Motors - PSC Internal Capacitor United Bearing Motors

PSC Internal Capacitor
Unit Bearing Motors

Applications

Our PSC internal capacitor unit bearing motors are primarily used in commercial refrigeration applications, both evaporator and condenser, but can be used in any application demanding dependability with output ratings between 1 – 9 watts.

Innovative design

With over 60 years of experience our patented unit bearing motors provide our customers with years of durable, problem-free operation. Our PSC has twice the efficiency and is significantly quieter than our shaded pole motor. Utilizing a patented, internally-mounted capacitor results in a compact, single-component unit, our internal capacitor unit bearing motors provides you with direct mechanical interchangeability with our current shaded pole unit bearing motors.

Optimize your performance

All of our PSC internal capacitor unit bearing motors can be sold with a variety of mounting brackets and fan blades in order to optimize airflow and system efficiency.
