I have recently gotten an additional line of 3 phase motors that have some interesting features.
The new motors have a finned cast aluminum body. This will give better cooling of the motor.
The feet are removable and can be placed anywhere around the body, or not at all. This is nice because with the rolled steel motors the foot is welded on the body. Sometimes the conduit box (wiring box) is in the way or is in an inconvenient position. With the re-locatable feet the conduit box can be rotated to a different position in relation to the mounting. Also the conduit box is rotatable 90 degrees in either direction so the entry location of the wires can be changed.
These motors are a little bit more expensive but the added features may be worth considering. Because the aluminum motors are lighter I have been able to continue offering free shipping in the lower 48 United States and hold the cost of the more expensive motors down to a minimum. There is also a shipping location in Canada so we can avoid the very expensive shipping costs and customs issues. Here is a comparison of the two motors:
Three Phase motors
When using a VFD it is necessary to use a 3 phase motor. The VFD uses standard household single phase power either 115v or 230v and converts it to 3 phase 230v power.
1 hp 1800 rpm 3 phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
1.5 hp 1800 rpm 3 phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
2 hp 1800 rpm 3 phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
$298.70 $ 298.50
3 hp 3600 rpm 3 phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
Single Phase Motors
1 hp 1800 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
1.5 hp 1800 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
2 hp 1800 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
1 hp 3600 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
1.5 hp 3600 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
2 hp 3600 rpm single phase TEFC 5/8” shaft
All of the motors previously offered in the rolled steel body are still available and there are many more motors available in the cast aluminum. If you have a need please contact me for more information. All motors are still offered with free shipping in the lower 48 United States. Call or e-mail for shipping to other locations.
Please note that all sales are FOB the shipper. If you want your shipment insured be sure and ask that it be added to the shipping costs.
