By Alyssa Dalton
February 3, 2014 – Weg Electric has introduced its new line of rolled steel motors, which come in both high efficiency (EPAct) and NEMA Premium models and in frame sizes NEMA 56 to 254/6T.
Rated from 0.25 to 25 HP, all motors in the line can be specified as foot mount, C-face or footless configuration with TEFC and ODP enclosure as standard and TEAO and TENV as options. New features include a new foot design as well as new and more robust frame eyebolts. On frames 182/4T and up, there is a single eyebolt and on frames 213/5T and 254/6T a second eyebolt is located on the non-drive end allowing vertical lifting. The terminal box also rotates, in 90° increments, for more flexibility during installation.
