WEG Electric Corp. introduced a line of rolled steel motors rated from .25 to 25 HP and come in both high efficiency (EPAct) and NEMA Premium models. Available in frame sizes NEMA 56 to 254/6T, the motors can be specified as foot mount, C-face or footless configuration with TEFC and ODP enclosure as standard and TEAO and TENV as options.

The motor line features a new ventilation system, foot design and more robust frame eyebolts. Electrical benefits include compatibility for VFD operation along with an oversized diagonally split aluminum terminal box which exceeds IP55 requirements. Optional features available include IP56 ingress protection, F-2 and F-3 mounts, double sealed ball bearings and re-greasable bearings on frame sizes 182/4T and 213/5T.
