HYPER-EFFICIENT HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES NEED TO SWITCH MOTOR TECHNOLOGY TO ACHIEVE BETTER ENERGY USE
Isabellenhütte supports the effort with “smart components” and a streamlined one-product solution to keep costs manageable.

CHALLENGE
Producers of large household electrical appliances (e.g. washing machines, refrigerators and freezers) identified the changing over of drive motors from AC to DC offers great energy saving potential (up to 30%). To keep costs in-line, manufacturers needed to find a way to make BLDC motors integrate better with their external control electronics.

SOLUTION
ISA-PLAN® current measuring resistors delivered outstanding component and material properties that met technical challenges in a one-component solution.

APPLICATION
Large consumer appliances (“white goods”).
