What are BLDC ceiling fans?
BLDC fans, also known as Brushless Direct Current fans, consist of motors that have no brush and work on direct current electricity. These BLDC fans make use of permanent magnets in place of electromagnets that are used in conventional motors fans. As these fans have no brushes in them that can cause friction, there are lesser energy and heat losses as compared to electromagnets. BLDC ceiling fans have fewer parts that move and require lesser electricity and maintenance and are also known as energy-saving fans as they help save up to 60% electricity. BLDC fans are known to perform better than any traditional ceiling fan and generate minimal noise and deliver high-quality performance. Also, given the presence of thick copper wire in the winding, there are fewer chances for winding failure. While a BLDC ceiling fan may be relatively expensive as compared to a normal induction fan, it is relatively preferred as they have low power consumption
How does BLDC fan work?
A traditional fan has a motor with brushes that create friction, which powers the blades. This friction causes the motor to wear down over time. A BLDC fan uses a motor that does not have brushes and has a permanent magnet synchronous motor, which is more efficient. The motor is controlled by an electronic circuit board, which uses a sensor to detect the position of the rotor.
BLDC fan consists of a brushless dc motor which means there is no brush used between the rotor and stator for transferring electricity supply so it’s called a brushless dc motor. There is also a BLDC drive that converts AC supply to DC supply. A microcontroller is another device that receives the input data from the remote or app remote and provides the desired speed. The inverter in the BLDC fan then converts the signal.
In short, a BLDC fan works as follows, when we switch on the fan, the SMPS converts the AC supply to DC, and once the microcontroller receives the input signal from the remote control and accordingly input signal microcontroller sends the signal to the inverter then drives the BLDC motor.
Bldc fan vs normal fan which is better?
BLDC ceiling fan makes use of a super-durable magnet instead of electromagnets to direct the engine and has the following advantages
- Power utilization is one of the most incredible benefits of BLDC fans as they consume only 28-40 watts of electricity as against the 70-80 watts of a standard fan thus resulting in significantly lower electricity costs.
- AC engines power conventional roof fans whereas BLDC ceiling fans do use brushless DC engines that cut power use by 65%.
- The air delivery rate of normal and BLDC fans ranges from 230 to 260 CMM.
- Without low winding issues, BLDC ceiling fans’ thick copper cables ensure a longer lifespan.
- A Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) fan comes with no brushes and does not produce any heat, friction, or wear and tear thereby increasing the lifespan of the fan.
- Orpat Bldc fans make very little noise and are referred to as noiseless fans.
How much energy is saved if normal fans are replaced with an efficient Bldc fan?
BLDC ceiling fan is power-saving and also cost-efficient given that it can be assumed as a one-time investment with a long lifespan, less wear and tear, and a saving on the electricity bill too. A BLDC fan reduces power consumption by up to 65% and is cost-efficient. An ordinary induction motor fan consumes about 70- 80 Watts whereas a BLDC motor fan’s is 28-40 Watt consumption. An Orpat BLDC fan consumes 28 watts of energy and helps you save well on the electricity bills.
Features of Orpat Bldc Fans?
Orpat BLDC fan with remote comes with energy efficient BLDC motor and consumes 28 watts of energy. This fan also comes with a Remote & App Remote that can be used to set the fan in BOOST, SLEEP, TIMER MODE, and also adjust the fan speed. The Orpat BLDC fan has LED lights. These BLDC fans with remotes have a sweep of 900mm and the blades are made from 100% aluminum alloy and come with ZZ sleeve-type heavy-duty ball bearings for efficient performance. With winding consisting of 100% dual-coated copper wire and operating without any noise and wobble and strong air delivery, these fans not only are energy saving but also work at low voltages and help save on electricity bills. Orpat has a wide range of collections of BLDC fans online for one to check and purchase.
What is the lifespan of the BLDC motor?
A Bldc fan has a lifespan much more than a normal ceiling fan given that there are no brushes in them that cause friction, heat, wear and tear. A BLDC fan runs hassle-free for about 15-20 years with a warranty of 2 years at times.
What is the price of a BLDC ceiling fan with a remote?
A BLDC fan with remote is approximately priced between Rs. 3000 to Rs.7600
Are BLDC fans better?
BLDC ceiling fans, though expensive, are effective in the long run as they last longer, and perform better than a traditional ceiling fan. These fans have less friction, produce less heat, and cause minimum heat and energy loss. BLDC ceiling fans also consume less power, are energy efficient, and help minimize electricity bills.
How do I control my Orpat BLDC Fan speed?
Orpat BLDC fan speed can be controlled both with the help of a normal remote and even an APP remote. The app remote comes with a simple-to-use interface and functions similar to the actual remote control. One can use both the normal remote and the app remote to adjust the fan speed, along with switching on/ off the fan, its LED light, and the boost mode. One can also set the timer to the fan and its speed with a timer function in the remote.
What are the advantages of using BLDC fans?
- BLDC fans have no brushes in its motor, and come with benefits of lesser noise, reducing wear and tear, friction, sparks, heat and energy loss, and thereby lasting for a longer time than normal fans.
- BLDC ceiling fans consistently produce maximum torque to guarantee superior performance and the excellent feedback control system makes it simple to monitor and control the speed.
- The traditional fan uses an induction motor and typically consumes 70-90 watts. But BLDC fans, on the other hand, consume only 28-40 watts. Orpat BLDC fans consume only 28 watts.
