The MicroMAX series are inverter-duty AC motors from Marathon Electric, performance matched for DURApulse or GS series drives to provide exceptional performance throughout their rated speed range. This design features up to a 1000:1 constant torque and 2:1 constant horsepower range, rivaling much more expensive induction motors.
The MicroMAX™ motor, when
teamed up with AutomationDirect's DURApulse or GS
series drives, provides exceptional performance throughout its
rated speed range.
This revolutionary design features up to a 1000:1
constant torque and 2:1 constant horsepower range, rivaling much
more expensive induction motors.
Other design features include linear torque
characteristics, superior starting torque (up to 400%), excellent
torque-to-inertia, and smooth low speed performance.
MicroMAX AC electric motors are designed as a replacement
technology for Permanent Magnet DC (PMDC) systems, (when used
with AC variable frequency drives); as a replacement for
multi-speed motors, single phase motors; and as a variable speed
upgrade from standard fixed speed motor systems.
When compared with PMDC technology, the microMAX motor is
more efficient and produces more torque per amp.
These industrial motors do not have provisions for
mounting encoders, but are suitable for use with volts/hertz or
open loop vector controls.
Inverter Duty describes motors that are capable of
operation from a variable frequency drive.
MicroMAX AC motors start at
Constant torque operation from 0 to base speed (TENV
Constant torque operation from 1/20 speed to base speed
Constant horsepower to twice base speed (RPM)
Class H insulation with CR200 (corona-resistant) magnet
Continuous duty at 40�C ambient
Dual Mounting (C-Face with rigid base and C-Face with
removable rigid base)
Service Factor: 1.0
Utilizes double shielded ball bearings
Exxon Polyrex� EM bearing grease
Eliminates brush and commutator maintenance
UL recognized and CSA certified
Three year warranty
Replaces 90 volt and 180 volt PMDC motors (when used with
AC variable frequency drives)
Typical AC electric motor applications include: machine
tools, conveyors, packaging machines, batching machines, printing
equipment, pumps and fans
