Can the motor rotate in both directions?Last Updated: July 08, 2019
While for a majority of HYDAC motors, both electric and hydraulic, the motor can be spun in the opposite direction we do not recommend doing so. The reason is the fans for the coolers are normally designed to be rotated in one direction only. Spinning the fan in the opposite direction as indicated can lead to cooling inefficiencies and possibly to motor failure. Also where a pump is included with our cooler the pump is designed to spin in one direction only so spinning the motor in the opposite direction can cause the pump to fail.
