In harsh industrial environments, DC motors with standard housings featuring IP54 degree of protection have a proven track record stretching back decades. They offer flexibility in terms of installation, with various designs and mounting positions supported. They can be easily combined with gearboxes, brakes and feedback systems. The axial forced ventilation makes for a large control range at full torque.
The motors feature a compensation winding. This ensures torque/current proportionality, which in the case of some motors can be maintained even at 300% overcurrent, thereby enabling dynamic positioning or short-time high starting duty, for example. In the case of IEC frame sizes 90 to 160, powers of 0.33 to 27 kW can be achieved, depending on armature voltage and speed.
