Danfoss Debuts New Generation Of Orbital X Motors

Danfoss Power Solutions launched its Orbital X product line at IFPE, booth S80730. The new Orbital X program OMP X and OMR X motors mark the first new product introduction since Danfoss acquired White Drive Products in September 2016. The new motors will replace the current OMP, OMR, DS and DH motor models.

In comparison to existing models, Orbital X motors have up to 15 percent higher torque capacity than current OMP or OPR motors, and up to 45 percent more than current DH and DS motors. Orbital X motors also improve bearing capacity by 20 percent over DH and DS motors, said Paolo Fonio, senior director, motor sales.

Furthermore, said Paolo Fonio, senior director, motor sales.

Said the shaft seal lifetime is improved by 50 percent and the motor has a finish that meets the corrosion class C3 standard.

With the launch of the Orbital X motors, two new modular platforms will replace six existing options – one platform will have offset and end ports and the other will have aligned ports.

The different configurations ensure that one of the options will work in an OEM customer’s existing machines, for easy conversion.

Along with the physical product launch, Danfoss also debuted a line of Orbital X tools. OEMs will have direct access to the product conversion tool, which simplifies the process of integrating an Orbital X motor.

Additional features and benefits of the Orbital X motors include higher torque, stronger bearing capacity and improved shaft seal work together to increase motor function and protection.

The Orbital X line of motors are designed to covers a range of light- to medium-duty tasks in machines such as sweepers and scrubbers, harvesters, mowers and forklift trucks.
