Product Overview

This unique package features a 1HP (750W) multi-firing switched reluctance motor and intelligent controller, designed and developed by Striatech. Your options are for a NEMA 56C or B14 frame.

Unlike its competitors, this smart motor delivers an experience that suits your application through its intelligent control system. This variable speed motor communicates with its internal micro-computer, which constantly monitors conditions and reacting to its environment. This micro-computer is monitoring the rotor constantly, and when the load is put onto the spindle, more power will be provided to the electric magnets to pull the rotor around, thus maintaining a constant RPM regardless of the load. This key feature helps deliver up to a 50% energy savings over comparable motors.

Maintenance is easier on a Striatech motor. Because its windings are in the stator (rather than wrapped around the rotor), there is no centripetal force pulling the windings, and therefore no need to ever re-wind ever again. With simple construction and no permanent magnets, brushes and commutators, this motor is truly built to last.

The control system is so precise that it can also function as a stepper motor, in addition to its usual variable speed option. This motor can reach speeds from 100-6000 RPM in forward or reverse. This motor also features a built-in USB connection for easy firmware updates. It is compatible at 115 V – 240 V, 50 Hz – 60 Hz Single Phase Input.

The SKUs available on this motor include 53018 (NEMA56C) and 53019 (B14).

    Great for Pool Pump

    Posted by J. Ryder on Nov 4th 2019

    I’d been on the lookout for a switched reluctance motor and controller for a while, and was excited when I found this one. This motor is unique because of its control system and is very responsive to its environment – perfect for our pool pump. I switched it out at the beginning of the summer and couldn’t believe how efficient and effective it was at running the pump. Plus, it’s much quieter than the old motor that was in there before. It was easy to install and running it was a breeze.

    motor was absolutely perfect for breathing new life into a table saw

    I love re-purposing old junk and making more modern gadgets... and this motor was absolutely perfect for breathing new life into a table saw I found at an estate sale. The digital interface is super clean and simple to figure out, and my new saw runs like a dream -- smooth, quiet and easy. I'll definitely consider these motors for future DIY projects.
