BA/BAX Series

MGM squirrel-cage motors and brakemotors deliver the best performance and reliability combined with low or no maintenance. Designed for continuous duty also under tough service conditions, these brakemotors are used wherever very fast, precise, very high cycling and safe braking are the application needs. BA series represent today’s most advanced brake motors technology.

Power Range: 0.12 HP – 100HP.
