Crouzet's New Brushless DC Gearmotor with Integrated Gearbox

Offers Compact All-in-One Solution for Variable Speed and Torque Control

VISTA, Calif., - Crouzet North America, a company of Custom Sensors & Technologies, has introduced the new 801 Series Brushless DC Gearmotor with integrated Gearbox and electronics. The new all-in-one solution offers versatile control for speed and torque in a compact, sealed package. With no brushes to wear out, it is well suited for medical equipment, lab automation and industrial applications where long product life and reliability is paramount.

"Typically, motors, gearboxes and controllers are purchased separately," says Jim McNamara, Crouzet Application Engineer. "With Crouzet's new integrated package, customers have a convenient way to purchase all three functions in one product from a single supplier."

With this product addition, Crouzet has increased its BLDC product line's power rating from 80 to 205 watts and torque range to 120Nm, providing a significant expansion in capabilities. Other outstanding performance characteristics include speeds from7 to 627 rpm for planetary models and 44 to 440 rpm for right angle models. All 801 models include integrated electronics and standard IP54 sealing.

Compact in size, the new series measures just 57 mm square, and fits easily into applications with tight packaging constraints. Sealed packaging allows for operation in harsh environments while the cast aluminum housing optimizes durability and robust operation. Crouzet's Custom Adaptation Center can modify any of the standard models to meet specific application requirements such as custom mounting options, higher IP seal ratings, or supplying without integrated controls.

The 801 Series is priced from $225.00 to $325.00 for the 40 watt, 10Nm model, depending on volume. Delivery is eight weeks.
