IC 411 as per IEC60034-6
Totally enclosed standard motor, frame surface cooled with fan
4: Frame surface cooled
1: Self circulation of primary coolant
1: Self circulation of secondary coolant
On request for variable speed application an external ventilation unit can be supplied to get the IC 416 cooling type.
Degree of protection
Motors are supplied in IP 55 as per IEC60034-5 (IP 56 or IP 65 available on request)
Mounting and positions are defined according to IEC 60034 - 7
See complete list at page 20 of Industrial motors catalogue.
Laminated and enamel-insulated on both sides to minimise eddy-current losses.
The stator winding is made of flat copper or round copper wire depending on the machine size.
The completely wound stator pack with housing is thereby impregnated in an epoxy-resin VPI from 355 frame size.
The subsequent heat treatment hardens the resin.
Up to 315 frame size the wound stator pack is impregnated by rolling deep technology.
Short circuit rotor type.
Depending on machine size, the rotor construction is either a solid shaft or welded ribbed shaft.
The rotor winding can be either a pressure die cast aluminum or a copper bar construction.
Antifriction bearings grease lubricated (ball or roller type) or oil lubricated sleeve bearing.
The theoretical lifetime of bearings, L10h according to ISO 281/1 standard, of standard horizontal construction motors, without external forces (radial and/or axial) is in excess of 50 000 hours.
On request, the lifetime of bearings, L10h can be in excess of 100.000 hours.
Sleeve bearings available as an option from 355 frame and above.
On request special bearings are designed where high radial and axial forces are applied.
The motors from 160 to 250 frame size have single screen prelubricated ball bearings (without grease nipples).
The correspondent grease life under normal operating conditions for a motor with horizontal shaft, at 50Hz and maximum ambient temperature of 40°C is
- 10 000 hours in continuous duty for 2-pole motors
- 20 000 hours in continuous duty for 24-pole motors
The motors from 280 frame size and above have regreasable bearings (with grease nipples Tecalemit UNI type) and the relative exhausted grease drainage.
Up to 315 frame size: stator is impregnated with rolling deep technology.
Starting from 355 frame size: stator is VPI treated with an unsaturated polyester amide resin which is polymerised in an oven.
(For other size is available on request)
Low and medium voltage
Stator: F class insulated with a synthetic enamel.
(H class insulation available on request)
Dedicated protective enamel is applied on the winding.
Two terminals exist for grounding, one inside the terminal box and one outside.
When installed outdoors or used for intermittent work in environments with high humidity levels, motors must be provided with holes for condensation drainage.
Motors with frame sizes from 280 to 500 have holes for condensation drainage as standard. Motors can be supplied with drainage holes on request.
Motors subject to atmospheric condensation, either through standing idle in damp environments or because of wide ambient temperature variations, may be fitted with anticondensation heaters.
Anticondensation heaters are normally switched on automatically when the supply to the motor is interrupted, heating the motor to avoid water condensation.
They are normally mounted on D-end winding heads.
Normal feeding voltage is 220//230/240V.
Motors can be supplied with anticondensation heaters with terminals in main terminal box (Opt. 108) or, with terminals in a separate terminal box (Opt. 109).
The power values normally used are shown in the table below:
|Frame size||Power [W]|
|90 - 112||8|
|160 - 180||50|
|200 - 250||65|
|400 - 450||400|
Standard magnetothermal circuit brakers are sufficient to suitably protect the motor from overloading.
Anyway the motors can be supplied with additional thermal protections with the characteristics described in the following table.
|Type||Operating principle||Active temperature [°C]|
|Positive temperature coefficient thermistors PTC||At the active temperature this device quickly changes its resistance value.||155|
|Platinum resistance thermometer PT100||Variable linear resistance with the winding temperature, particularly suitable for a continuous winding temperature monitoring.||Set up in control panel|
Motors from 315 frame size are supplied with N. 3 PTC with terminals in main terminal box, in standard execution.
Frame size from 355 are supplied with terminals in separate terminal box, in standard execution.
Motors from 160 frame size can be supplied with PT100 thermal detectors on the bearings on request.
