The Marathon® brand encompasses thousands of products and solutions, including single phase and three phase AC motors, NEMA and IEC motors, low and medium voltage motors, PMDC motors, and radial and axial flux motors.
Marathon offers electric motors and integrated motor/control solutions with IE4 and higher efficiencies for the toughest industries in the world. We design, engineer, and build motors from 1/4 to over 5000 horsepower with voltages from 120VAC to 13.8kV. Our NEMA and IEC motors are used globally in both commercial and industrial applications.
Every Marathon motor is backed by more than 100 years of manufacturing experience, plus state-of-the-art engineering and production, along with comprehensive service, starting in the earliest planning stages of your motor. From variable speed motors used in commercial settings, to motors used for pumping, to high-speed extruders and “Mission Critical” motors used on ice breakers in the Arctic, a Marathon motor is the right choice.
Our complete line of Globetrotter® general purpose motors are built for tough applications. These motors are designed for industrial applications most commonly found in processing plants such as conveyors, pumps, gear reducers and air moving.
Our Precision Balanced 3 Phase Electric Motors XRI® Severe Duty Line is designed to be used on severe duty environments where long life and ultra-high efficiency are desired. Ranges from 1 HP - 500 HP, 2, 4 & 6 poles, 230/460 V (up to 30 HP only), 9 leads, 460 V, 575 V, 3 leads – for entire range and Bearing Current protection (BCP) and Max guard Insulation.
The Black Max® motors are designed for VFD or vector applications requiring full rated torque at zero speed using closed or open-loop controls
How Energy Efficient Regulations Can Save You Money
With motors accounting for 26% of the United State's energy consumption, the government has released new tax credits and rebates encouraging commercial buildings to make the transition to more energy-efficient motors.
How ECM Motors are Making the World a Better Place
Over the last 30 years, ecm motors have shifted from commercial furnace applications to leverage affinity laws in a range of air moving and pump applications.
The Marathon brand is applied in a multitude of applications and in an array of industries. You can find interesting solutions and innovations by clicking on the links below.
The Blue Chip XRI® process duty motors have led the motor industry for over 30 years in “Mission Critical” applications where NEMA Premium® IE3 efficiencies are required. The patented Max Guard® insulation system has stood the test of time as the choice of the design engineer when specifying variable speed motors. With unlimited lead length and protection against the potential destructive forces associated with the high switching frequencies of today’s PWM drives, you can be assured of reliable and dependable performance year after year.
