Baldor ABB offer the industry’s broadest line of energy-efficient AC & DC electric motors and adjustable speed drives. The range includes IEC & Nema motors for general purpose and specific applications together with custom built commercial motors.
General Purpose Motors
Baldor's extensive line of General Purpose motors are available in Open Drip-proof and TEFC construction in both single and three phase. Horsepower sizes available from stock range from 1/12 HP through 1500 HP. The DC range of motors include permanent magnet designs through 5 HP and wound field designs through 500 HP. Permanent magnet and wound field designs for 90 or 180 VDC have a 20:1 constant torque speed range.
Designed for "general purpose" use means that these motors can be used in applications which include compressors, pumps, fans, conveyors, material handling, machine tools and many others. Also available are stock motors that are direct replacements for the motors built in Pre-1952 NEMA frames.
Premium Efficiency Super-E AC Motors are designed to conserve energy over extended time periods. These premium efficiency designs are available in both Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled and Open Drip Proof construction. All three phase motors are Inverter Ready per NEMA Standard MG1, Part 184.108.40.206. This means the motors in 230 and 460 volts meet NEMA's corona inception voltage requirements, under this Standard, and can withstand peak voltages of up to 1600 volts. Motors having premium efficiency are also available in single phase designs.
Baldor's Washdown Duty Motors are available in single and three phase AC and in DC designs. Horsepowers range from 1/2 to 20. Designs include motors having an electostatically applied epoxy finish, paint free with major components in 300 series stainless steel, and all stainless steel. Applications include food processing, packaging, pharmaceuticals, or applications where motors are regularly exposed to high pressure wash down.
Severe Duty motors are available from 1 HP to 500 HP. These products are especially designed for those applications requiring protection of the motors from severe environmental operating conditions. A few typical applications which might require these types of motors include petro-chemical plants, mines, foundries, pulp and paper plants, waste management facilities, rock crushers, and chemical plants.
Inverter Drive Motors are wound with 200 degree C. moisture resistant ISR (Inverter Spike Resistant) magnet wire which dramatically extends the life of the motors compared to motors wound with non-ISR wire. The motors available from stock range in size from 1/3 HP to 500 HP. These motors are designed for applications where up to a 1000:1 constant torque speed range is required. Applications include conveyors, pumps, fans, metal processing, compressors, test stands, and material handling equipment.
Baldor's line of Metric Dimension Motors are designed in IEC Frames from D63 through D200L. The motors are available from stock in 50 Hz or 60 Hz. This means that replacement 60 Hz motors are readily available from Baldor to replace metric motors that have failed on imported machinery. All DC motors are designed for 180 volt input power with a 20:1 constant torque speed range. Motor construction meets IP54 and includes motors with B3 base mounting, B5 Flange mounting, or B14 Face mounting. Stock motors range in size from .18 kW to 30 kW. Typical applications for this product include pumps, fans, conveyors, machine tools, gear reducers and any other jobs that requires IEC Frames.
Baldor's line of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Motors are designed with dynamically balanced rotors for reduced vibration and quiet operation. The motors range in size from 1/4 HP to 75 HP and include heavy duty industrial designs as well as designs for commercial applications. These applications include ventilators, direct drive and belted fans, exhaust fans, unit heaters, air conditioning units, and commercial refrigeration condensers. Also included are motors designed especially for use with variable torque electronic controls that are used to conserve electricity.
Our pump line of motors includes single or three phase jet pump motors, square flange motors, close-coupled pump motors, and P-Base vertical solid shaft pump motors. The motors are stocked in totally enclosed fan cooled, open drip proof, and many explosion proof ratings. Applications for these run the gamut from swimming pool pumps to medium and high thrust in-line pumps used in water treatment plants. Horse powers range in size from 1/3 through 75 HP.
Vector Drive Motors are stocked in either totally enclosed blower cooled with an attached constant velocity fan or totally enclosed non-ventilated construction. All motors are supplied with a 1024 line count encoder. Horsepowers are available from 1 through 500 HP in NEMA frame sizes from 56C through 5009L. The motors are ideal in industrial applications where full torque is needed from base speed down to zero speed. Applications include test stands, material handling, packaging equipment, printing presses, and others requiring exact speeds and positioning.
Baldor's new Definite Purpose Commercial Motor line offers many new ratings designed for applications with low to medium starting torque requirements. The Baldor Commercial Duty Motor line brings Baldor's reputation for high quality designs to commercial applications with a cost-effective offering. This definite purpose product line is designed for certain applications requiring NEMA 48 and 56 motors rated between 1/4 and 1 HP, in both single and three phase ratings. Typical applications include: Jet Pump, Heating and Cooling, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Blowers, Direct Drive Fans, Condenser Fans, and Pedestal Fans.
Baldor's line of brake motors are available in totally enclosed fan cooled, open drip proof, or explosion proof designs, in either single or three phase. Stock ratings are available from .25 horsepower through 30 horsepower. These motors use a mechanical spring set brake with a manual release. Brake motors may be used on machine tools, conveyors, door operators, speed reducers, hoists, or any application requiring quick stops and positive holds.
Baldor's Explosion-proof motors are ideal for a wide variety of applications where hazardous fumes or dust may be present. The motors are available in three phase and single phase with ratings, in stock, from 1/4 HP through 300 HP. Designs available include standard foot mounted, C face with base and C face less base, 50 Hz and 60 Hz, Jet Pump motors, and Inverter Drive motors.
Permanent Magnet DC Explosion proof Motors are available for 1/4 - 2 HP and wound field motors of 1/2 - 3 HP for Class I, Group D and Class II, Group F & G locations with listing by both UL and CSA
