Steel band motor saves money

Baldor has launched a range of AC vector-duty motors constructed using steel band techniques. The motors have been designed for automation applications requiring precise control of speed and torque.

Designated the Baldor ZEM Series, the motors introduce a new price/performance point in the adjustable speed marketplace, offering cost savings of some 30% compared with cast iron-based products, or increased durability compared with aluminium frame motors.

The motors are available in IP23 variants, as well as the more conventional IP54, making them suitable for use as maintenance-free and/or energy efficient alternatives to DC units in sheltered operating environments.

A choice of 15 ratings is available, spanning powers from 1.5 to 75.
