The VWDIR20 parallel-shaft ac gearmotor is available in eight standard models. The gearmotor features ¼-hp (186-W) 115-V, 60-Hz split-phase operation and a phenolic high-speed gear for low noise and steel gearing in subsequent stages, with ratios ranging from 14:1 to 286:1. Corresponding fixed output speeds are from 120 to 6 rpm, with continuous torque ratings from 100 to 600 lb-in. The unit also has built-in face and fount mounting with overhung load (OHL) capability up to 300 lb.

The gearmotor is designed for high-torque, single-phase commercial, and industrial applications including electromechanical pool covers and bleachers, compactors, can crushers, conveyors, commercial garage-door operators, and a variety of poultry and other agricultural equipment.
