NovaTorque (Fremont, CA) offers the Gen2.0 PremiumPlus+™ Electronically Commutated Permanent Magnet (ECPM) motors in 3hp and 5hp 2400-rpm (maximum speed 3600 rpm) models. Also available in 3hp and 5hp 1800-rpm models (maximum speed 2700 rpm), the motors utilize ferrite magnets. Driven by variable frequency drives, the motors feature motor-only rated point efficiencies of 93.0 and 92% percent for 3hp and 5hp versions, respectively. The motors are packaged in standard NEMA frame sizes and mounting dimensions. They are available both in the mounting frame size typical for induction motors, as well as one frame size smaller, and are compatible with variable frequency drives (VFDs) from most leading manufacturers.
