Low-vibration motor

April 1, 2010



A low-vibration version of the SD100 IEEE841 motor is equipped to surpass the vibration requirements of the IEEE Std 841 2009, which requires 3,600-rpm motors to operate with a maximum filtered vibration of .05 inch/second at twice speed or twice line frequency. Features include a rugged cast-iron frame, bearing housings, fan cover and conduit box; double-drilled feet for easy installation; six-bolt bearing housings for improved stiffness; and bearing isolators on both ends of the motor. The motor comes stock, modifiable through the manufacturer’s QuikMOD program or custom-built.
