Our electric motors are engineered and built for performance and reliability to meet or exceed NEMA energy-efficiency levels. This robust lineup is designed to fit in a myriad of applications or industries ranging from general purpose to severe duty environments.
Regal is an industry leader in motors with over 100 years of expertise in providing innovations to the residential and commercial HVAC and refrigeration industries. Our HVAC solutions can help you reduce energy consumption, noise and improve overall air quality for air conditioning systems including: condenser fans, roof top units, cooling tower fans, crop dryer fans, ventilation fans and more.
Our broad range of refrigeration solutions can be used for reach-in and walk-in coolers, reach-in and walk-in freezers, refrigeration cases, vending machines and ice machines.
Designed for heavy-duty service, our industrial strength DC motors are known for reliability and long life in the toughest applications. Because of their high torque capabilities, DC motors can be used in conjunction with relatively simple solid state control devices to give variable speed and variable torque for low and high voltage applications. Design options include both NEMA and IEC rated motors, explosion proof motors, washdown rated motors, and permanent magnet motors.
We offer a wide array of voltages and frequencies of electric motors that meet the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for the global market. Offerings include general purpose motors, definite purpose motors, washdown motors, and motors for special applications including brake, cooling tower, crane duty, marine, and mining duty.
Gearmotors, or geared motors, are gearing and motor packages designed to work together and are engineered for durability and reliability. Gearmotors are preferred in high-torque, low-speed applications since the motor is paired with a gear reducer.
Our gearmotor options include right angle and parallel shaft designs in both Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) models that are interchangeable with most major gearmotors. AC gearmotors are commonly used in conveyors, packaging machines, mixers, farm equipment, cranes and hoists. DC gearmotors are often found in conveyors, packaging machines, spreaders and low voltage or battery-operated equipment.
Find a wide range of motor accessories, including ECM (Electronically Commutated) harnesses, Evergreen® control modules, user interfaces, programmers and testers. Mounting option accessories range from resilient bases, resilient rings, ring adapters, mounting-brackets, length adapters to mounting studs. Our large selection of fan blades includes solutions for condenser and refrigeration applications.

When tasked with choosing a new gearmotor, spending time researching and planning on the front end can lead to a big payoff in terms of overall efficiency and cost savings throughout the lifetime of the motor. Choosing a proper gearmotor will allow the application to operate at its optimal capacity and will ensure the motor lasts for many years.
The electric motor in its simplest terms is a converter of electrical energy to useful mechanical energy. While many types of motors are produced today, alternating current induction motors (AC motors) and direct current motors (DC motors) are among the most commonly used in commercial and industrial applications.
An industrial electric motor is an electrical machine that converts energy into motion. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor's magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of torque applied to the motor's shaft.
Industrial electric motors, traditionally ranging between 5 to 12,000 horsepower and frame sizes from 140 and larger, are used in a large variety of markets and industries. On the most basic level, electric motors turn electrical energy into physical motion in order to do something. They are creating the power to run conveyors, pumps, air moving systems, and many other needs in the toughest industries.
Understanding industrial motor nameplate data is the critical first step in determining industrial motor replacements. Much of the information needed can generally be obtained from the nameplate. Knowing how to read the nameplate and what the abbreviations stand for will help to ensure you select an appropriate motor replacement. It is also helpful to record all nameplate information as it can save time and confusion in the future.
As the world continues to ask questions such as “how are we using energy?” and “is this energy being used wisely?”, we are seeing increased governmental regulations, a focus on reducing strain on existing infrastructure, lower levels of fossil fuel emissions, and advances in materials and electronics. All these factors are causing the demand for Permanent Magnet AC (PMAC) motors to increase.
The amount of torque produced by an electric motor varies with speed and depends on the type and design of the motor. Learn more about the traditional types of torque speed curves found in motor applications.
Motor life expectancy is never guaranteed. Dozens of factors play into a shortened life and downtime. By keeping an eye out for these considerations, you increase the longevity of your electric motor in its application.
Standard electric motors are based on frame sizes and specifications established by the National Electrical Manufacturer Association (NEMA®*) or the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC®*). But what about those large motors required for heavy duty and extreme applications? For these applications that require industrial motors with frame sizes larger than NEMA 449 or IEC 315, we must turn to Above NEMA motors.
Washdown duty motors are constructed to withstand a wide range of environments and applications. These areas of usage have the potential for caustic cleaning and disinfectants in the pharmaceutical world to heavy wash down in milk processing environments, customers have an extensive range of needs for their motors. It can be difficult to sort through the noise of motor listings, but by focusing on these top considerations you’ll be able to narrow down your options quickly!
AC and DC drives are important electrical components that allow you to modify the level of voltage being supplied to an electric motor. Find out why they're so important and how you can modify your applications using one!
