PACTORQ Series brushless servomotors use an optimized circuit design to produce high torque in relatively small NEMA frame sizes. Servomotors provide up to 2,982 lb/ft peak, 1,367 lb/ft continuous torque, and up to 384 hp at 1,750 rpm. A selection guide features performance details, technical specifications, and model number codes. In addition, specifications such as the motors' ratings, characteristics, dimensions, performance, continuous power, and efficiency curves are described.
