SEW-EURODRIVE is excited to announce the new energy-efficient DR motor series as part of its line of highly efficient drives and gearmotors. Designed to help you save money and energy, the modular DR motor offers millions of drive combinations in three efficiency levels: standard, high efficiency, and NEMA Premium®.

The motor is specially designed for high-cycling applications, up to thousands of cycles per hour. In addition, by installing the encoders behind the fan, we have reduced the motor length, making it cost- and space-efficient.

The DR motor includes a wide range of customizable options, including:
  • horsepower – fractional to 300
  • 3 brake sizes
  • cost-optimized encoders
  • mounting type
  • options for specific industries and applications


The new DR motor series is available in standard, high, and NEMA Premium® efficiency levels.
