MAC QI 250 IN A DRIVE SYSTEM FOR A&R WINCHES

MAC QI 250

A prestigious winch manufacturer with a large experience in the supply of systems for the shipbuilding industry has entrusted VASCAT the providing of AC motors for a vessel modernisation project.

Specifically, VASCAT has supplied the 166 kW MAC QI 250 asynchronous motors to replace the old DC motors of an electric drive system for A&R winches.

Among others feature these machines provide torque up to 2400 Nm, speed up to 662 rpm (4,000 max. mechanical speed) with protection IP56 and cooling IC37 and particularly for this kind of projects: ready to work in a marine environment, built-in parking brake, reinforced encoder suitable for working in the marine environment and extensive validation tests (carried out with the presence of the client).

We have a large know how in providing CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS including MARINE APPLICATIONS.

MAC QT MOTOR IN THE NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITY AUTOMOTIVE TEST FACILITY

Single-Cylinder-And-Multi-Test-Cells-Asynchronous-Servomotor

Northumbria University commissioned our client Sierra CP to undertake the design, build and commissioning of two test cells to further support their Mechanical Engineering undergraduate and Ph.D. courses. The facility is operated by students and engineering staff and is a platform to support the engine and vehicle innovators of the future.

In this project, VASCAT was responsible for supplying its air-cooled motor MAC QT 200 mounted on custom frame designed and manufactured by Sierra CP Engineering, Regen drive on mezzanine above.

Sierra CP worked closely with the customer to determine the Critical Success Factors. Feedback included excellent noise attenuation, package constraints, ease of use and of equal importance, maintenance accessibility.

VASCAT has a large experience in providing motor solutions for testing systems and stands out for its short delivery times (even for customized motors) and a very competitive quality/price ratio.

LAUNCHING OF THE NEW MAC HS2 SERIES

MAC-HS2-Series

We are pleased to announce the launching of the new MAC HS2 series (HS stands for high-speed). These new two-pole, high speed asynchronous motors were developed specifically for dynamometer applications and extremely high quality and provide smooth operation. A typical application of the motors is in test stands for development and testing of combustion engines and assemblies. This new machine sets a standard with its low inertia and high-speed gradients, which are especially suited for highly dynamic testing of gasoline engines.

With a torque range from 300-955 Nm and nominal power between 150 kW and 450 kW, the motors of the HS2 have been designed to achieve maximum speeds up to 10,000 rpm. The motors have IP23 protection and are IC06 air-cooled (a water-cooled version is also available). The MAC HS2 machines can be customized in several ways to meet specific requirements, for example with torque flange provision, a blocking device or accelerometer provisions.

VASCAT has a wealth experience in providing motor solutions for testing systems. It can deliver products quickly – even customized motors – at a competitive quality/price ratio.
