AC synchronous motors are the workhorses of sector. With synchronous electric motor technology, speed is straight proportional to AC insight frequency – for instance, at 120 Vac, 60 Hz, an AC synchronous engine will turn at 72 rpm. This speed could be varied by varying the frequency, although many applications simply make use of gearing or a belt- or chain-drive system to achieve the desired load speed.
We provide a comprehensive range of AC synchronous engine products which includes continuous torque, high torque and hybrid options to meet an array of Conveyor Chain software requirements. Our synchronous motors offer many advantages, like the ability to begin within 1-1/2 cycles of the used frequency and reach complete synchronous quickness within 5 to 25 milliseconds. They are able to also stop within 5 degrees of rotation and reverse similarly rapidly.
We offer two families of AC synchronous motors in the ST/SN Series and KS/SS Series. High performance motors in these series are offered in NEMA 23, 34 and 42 framework sizes, with two- and three-phase models available in each size. Resistor-capacitor kits are for sale to operating two-phase synchronous motors from a single-phase power source. We also offer hazardous duty AC synchronous motors, accredited to UL Class I, Division 1, Group D; UL Class 1, Division 2, Groups E, F and G; and ATEX requirements.
