Gen2.0 PremiumPlus+™ Motors can reduce wasted energy by 30-50% in air handling applications that operate up to 3,600 rpm. Also available in 3hp and 5hp 1,800 rpm (maximum speed 2,700 rpm). These motors use low-cost ferrite magnets in a flux-focusing design to deliver the efficiency of rare-earth permanent magnet motors at a price competitive with induction motors. Driven by variable frequency drives, these units feature motor-only rated point efficiencies of 93.0 and 92% for 3 hp and 5hp versions, respectively. Unlike induction motors, these units maintain high efficiency and high torque over a braod speed and load range. They are packaged in standard NEMA frame sizes and mounting dimensions for easy substitution. They are available both in the mounting frame size typical for induction motors as well as one frame size smaller.
