Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat does SEM mean?SEM stands for Sirius- External -Motor.
To achieve optimum ventilation, a strong motor is essential but this can often result in unwanted excessive noise in the kitchen. Sirius has devised a simple yet effective way of providing a well-ventilated kitchen without the unpleasant noise: A German-made motor installed away from the rangehood that maintains a high extraction rate.What type of power outlet is required for my range hood?
Sirius Rangehoods require a standard 10AMP power point at the point of installation. A separate powerpoint is not required for off board motors, as a 7 metre cord is supplied attached to the motor.How far do I put my motor away from the hood?
Off board motors find it easier to pull air than to push it. So for optimum extraction and low noise, positioning the motor 4 or 5 metres from the hood is best.
You can place the motor as little as 2 metres away from the hood if required with a maximum of 7 metres. A minimum of 2 metres is necessary so the motor can create a powerful airflow through the duct, and so the sound of the motor is out of earshot in your cooking area.
When you are using the SEM 10 or 12, the motor is designed to be attached directly to the hood so this does not apply.
