MC electromagnetic clutch line now uses two ball bearings instead of bushings

The MC electromagnetic clutch line now uses two ball bearings instead of bushings. The bearings, located under the field assembly, allow the clutch to operate at 3,600 rpm. A zerobacklash single-spring armature design prevents armature rattle for quiet operation. The clutches come in a 4.5 and 9-lb-in. torque rating. The RoHScompliant clutches conform to UL/ CSA requirements for the lead wires. Ogura Industrial Corp., Box 5790,
