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.
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.
