The Difference Between High Temperature Motors and General Motors

A high-temperature motor is a motor that can operate normally in extremely high-temperature environments and has good stability and stability. This type of motor is widely used in metallurgy, petrochemicals, power stations, aviation and other industrial fields, and can help production companies significantly increase output, improve efficiency and reduce production costs.

Below we'll take the high-temperature motor 17HS19-2004S1-H and the general motor 17HS19-2004S1 as examples to explain the differences between the two in detail.

Different insulation Levels

Currently, the high-temperature motors sold on our official website have an insulation level of H, and the insulation level of general motors is B. For detailed information on insulation levels, please refer to this document Insulation Class, Temperature Rise and Duty Cycles of High-temp Motors.

Different Motor Materials

To customize a high-temperature motor, the temperature resistance level of the motor material needs to be upgraded as follows:

Magnet steel: The magnet steel of high-temperature motors requires the use of special alloys with high temperature resistance, such as alloys used in motors used in space or vacuum environments. However, the magnetism of magnets used in general motors will decrease in high-temperature environments.

Bearings: The bearings and lubrication systems of high-temperature motors require special design to ensure normal operation in high-temperature environments. Bearings in high-temperature motors require special grease.

Coil bobbin: The coil bobbin is an important component of the stepper motor. It is responsible for fixing and supporting the coil, and is also the main carrier of magnetism.

General coil bobbins are often made of plastic materials such as nylon and PBT. These plastic materials have a lower upper temperature limit for use. Once the ambient temperature exceeds the threshold, the skeleton will deform, crack or even melt due to the high temperature, directly causing the motor to short-circuit and cause a safety accident.

Cables: As shown in the picture above, from the appearance point of view, the cables of high-temperature motors are very different from general motors. Due to the different temperature resistance levels, the cables of high-temperature motors are made of special materials. For example, in the 17HS19-2004S1-H motor, the enameled wire can withstand the highest With a temperature of 200℃, it can maintain good electrical performance in high temperature environments.

Application Occasions
High-temperature motors are mainly used in some special industrial occasions, such as oil refineries, steel plants, glass factories and other places that require operation in high-temperature environments. General motors are usually smaller, simple to install, and easy to maintain. They are mainly used in household appliances such as washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and some small industrial equipment.
