Designed specifically for use with all types of heating gases, EGD series motors are certified according to Gas Appliances Directive 90/396/EEC to perform fail safe gas flow modulation and closing functions, and include a mechanical safety return feature. As a result, they are ideally suited for use in direct or indirect fire/HVAC equipment, commercial or residential furnaces, or gas valve applications.
With Class B insulation and a stainless steel tube between the stator and the rotor, these gas sealed motors are built for robust, reliable operation. They are rated to deliver a minimum of 500,000 operating cycles, at operating frequencies of 25 to 200 Hz, in temperatures ranging from -15 to +85°C. These motors are available with a 12 or 24 V unipolar coil (bipolar available), deliver 10 or 15 mm travel, and provide 21 or 42 μm step resolution; 240 or 720 steps. Integrated safety functionality provides closing time ≤1 second.
