The company’s microMAX™ line of low-hp ac inverter duty motors is designed to provide direct replacement for permanent magnet dc (PMDC) systems, says the manufacturer. Available in 1¼4 to 3 hp, these C face motors use the same mounting configuration as other PMDC systems including footprint, flange dimensions, and shaft length and diameter, says the company. According to the manufacturer, there is a potential 30% savings when the motor is equipped with a PWM scalar drive.
