Bauer Gear Motor, an Altra Industrial Motion Company (South Beloit, IL), offers a range of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM). The motors employ a rotor design that integrates embedded permanent magnets made from the rareearth material, instead of the squirrel-cage rotor found in induction motors. The motors offer high efficiency under rated operating conditions and high power density. They are available in ventilated and nonventilated configurations across the power range from 0.55kW to 15kW. They operate on 380V to 500V power supplies, and are rated for inverter duty. Applications include fans, pumps, and compressors; and constant torque applications such as elevators and conveyors.
