motor issue


Recommended Posts

good day guys,


Im planning to get a motor but cant opt between baldor and leeson so Id figure I would ask



Single HP

1725 or 1800 RPM

Three Phase

TEFC preferred

56C frame size


Is just one of the brand names desired regarding a smaller motor? Ill be shipping this to my


place back home, when I come home so Id most likely order online.

so Ive decided to go with the baldor



the WEG option I found is cheaper actually, and Im told they deal better with humidity because they are made in Brazil




Thats the cheapest place I found it online, the local distributor they sent me to quoted me more than $100.  So Im thinking about rolling the dice any buying it on the web.


If anyone has any experience buying motors online, any tips, tricks etc - Id love to hear!

Im going to use a VFD with a single phase input and three phase output - that way I can vary the speed because Im going to need to make adjustments according to the frame rate of the camera and software I program.


What I want to do is make a 360 camera like I belive the google cars currently employ.  Its going to be on my roof (I wish to be disguised as a wind directional rooster) spinning so that I can make a real time 360 degree image.


The motors that I picked out arent waterproof, do you think they will be OK on my roof if they get rained on?
