Powered Aire has joined the battle against COVID-19. Introducing the UVC-Aire, a UVC-light-infused air curtain designed to kill airborne pathogens.


ECo Motor™ (ECE-E) Electrically Heated Air Curtains


Powered Aire’s ECo-Motor™ models feature electrically commutated (EC) motors that are significantly more energy efficient than traditional PSC motors. The motors are specifically designed for air curtain applications, with the time between motor activation and maximum speed less than 1 second.

Key Design Features

  • 18 gauge 304 stainless steel in a number three finish.
  • Heavy duty 3⁄4 HP EC motors. 1650 rpm on high speed.
  • 2:1 turndown ratio when used with optional speed dial.
  • Galvanized fans.
  • Air intake screen is perforated stainless steel with mill grain finish.
  • High efficiency discharge plenum ensures that air being discharged fills the entire width and height of the opening. This also lowers the unit’s operational sound level.
  • Directional air foil vane factory set to facilitate deflection of air stream +/-20 degrees.

Recommended Controls

  • Thermostat, if electrically heated
  • Magnetic Door Switch for activation
  • Time Delay Relay
  • Potentiometer to control motor speed
