Motor with hybrid technology for energy savings
Baldor Electric’s RPM XE utilizes a hybrid motor design that combines the starting attributes of an induction cage with permanent magnets and is designed to provide substantial energy savings and performance for most centrifugal load applications. The hybrid design exceeds premium efficiency performance on sine wave power. The motor starts like a traditional design B induction motor and pulls into true synchronous speed and operates as a true synchronous machine. Laminated finned frame construction also contributes to power density and enhanced thermal performance by providing greater heat dissipation. The operating temperature is lower than typical B and F rise temperatures found in the traditional cast iron or steel band induction motors. The RPM XE platform is available in two design configurations, a power dense and standard NEMA frame.
