Brush-less DC Motors - How they work
Most of the energy efficient eco pumps on the market are brushless DC motors. These motors are similar to the kind of motor found in a power drill just a lot larger. Studies have proven that a standard pool pump motor uses approximately 60% of its power in the top 20% of it's cycle range. This means that if you slow down the motors revolutions per minute (revs) you can conserve considerable amounts of energy. While standard pool pump motors spin at 2800 revolutions per minute these brush-less eco motors can be controlled by a digital variable controller ounted on top of the motor. These controllers determine the revolution speed at which the pump motor will spin and can be .
