As energy costs climb, the need for the highest level of energy-efficient pumping equipment has never been more critical. Nidec Motor Corp. has responded to that demand by introducing SynRA™, an innovative, patent-pending synchronous motor.
The SynRA variable frequency motor provides the starting benefit of an induction motor, the operating benefit of a pure synchronous reluctance motor, and suitability benefit from the simple volts/hz drive.
When paired with the ID300 Perfectspeed™ integrated drive, the new motor offers high efficiencies for industrial and commercial pumping and Hvac equipment – with ratings at IE 4 and IE 5.
In addition to significant energy savings, this new technology from Nidec’s U.S. Motors® brand offers the advantage of easy motor replacement, without having to install an entirely new system and controls, saving time and money.
The unique design gives the freedom to replace components individually instead of the entire system, leading to a lower cost of maintenance
The synchronous reluctance rotor with an aluminum cage design is magnet-free, allowing for easy programming and compatibility with existing Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). The SynRA™ motor is also available already fully integrated with Nidec’s ID300 PerfectSpeed.
