Supporting financial health

Healthcare providers have better things to spend money on than electric bills, yet rely on mission-critical energy users to provide care. Limiting use of medical equipment isn’t an option, so finding efficiencies in other systems is key to channeling dollars where they will add the most value.

The Turntide Smart Motor System is a drop-in replacement for the outdated, inefficient induction motors that are pervasive in RTUs and air handlers (AHUs). Replacing a rooftop unit (RTU) or air handler (AHU) fan motor with the Turntide Smart Motor System can reduce fan motor power use by 65% and pay for itself in under two years. The motor’s simple design provides added HVAC reliability and extended equipment life and RTU Failure Detection functionality provides early warning of undesirable HVAC conditions.

Minimize downtime, ensure optimal air quality and comfort, and save energy with the most efficient, reliable, and intelligent motor ever made.

SMART MOTOR SYSTEMS UPGRADE BUILDING TECHNOLOGY AND MAKE HEALTHCARE FACILITIES MORE SUSTAINABLE

  • Significantly reduces HVAC system energy in all operating modes with compelling paybacks on capital investment
  • Maintains ASHRAE ventilation standards based on real-time conditions while minimizing fan energy use
  • Responsively slows blower speeds in RTUs during unoccupied periods and during ventilation, cooling and heating
  • Replicates easily across multiple facilities with varying rooftop units as a brand agnostic motor replacement
  • Integrates seamlessly with existing energy management systems

WHY DOES THE WORLD NEED A SMARTER MOTOR?

Electric motors and the systems they drive are the single largest electrical end-use, consuming twice as much as lighting.

WHY RETROFIT WITH TURNTIDE SMART MOTORS?

  • Get 21st century RTU efficiency without replacing the whole system
  • Drop-in fan motor replacement for HVAC systems
  • Greater efficiency, serviceability, and dependability than VFDs
  • Simple design; inherently reliable
  • Integrated control and monitoring
  • Seamlessly integrate into your BMS, or easily program your own sensor controls
  • Remote updates improve the system over time
  • Compelling return on investment

The future requires smarter buildings. The Smart Motor System is taking us there.

The Smart Motor System is a drop-in replacement for the outdated, inefficient induction motors that are pervasive in millions of HVAC systems around the world. It’s the first software-driven switched reluctance motor: the most efficient, reliable, and intelligent motor ever made.
