Electric AC motors offer big power in small frames for efficiency and energy savings

January 26, 2009

The motors offer compact square laminated steel frames for inverter duty and vector duty applications. They are available from stock in totally enclosed fan or blower cooled and drip proof designs from 3 through 1,000 horsepower. Designed to handle the most demanding high performance industrial applications in frame sizes that are up to three times smaller than traditional NEMA or IEC motors, the motors also feature low-inertia for use on high response applications and are optimized for use with adjustable speed drives. Applications include extruders, conveyors, crane and hoist systems, converting, web processing and printing, cut-to-length applications, veneer lathes, test stands, traction duty and winders.
