Compact Fan Motors Offer Improved Efficiency

BORN FROM THE DESIRE TO SATISFY the application needs of axial fans, the new pad mounting range of motors from Lafert combines the robustness of the company’s asynchronous motors with the new permanent magnet technologies, which allow for reduced consumption in a compact design and without protruding elements.

Ideal for applications which require small motors without protruding elements, Lafert’s new range allows users to minimise the impact on the air flow. The mounting design uses four special feet fixed at 90° on the motor body, eliminating possible air obstruction and ensuring a reduction in energy consumption.

Lafert has developed a range of feet for pad mount fixing on IEC mechanics, from size 80 to 160, to satisfy all application needs. This special mounting configuration can be offered in both asynchronous motors in the efficiency classes IE1, IE2 and IE3, as well as permanent magnet synchronous motors with efficiency to IE4 and IE5.

Thanks to the on-demand anti-corrosion treatment, which achieves a high level of protection to ISO 12944, the motors are also well suited to use in aggressive environments.

In addition, the water slinger option – a gasket with a special shape – manages to block any splashes of water by rejecting them towards the outside, eliminating any possible infiltration.
