3. What factors should you consider while purchasing a 4kw motor?
Understanding AC and DC motors:
Before you make a purchase it is suggested to get a general understanding of the AC and DC motors.
AC (Alternating Current): They are the common motor used for many applications. AC motors are affordable and extremely universal. It comes in two types, single phase, and three phases.
DC (Direct Current): They are used in high power applications. DC motors are more efficient and have strong torque but it requires more maintenance than AC motors.
The applications of the electric motor in your company are the biggest factor to decide what kind of the electric motor you need, the AC motor or DC motor. The electric motors mainly perform two functions, constant speed, and variable speed. Constant speed remains the same and does not fluctuate and DC motors are considered best for these kinds of applications. Variable speed changes as needed. They are best for the applications like elevators and air conditioners.
Before buying an electric motor make sure to check if the motor is efficient enough for your applications. If it’s not, it will cost you money and your time. Selecting motors that fit your needs can save you money and time and also make sure to give you the desired result.
Similar to knowing the efficiency, the required torque is also important to know before making the purchase. This also helps to increase the efficiency of the motor. It is suggested to always go for a bit more torque than required to make sure the job is handled properly.
Having the knowledge of the required voltage for your application is very necessary. Some electric motors run on batteries and some of them require an outlet to be plugged in. You are suggested to consult the electrician to check if the battery can make the motor run at full capacity.
Expected Motor Life:
When buying an electric motor, it is always a good idea to know the expected lifespan of the electric motor, so you can calculate the return on investment.

4. What factors increase the efficiency of a 4kw motor?
Improving the efficiency of electric motors can reduce the potential machine failures and increase their life. It also helps in reducing energy consumption. Let’s have a look at the top 5 ways to improve the efficiency of your 4kw motor.
The common cause of electric motor failure is the low resistance, which is caused by the degraded winding insulations. This happens because of overheating, physical and corrosion damage, which leads to insufficient isolations between leakings, windings, and short circuits eventually causing motor failure. Regular inspection of this insulation to check any sign of wear can help you save your electric motor from a major breakdown and also prevent low resistance that causes machine failure.
Protection against Overload:
The over-current occurs when the current that the motor is designed to carry exceeds. It is commonly caused by the low voltage supply that leads to the motor drawing extra current to maintain the torque. It can also be caused by the short circuit and excessive voltage supply.
The installation of the over-current protection can detect the overcurrent before it becomes a major problem and protects the motor from overload. This will let the motor run at maximum efficiency at the same time reducing the chance of the breakdown.
Vibration in electric motors is caused by uneven and unstable surfaces. It can also be caused by loose bearings, misalignment, and corrosion. Monitoring vibrations is important because excess vibrations can cause permanent motor failure.
Motor analyzing tools are low-cost and ideal methods to monitor vibration levels and temperature in electric motors. They can ensure the motor is running at full efficiency and reduce the risk of motor failure.
Protect against Contaminations:
The electric motor is operated in an environment contaminated by dirt, dust, and chemicals. It is the leading cause of motor failure so it is critical to make sure the motors are protected against any kind of contaminations.
The tools, fixtures, and areas should be kept clean as possible to reduce contamination. Also, position electric motors away from the grinding machines or any other machines that create contaminations. This will help you keep the electric motor at its highest efficiency and reduce any possible breakdown.

6. What are the allowable mounting positions for a 4 kW three-phase electric motor?
A 4kW motor comes with a B05 flange design and it has can be installed to the machiner with any mounting position. Some of the installation positions of a 4kW motor are:
7. Which motor you should choose, Brushless or brushed?
When buying an electric motor, it is necessary to check every requirement and make a purchase according to the requirement of your application. The most common type of DC motor is brushed and brushless motors. We bring you the difference to help you make a better decision.
The brushed DC motor wound wire coils called the armature works as a two-pole electromagnet. The commutator is a mechanical rotary switch that reverses the current direction twice per cycle. This helps the flow of the current to the armature and makes the poles of the electromagnet pulls and push against the permanent magnet along the outside of the motor. The commutator then reverses the polarity of the armature electromagnet as its poles cross the permanent magnets poles.
It is the most simplest and commonly-used electric motor in industrial and especially low-budget applications. Brushed motors are easy to control and are also inexpensive and suitable for extreme operating environments.
In contrast, the brushless motor uses a permanent magnet as its external rotor. But it uses three phases of driving coil and a sensor to track the rotor position. As it tracks the rotor position, it sends the reference signals to the controller. The controller then activates the coil in an organized way- one phase after the other.
The brushless overall maintenance is low because there are no brushes and it operates effectively at all speeds. It has a small size and superior thermal characteristics. Brushless motors also have a high-speed range and low noise generation.

Xinnuo offers both 4kW brushed and 4kw brushless motors with high-quality steel that stands in extreme conditions and delivers high performance. Our brushless motors are used for many domestic and industrial applications such as fans, pumps, vacuum cleaners, mixers, hairdresser and many other adjustable and variable speed applications.
8. What preventive methods you should apply to your electric motor?
The maintenance of the electric motor is very crucial to guarantee the correct operation of the motor. It also prevents many faults and increases the life of the electric motor. The preventive method of maintenance helps to perform maintenance periodically in order to verify operations and perform procedures such as lubrication, revisions, and adjustments. These activities are performed as maintenance planning and should interfere little with routine operations.
Bush and Commutator Inspection
Regular maintenance helps to avoid major breakdowns in the parts of the electric motor. Look for the signs of any wear and tear because any tear can lead to commutation problems in the motor. If it looks bad you need to change the brush in order to regain the integrity of the motor’s function. Along with this, also check the commutator if it has dents, scratches, or grooves. Also inspect the rotor, stator, motor mount, and belts thoroughly and replace the worn-out parts.
Motor Winding Test
This test helps to check any anomalies or failures in the windings. If you see any burn marks, cracks or smell burning odor then conduct a mandatory motor winding test. The test involves the disassembling of the motor to determine any abnormalities. If the winding is overheated the chances of damage can be higher. Rewinding the motor and testing the wind insulation is also a critical part of the test.
Check the Bearings
In the preventive methods, checking the bearing for the noise and vibrations is also necessary as they indicate a potential problem. This might be because of poor lubrication, dirt buildup, and wear and tear. If the housing of the bearing is too hot to touch, it may mean the motor is overheating or there is a sufficient amount of grease. The requirement of the bearing maintenance can vary depending upon where the equipment is situated.
Excessive vibrations are hard to detect manually. If the vibrations are not detected on time it can lead to motor failure or a shorter lifespan of the electric motor. The common cause of the vibrations can be mechanical such as ball bearings, faulty sleeves, too much belt tension, or maybe improper balance. But sometimes it can be an electrical problem that can give rise to motor vibrations. It can be tested by removing the best or disconnecting the load and then operating. Some tests such as vibration analysis can be done through mobile instruments that help to measure the exact frequency and amplitude of the vibrations.
