Press Release Summary:
Featuring aluminum components that lend to overall weight of 1.9 lb, 260 WOB-L leverages BLDC technology to minimize power consumption. Product runs at speeds from 1,000-3,000 rpm, allowing flow to be varied with application requirements. Optional closed loop controller allows motor speed to be maintained at pre-set, constant speed regardless of load or voltage fluctuations. Also included, 250 Series pump has max flow rates of 1.2 and 1.6 cfm at 2,000 and 3,000 rpm, respectively.
Original Press Release:
Thomas Model 260 BLDC Compressor with Unprecedented Levels of Mobility and Efficiency
The new 260 WOB-L Piston air compressor from Thomas offers higher flow capability than the 250 Series and features aluminum components that help reduce its weight to a mere 1.9 lbs. It is also very quiet and delivers smoother running across all speed curves. It offers BLDC technology that delivers low power consumption for long battery life and can be run at variable speeds ranging from 1000 to 3000 rpm allowing the flow to be varied dependent upon application requirements. An optional closed loop controller allows motor speed to be maintained at a pre-set, constant speed regardless of load or voltage fluctuations.
The 250 Series pump is extremely small (4.25"x4.54"x3.02") and the enclosed crankcase further reduces sound. Maximum flow is 1.2 CFM (2000 rpm) - 1.6 cfm (3000) rpm. Maximum pressure is 30 psig and maximum vacuum is 22" Hg. The standard head configuration offers 1/8-28 BSPT threaded ports. The pump is well suited for medical, pharmaceuticals, business machines, and instrumentation where small size and and the ability to control speed is critical. Thomas can also custom design this pump to meet your exact specification requirements.
