AutomationDirect® adds motors to product offering

Micromax motorsCumming, GA --- January 15, 2004 --- AutomationDirect has joined together with Marathon Motors to offer Marathon’s performance-matched microMAX motors. Ranging from ¼ HP to 10 HP, the microMAX motor line is offered with dual 230/460 VAC voltages and a base speed of 1800 RPM.

When using a high-end drive, speed regulation as accurate as 0.1% is possible. The motors also feature a constant torque speed range of 1000:1 (TENV) and 20:1 (TEFC). Other design features include linear torque characteristics, superior starting torque (up to 400%), excellent torque-to-inertia, and smooth, low-speed performance. Motor estimated life before maintenance is up to 100,000 hours.

The microMAX motors are ideal replacements for PMDC (permanent magnet DC) systems, since no brushes or commutator changes are needed. The motors also offer dual mounting options, C-face rigid base and C-face round body, cooler running and lighter weight design, allowing an easy transition from PMDC. The motors also feature top-mounted conduit boxes for easy wiring and installation.

All microMAX motors carry a 3-year warranty and meet all UL, CSA and NEMA requirements. The motors range in price from $109 to $789.
