Kaeser's latest VFD models feature a SynRM motor for improved part-load efficiency.

This new design underscores Kaeser's continued commitment to sustainability and energy-efficient system design. The motors do not use aluminum, copper, or expensive rare earth magnets in the rotors. Instead, they are made of electrical steel and feature a special profile. The unique rotor design means these motors can run at higher speeds without additional rotor warning. This increases bearing life and reduces maintenance costs.

The motors were designed in partnership with Siemens and are designed to work with the Siemense drive technology used in Kaeser's Sigma Frequency Control (SFC) models. The drive features a specially designed control algorithm for powerful performance that delivers maximum energy savings.
