Innovative technology for the remote analysis of mechanical motor and drive systems could mean that the future of motor tech support will be at the tip of the touch screen, according to Steve Hittmann, CBC National Product Manager for Mechanical Drive Systems.

“Motion Industries has partnered with TECO to promote the launch of the new TECO MAXe3 mobile app, geared at improving the customer experience when selecting motor and drive systems for various applications,” says Steve.

“The TECO MAXe3 app gives customers the ability to enter the requirements of an application, view specs, troubleshoot support issues, and download design drawings,” he explains. “This includes the ability to adjust motor speed, torque and power ratings on an application to explore possible motor and drive solutions.” With the ability to test applications within the app itself, end-users will be able to select the TECO motor and a drive best suited to their application, based on the relative detail that they are chasing — all with the click of a button.

“We are happy to promote this product, which compliments the TECO MAXe3 high-efficiency motor series range we have been involved in the distribution of for years,” says Steve. “The MAXe3 App is a user-friendly solution for analysing energy efficiency of electrical motor solutions in a streamlined manner. It can also stand to benefit our sales team with assisting customers in finding the right motor for the job.”

TECO’s MAXe3 motor range aligns with the Equipment Energy Efficiency (IE3) program implemented by the Australian and New Zealand governments to tighten up on energy efficiency standards for commodity equipment and appliances.

TECO is optimistic that the launch of the MAXe3 app will assist in reducing energy costs for businesses and assist in the design of more efficient energy solutions across industries.

“After months of hard work and dedication, we are delighted to officially announce the launch of our newly designed Teco MAXe3 App,” says Koorosh Faraji, Regional Manager VIC/SA/TAS for TECO Australia Electric Motor Division.

“As a market leader, it’s important for us to make information regarding our thought leadership, products, and services easily accessible for our current and prospective clients,” says Koorosh. “With the launch of the MAXe3 app, we are endeavouring to provide our clients with the most accurate, up-to-date information on our products.”

“Our goal is to provide our visitors with an easy to access portal of information to learn about TECO MAXe3 motors and drives, as well as browse information based on their individual requirements,” he says.

Among the features the new app is the ability to access datasheets for voltages and frequencies of various motor and drive products, drive compatibility, electrical and mechanical data, an energy savings calculator and troubleshooting information, according to Koorosh.

“With the launch of this app, we want to share our expertise in the field of electric motors and drives with our clients, and it is our hope that the app will serve as an ongoing TECO MAXe3 motors knowledge hub,” he concludes.

The TECO MAXe3 app is now available on both App Store and Google Play.
