AC Laminated Frame – RPMAC Motors by Baldor Reliance

DCS Baldor Reliance Motors 1 400

November 12, 2021


Baldor-Reliance industrial electric motors are available for most general purpose applications and processes. However, some AC Variable Speed applications require high performance capabilities including constant torque down to zero speed, wide constant horsepower range, high response applications that require low inertia rotors, or high speed capabilities. The RPM AC motor is most suitable for tough variable speed industrial applications where high performance, and power density (compact size and weight) is most important. RPM AC laminated frame motors are available in both standard induction and ultra high-density Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) versions.


  • Extensive HP range (up to 1750Hp or 1305kW)
  • Square laminated steel frame
  • Wide CT (constant torque) speed range is standard; wide CHP (constant Hp) is available
  • Power Density:  up to 3 frame sizes smaller than traditional AC motors
  • IPM rotor design delivers IE5 level efficiency  
  • Corona free insulation Class H
  • Optimum pole design
  • Thermal Protection 3 N.C. thermostats (1 per Phase)
  • Integral shaft grounding brush included as standard
  • Insulated bearing on ODE (RL5800 offers insulated bearing on both ends)

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
