The reliability of the motor has improved with a fully potted single control board, additional transient protection (6kV), improved I/O protection and state-of-the-art electronic components. The motor also features the BlakBox® technology, an onboard memory that allows OEMs and contractors to monitor real-time performance and provide insight into the operation of the motor to maintain peak efficiency. A homeowner education kit titled “Make Yourself Comfortable” also is available.
It includes a brochure and DVD that provides homeowners with basic information about their homes’ HVAC systems, as well as answers to common questions related to IAQ. The kit, which goes hand-in-hand with its consumer website, was designed to be a tool that HVAC contractors can discuss with or leave with their customers.
