JVL’s large MAC800 motor (750W) is now available in a model that offers IP65 protection. This makes the MAC800 well-suited for applications in more demanding environments common in the food processing industries.
The IP65 protection of the motor has been achieved by replacing the ventilator built into the cooling fins with large fins. In addition, a water-tight seal of the axle bearing has been achieved using an IP67 Rulon® Teflon bush. This has very low friction and requires no lubrication. The flange and shaft are made of stainless steel. Note that the expansion module used must also fulfil IP65 requirements. The motor in the picture is furthermore equipped with a brake.
