High Starting Torque DC Motors

April 6, 2010
The IronHorse permanent magnet DC 56C-frame motor line, with a base of 1800 RPM, is designed for use on unfiltered SCR (Thyristor) type 115 or 230V rectified AC inputs, when used with an appropriate SCR drive. 
They may also be used with PWM (pulse width modulated) type DC adjustable speed drives. The motors feature totally enclosed non-vented (TENV) and totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) models. They are constructed of a rolled steel frame with cast aluminum end bell, and are available in sizes ranging from 0.33 to 2HP. Other features include linear speed/torque characteristics over the entire speed range, high starting torques for heavy load applications, reversible rotation, and dynamic braking capability for faster stops. Large brushes provide for longer brush life. All motors are shipped with an extra set of brushes included in the box. Pricing starts at $119.AutomationDirectwww.automationdirect.com800.633.0405
