AutomationDirect enters the general-purpose motor market with IronHorse motors sized from 1/3 hp to 300 hp.

The MTR series 56C frame motors, in one-third to 2 hp sizes, are housed in rolled steel, totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) enclosures and are equipped with removable bolt-on/bolt-off bases. MTR series motors feature large, easy-to-wire junction boxes, high tensile strength steel shafts, and cast aluminum end bells.n applications using conveyors, fans, gear reducers, and pumps, and are CE and CSA certified.

The three-phase industrial duty MTC series motors are T frame TEFC motors available in one to 300 hp sizes, and feature ribbed-design cast iron frames to ensure maximum cooling. They are also equipped with solid full-frame-length cast iron mounting feet, cast iron junction box with rubber gasket and rubber dust cover. Motor sizes 10 hp and lower are equipped with maintenance free bearings. Larger motors feature NSK/SKF brand premium quality ball or roller bearings. These high-efficiency motors are CSA, CE, ISO9001, and EPACT certified. The company says the T-frame motors are ideal for applications such as pumps, material handling, metal and textile processing, and test stands. Prices for MTC series motors start at $120.

Accessories include motor slide bases for accurate and easy motor positioning. Available in sizes from NEMA 56- NEMA 449T, these motor bases start at $10. Replacement capacitors and centrifugal switches are available for MTR single-phase motors for $12. C-flange kits, starting at $14, can be used for C-face mounting of the cast iron MTC series motors. The company says the motors are available for same-day shipping and are backed by a two-year warranty.
