DC Motors – Pump

Peerless Electric low voltage DC lift pump and power steering motors fulfill an important need in the mobile vehicle designs widely used in industrial material handling systems. Our custom designed motor /pump package (Peerless motor integrated with a hydraulic pump) provides the required power for lift and power steering functions of battery operated vehicles and machines. Peerless Electric lift pump motors and power steering motors are available for 12, 24, 36, 48, or 72 volt DC battery systems with horsepower rate from 1 thru 15 HP.

Product Inquiry Form

Lift pump and power steering motors are low voltage, multipolar design DC motors with a duty cycle ranging from 10% thru continuous duty and efficiencies in excess of 85%. Pump motors are supplied in lift pump frames D56 thru D225. For added thermal protection, Class “F” insulation is standard for all Peerless Electric lift pump and power steering motors.
Our lift pump and power steering motors are engineered to the customer’s specific mounting requirements to insure proper selection of motor – pump combination. We can supply motors in both open, totally enclosed non-ventilated, totally enclosed fan-cooled, and to type “E” and type “EE” standards of the Underwriter’s Laboratory. Other ratings and mechanical modifications can be tailored to meet various types of hydraulic pumps or any battery powered application.
