NORD Three-phase Asynchronous Motors – Tough and Versatile

NORD produces four different lines of AC electric motors for operation in a wide variety of applications. While smooth-body motors are ideal for the food & beverage industry, two-speed motors and single phase motors provide the necessary power for machine tools, pumps, conveyor belts or fans.

Our three-phase asynchronous motors provide standard power steps from 0.16 to 75 HP and feature unmatched performance, high quality workmanship and long service life. AC motors can be combined with the full NORD gearbox and drive technology portfolio for a complete solution.

<h2>Advantages of Our Three-phase Asynchronous Motors</h2>


Our standard motors offer unmatched protection against electrical and mechanical overload.

Low Maintenance

Thanks to high quality workmanship and a simple design, maintenance costs are kept to a minimum.


NORD three-phase asynchronous motors are suitable for countless applications in a wide range of industries.<br><br>

<h2>Our Single Phase Motors: Simple Design, Reliable Performance</h2>

Our single phase motors are available in three versions: For simple applications we recommend the economical single phase motor with a Steinmetz circuit; for more demanding applications, designs with an operating capacitor or an operating and starting capacitor are the best solution.

Single phase motors are available with powers from 0.16 to 2 HP. They can be operated on 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequencies at 115V or 230V and support a wide voltage range (220V to 240V).

<h2>Two-Speed Motors: One Drive, Flexible Speeds</h2>

The NORD motor portfolio includes two-speed motors for a variety of applications which demand flexibility. These drives enable operation with two or more fixed speeds. We supply this type of motor in a 4/2 pole, 8/4 pole, 8/2 pole and 6/4 pole version and if required, with a Dahlander winding.

<h2>Smooth-body Motors for Applications Where Sanitation and Cleanliness is Essential</h2>

NORD three-phase asynchronous motors are also available in a wash-down, smooth surface version. Our smooth-body motors are very easy to clean and are ideal for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. They are perfectly suited for combination with aluminum NORD inline, right angle bevel and SMI worm gearboxes for a complete washdown solution.

Asynchronous Motors in the Food Processing Industry

Thanks to their aluminium housing, smooth-body motors are very corrosion-resistant. See how NORD smooth-body motors optimize the processes of a malting plant in the Czech Republic.
