AutomationDirect has added a host of new motors from Regal Rexnord to its existing portfolio, including two new series of Marathon motors and Leeson specialty motors.

The new Marathon Globetrotter motors are high-quality 3-phase general-purpose motors that can be controlled by an inverter and are rated up to 200hp. 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.

A new series of 3-phase permanent magnet AC (PMAC) motors, the Marathon SYMAX, can only 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 10hp 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.

Leeson Washguard motors have a 1-year warranty from the date of installation (18 months from purchase), and the new Marathon motors have a 3-year warranty. These new motor additions start at $277.00 with a wide variety of accessories available, including sliding bases, gearboxes, flanges, and more.

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.
