St. Charles, IL – Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. introduces its new VWDIR03 right angle fractional horsepower gearmotor, designed as Von Weise Drop-In Replacements. The Bison VWDIR03 is available in 13 standard models, with output speeds from 4.5 to 100 RPM and torques from 27 to 250 in-lbs. With applications ranging from exercise equipment to conveyors, the VWDIR03 gearmotors are driven by a versatile universal motor that can be run from 115V AC or DC and which can be inexpensively speed controlled with a rheostat or a simple “light dimmer” triac electronic control.
Versatility is further enhanced through the choice of left, right or double output shaft configurations, all position mounting, and the 1/15 hp motor rotation is reversible. Manufactured in Bison’s U.S.A. facilities to the highest quality standards to ensure dependable, long-life operation, Bison’s new VWDIR03 gearmotors are available with U.L. and CSA recognition and are supported by Bison’s solid application and design engineering support to customize standard models to meet specific OEM needs.
