Hitachi introduces the BlackMax, BlueMax and MicroMax inverter-duty motors
Hitachi America, Industrial Components and Equipment Division, introduces the BlackMax, BlueMax and MicroMax inverter-duty motors. The “Max” series of inverter/vector-duty motors meets NEMA MG1-2003, Part 31. These three-phase motors are specifically designed for operation from variable frequency PWM power and provide a generous speed range.
MicroMAX motors are designed as a replacement motor technology for PMDC systems, multi-speed motors, single-phase and as a variable speed upgrade from standard fixed-speed motor systems.
Black Max TENV motors are built for applications utilizing closed- or open-loop vector controls or volts/hertz drives suitable for machinery applications where full torque at zero speed is required. The low inertia design is engineered to provide quick response to acceleration and deceleration commands, as well as changes in direction.
Blue Max motors are used in variable frequency drive applications requiring full rated torque at zero speed, utilizing closed- or open-loop (sensorless) vector controls, or up to a 20:1 constant torque range, utilizing volts/hertz drives.
