AC synchronous motors are the workhorses of market. With synchronous engine technology, speed is directly proportional to AC insight frequency – for example, at 120 Vac, 60 Hz, an AC synchronous motor will turn at 72 rpm. This speed can be varied by various the frequency, although most applications simply use gearing or a belt- or chain-drive system to achieve the desired load speed.
We provide a comprehensive range of AC synchronous electric motor products including continuous torque, high torque and hybrid options to meet an array of software requirements. Our synchronous motors offer many advantages, like the ability to start within 1-1/2 cycles of the Leaf Chain applied frequency and reach complete synchronous acceleration within 5 to 25 milliseconds. They can also stop within 5 examples of rotation and reverse equally rapidly.
We offer two families of AC synchronous motors in the ST/SN Series and KS/SS Series. Powerful motors in these series can be found in NEMA 23, 34 and 42 body sizes, with two- and three-phase models obtainable in each size. Resistor-capacitor kits are for sale to operating two-phase synchronous motors from a single-phase power supply. We also offer hazardous duty AC synchronous motors, authorized to UL Class I, Division 1, Group D; UL Class 1, Division 2, Groups Electronic, F and G; and ATEX requirements.
