Baldor Electric's new Washdown Duty Smart Motors are rated through 10 hp for NEMA 4 environments. As part of the SmartMotor line, the new motors are completely compatible with their controls, because the control has been designed and tuned for the performance of the motors. Smart Motors also provide adjustable speed control in a much smaller space than that required by a stand-alone inverter and motor. Baldor Electric Co., 5711 R.S.
