Grundfos' unified MLE motor is suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and deep retrofits, and features ranges of 3 to 30 hp for building services. Grundfos will make the unified MLE motor and variable frequency drive (VFD) available in multiple models, ranging from end-suction to inline to split-case pumping solutions. For decades, Grundfos has manufactured its own MLE motors to match its energy‐optimized, high performing pumps. Now Grundfos is expanding that effort to include motors sizes that are well suited to HVAC/R applications. These Grundfos products provide a systems approach, which, through intelligent technology, adapts precisely to current demand to deliver performance, energy efficiency, and reliability. The integrated, energy‐optimized MLE system consists of a sensor, system controller, VFD drive, and standard asynchronous motor all in one.
