Fixed-speed ac gearmotor features redesigned gearhead - Bodine Electric Co.

A three-wire, reversible, 34R-frame ac-induction motor is paired with a redesigned high-torque WX gearhead. The gearmotor features steel helical gears and synthetic lubricant for a 50% increase in torque. The steel gearing is designed to AGMA 9 standards, and the synthetic lubricant allows these unvented gearmotors to operate over a wide temperature range. Gear ratios range from 4:1 to 312:1.

Available in 12 models, the single-phase 1/7-hp motors can be configured to feature a three-hole mounting pattern using a simple bolt-on adapter plate.
