Oriental Motor's KIIS series AC motor provides high efficiency and torque with IP66 protection.
Oriental Motor USA introduced its 200-watt (1/4 HP) KIIS Series three-phase standard AC motor with hypoid gear and terminal box, as well as high efficiency (77.8% vs. 70.3% BH Series) and optimized for inverter combination (VFDs). The new standard hypoid right angle gearhead is capable of producing up to 1680 lb-in (190 N∙m) of permissible torque and along with the new terminal box, provides IP66 protection. The motor series is available with the SOT7A torque arm, an optional accessory that can aid with the assembly and improve the life of the gearhead, the company says.
