RH200 Oil Well Drive


RH200 Oil Well Drives offer sensorless motor control which allows our units to run a rod pump without the use of dynamic braking resistors.

Onboard automatic voltage regulation allows the RH200 Oil Well Drive to efficiently operate rod pumps even applications that are excessively out of balance.  This is beneficial as the oil well characteristics are constantly changing as well as the upstroke and down stroke load requirements.

Package Details:

RH200 Oil Well Drives can REDUCE energy costs up to 40% over applications without a variable frequency drive.  While reducing overall energy consumption and eliminating peak demand charges the RH200 has a short timeline for return on investment.

These units can be used on artificial lift pumping units of any size or model.  Sizing of the units to be based on motor horsepower.

Equipment Features:

  • 5HP-200HP, 230/460/600VAC
  • Manual speed control via door mounted speed potentiometer
  • 1 Phase – 3 Phase Incoming Power Conversion
  • Auto Restart on VFD Faults or well shutdowns
  • Annunciation of well shutdowns on VFD HMI
  • Precise speed control
  • Allows the pump jack speed to be adjusted without requiring the motor sheave to be changed
  • Automatic timer on /off control available
  • Strokes per minute displayed on the VFD HMI
  • Offers power savings when compared to the well being operated with a starter
  • Reduces maintenance and repair of mechanical equipment/downhole pump/rod string



The stator core is laminated with high quality electrical steel with high permeability and low losses allowing the motors to operate more efficiently.

The stator windings utilize Class F insulation (Class H insulation is available on request)with polyimide enamel round wire and VPI treated providing strong mechanical support, superior electrical insulation, misture and contamination resistance, and uniform heat dissipation.

Thermistors(PTC) are embedded in windings (Thermostats are available on request), one each phase.


The squirrel-cage totors are of cast aluminum alloy. fixed on the shaft by means of hot fit. The rotor is dynamically balanced to reduce vibration.

Bearing and lubrication

The motors are fitted with low noise and low vibration bearing special for motors. For the motors in frame size 210, bilaterally shielded ball bearing are used without replenishing grease. For the motors in frame sizes 250 and above, the open bearing are equipped with attachments having the function to drain and replenish lubricating grease without stopping the motor. No. 3 Lithium Base grease is used unless specified otherwise. Bearing design life is at least 40000 hours at rated load. Bearing size, see table 1.

Conduit Box

The conduit box is on the central libe of the enclosure. It can be F1/F2 convertible. The conduit box is made of cast iron and the opening utilizes Standard NPT threads (Metric threads and holes are available on request). There are grounding bolts and a connection diagram inside the conduit box.
Motor main leads and thermistor leads are loose keeping in conduit box (Therminal blocks are available on request).

Fan and Fan Cover

The fan is made of plastic or cast iron to different applications. The fan cover is made of steel sheet or cast iron depending on different operating conditions.


A sunshade is recommended when the motor is intended for outdoor installation in direct sunlight with an ambient temperature rating of over 40 degree C.
