Perfect Fit “Drop-In Replacements”


HECO can match a replacement motor perfectly!

Ever had an issue finding drop-in replacement electric motors?

Did you buy a replacement and it didn’t fit? Or didn’t operate like the original? Or it didn’t drive the load?

It is far too common that someone looks for a replacement motor and either buys the wrong one or can’t find one that does what the original did. HECO is here to change that.

From a simple NEMA T-Frame motor replacement to a complex Above-NEMA, high voltage motor, we supply perfect fit “drop-in” replacements.

Our Replacement Motor Matching Process

We have a two-sided process that includes an on-site assessment and evaluation to ensure what we are providing is what you need, plus information from our customers that helps to find the perfect solution.

  • Where is the connection box located?
  • Where are the auxiliary connecting boxes located?
  • What are the physical/space constraints for a replacement motor?
  • Does a drawing of the original motor exist? Is it accurate?
  • What is the load information? Does a speed vs. torque curve exist?
  • Do the critical mounting dimensions match a common modern frame size?
  • Is there anything special about the motor?
  • Can we adapt a common motor versus a custom one? Or does a custom motor make more sense?
  • What manufacturer(s) build the best solution?
  • What is the history of issues with the existing unit?
