Begin making changes to your motor online: Related Items & “Customize It” Button


Related Items

Individual motor pages, such as the DC 1000 (a PM6015 motor), have a section of the page devoted to related items. This allows you to quickly add a brake, encoder, or other motor accessory to your quote. A complete list of our related items can be found under the “Accessories” section of our product menu. For AC or Brushless DC motors, a control can be added directly from the motor page or through the “Electric Motor Speed Controls” section of our product menu. After your quote is submitted, our technical sales teams will contact you to discuss your product selection.


“Customize It” Button

On this same DC motor page, there is a button titled “Customize It.” This will take you to our online customization tool where you can make simple modifications to your motor selection such as adding a power cord, adjusting the shaft size, and altering the IP rating of the motor. Submitting a quote with motor that has been through the “customize it” process will help our sales team when assisting you with the details of your order.

Make changes to your motor using our "customize it" button, found on each product page.

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.

Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
