Johnson Electric Launches Long Life Hairdryer Motors - Industry's First Motor Product Line to Address Low Weight and High Power

Hong Kong, 8 Apr, 2010 -- Johnson Electric today announced the addition of three new motors to its professional hairdryer product line.  These new motors are engineered to increase the operating life of the AC product line by 50% and the DC product line by 100%.  The new AC motors deliver more power and longer life in a higher power density package.  The new DC product is the industry’s only DC motor to deliver professional levels of torque, speed and long life in a lightweight package.


The professional hair dryer motor product line includes a range of products with speeds from 16,500 rpm to 18,500 rpm at rated operating life from 1,000 hours up to 2,000 hours.  The highest performance AC motor in the series (U5615) also delivers a 25% increase in power.  A revolutionary DC motor has been added to the product line to provide professional performance in a lightweight 115 gram package (QC3810).  This motor performance level is achieved by an innovative magnetic circuit design and a unique mechanical structure utilizing precision components throughout.


“These new motors address the most important requirements of the professional hairdryer industry, high power, long life and low weight,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing.  “The inclusion of a lightweight DC motor in this performance category provides new options to the hairdryer designer,” he added.
