Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, announced it will debut a series of upgrades to its JuggerNaut motor line, released under the Century brand. The JuggerNaut motor lineup features the upgraded Century JuggerNaut motor and the new Century JuggerNaut Pro motor with bearing current protection (BCP).

The Century JuggerNaut motor now functions with a non-conductive grease and features full-phase insulation. The Century JuggerNaut Pro motor with BCP, which will be released soon, will also feature MaxGuard insulation as well as carbon brush technology that minimizes induced shaft voltage. Both motors feature D-133 inverter duty wire, which helps in the reduction of bearing currents. 

“Regal continues to innovate its products to provide customers with the most efficient products on the market, with options on two levels: better and best,” said John Calloway, distribution product marketing manager, Regal. “The product level depends on a customer’s operational needs, but all upgrades enable longer bearing life and longer motor life with each option, which ultimately leads to more efficient operations by decreasing downtime.

The Century JuggerNaut motors feature:

  • Quick-connect designs
  • Automatic reset thermal protectors
  • Non-conductive grease bearings
  • Double-sealed ball bearings
  • Class F insulation
  • 70°C (158°F) ambient temperature
  • Voltage Change Device (VCD) to quickly change voltage on the spot

The Century JuggerNaut Pro motor with BCP offers:

  • 70°C (158° F) ambient temperature
  • Enclosed shaft end bracket with vented frame
  • Automatic reset thermal protector
  • External shaft slinger
  • A threaded lead exit
  • Voltage Change Device (VCD) to quickly change voltage on the spot
  • Double-sealed ball bearings 

The motor line is meant for commercial and residential fan/heat pump applications and may be installed outdoors. The motors need to be mounted within the airflow of the fan for proper cooling. All three improved motors offer upgrades that allow for longer operating life for bearings and motors as well as cooler and smoother operation.

The savings keep coming when you use a variable frequency drive (VFD) with synchronous bypass and transfer capabilities. It can help reduce up-front capital costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs in various motor-control applications. And along with the cost savings, the VFD can help you increase efficiency and achieve more flexible process control.

A VFD with synchronous capabilities allows you to operate one motor continuously with variable speed control or to start and synchronize multiple motors. It also gives you the ability to soft start large motors.

Motor Feature


As a leading manufacturer of drive technology, we also supply mechanical variable-speed gearmotors. For both series, VARIBLOC®and VARIMOT®, you can easily infinitely adjust the speed mechanically using a handwheel or remote control.

Speeds of up to 45 kW can be easily adjusted mechanically

Mechanical variable-speed gearmotors are simple yet robust drive components that represent an inexpensive alternative in many materials handling and process engineering applications. This is because you control the speed infinitely variably yourself: mechanically using a handwheel or via remote control. The process does not involve any costly control cabinets or frequency inverters at all.
