NovaTorque Inc. has introduced its next generation design of 3 HP and 5 HP PremiumPlus+ motors. NovaTorque’s Gen2.0 PremiumPlus+ brushless permanent magnet motors, driven by variable frequency drives, boast motor-only rated point efficiencies of 93.0 percent and 92.0 percent for 3hp and 5hp versions respectively, far exceeding the levels achieved with induction motors.

These motors are packaged in standard NEMA frame sizes and mounting dimensions for easy substitution. Due to their high power density, NovaTorque motors are available both in the mounting frame size typical for induction motors, as well as one frame size smaller. They are compatible with readily available variable frequency drives from most leading manufacturers, including ABB, Yaskawa, Mitsubishi, Fuji, Hitachi, Toshiba and others.
