  September 2013 – NEW! Introducing the New Standard in AC motors, the KII Series

NEW! - Our New Global Standard in AC Motors, the KII Series

KII Series AC MotorsTwice the Torque at a 26% Lower Price

Introducing our new global standard AC motor, the KII Series, equipped with a high performance gearhead which produces twice the torque of our World K Series motor at a 26% lower cost. The KII Series is our new standard in geared AC motors and is now available in imperial and metric sizes. By listening to our customers’ needs, we have created the next generation AC motor that offers higher strength gears that maximize motor performance and ease of use wiring and mounting. The KII Series is also our most competitively priced geared AC motor product.

The Performance Has Changed

The KII Series offers twice the maximum permissible torque, high strength (more than twice than that of our World K Series), long life (10,000 hours), quieter operation (6dB decrease) and high gear ratio (up to 360:1 for 6W~25 W). The KII Series is also available as a Combination Type where the motor and the gearhead are mated at the factory, removing the need for customers to assemble.

The Performance Has Changed

The new Terminal Box Type features a new style terminal box that provides ingress protection ratings of IP65 and IP54 (IP65 for 6 W~40 W and IP54 for 60W~90 W), while allowing easy access through the top without taking apart the terminal box. Along with this, the terminal box can be rotated to suit the best installation requirements.

Additionally, the KII Series has a tapped output shaft with key that allows the load to be more firmly attached to the shaft.

The KII Series is available as a Single Phase, Combination Type, Induction motor with lead wires or terminal box connection type with UL and CE approvals and available from 6 W (1/125 HP) to 90 W (1/8 HP) power output configurations.

Oriental Motor Can-Do! Ask an Oriental Motor Engineer a Question: We're Here to Help!

Oriental Motor's Engineering Team is just a click away. Send your motion control questions to Oriental Motor's engineers and we'll publish their response on our Motion Control Forum.

Below is this month's "Question of the Month"

How do I synchronize multiple motors / What products do I use?

Q: I am working on a bottling and labelling application. We are using two DC motors to run a dual belt conveyor. The dual belts carry the bottle through a coding station and it is critical that the speed of the belts match because if one belt is going faster (or slower) the bottle will rotate and it will cause an error. Right now, my DC motor speeds are not synchronizing well enough, so I'm looking for other options. What do you have to offer for my requirements, and how can I achieve this?

A: With regards to Ethercat protocol, we'll need a FLEX, Modbus/RS-485 network compatible product plus a Ethercat converter which converts Ethercat protocol to RS-485 protocol. "FLEX" products are products that accept Modbus/RS-485 communication as well as stored data capabilities.
