Platinum e™ permanent magnet technology provides energy savings across a broad range of fractional and integral horsepower motors. By reducing rotor losses, the patent-pending radial magnet design improves motor efficiency as well as specific output power. The compact design of Platinum e motors enables easier integration into existing machine designs and processes to optimize system efficiency.

A Platinum e motor paired with a LEESON® VSD or VSD–Plus Series Variable Frequency Drive will help optimize your mechanical systems to achieve maximum output and reduce electrical energy consumption, all to minimize cost of operation. 

Choose the right VSD Solution Matched to your speed and torque control needs.
