The Power of the SyMAX®-i
What is the SyMAX®-i?
Marathon’s SyMAX®-i motor is a permanent magnet motor solution designed for indoor and outdoor environments. These motors can be installed as drop-in replacements for induction motors in both vertical shaft-up and horizontal orientations.
Today, Marathon builds on its legacy of innovative and efficient motor designs by joining magnetic fields and motors into a single leading technology. This allows for unparalleled power densities, unprecedented performance, and unmatched efficiencies.
It’s What’s Inside That Makes the Difference
The power of permanent magnets and Marathon’s intelliDrive technology.
A permanent magnet motor offers a simple design with powerful magnets creating a constant flux in the air gap of the motor, eliminating the need for the rotor windings and brushes normally used in synchronous motors. By combining the highly accurate performance of a synchronous motor into the robust design of a standard induction motor, the PMAC energizes directly on the stator by way of a variable speed drive. Now, what does that mean for customers? You’ll see reduced energy losses and maximization of output opportunities.
Thanks to this permanent magnet motor technology, the SyMAX®-i is capable of delivering high-efficiency outputs over a wide range of RPMs.
Marathon’s integrated drive solution, intelliDrive, elevates the SyMAX®-i motor from being like any other permanent magnet motor and created greater control of the motor’s constant torque to deliver optimum outputs.
In addition to heightened performance and control, permanent magnet motors by nature operate at a noticeably reduced noise level thanks to internal magnets and the elimination of motor wirings.
Industries of Success
Applications and industries where the SyMAX®-i thrivesThe SyMAX®-i motor has proven itself within the commercial HVAC market as a high-efficiency motor perfect for condenser fan, fan and blower, and commercial refrigeration applications.
Saving Money in the Market
How high-efficiency performance delivers maximum savings
The topic of energy efficiency is everywhere in today’s business climate. Companies are looking for ways to reduce their energy consumption without sacrificing quality in the products they implement in their applications. With new energy acts and legislation rolling out, there has never been a better time to lean into energy efficiency.
The SyMAX®-i motor offers a built-in passive power factor correction (85-89%@FL) circuitry that reduces voltage drop in the motor and save money.
