ebm-papst has opened up its Centre of Learning at the company’s head office in Laverton North, Melbourne. Located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, the company showcases energy-saving and high efficiency fans and motors that are regulated through intelligent speed control technology.

At the ebm-papst A&NZ Centre of Learning customers can find out more about operations such as general energy-saving, high efficiency technology and in particular EC technology. Training in the latest motor or air movement technology is possible, which is aimed at displaying how innovative impeller design can increase energy savings and reduce noise.

Fundamentals on speed control and programming are another aspect that the engineers at ebm-papst A&NZ can teach about.

Furthermore, the training sessions can give people the opportunity to obtain CPD accreditation.

The Learning Centre is open people from various backgrounds, including product design engineers who use air movement systems in their designs or engineering consultants who want to manage efficient HVAC projects. It is also a source of training for installation engineers and HVAC contractors, as well as Building Management System specialists.

ebm-papst is committed to providing energy-saving and sustainable technology. Therefore, the company puts emphasis on helping their customers understand efficient technology, e.g. by showing how good blade design can effect performance. ebm-papst can also provide information about high performance impellers, driven by a permanent magnet motor as well as EC plug fans that are used in air-conditioning and ventilation applications. The engineers at ebm-papst can train people in integrating EC fans as a part of their high-level system control by showing how to communicate through technologies like BACnet and ModBus RTU to the fans.

Training in analogue speed control is provided through the use of worked examples and hands-on products where temperature sensors and Carbon-di-oxide sensors are used. One can also learn how to set up digital control through RS 485 by using EC Control software which enables continuous real-time monitoring of speed, power, current and temperature. The company also exhibits a fan which is speed controlled through a PDA with Bluetooth technology. Furthermore, ebm-papst A&NZ’s fan control software Fan Clone helps to configure and program multiple fans.

People who are interested in the new ebm-papst A&NZ Centre of Learning and would like to receive training in energy-efficient motor and air movement technology or obtain CPD certification should contact the head office on Phone: (03) 9360 6400 or [email protected]

Contact Profile

ebm-papst A&NZ Pty Ltd

We are the leading global manufacturer and supplier of fans, blowers and air moving products. We provide a unique range of air movement or specialist drives products. Our motor technology, engineering and logistics expertise will add value to your business.

ebm-papst A&NZ Pty Ltd was formed in December 2005 following separation from long-time partners. Since then, ebm-papst has grown and developed, and is now situated in a new head office in Laverton North, Melbourne, with offices in Sydney and Auckland.
Our products and innovations are developed in three main manufacturing and development centres, namely: ebm-papst Mulfingen (formerly ebm), ebm-papst St. Georgen (formerly PAPST) and ebm-papst Landshut (formerly mvl). At ebm-papst A&NZ Pty Ltd, we develop fan, motor and control solutions for the following applications:

• Refrigeration
• Air-conditioning
• Heating
• Ventilation
• Electronics
• Telecommunications
• Bio medical
• Automotive
• Sensors and actuators
• Prime movers

In order to achieve an aerodynamically optimum shape for our fans, we design fan blades, impellers and ducted housings to fit the application environment. From seemingly small details, such as the bladetip slip with winglets, we can achieve significant noise reduction with even higher efficiencies. We combine our expert drive engineering and aerodynamics with intelligent electronics for optimal efficiency, creating system solutions that work.

A concern for the environment underpins all that we do at ebm-papst A&NZ Pty Ltd. We have adopted the GreenTech philosophy and are committed to creating products that are sustainable and environmentally responsible. The GreenTech idea reflects our simple company principle: "Each new product that we develop has to be better than its predecessor in terms of economy and ecology." Year after year, we commit our knowhow and inventiveness to redefining standards with ever more powerful and efficient motors and fans that raise the bar ever higher.

By signing the Kyoto protocol Australia has followed New Zealand and committed its future to tackling climate change and global warming. ebm-papst has been addressing these issues globally and now supplies 36% of its turnover with EC or high efficiency, speed controllable motor technology.

Ultimately, the efficiency of GreenTech is measurable. For example by satisfying the strictest limits for energy-powered products that the EU has passed to date. These planned limits are not scheduled to come into force until 2015, but our EC fans already exceed them by far.
Moreover, we are pleased that our entire production chain regularly stands up to the scrutiny of environmental specialists. Awards such as

AIRAH Awards of Excellence
arbs Industry Awards - Refrigeration Product Excellence
arbs Industry Awards - HVAC Product Excellence
Cool World Industry Awards - Winner Excellence Award
Cool World Industry Awards - Green Innovator of the Year

clearly show that we can live up to our own high standards.

ebm-papst A&NZ Pty Ltd is committed to supporting manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand with innovative products and added value such that they can prosper in increasingly turbulent global markets.
