For over 100 years Marathon® has been developing innovative solutions in motor design for a vast array of commercial and industrial applications around the world. Blue Max® motors are designed for VFD or vector applications requiring full rated torque at zero speed using closed or open loop controls.

The exclusive Max Guard® motor insulation system delivers long dependable motor life under the adverse thermal and dielectric stresses imposed by the high switching frequencies associated with PWM drives. These motors are ideal for global requirements due to the wide voltage/frequency range. Blue Max motors come in cast iron construction making them suitable for various applications such as material handling, crane and hoist, textile processing, machine tools, conveyors, and other industrial machinery installed in dusty or dirty environments.

Key Features:

  • Available power rating: 1 HP to 350 HP
