Improve HVACR Applications
There are many components that make up an HVACR system; typical designs include high-efficiency motors, belt drive motors, indoor fans, refrigerant pumps, electric heaters and compressors. These components require protection and control to ensure efficient function in commercial and industrial environments.

Our product portfolio offers the solutions you need to get the most from your HVACR system, along with added benefits like inventory reduction, cost savings and increased reliability.

HVACR Applications - OEM





Soft Starter - OEM     

Soft Starters


Temporarily reduce the load and torque in the system’s power train, as well as the current surge of the motor during startup.

  High Efficiency: About 99% efficient at full operating speed and load.

  Low Heat Generation: No solid-state components are active    when an integral bypass is used; therefore, no additional heat is generated.

Improved Communications: Modbus, Profibus, Profinet,    Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet.




Provide insight into the status of the HVACR system via modern, advanced communication protocols for operational efficiencies and proactive maintenance.

Variable Frequency Drives


Variable frequency drives, or VFDs, are best used in applications where the speed of the fan or pump needs to be varied to deliver optimal air quality.

  Heat Generation: Components of VFDs are “always on” and constantly controlling frequency, making them inherently hotter than soft starters.

  Improved Communications: Modbus, Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet.




Drive an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor. They offer advanced communications protocols.

Molded Case Circuit Breakers     

Molded Case Circuit Breakers


GuardEon* by GE is the new low voltage molded case circuit breaker platform designed to work in tough, real-world applications, and is a smart, reliable and secure circuit breaker solution. GuardEon circuit breakers have global ratings for both IEC and NEMA markets, which makes them an ideal solution for the HVACR industry.

•  Inventory Reduction: Field interchangeable, upgradeable trip unit technology enables flexibility in stocking, installation and servicing. Plug & play functionality helps to configure advanced features on site.

•  Labor Cost Savings: Incorporates many electrical components found external to the breaker, such as a CT for metering. Fewer components mean less time and labor costs to build the control panel.

•  Protection of People and Equipment: Enabled with ArcWatch* selective coordination and arc flash mitigation technology.

•  Fewer Unplanned Outages: Equipped with the new PremEon* G Trip Unit with digital display to help with predictive maintenance.

  Trip Unit Toolkit: Manage your trip unit with a powerful and intuitive interface that provides simple, easy access to control functionality from startup and commissioning to maintenance and testing, directly on your personal computer.




If an overcurrent event causes a short circuit and thermal overload of the motor, molded case circuit breakers like GuardEon can help protect the motor, controls and wiring. In the event of an overspeed condition on the motor, a circuit breaker can sense this condition and alert the operator that something isn’t working properly.

Contactors, like GE’s Efficor*, make it possible to operate your HVACR system in myriad commercial and industrial environments and conditions. Because the climate for these units can vary widely due to seasonal changes, a single unit can be exposed to freezing and hot temperatures, rain and snow in a given year. Contactors and other modular components are designed to function in harsh and high-temperature environments.

  Built for Industrial Applications: Contactors like Efficor can withstand temperatures from -40 to 70 C, and their compact design helps protect against pollution and dust. Efficor has achieved global approvals including CE, CCC and UL, and certifications for marine and transportation applications.

  Inventory Reduction: Just one Efficor contactor SKU is all that’s needed for your global product lines, simplifying machine design, reducing stock costs and streamlining BOM management.

  Smart Wiring for a Secure Connection: Efficor is designed with double box terminals to provide secure and intelligent    wiring options, which ensure a secure connection preventing overheating.

•  Energy Efficient Design: Efficor units up to 40A utilize a combination or permanent magnet and electromagnet     technology to help ensure low energy consumption and high     reliability. Above 50A, it incorporates an AC/DC super wide coil     design that provides improved reliability and energy efficiency.

•  Space and Time Saving: Efficor’s compact design results in significant space savings in the cabinet. Efficor also features smart wiring and connectivity technologies that enable faster assembly. The contactors can be mounted side-by-side without derating.




Efficor’s universal service coil technology enables coverage across an industry-leading range of voltages and voltage types (AC/DC), and a voltage suppression device is automatically built in. With the industry shifting to IE3 motor applications, which require 30-50% more inrush current to start, Efficor is tested and proven to meet your control needs.

Contactors like Efficor are also able to quickly and efficiently respond to any changes in the building as sensors provide feedback to the HVACR unit. The controller determines what components to engage to maintain the appropriate air quality.

Additional Products for Your HVACR Applications



Unlike fixed speed drives, fan and pump drives are optimized for variable torque drives and can monitor energy consumption to increase energy efficiency. Fan and pump drives can also detect broken fan belts and send appropriate notifications via communications protocols.


Motor Starters - OEM


Manually switch motors on and off, and provide overcurrent (fuseless) protection against short circuit, overload and phase failures.




These components are critical to keep operators and maintenance personnel both aware and safe.



Relays and Timers - OEM


Relays and timers can efficiently and quickly respond to any changes in the building as sensors provide feedback to the HVACR unit. The controller determines what components to engage to maintain the appropriate air quality.




These components can be used to disconnect power from an entire system.


miniature circuit breakers- OEM


Because HVACR units are prevalent across every type of industrial and commercial facility, maintaining spare parts can be challenging. Miniature circuit breakers offer global ratings for both IEC and NEMA markets. They also have wider operating ranges, which reduces the number of SKUs to maintain.
