Electrical switching & drive systems & components


High-power AC motor range extended to 1,1 MW

Fourth Quarter 2004 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

Baldor now offers IEC frame versions rated up to 1,1 MW. These motors, designed to meet the demanding specifications of process industry users, are available in low and medium voltages.

The range of options available is extensive and includes: TEFC-packaged (totally enclosed fan cooled) IEC motors rated from 400 to 600 kW; ODP, WPI or WPII (open drip proof or weather-protected types I or II) enclosures in IEC frame sizes from 400 kW to 1,1 MW; inverter/vector IEC motors rated from 400 to 600 kW, and explosion-proof IEC motors to 260 kW.

Design and construction options include: high-efficiency windings or Baldor's Super-E premium-efficiency windings which exceed EFF1 efficiency levels; standard epoxy VPI (vacuum pressure impregnation) insulation; Baldor's proprietary inverter spike-resistant wire, form coils on medium voltage motors up to 6,6 kV, and rugged cast-iron frames on all TEFC and ODP/WPI/WPII enclosures. Custom variants can also be produced with a short manufacturing cycle, thanks to Baldor's build-to-demand Flex-Flow production process. All the motors are additionally available in NEMA versions. Baldor offers a three-year warranty on premium-efficiency motors - one of the most comprehensive assurance schemes in the industry.
