The AR-U2 Motor has a rated output of ½ to 1 horsepower (hp) and is very resistant to moisture conditions. This Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) has a standard NEMA 48 frame for ease of design. The AR-U2 motor is ideal for split-system and Unitary HVAC systems.
Read why Panasonic was challenged to significantly reduce the weight of vacuum cleaner motors by 45% compared to the conventional motor design. The motor is a core component of any household vacuum cleaner unit. The motor directly affects the vacuum cleaner's suction force and total weight. We developed a motor that weighs approximately 45% less and has an external size of approximately 85% of the conventional vacuum motor. This new motor design created a significant contribution to reducing the weight and size of vacuum cleaner units.
