NORD Introduces New Energy-Efficient Motor with Power Range from 0.16 to 60 HP

New UNIVERSAL motor extends portfolio of asynchronous electric motors 

NORD Gear Corporation, a leader in industrial gear reducers, motors, and variable frequency drives, has announced the addition of a new energy-efficient electric motor to its line of asynchronous motors. The threephase NORD UNIVERSAL motor is available in 20 models and provides a power range of 0.16 to 60 HP.

Available in 4-pole configuration, the robust motors suit IEC frame sizes from 63 to 225. They are available in B3 foot, B5 flange, or B14 face mounting and can be supplied as NEMA C-face through 30 HP and NEMA foot mount. The motor also can be directly mounted to NORD gearboxes to provide a compact and more efficient drive solution. 

As a standard, the motor is protected to IP55, is Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled TEFC, and Class F Insulation rated. The motor is also certified to Bureau Veritas for marine and offshore applications. The 3-phase NORD UNIVERSAL motor can be used with four standard voltage supplies noted on the motor nameplate: 380V 50Hz, 400V 50Hz, 415V 50Hz, and 460V 60Hz as well as at 440V 60Hz and 480V 60Hz.

Options for the NORD UNIVERSAL motor include quick connectors, single or double protection canopies, space heater, spring applied brake, and forced ventilation. If required, the motor enclosures can also be provided in IP66 rating, which means they are dust tight and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.

These motors are manufactured in Europe and carry CE, UL, CSA, CCC, ISI and EAC certifications to serve all major markets in the world.
