January 10, 2017—
Regal Beloit Corporation will debut its new UlteMAX axial integral horsepower motor line, during AHR Expo 2017 (January 30 - February 1). The new product line will be approximately one-third the weight and size of traditional induction motors and include an integrated configurable control for fast, easy installation, operation and serviceability.

Leveraging strong knowledge and background in electronically commutated motors, permanent magnet and advanced axial flux technology, Regal developed a unique variable-speed integral horsepower motor and drive that simplifies mounting while also eliminating the need for heavy installation equipment. The UlteMAX motor and control also reduces the average motor inventory by greater than fifty percent through consolidation into easily configurable sizes ranging from 3 to 15 hp.

“Understanding the significance form factor has for our customers, we reduced the length by about seventy-five percent creating a very thin, power packed, game-changing profile,” said Howard Richardson, business leader, advanced technologies, Regal Beloit Corporation. “Equally as important is the configurability UlteMAX motors allow for in terms of speed and horsepower to cover a wide range of specifications while increasing overall
system efficiency.”

UlteMAX motor operation can be configured during installation and physical alignment is simplified by a distinctive mounting system. The motor profile has been optimized for air movement since it does not obstruct the air flow in plenum fans, harvesting more wire-to-air output. The control is also equipped with Regal innovative technology to allow operation at higher temperatures with greater reliability.
