Regal Beloit Corporation Announces Addition Of Highly Energy-Efficient VGreen Evo™ Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor To Its Century® Motors Lineup

8.27.21

BELOIT, Wis., Aug. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC), a global leader in the engineering and manufacturing of power transmission solutions and high-efficiency electric motors and systems, is announcing the recent addition of its new Century® VGreen Evo pool pump motor.

Driven by advanced variable speed technology, the new VGreen Evo motor is among the most energy efficient pool pump motors in the industry. Regal's variable speed motors are up to 80% more efficient than traditional standard single speed motors.[1] The VGreen Evo motor also enables pool pump OEMs to comply with more stringent U.S. Department of Energy efficiency standards, which became effective starting July 19th of this year.

Commenting on the recent launch, Scott Brown, President – Commercial Systems Segment said "The Commercial Pump team did a fantastic job developing and launching the VGreen Evo motor, which allows Regal to help our OEM customers meet or exceed recently implemented DOE efficiency regulations, and allows pool owners to have more energy efficient pools with improved pump functionality, while lowering their pool operating costs. A great example of how Regal is driving innovation that lives up to our business purpose of creating a better tomorrow by energy-efficiently converting power into motion."

Available in both square flange and C-Face pump-mounting configurations, with a highly durable TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) enclosure, and engineered as a direct drop-in replacement for existing induction single speed motors the VGreen Evo variable speed motor is extremely versatile and supports pool pump applications up to 2.25 total horsepower and 230/115VAC.

The VGreen Evo motor was also engineered for ease of use by designing a simplified user interface to allow for programming flexibility using a single button. The motor offers various pre-programmed variable speed operating schedules, allowing users to optimize the motor to minimize energy consumption and lower the overall cost of pool ownership.
