PM motors add 1,200 hp

Baldor Electric Co. has expanded its RPM AC permanent magnet motor line to 1,200 hp.


Baldor Electric Co. has expanded its RPM AC permanent magnet motor line to 1,200 hp.
The Fort Smith, Ark.-based manufacturer of motors, drives, mechanical power transmission products and generators says its PM rotor technology improves efficiency that translates into increased power density and synchronous (non-slip) speed performance.
The motor, available in NEMA and IEC (112, 132, 160, 180 and 280) frame sizes, provide continuous constant torque from zero to base speed for use with closed loop PM AC drives.
The latest addition to Baldor’s finned-laminated 400 frame (FL400) extends the horsepower range to 800 hp (enclosed blower cooled) and 1,200 hp using open-force ventilated construction.
