Omega general purpose
AC motors are made by one of
the leading motor manufacturers
for over 45 years, a world-class
accredited supplier with a long
history of quality testing procedures
and standards performed by the finest
independent testing laboratories in the
world. Our motors are made in high
quality ISO9001-certified facilities using
only the highest quality material and
manufacturing processes. All motors
are electrically tested in sub-assembly
production and again after final assembly,
and come with an ironclad 2-year warranty.
Features and Benefits of AC Motors from Omega Following are a few of the many reasons
why our AC motors provide the best combination
of quality and performance at the lowest prices.
BEARINGS There are no sleeve bearings in our entire
line of general purpose motors. We use nothing but heavy-duty oversized
ball bearings on both the DE (drive end) and the ODE (opposite drive end).
It is exactly for this reason that we can mount our motors in the "shaft up" or
"shaft down" position with no derating. A shaft slinger keeps moisture and
contaminants from the drive end bearing. And all of our AC motors have a
high tensile strength steel shaft.
WINDINGS / INSULATION All of our motors have copper windings
and are manufactured with Class F insulation. This 155°C insulation system
gives us inverter duty capability:
A. Variable Torque Applications:
(Basically, fans and blowers)
5 to 1 speed turndown permitted
B. Constant Torque Applications:
(Basically, all but fan and blower loads)
2 to 1 speed turndown
END BELLS AND FAN COVERS All of our end bells are heavy
duty burnished (polished) aluminum. Our fan covers are steel, not plastic.
JUNCTION BOXES Our large, easy-to-wire junction boxes
have rubber dust curtains designed to keep foreign particles from entry. These
covers are designed to come apart at an angle to permit ease of wiring. Most
motors are convertible F1 to F2 and all are rotatable at 90 degree intervals.
Conduit holes are provided per NPT standards.
MOTOR LEADS All of our leads are both color coded and
numbered per NEMA MG1 Standards.
NAMEPLATES Nameplates are said to be the
"Window Of Quality" of a motor. Our AC motor nameplates are stainless steel
to reduce corrosion and laser etched to provide permanent markings, and
include an easy-to-read wiring diagram.
PAINT We use an electrostatically applied, rust proof and
scratch resistant paint. The paint almost seems to become part of the
steel enclosure itself.
CERTIFICATION Our motors are CCSAUS Certified.
Note the US stamp. It means that our motor has not only passed the Canadian
Standard Association requirements, but also the USA's UL and ANSI standards,
thus giving them the highest certification standards you can have for
North America. Our certifications also include CE and of course ISO9001.
WARRANTY Our warranty matches the motors quality in that it
leads the industry in guaranteeing customer satisfaction. All of our AC motors have
an ironclad two-year warranty and it is a nameplate-only warranty. That is to say,
the customer sends us the nameplate and we send him a new motor. No paperwork
- no delay - no waiting for credit based on a factory inspection - and no questions
asked! Simply call our customer service department to obtain an AR
number for the nameplate return.
