TECO has unveiled additional models to join its established range of MAX-E design electric motors. Like the rest of the MAX-E range, the new motors meet the stringent International Electrotechnical Commission safety standards for electrical equipment used in hazardous areas.
New TECO electric motors are available from 0.18kW to 450kW on a short lead-time or up to 560kW on a build to order basis. These complement the existing IEC Ex certified TECO MAX-Ex de range of flameproof stock motors.
The new low voltage series is IEC Ex certified from frame sizes D71 up to D355 with certification also available in the following hazardous areas:
• TECO MAX-Exe; increased safety
• Exe e, Zone 1, Gb, IIC, T3, 40°C ambient to IECS60079.7: 2006-2007
• TECO MAX-ExnA; non sparking
• Ex nA, Zone 2, Gc, IIC, T3, 55°C ambient to IECS600795: 201D
• TECO MAX-ExtD; dust ignition proof
• Ex tD, Zone A21, T135°C IP66, 55°C ambient to IECS614241.1: 2004
• Certificate Nos: IEC Ex TSA12.D016X, TSA 12 0017X, TSA12.0018X
Whether modified in Australia, or supplied direct from TECO’s factory in Taiwan, TECO can now adapt the MAX-E2 or the latest MAX-E3-H66 Premium High Efficiency, Class H insulated, IP66 mining duty motors to meet the safety requirements of most hazardous areas.
Meets numerous applications
The MAX-Ex range of stock motors can be modified to meet numerous application specific requirements including foot (B3) or flange (BS-B14) mounting options, auxiliary protection such as thermistors, RTD’s for stator or bearing temperature monitoring, anti-condensation heaters, separate terminal boxes for accessories, or even special paint finishes.
With the addition of the MAX-Ex hazardous area motors, TECO now offer a complete range of electric motors combining the highest levels of environmental safety with the lowest possible running costs. With a proven and sophisticated electromechanical design and high efficiency, the MAX-E3-H66 range is perfect for the rugged conditions required by the Australian mining sector and other demanding applications.
TECO Australia supplies a complete range of electric motors, variable speed drive systems and motor controls for all industries.
