56" Trinity Ceiling Fan DC Motor

DC Motor

Class leading DC motor technology provides amazing performance coupled with exceptional energy efficiency.

Utilising the latest in DC motor technology to provide a high performance and high efficiency cooling solution. The Trinity ceiling fan uses a class leading DC motor engineered with long-life components optimised for Australian power systems. The Trinity DC motor takes energy efficiency to the extreme, using only 34W of electricity on high speed and as little as 5W on low speed.

 
DC motors use pulse modulation to keep the motor turning. Essentially what this means is that it is not constantly driving the motor to spin, it does it with pulses of energy at intervals and is one of the reasons they consume less energy than AC motors.

56" Trinity DC Ceiling Fan Aerodynamic Aerofoil blades

Aerodynamic blades

Aerodynamic aerofoil blade design for powerful airflow.

The Trinity DC ceiling fan’s aerodynamic blade design utilises a varying blade pitch to provide sweeping airflow directly below the fan and sweeping outwards from the fan. Aerofoil blades are crafted from polymer (a high grade ABS plastic) that helps ensure highly efficient and quiet air delivery. Each injection moulded blade is corrosion proof, UV stabilised, easy to maintain and weather resistant. This means the Trinity DC’s blades will continue to look stunning for years to come.

 
Thanks to the aerodynamic nature of the Trinity’s blades, you can often achieve higher airflow at lower RPMs so you can stay cooler with less wind noise. Further, the polymer nature of the blades are quieter than traditional steel blades.

56" Trinity DC Ceiling Fan in Oil-rubbed Bronze

Fan Speeds - RPMS

With 8 speed settings to choose from you will always find the perfect setting for your comfort.

The Trinity DC ceiling fan includes 8 speed settings (more than double that of standard AC ceiling fans) so you have more granular control and flexibility over your cooling and comfort. On its highest setting, the Trinity DC ceiling fan spins 23% faster at 210 RPMs so you stay cool on those hot and humid Australian summer days. And the extra speed options mean you can fine tune your cooling needs with the perfect balance of speed, airflow, noise and power usage.

 
Rotations Per Minute (RPMs) shows how fast your ceiling fan spins. There are many factors that influence fan performance, so a fast spinning fan may not mean better performance for you. To learn more, read our Ceiling Fan Performance Guide.

The extra speed settings mean you will often be able to run your Trinity DC ceiling fan more efficiently by fine tuning the speed to match your daily needs. For example, you could run the Trinity DC on Speed 6 to match the 52″ standard AC ceiling fan’s RPMs, while the Trinity would only consume a third of the power (20 W compared to 60 W).

Trinity Ceiling Fan in Matt Black

Airflow Volume

The Trinity DC ceiling fan moves 36% more air thanks to the larger than average 56" blade span and variable pitch aerofoil blade design.

Utilising the latest in DC motor technology to provide a high torque motor for rapid RPMs, the all-weather polymer aerofoil blades are able to effectively sweep large volumes of air to help cool medium to large spaces. The Trinity’s aerofoil blades are made of a high grade ABS plastic that ensures highly efficient and quiet air delivery. The ABS injection moulded blades are corrosion proof, UV stabilized ABS, easy to maintain, weather resistant and long wearing.

The Trinity DC ceiling fan moves slightly more air on its medium speed (4) than the standard AC ceiling fan does on its highest speed (3). By running your Trinity fan on Speed 4 you would enjoy similar cooling benefit with the advantage of slower RPMs (less wind noise) and less power consumption (12 W compared to 60 W).

Using an example electricity rate of 26.62 c/kWh, it would cost $0.13 a day ($11.33 per quarter) to run the Trinity DC ceiling fan on high for 12 hours and low for 12 hours. By comparison, the standard 52″ AC ceiling fan would cost $0.23 a day ($20.92 per quarter). Greater savings can be achieved by tweaking your fan’s speed settings to match your needs. For example, running your Trinity on medium (speed 4) would produce the same airflow volume as the standard AC ceiling fan but reduce it’s energy consumption. Running on Speed 4 for 12 hours and low speed for 12 hours would cost $0.06 a day ($4.94 per quarter).

Efficiency ratings help identify how much air your ceiling fan moves compared to the power it consumes. A high efficiency rating means your ceiling fan will deliver more airflow for less power and is a good measurement to consider in addition to airflow volume and power usage on their own.
