SMC Vulcan 0.5-10HP, Single/3-phase, TEFC, High Rotor Pole Switched Reluctance Motor with Variable Speed Drive

The Vulcan High Rotor Pole Switched Reluctance Motor utilizes SMC’s patented and award-winning technology to provide up to 91% motor efficiency over a wide speed range. Each motor requires and comes with a compatible SMC Vulcan Variable Speed Drive that provides complete motor control for variable speed operation. An included interface cable enables users to connect a PC or tablet computer to the Vulcan Variable Speed drive and monitor, update and tweak motor’s performance, all from a single dashboard.   These next generation Super Premium Efficiency (IE4) electric motors provide best in class performance for a wide range of use cases.

  • High rotor pole switched reluctance motor
  • 900 – 3,600rpm nameplate RPM range (full rated hp at all nameplate speeds)
  • 91% peak efficiency
  • Electronic thermal protection
  • Service Factor 1.15
  • Cast iron frame
  • Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC)
  • Insulation Class F

A compatible Vulcan Variable Speed Drive is provided with each Vulcan motor. The Vulcan Variable Speed Drive minimizes energy utilization and maintains optimal performance, all while avoiding unnecessary cooling, ventilation or heating from units. It’s key feature is continually optimizing the speed of your motor, ensuring airflow and energy efficiency, all from the cloud.   The Variable Speed Drive provides rapid start-up and variable speed control for SMC’s Vulcan Motors. It supports the equivalent of ‘Closed Loop Vector’ control with sensorless and direct-position sensing for fine-grain control of torque and speed.   SMC’s Vulcan motors must be used in conjunction with a compatible SMC Vulcan Programmable Speed Drive. Each motor requires, and ships with, it’s own Vulcan Programmable Speed Drive. Vulcan motors are not compatible with, and should not be used with, third party motor drives (VFD’s, Inverters, etc.).   All Vulcan Variable Speed Drives are programmable via a Modbus interface and come with a USB to Modbus and fully featured Windows software for simple one-time setup, monitoring, programming and updating motor firmware from any Windows PC. In addition, they may be used in conjunction with the Vulcan IoT Controller for cloud based connectivity and web-based software for comprehensive motor analytics reporting and data logging to the cloud.   REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
