Internally mounted design minimizes the effects of shaft currents.

Baldor Electric Company has added 28 new ratings to its portfolio of Baldor Reliance Super-E motors with an internal Aegis bearing protection ring. These new ratings consist of 1 hp to 40 hp open drip-proof motors. They also include 200-volt and 575-volt, as well as 5 hp to 15 hp completely enclosed fan-cooled designs for 200 volt.

With these latest additions, Baldor now offers 152 ratings from stock, meeting the continuing demand for inverter driven motors with a shaft grounding device factory installed. This internally mounted design minimizes the effects of shaft currents that can be present in adjustable speed motor applications. Providing the shaft ground mounted internally on the motor in industrial HVAC and pumping applications minimizes the potential for damage to the grounding device.

This complete line of motors is constructed with heavy-duty frames, cast endplates, is suitable for mounting in any position and features a Class H Inverter Ready insulation system. Baldor offers NEMA Premium efficiencies on all models, including designs for close-coupled pumps, which is crucial for total system efficiency.
