A new DR motor modular system offers many drive combinations.
Available February 1, 2010, the modular DR motor is suited for most any industry. The modular system allows you to specify exactly the options needed for any application. Users in food, beverage, water, and wastewater will find that the coating and sealing options keep these motors protected in wet environments in a wide range of temperatures. Automotive manufacturers rely on the many connector options to save time and ensure accuracy in installation and replacement. The variety of sensor and feedback options for speed, position and even brake wear are candidates for sophisticated electronic drive control systems found in packaging and logistics applications. Maintenance-friendly modular brakes, encoders, and other options make retrofits and other field adjustments simple and fast.
The DR motor meets international energy standards and comes in three efficiency levels: DRS Standard Efficiency (IE1), DRE High Efficiency (IE2), and DRP Premium Efficiency (IE3), which meets EISA 2007 and NEMA Premium® standards for the USA and other energy standards in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. In addition to energy efficiency options, the DR motor also offers other customizable options, including brake size, cost-optimized encoders, and mounting type.
Providing simple configuration and ordering, the DR motor can save space and costs due to its compact design and also promotes an extended life from an environmental and regulatory perspective.
Brakes: Inverter driven motors often don’t require large brakes. To take advantage of this, up to three brake size options are available for each motor size. The ability to specify the brake size can results in greater cost savings. Additionally, the series is equipped with a manual brake release, automatic, or lockable, that can be easily field-adjusted to one of four different mounting positions.
Encoder: The new built-in encoder is integrated into the motor, making it more compact and less expensive. The encoder is installed between the endshield and the fan and is connected at the terminal box, so it can be easily retrofitted. Traditional HTL, sin/cos, or absolute mounted encoders are also available for high-precision applications.
Mounting: Now offering new mounting capabilities, the motor can be foot-mounted and/or flange-mounted with numerous through-hole or tapped-hole configurations. A NEMA C-face flange is also available.
