Weg is a leading manufacturer of general-purpose and industrial-grade motors and drives ideal for applications in the oil & gas, food & beverage, automotive and marine industries. The Weg Motors catalogue comprises AC / DC, close-coupled pump, induction, hazardous location, stationary power tool, three-phase & air compressor motors, in addition to manual motor switches and starters. Designed in compliance with EISA 2007 regulations & NEMA energy efficiency standards, these motors offer excellent reliability, high performance and longer service life. Weg explosion-proof motors are designed to provide complete thermal protection and are therefore suitable for use in hazardous locations. These electric motors feature a squirrel cage rotor design for providing constant speed regulation and Class F insulation capable of resisting winding temperatures up to 180 degrees Celsius.To control the speed of AC induction motors without affecting electric consumption torque, impedance and magnetic flux, the brand's variable frequency drives are ideal for pumps, compressors and load-lifting machines. For applications requiring high inertia and short deceleration, the Optimal Braking facility of these Weg VFDs delivers the rated torque by handling a large amount of energy and without the use of additional resistors. Choose from a wide range of these motors and drives on Raptor Supplies.
