When it comes to technology, there seems to be no denying that smaller is better. The more advanced the world becomes in its capabilities, the more we rely on technologies to help us realize our maximum potential. More than ever, heavy industry is experiencing the same pressure to process more without compromising operational performance. Today, GE Power Conversion announces its latest induction motor leading the way in facing the challenge.
With over one hundred years of experience in developing induction motor technology, the N37 induction motor is an upgrade to the well-established N3 motor line. It builds on a time-proven design with cutting-edge mechanics in order to meet heightened customer demands on footprint and performance.
Working to decrease the component weight, GE Power Conversion achieved an induction motor design with a dramatically increased power per kilogram ratio. At a lower frame size than conventional induction motors, this compact design translates to space savings and lower weight, essential both in onshore and offshore applications. The N37 squirrel-cage induction motors operate at 50 Hz and will soon be available in 60Hz.
