AutomationDirect has added a host of new motors from Regal Rexnord to its existing portfolio, including two new series of Marathon motors and specialty motors from Leeson. The Marathon Globetrotter motors are high-quality general purpose motors that can also be controlled by an inverter. Globetrotter motors are offered in open-drip-proof enclosures and rolled steel TEFC enclosures, as well as models in a cast-iron enclosure rated for areas classified as hazardous locations. A new series of permanent magnet AC (PMAC) motors, the Marathon SYMAX, can only be powered and controlled by a VFD but offer improved efficiency even at lower speeds and partial loads, and feature a smaller footprint, when compared to standard induction motors. Also added are more options for harsh-duty motors, with Leeson Washguard SST stainless steel motors in 1- and 3-phase configurations, and the Leeson Washguard White Duck series which features a chemical resistant white epoxy finish. Leeson Washguard motors have a 1-year warranty from the date of installation (18 months from purchase) and the new Marathon motors have a 3-year warranty.
