Johnson Electric Launches Compact EC Motor for Power Tools - Best Battery Run Time and Fastest Job Completion

Hong Kong, 29 Mar, 2011 -- Johnson Electric today announced a high performance brushless motor for power tools. This Compact EC™ product line is designed to achieve the highest battery run time and fastest job completion for power tools such as drills and drivers. The Compact EC motor packs the highest power into a compact size, setting a new industry standard for power density and efficiency. This performance is achieved through innovative magnetic and mechanical designs.


The patented cooling, bearing and dust-proof designs, together with rigorous application testing, deliver the robustness required for professional construction work. This new Compact EC motor platform can be customized for various power tool applications including drills, drivers, saws and grinders.


This Compact EC motor, when compared to standard DC motors, delivers 100 percent more work from one battery charge in a 65 mm forstner drill bit application. Productivity is improved by 15 percent due to its faster drilling speed. The life of the battery is increased because the working and in-rush currents are significantly lower due to the high efficiency.


“The Compact EC motor technology sets a new performance standard in the power tool industry,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing.  “This product innovation provides our customers with a new product differentiation opportunity,” he added.
