Motor uses synchronous technology for energy savings

Nidec Motor Corp. has introduced SynRA, a patent-pending synchronous motor. When paired with the ID300 Perfectspeed integrated drive, the new motor is said to offer one of the highest efficiencies available for industrial and commercial pumping and HVAC equipment — with ratings at IE 4 and IE 5.

The SynRA synchronous motor provides the operating benefit of a pure synchronous reluctance motor, the company says, and suitability benefit from a simple V/Hz drive.

The unique design gives the freedom to replace components individually instead of the entire system, leading to a lower cost of maintenance, it adds. The product’s smart technology is said to result in less wear and tear on blower or pump systems by matching application demands with variable speed.

The motor’s synchronous reluctance rotor with an aluminum cage design is magnet-free, allowing for easy programming and compatibility with existing variable frequency drives.
