We even supply SIMOTICS HV motors for use in temperatures as low as -55° C and for applications with rigorous vibration quality requirements in line with the API standard. With its compact, modular, high-power, specialized and ANEMA series, SIMOTICS HV is the perfect fit for every large drive application in the medium voltage range.

Our portfolio

Compact motors designed for standard and extreme protection requirements

The high voltage compact IEC motors featuring asynchronous technology cover a power range from 150 kW to 7.1 MW, in all relevant cooling types for low installation heights – in addition to classic fin cooling, also available with tube cooling and water jacket cooling. With these versions, they seamlessly cover the corresponding power and application ranges – from basic or standard up to sector-specific applications. They can also address extreme requirements with degree of protection up to IP66, in special designs up to IP68 and all types of explosion protection. The compact motors sets themselves apart as a result of its high power density and compact design that applies across the board. Further, as a result of their outstanding reliability, as well as low maintenance, they boost plant and system availability and reduce energy costs based on their high efficiencies.
