AC Motors: 115vAC/50 Hz?

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Mon Oct 04, 2010 5:22 pm

Q: Do you offer any AC motors that can run @ 115vAC and 50 Hz?

A: The short answer is no. We only rate our US standard AC motors @ 115vAC/60 Hz. We do offer Japanese standard AC motors that can run @ 100vAC/50 Hz. However, if you supply 115vAC/50 Hz to one of our 115vAC/60 Hz motors, it's still going to work (@ a higher torque and lower speed than 60 Hz operation). You would probably experience a rise in operating temperature of the motor since the capacitor we include haven't been tested with 50 Hz. Since we've never tested with 50 Hz, we would not have data on the temperature rise difference between 50/60 Hz or what capacitor you should use for 50 Hz operation. Testing would be the only way you can find out if the motor would work for you. Our 2 year manufacturer's warranty would only cover 60 Hz operation since that's what the motor is rated at.

Additional Note: we do offer both 50/60 Hz for single-phase 200~230vAC and three-phase 200~230vAC motors.
