Zephyr has modernized their industry-leading collection of range hoods with a proprietary DCBL Suppression System that includes: direct current brushless motors, Bloom HD LED bulbs and a sophisticated, onboard computer system. The DCBL technology package has been engineered into Zephyr’s original Europa line, resulting in the Next Generation Europa Collection, which delivers the most energy efficient, ultra-quiet and high-performing range hoods available today. 

Zephyr Range Hood“Next Generation Europa raises the bar that we ourselves set more than a decade ago,” said Arcadio Lainez, Director of Marketing at Zephyr. “While the market is rushing to produce lower-priced range hoods with even fewer features, Zephyr engineers have been moving forward — pioneering new technology that dramatically increases performance and saves energy, all without ceding ground to price. With DCBL, we’re rising above industry pressures by bringing to market technology and innovation that is truly relevant.” 

Unlike traditional range hoods that operate on alternating current (AC) motors, Zephyr’s Next Generation Europa Collection utilizes direct current (DC) electricity. DC brushless motors generate more torque yet operate at lower RPMs — allowing greater air movement and virtually eliminating noise. With DCBL technology, homeowners can now enjoy an ultra-quiet range hood that moves air at working speed levels; a speed that best matches their typical, everyday cooking style. 

“Our patented DCBL Suppression System not only increases the hood’s performance, but actually allows the appliance to be up to 80 percent more energy efficient,” continued Lainez. “And the energy efficiency is augmented by our 25,000-hourlifetime, dimmable LED bulbs. In partnership with professional camera lens designers, we’ve created cool to the touch, halogen-like diodes that evenly distribute light onto the cooking surface below.” 

Zephyr’s Next Generation Europa Collection with patented DCBL Suppression System will be available on three island– mount models and four wall-mount models, starting May 17, 2011, through select distributor partners.
