Known as electronically commutated motors, this line of brushless dc electric gearmotors are ideal for environments requiring virtually maintenance-free operation and accurate speed control as well as operation over a wide speed range. They are also desirable for settings where brush dust contamination is to be avoided or brush contact arcing could affect electronically sensitive equipment.
Brushless dc gearmotors are cost-effective, compact and long lasting, and offer several advantages over brushed dc motors, including:
Virtually maintenance free; lubricated and sealed for life
Extremely configurable; several shaft configurations and custom options available
High efficiency, further enhanced with quiet helical and hypoid gearing
Safe 12-48 Vdc motors with a wide speed control range
The brushless motors work with an OEM’s own design drive or standard brushless drives from Brother with features such as adjustable acceleration, deceleration, open or closed loop operation, current limiting and other performance and safety features.
Key attributes of the gearmotors include:
Light, reliable and compact in size
Wide power range, with 50, 100, 200 and 400 W versions available
Sealed for life with standard high-grade grease for lifetime lubrication and reduced maintenance/downtime
High-quality, durable, e-coat finish to withstand the toughest environments
Significantly more efficient than worm gearboxes as a result of unique hardened hypoid gear geometry and processing
