Welcome to the future
of motor technology.
About QM Power
- Founded in 2006 and well capitalized by KCK Group today
- Inventors of greatest advancements in electric motor design in more than 50 years
- Q-Sync: An innovative AC-AC controller that eliminates the need for AC-DC conversion for electronically commutated motors and variable frequency drives
- Q-Mag: breakthrough brushless electromagnetic machine with both permanent and electromagnets on the stator with a magnet-free rotor
- Recognized by US Department of Energy (DoE) as a “High Impact Technology”
Products Launched: Q-Sync for Commercial refrigeration
Most efficient Motors in the Industry
- Innovative Permanent Magnet Motors which run synchronous to the “Grid frequency” saving 25-45% energy compared to ECMs
- Eliminates the power conversion to DC needed for conventional permanent magnet motors (ECMs).
- Result is a simpler reliable motor with increased energy efficiency and power factor than current state of the art ECMs.
- Launched 6-12 W and 38-50 W motor in 2015 and 2016, respectively for refrigeration display cases and walk-in coolers.
- Q-Sync 73-85% efficiency with power factor >0.85 (compared to ECMs which are 50-65% efficient and Power factor of 0.45-0.70)
Using Q-Sync technology instead of Electronically Commutated Motors (ECMs) would be the energy equivalent of taking ONE of every TWO motors off the grid. Using Q-Sync technology instead of shaded pole motors would be the equivalent of taking FOUR of every FIVE motors off the grid.
Dr. Bryan Becker, Former ASHRAE Technical Committee Chairman, Refrigeration Applications for Foods and Beverages
Using Q-Sync in HVACR fan applications could reduce source energy consumption by as much as one quad or more [annually], with proportional environmental benefits.
