3-model series including a standard type, high-efficiency type and super high-efficiency type!
A synchronous motor is a motor that incorporates a permanent magnet in the rotor.
A synchronous motor differs from induction motors in that there is no flow of secondary current, because the magnetic flux is generated from the permanent magnet, thus resulting in a higher level of efficiency with significant loss reduction.
Furthermore, a synchronous motor (type with built-in permanent magnet) and FRENIC-MEGA (GX Series) inverter can be combined to create a "next-generation drive system" to replace the widely adopted conventional combination of an induction motor and inverter.
Always advancing... to a "future" with unimaginable possibilities
Standard type Motor efficiencySame level as IE3 (premium efficiency)!
High-efficiency type Motor efficiencySame level as IE4 (super premium efficiency)!
Super high-efficiency type Motor efficiencyHigher level than IE4 (super premium efficiency)!
*IE3 is based on the efficiency class regulations of IEC 60034-30, and IE4 on IEC 60034-31.
- The induction motor efficiency values provided above are based on the values of JIS C 4210.
- The standard type synchronous motor efficiency values provided above are based on the IE3 class values of the IEC 60034-30 regulations.
- The high-efficiency type synchronous motor efficiency values provided above are based on the IE4 class values of the IEC 60034-31 regulations.
Further Energy Savings through Combined Operation!
A synchronous motor and FRENIC-MEGA GX Series inverter, equipped with our unique energy-saving control technology, can be combined to achieve further high-efficiency operation while reducing power loss.
It should be noted that for new facilities the initial investment costs are slightly higher (compared solely with the cost of an induction motor + inverter set), but the extremely low running cost of the combination allows the additional cost incurred when adopting it to be recovered in a short time.
