage range. For custom requirements, Orion’s dual-speed EC fans can be programmed at the factory to deliver even more power savings.


  • Significantly lowers power consumption
  • Eliminates sparking and EMI in brushed motors
  • Longer service life due to lower operating temperatures and less heat loss
  • IP68-ATEX ratings available
