FAQ Synchronous motors

In contrast to asynchronous motors, synchronous motors have rotors with permanent magnets. This results in different characteristics:

  • more efficiency
  •  constant speed (independent of load fluctuation)
  • extremely short start-up and stopping times
  • self-holding torque in powerless state

Generally, windings for all voltages between 12 V~ and 3×500 V~ are available. Windings for 230 V~, 115 V~, 24 V~, 3×400 V~, and 3×230 V (frequency inverter type) are standard.

Capacitors are only needed for alternating current motors. The winding is split into the main and auxiliary phases. The main phase is directly connected to the mains power supply. In contrast to this, a capacitor is located downstream from the auxiliary phase to achieve the required phase shift and thus build up a rotating field. Three phase motors do not need a capacitor.

The speed of a synchronous drive depends entirely on the mains frequency and does not depend on the load or voltage. Frequency converters allow ROBASE motors to be run between 7 and 70 Hz (ROSYNC and ROSLYDE: 1-70 Hz). We recommend ROSYNC, ROSLYDE, and 6-pole ROBASE motors for use with frequency converters.

The speed of a synchronous drive depends entirely on the mains frequency and does not depend on the load or voltage. Frequency converters allow ROBASE motors to be run between 7 and 70 Hz (ROSYNC and ROSLYDE: 1-70 Hz). We recommend ROSYNC, ROSLYDE, and 6-pole ROBASE motors for use with frequency converters.

Short-time blocking of the drive does not cause thermal damage to the winding. You should still attempt to avoid blocking to avoid damage to the gearbox.

The DIN VDE 0530, EN 60529, Part 5 standard defines protection classes for housings (this does not apply to the output shaft) for rotating field electrical devices. The protection class is indicated by the IP tag and two numbers. Our drives are compliant to IP40 by default. The terminal box version is optionally available to the IP55 protection standard.

Our motors are designed for continuous operation by default. The winding can be reinforced to provide more output power. At the same time, this reduces the permissible duty cycle. We provide windings for S2 and S3 operations. Always keep to the duty cycle indicated on the type plate. Failure to do so will cause overheating and can permanently damage the drive. Additionally, you can get a motor with a built-in thermal protection switch.

Our drives are designed for ambient temperatures between -25°C and +50°C and  planetary gears for temperatures between -10°C and +50°C. Please consult us for temperatures outside these ranges.

Our motors are designed to insulation class F for a maximum winding temperature of 155°C at a maximum environmental temperature of 50°C. The surface temperature of the drive can be hot for longer periods of operation without causing damage to the drive. The wire we use for the windings is designed to resist temperatures of up to 180°C.

CAUTION: Do not exceed the specified duty times with motors designed for a short duty cycle!

Our synchronous motors can be run as stepper motors assuming modified inductor controls. Our 6-pole motors are best suited due to their favourable resonance characteristic.
