3-Phase Motors Offer New Features, Efficiency

Jan. 6, 2022
Two new series of motors from AutomationDirect offer a plethora of new features.

Two new series of Marathon motors and Leeson specialty motors offer a range of new features to improve operational efficiency and maintenance. The Marathon Globetrotter motors are high-quality 3-phase general-purpose motors that can be controlled by an inverter and are rated up to 200 hp. Globetrotter motors are offered in open-drip-proof enclosures and rolled steel TEFC enclosures, as well as models in a cast-iron enclosure rated for areas classified as hazardous locations.

The Marathon SYMAX 3-phase permanent magnet AC motors only can be powered and controlled by a VFD, but provide improved efficiency even at lower speeds and partial loads. These motors are offered in sizes from 1/2 up to 10 hp and feature a smaller footprint when compared to standard induction motors.

Also added are more options for washdown/harsh-duty applications with Leeson Washguard SST stainless steel motors and the Leeson Washguard White Duck series, which features a chemical-resistant white epoxy finish. Both are offered in 1- or 3-phase configurations with available horsepower ratings from ¼ to 10 hp.
