HV Wound Rotor Induction Motors

Meeting and exceeding standards in challenging applications

The wound rotor induction motor has some distinct application advantages. Historically, it has been used for hard-to-start, high inertia fans, or where power system requirements demand a soft start. With a liquid rheostat, or a static secondary speed control, the wound rotor is an important alternative drive where limited range adjustable speed is required.

Features & Benefits:

  • Air or water cooled
  • Smooth start-up capability
  • Low starting current machines available
  • Efficiency and cost savings: Power factor correction capabilities help improve performance and reduce operating expenses
  • Reduced maintenance requirements
  • High reliability
  • Flexibility: Available horizontal or vertical. Anti-friction or sleeve bearings
