Question about ACA Hurricane motor

Tue May 14, 2024 11:46 pm

This is just a quick question. Was the chopper motor found in the MK2 Hurricane a motor specially made for the Hurricane or was it just a random motor? And if possible, what brand was the motor?
I don’t have any real sirens, but I will one day. But for now, I just enjoy making homemade sirens.

Hopefully this helps, It's from the manual.

Looking at pictures of the chopper assembly, they use Doerr Electric 1HP induction motors. They apparently bought them the way they were without having them custom built.

To be honest, I had to search some of this up on the Wiki (I'm starting to feel like I don't actually know that much about sirens :lol:)

They're essentially an open-frame bench grinder motor made by Doerr. They're a 1HP 230VAC 1-PH motor, spinning at 3450 RPM. Frame size is D56 with a customer motor reference number of 601007H711. Unlike the MK1s, where the motor frame IS the siren's stator, the MK2 uses a simpler design of having the stators removable from the motor frame; the stators essentially become the end bells of the motor.

Thanks for the info! I have a project that needs a motor similar to the one found in the Hurricane, but the motor I was originally going to use was in rough shape and the windings were also really bad.
