AutomationDirect has added motors from Regal Rexnord to its existing portfolio, including two new series of Marathon motors and Leeson specialty motors. The new Marathon Globetrotter motors are 3-phase general-purpose motors that can be controlled by an inverter and are rated up to 200 hp.

Globetrotter motors are offered in open-drip-proof enclosures and rolled steel TEFC enclosures, as well as models in a cast-iron enclosure rated for areas classified as hazardous locations.

A new series of 3-phase permanent magnet AC (PMAC) motors, the Marathon SYMAX, can only be powered and controlled by a VFD but provide improved efficiency even at lower speeds and partial loads.

These motors are offered in sizes from 1/2 to 10 hp and are said to feature a smaller footprint when compared to standard induction motors.

Also added are more options for washdown/harsh-duty applications with Leeson Washguard SST stainless steel motors and the Leeson Washguard White Duck series, which features a chemical-resistant white epoxy finish.

Both are offered in 1- or 3-phase configurations with available ratings from ΒΌ to 10 hp.
