WEG’s New W50 Three Phase Electric Motors

July 16, 2018

WEG has released the new generation of WEG Motors for heavy duty applications. The WEG W50 motors offer not only excellent performance, but comply with the strictest efficiency and safety criteria in the most severe applications. The compact design provides high performance, while their robust frames ensure low vibration levels. 

The new mechanical concept not only optimizes characteristics like mass and length, but also offers product versatility and reduced maintenance.


– Compact and robust frame

– Low noise levels (82 dB(A) at 3600rpm)

– Optimum efficiencies due to low mechanical losses

– Innovative design of the DE endshield fins for maximum heat dissipation

– Uniform temperature distribution across the motor frame due to the exclusive internal ventilation system

– Easy access to accessories

– State of the art air deflector on the DE endshield ensuring lower bearing temperature

– Modular forced ventilation kit

– Wide range of options and accessories

– Terminal box location on either left or right side

Electrical Performance:

– Suitable for VFD applications

– High output/weight ratio

– Low starting current

– WISE® insulation system for low voltage motors

– VPI insulation system for medium voltage motors

– Insulated NDE endshield for all motors

– Wound stator winding and bearings with temperature sensors

– Low bearing temperatures ensure longer lubrication intervals and extended bearing lifetime

– Low vibration levels ensure longer motor lifetime
