Gearmotors Put New Heads On Their Shoulders

Enhancing the Pacesetter family of ac inverter duty, three-phase gearmotors and motors, inverter duty gearmotors are now available with the company’s latest gearheads: types 3RD, HG, and CG. Each gearhead offers unique characteristics. The type 3RD is a double-reduction gearhead for applications that require very slow rotation and very high torque. It produces outputs from 0.5 to 8.5 rpm with gear ratios from 200:1 to 3,600:1, allowing a small motor to product up to 148 lb.-in. of torque. The type HG gearmotor features an offset drive shaft that makes it viable for use in tight-quarter applications. It is face mountable from either side and produces outputs from 16 to 63 rpm with gear ratios of 27:1 to 108:1 and up to 1,000 lb.-in. of continuous torque. For higher than usual performance, the type GC delivers outputs from 24 to 85 rpm with gear ratios from 20:1 to 72:1 and up to 1,000 lb.-in. of torque. Optionally, hollow shaft versions of the type 3RD and HG are available. BODINE ELECTRIC CO., Chicago, IL. (800) 726-3463.
