Thread: Parvalux motors
01/12/2021 00:27:20

very many thanks to all for the replies and suggestions. I think I will try parvalux for a suitable AC induction motor.

Thanks again

So sorry, I seem to have left out the important bits. The motor plate is very faint and does not lend itself to photography. But here are details ; PARVALUX MPM11-0034/cont. W-2950707-11181

MOTOR TYPE: PM11 voltage supply 220/240 dc power 110watts current 0.64 speed 5000rpm

RATING CONTINUOUS insulation F thermal [TP] capacitor enclosures TENC type GB speed GB torque GB ratio

Part 1 BGM 1

this is all copied verbatum . Hz and Phase are mentioned on the plate but no values given. I purchased this motor direct from Parvalux as it appears to be the same motor that came ready fitted to my QUICK-STEP MILL, anyone familiar with these? I would realy like a much quieter motor perhaps along the lines of the one that is fitted to my Cowells 90ME lathe. Can anyone recommend a motor perhapsmwith simpler wiring!!!

Hi, please can anyone help. I have bought a parvalux motor to power my Universal Pillar Tool as described by George Thomas.I need to power this motor through a inverter or converter of some sort to allow it to run from 240v ac mains. I would also like to have control over the speed so would need a potentiometer. Also I have a no volt release switch which I would like to use.

PLEASE could someone supply me with a circuit diagram complete with all the components detailed on it, with any numbers or electrical values detailed. I have tried Parvalux but they were not forthcoming, and as I have already destroyed one of these motors I am getting desperate. Needless to say all expenses will be met. Please help

Thread: Unimat 3 vertical milling column

Now for a really daft question. Just obtained a Unimat 3 lathe in mint condition but also badly need a milling attachment for it. As they seem to as rare as hens teeth , I guess I'll have to make one. Please can anyone tell me how long this column is. Many thanks
