Bodine Electric Company Expands Inverter Duty Gearmotor Selection
CHICAGO, IL (November, 2007) - Bodine Electric Company announced that it has expanded the Pacesetter(TM) family of AC inverter duty, three-phase gearmotors and motors. Inverter duty gearmotors are now available with Bodine's newest gearheads: the types 3RD, HG and CG. Typical applications for these gearmotors include conveyor systems, food processing equipment, medical equipment and factory automation.
The new gearheads each feature unique characteristics that fill out the Pacesetter product line. The type 3RD is a double-reduction gearhead designed for applications that require very slow rotation and very high torque. It produces output from 0.5 up to 8.5 RPM, with gear ratios from 200:1 to 3,600:1, allowing a relatively small motor to product up to 148 lb-in. of torque. The type HG gearmotor features an offset drive shaft that makes it ideal for use in applications where space is limited. The unique design of this gearhead allows it to be face-mounted from either side. It produces output from 16 to 63 RPM, with gear ratios of 27:1 to 108:1, and up to 1,000 lb-in. continuous torque. Almost every component of the type GC was designed for higher-than-usual performance. It produces output from 24-85 RPM with gear ratios from 20:1 to 72:1 and up to 1,000 lb-in. of torque. Hollow shaft versions of the type 3RD and HG gearmotors are available via Bodine Electric's special-order program.
The Bodine Electric Pacesetter, inverter duty AC motors and gearmotors are rated from
1/25 - 3/4 HP, 230 VAC, 60 Hz, 3-phase. All feature Bodine's Quintsulation(TM) 5-stage insulation system, which meets NEMA MG 1-1993, Section IV, Part 31. This insulation protects the motor from potential spikes or corona damage caused by the inverter. Pacesetter gearmotors are UL recognized for construction, CSA certified, and in compliance with the Low Voltage Directive "CE". Most Bodine 34R and 42R frame inverter duty gearmotors are now available by special order with optional 230/460 VAC, 60 Hz windings.
As a true system-solution provider, Bodine Electric Company also offers a range of AC inverters (Variable Frequency Drives), both as chassis type (IP-20) and enclosed (NEMA-1 and -4).
Founded in 1905, Bodine Electric Company, a family-owned business, offers over 1,000 standard products, and thousands of custom designed fractional horsepower (less than 1 HP) electric motors, gearmotors and motion controls (AC induction, Brushless DC, and Permanent Magnet DC). Products are available via an extensive distributor network or sold directly to OEMs. Known for their reliability, long life and competitive prices, Bodine products are found in many demanding industrial and commercial applications such as medical devices, labeling equipment, printing presses, photocopier, scientific and laboratory equipment, and factory automation. Bodine is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois with manufacturing and assembly operations in Peosta, Iowa, U.S.A.
