The System consists of 4 categories of tools, many of which are optional, so your System is customized to you, and to the way you work.

UZ-1
The Basic Tool is model UZ-1 - we affectionately call it the UZI. It is able to test run a motor in one or more (up to six) speeds. It has seven LEDs and three 3-way switches. It arrives with one popular adapter, which fits the very common GE/Regal-Beloit Series 2.0 and 2.3 motors.

Adapters Adapters couple the UZI to the motor. Six different adapters were available when the tool was released, with many more to come. In fact, we’re committed to making low-cost Adapters available for virtually every new ECM motor that is introduced into the HVAC-R Industry. The PWM Signal Generator Adapter will soon be available for testing motors that utilize PWM signal inputs.

Motor Plugs
Motor Power Plugs with Harnesses are necessary when you want to test a motor out of its air handler/furnace environment. Most ECM motors have special power input plugs, so bench testing can be challenging without access to these plugs. A wide variety is available, with more to come.

Accessories
Accessories round out the System: • A 24" extension for the tool’s main harness is available (it can also be used to replace the original harness if the fan wheel gets too close!) • A rugged accessory case is available to protect your Adapter and Power Plug collection from getting damaged or lost. • Other items will be added to this category as you ask for them.

Adapters Mate the UZ-1 to a Specific Motor

Adapters enable the tool to simply “plug in” to a specific motor series, enabling the Universal Zebra to provide command signal to that motor. The UZI has a 24" output harness that has a connector that an Adapter simply plugs into. The plug looks just like a modular telephone plug, but a little larger. The other end of the Adapter has a special motor plug for that series of motor.

Each Adapter is color-coded to match the stripe on its corresponding magnetic overlay (included) for the UZI tool that explains what each switch position and LED means for that series of ECM motor.

Adapters provide the ability to turn on and run an ECM motor. The System is able to test run a motor in one or more (up to six) speeds.

Which Adapters Fit Which Motors?

We will be making Adapters on a regular basis to fit new ECM motors as they are introduced to the HVAC-R Industry. Current Adapters are listed below. Click Future Additions to see what’s coming up soon, or to suggest an Adapter, or to subscribe to e-mail notifications for new Adapter releases.

The Adapters: (Click an Adapter's photo for an enlarged picture.)

Adapter A• • • Adapter A (Part # UZHMA) This Adapter fits the common GE/Regal-Beloit Series 2.0 and 2.3 motors. It has a 16-pin motor plug (2 rows of 8 pins).

 

Adapter B• • • Adapter B (Part # UZHMB) This Adapter fits the GENTEQ 3.0 Series motors. It has a 4-pin motor plug.

 

Adapter C• • • Adapter C (Part # UZHMC) This Adapter fits the GE X-13 Motors, and many popular "X-Motor" motors. It has a 5-position plug that fits what look like 5 male quick-connects on the motor.


Adapter D• • • Adapter D (Part # UZHMD) This Adapter fits the GE/Regal-Beloit Series 2.5 motors. These motors (no longer in production) were used exclusively in Carrier Infinity and Bryant Evolution series units. NOT YET AVAILABLE.

 

Adapter E• • • Adapter E (Part # UZHME) This Adapter fits the ECM 142 Multi-Speed Signal Controlled Condensing Unit Fan Motors.


.

Adapter F• • • Adapter F (Part # UZHMF) This Adapter fits the EVERGREEN IM motors. (It does not work with the Evergreen AH motor, which is no longer in production). Click here to download special instructions for troubleshooting this motor.

 

whitespace• • • Adapter H (Part # UZHMH) This Adapter fits ECM Draft Inducer Motors made by GE/Regal-Beloit/GENTEQ. It has a 12-pin motor plug (2 rows of 6 pins). This Adapter is NOT YET AVAILABLE, but is expected later this year.
