Capabilities

up to 40,000 kw

IDEAL's Mansfield, Ohio facility has the capability to build machines to the 40-megawatt (50,000 HP) power range depending on the rotational speed. The largest machine to ship from the factory to date is 265,000 lbs.

Voltages to 15 kv

IDEAL pioneered high voltage insulation systems and that legacy is continued today, backed by thousands of low and medium voltage machines, many in corrosive environments. 

IDEAL's Mansfield, Ohio facility has a very unique 14' (4.27m) VPI system - one of the largest throughout the Americas.

2 to >160 Poles

IDEAL builds super-slow to high-speed machines with 2 to more than 160 Poles.

high speed

While IDEAL is most known for our multi-pole, slow speed machines and benchmark setting 4-pole machines, our latest Permanent Magnet and Ultra-Performance Induction technology has found application in high-speed machines from 4,000-28,000 RPM. 

fixed & variable speed

Our motors and generators are designed for both fixed and variable-speed applications. In fixed speed, we support all starting methods, and in variable-speed, motors are designed for all variable-speed drive types and technologies.

Variable-speed generators are designed for matched systems to specific applications in renewables; wind and hydro-power, hybrid marine and land power, defense and other speciality applications.

Hermetic Motors

In the 1940's IDEAL became a pioneering maker of hermetic motors. In the 1960's the 2,000 HP barrier was broken for refrigeration compressors. Carrier Corporation acquired IDEAL in the 1970's and subsequently became part of United Technologies Corporation (UTX). UTX divested the company in the 1980's, yet IDEAL remained a leading supplier of high-horsepower, medium and high-voltage hermetic motors with marquee installations across the world and on the oceans, including air conditioning the Queen Mary II.

all cooling methods

IDEAL offers all typical air and liquid cooling methods as well as specialty, exotic and otherwise challenging cooling solutions. 

severe duty

While all IDEAL machines are built to outperform, some applications and environments require special considerations for severe duty. The more demanding the application, the more IDEAL we become backed by thousands of references.

NEMA & IEC Standard

IDEAL builds to NEMA or IEC standards.

hazardous environments

IDEAL machines are operating in every hazardous environment.

ATEX, Ex, ExN, Class 1 Division 2, H2S

brushed & brushless excitation

A hallmark of The Ideal Electric and Manufacturing Company was pioneering the move to brushless excitation technology in the 1950's. Today we uniquely offer both brushed and brushless solutions.

synchronizing systems

IDEAL offers both its thoroughly modern Digital Synchronizing System (DSS) in addition to legacy synchronizing solutions.

HISTORY

116 YEARS OF IDEAL

May 28, 1903; The Ideal Electric & Manufacturing Company is created out of the Card Electric Company in a 2,500 square foot converted horse carriage shop. The company built split frame motors for streetcars and elevators. A century of continuous innovation and corporate growth followed and in 2018 IDEAL celebrated 115 years under new, privately held, American ownership.
