Premium Efficiency Motors

The IronHorse™ general purpose AC motor line now includes cast iron three-phase premium efficiency motors available in horsepower ranges from 1 to 200 hp. Motors are available in speeds of 1200, 1800, and 3600 RPM and are electrically reversible.

The three-phase industrial duty T-frame and TC-frame TEFC motors feature ribbed cast iron frames to ensure maximum cooling. They are equipped with solid full frame-length premium-efficiency-motorscast iron mounting feet, cast iron junction box with rubber gasket and rubber dust cover. Motor sizes 10 hp and lower are equipped with maintenance-free bearings. Larger motors feature NSK/NTN/SKF brand premium quality ball or roller bearings. These premium efficiency motors are CSA, CE, ISO9001 certified. IronHorse premium efficiency motors are ideal for applications such as pumps, material handling, metal and textile processing, and test stands.

Class J Fuses

The Edison JHL series of Class J fuses are now part of AutomationDirect’s line of circuit protection products. The JHL series 600 VAC/450 VDC fuses combine the performance of high-speed semiconductor fuses and the convenience of Class J branch-circuit fuses in one small package, allowing maximum protection for AC and DC drives and controllers. The extremely fast-acting fuses are also ideal for use with power semiconductor devices which utilize diodes, GTOs, SCRs, or SSRs, as well as electronic motor controllers. Available in one to 600 Amp sizes, the fuses are current limiting and are designed with no intentional time delay to open quickly on overload To see the full line of Edison JHL Class J fuses and fuse blocks, visit:
