A new, brushless AC motor with a built-in controller that is ideal for OEMs seeking a compact, integrated system for high duty cycle applications is being introduced by SEVCON, Inc. of Southborough, Massachusetts.
The Sevcon HypAC™ is a compact, brushless permanent magnet AC motor (PMAC) that features an integrated controller, accepts 24 to 80 VDC inputs, and provides output from 1 to 5 kW. Designed for products requiring a highly reliable alternative to DC systems, this integrated PMAC is IP54 sealed, provides soft-starting, and is smaller than equivalent DC motors.
Designed to operate at fixed speeds to assure consistent performance across varying operating voltages, and/or a compensation mode regulating speed relative to the applied load, the Sevcon HypAC™ accepts standard ANSI pump shaft interfaces. Applications include material handling equipment, floor care sweepers and scrubbers, AGVs, and running compressors.
The Sevcon HypAC™ is priced from $275 (list), depending upon quantity. Literature and price quotations are available upon request. Distributor inquiries are invited.
