St. Charles, IL – Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. introduces its new line of sensorless brushless DC (SBLDC) parallel shaft gearmotors with powers up to 1/6 hp (124 watts). The new 34 frame AUTONOmotor™ gearmotors are powered by totally enclosed, nonventilated (TENV) brushless motors that are sensorless to reduce cost, size, and wiring complexity while offering improved reliability and noise immunity compared to brushless motors with shaft mounted rotor position sensors.
Employing modern DSP technology which facilitates implementation of sensorless control algorithms and eliminates the need for position sensors (and associated wiring) required in conventional BLDC motor-control systems, Bison’s new low voltage AUTONOmotor™ parallel shaft gearmotors are offered in eleven standard versions with gear ratios from 5:1 to 215.6:1 and rated output speeds from 470 to 11 RPM with a 10:1 speed range. Speed can be adjusted with either a supplied potentiometer or a 0-5V DC signal. Continuous output torques range from 19 to 300 in-lbs (2.1 to 33.9 N-m). The gearmotors employ all-steel gearing, and oil bath lubrication for optimum design lifetimes.
Ideally suited for foodservice equipment, factory automation, packaging equipment, alternative energy systems, stationary agricultural equipment, and other specialty machinery applications, the eleven new AUTONOmotor™ brushless DC parallel shaft gearmotors are part of Bison Gear’s comprehensive In-Stock, Instant-Ship (ISIS) program that supports Bison’s distribution partners and offers same day shipment for orders received before noon (Central Time).
The new AUTONOmotor™ brushless DC parallel shaft gearmotors are American-made to Bison’s high quality standards in its suburban Chicago facility in order to ensure reliable, long-life operation and a short supply chain for North American customers. In addition, Bison’s Innopreneurial™application and design engineering capabilities to customize the standard models to meet specific OEM needs are readily available.
