Gearmotor combines 4 drive components in one package.

Press Release Summary:

Type 34B4/FV-5N gearmotors combine 34B brushless DC motor with right-angle gearhead, built-in PWM speed control, and optical encoder. Rated at ¼ hp (187 W), these 24 Vdc gearmotors offer continuous torque up to 104 lb-in., rated output speeds from 63–500 rpm, and gear ratios from 5:1 to 40:1. Components, together, form drive package that simplifies design, wiring, and assembly. Uses include low-voltage applications such as medical equipment, packaging machines, and factory automation.

Original Press Release:

New Low-Voltage, Right-Angle Brushless DC Gearmotors from Bodine Combine Four Drive Components in One Compact Package

Bodine Electric Company's new type 34B4/FV-5N gearmotors combine Bodine’s 34B brushless DC motor with a right-angle gearhead, a built-in PWM speed control, and an optical encoder. Together, they create a high-performance drive package that radically simplifies design, wiring, and assembly.

These 24 VDC gearmotors are ideal for a wide range of low-voltage applications such as medical equipment, packaging machines, and factory automation. They are also suitable for portable or remote applications where connection to an AC line is not possible.


• Gearmotor— power: 1/4 hp (187 watts); continuous torque: up to 104 lb-in. (12 Nm); rated output speeds: from 63-500 RPM. Gear ratios: from 5:1 to 40:1.

• Integrated Control—Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) interface provides voltage control, amplifier enable, direction and dynamic braking inputs. Accepts inputs from an external motion controller or Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).

• Optical Encoder—Closed-loop feedback to the external control from an enclosed 1024 PPR, two channel quadrature, optical encoder.
