Release of GNP Series of High-Efficiency, Sensorless Synchronous Motors
Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., announces today the sales release of its new GNP series high-efficiency, sensorless synchronous motors.
Industrial-use motors for pumps, compressors, and other equipment account for about 50% of global power consumption. Accordingly, countries around the world are speeding up efforts to implement regulations that require the use of more efficient motors. This is creating demand for drive systems that combine control inverters with motors that can operate at more efficient levels.
To comply with these new regulations and respond to customer demand for low energy usage, Fuji Electric is releasing next-generation, high-efficiency synchronous drive systems that integrate synchronous motors and dedicated drive inverters. Through these varied products, Fuji Electric is dedicated to helping its customers consume less energy in the future.
||The world’s highest level of efficiency
- These high-efficiency, sensorless synchronous motors meet IE4 standards of super-premium efficiency. IE4 standards are part of the International Electrotechnical Commission’s IEC 60034-30 international standards for efficiency.
||Compact and lightweight
- Models in this series are approximately 5% smaller in capacity and about 15% lighter than previous models in Fuji Electric’s GNS1 series.
- Models in the GNP Series can be used to easily replace currently installed induction motors, because their size is identical.
Note: More information is available on the product Web site (Japanese only): http://www.fujielectric.co.jp/products/inverter/pm/
The GNP series is comprised of 12 self-standing-type models rated at 1,800 min-1, with output ranging from 5.5 to 90 kW.
4. Examples of applications
The motors can be used for fans, pumps, compressors and other types of industrial-use machinery and factory equipment.
