June 15, 2011 – WEG Electric has redesigned the frame of the IEEE 841 electric motor to its new W22 platform, which it says now offers extended benefits such as: outstanding reliability, optimization of energy resources, VFD operation, noise level reduction, and easier maintenance. The special electromechanical design of this line meets the demanding IEEE 841 Standard and comes with a five-year warranty, says WEG Electric. Additional features include INPRO/Seal on both ends, a balance of ISO standard G1.0 and an achieved 0.04 in/sec peak or better overall vibration.
