New 48 Volt, Planetary DC Gearmotor

Compact & Lightweight yet Powerful Unit provides benefits for Solar Trackers, Robotics & Automation Applications

IP-54 Sealed, High Power, 48 Vdc Gearmotor Develops 18 Lb. In. Torque at 782 RPM
Midwest Motion Products of Watertown, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the release of a new DC Gear- Motor, Model #: MMP-D33-455D-48V GP81-03.7 - Accepting any 48 Volt DC source, including battery power, this robust Gear Motor measures just 3.2" (max) Diameter, by 8.4" long and has a keyed output shaft of 19mm diameter by 40mm long. Easy mounting is accomplished with 4 "face mount" M6 threaded holes, equally spaced on a 65mm Dia. B.C. or an optional NEMA34 Flange, as shown on the attached Photo.

The output of this fully reversible gearmotor is rated for 18 IN-LBS continuous torque, at 782 RPM, and 354 IN-LBS Peak. Despite its compact size, and weight of approximately 10 pounds, it¡¦s an efficient design, requiring just 5.1 Amps at 48 Volts DC to generate its Full-Load Torque. This translates into longer battery charge, very LOW-NOISE operation, and lower cost drive electronics. Motor windings for 12v, 18v, 24v, 28v, 36v, 42v, 60v & 90 Volts are available.
