Rockwell Automation Introduces New Reliance(R) RPM III DC Motor
GREENVILLE, SC (May 10, 2002) Rockwell Automation has introduced a new motor in their RPM III DC motor product line. The Reliance C500/GS315 is designed to optimize the power output from a motor of this frame size. The global design allows for the flexibility of specifying either NEMA or IEC dimensional requirements, and the reduced footprint and lighter overall weight of this new design will be preferred by OEMs and users who are searching for smaller, lighter motor solutions.
The RPM III C500/GS315 motor features larger armature diameters to provide a significant increase in power output per frame size. The improved torque to inertia ratio will also help in applications requiring high response. The four-pole configuration in a square laminated frame provides improved commutation over a wide speed range, better heat dissipation, and a smaller footprint. Cast iron end brackets with integral mounting feet put the load-carrying members in the same vertical plane to eliminate vibration at any speed within the motor's operating range. In addition, the PLS lubrication system uses open bearings that run cooler for longer life.
The RPM III C500/GS315 motor is especially suited for the metals, paper, petrochemical, converting, printing, and crane and hoist industries. The ratings that this product acquires from previously larger motors are particularly common in extruders and ski lifts. This motor will also perform well on any web handling application that requires a combination of constant torque and constant horsepower through a wide speed range.
The product will be available in stock through 800 HP.
