Fractional HP Motors

Fractional HP (Horsepower) motors are electric motors that have a power rating of less than one horsepower (1 HP). They are commonly used in a wide range of applications where high power is not required. These motors are smaller in size and typically have lower power consumption and reduced energy costs compared to larger motors. Fractional HP motors are used in many industrial applications, including conveyors, pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, and small machines such as lathes, grinders, and milling machines. They can also be found in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems in commercial and residential buildings. 

Baldor-Reliance Fractional HP DC motors include both permanent magnet and wound field designs. Permanent magnet designs are available through 5 HP and wound field designs through 3 HP. All are designed for adjustable speed operation from SCR controls. Most designs are constructed so a tachometer may be added for closed loop applications and are offered with 90 or 180 VDC armatures and 20:1 constant torque speed range.
