Danaher Motion Introduces A New Electromechanical Wrap Spring Clutch: The DuraLIFE-33(TM)

New Unit Provides High Torque Capabilities in a Small Package

Cleveland. Ohio - Danaher Motion announces the launch of its Deltran PT DuraLIFE-33, an electromagnetic wrap spring clutch that combines high torque, reliability, and rapid acceleration into one small package-at a very competitive price.

The wrap spring technology of the DuraLIFE-33 allows for very fast response to bring loads from zero to full speed in less than 3 milliseconds, depending on the application load requirements. It provides 30 lb/in (3.4Nm) of torque over a cycle life of 1 million actuations. The DuraLIFE-33 exceeds industry life requirements with minimum cycle-to-cycle variation.

"Because the DuraLIFE-33 interchanges with other popular high performance wrap spring clutches, its "drop in" capability makes it ideal for use in office automation applications, such as printers, copiers, microfilm readers or paper cutters." states John Pieri, Product Manager of Deltran PT brakes and clutches. "We are also seeing successes in the automotive market in cruise control and cinch actuator system applications." .

The DuraLIFE-33 is available with the following options:
- CW or CCW direction
- Cross Pin; D shaft
- Four bores sizes: 1/4 in., 5/16 in., 6mm or 8mm
- Three voltage offerings: 12. 24 or 90 VDC
- Two electrical connection choices: molded connector or 12" flying leads

Designed for low wattage consumption, and easy mechanical and electrical assembly, the DuraLIFE-33 is a low cost alternative that provides the high torque, long life and reliable performance needed for higher load applications.
