Bodine introduces a new selection of 12 volt permanent magnet DC (PMDC) gearmotors, motors and a new 12 VDC speed control for continuous duty OEM applications. These compact and cost-efficient products provide the predictable performance required for battery powered, remote-location, medical device, or solar applications. When these gearmotors and controls are used together, they provide a complete, single-source motion control system.
12 volt PMDC gearmotors and motors are available in both 24A- and 33A-frame motor sizes. They can be built in combination with most of Bodine’s parallel shaft, hollow shaft or right-angle gearheads, with gearmotor output speeds from 5.6 to 417 rpm. Horsepower extends from 1/29 to 1/8 hp, and they are able to generate up to 310 lb-in torque. Higher output ratings are possible for intermittent duty applications. Custom models are available with encoders installed, special output shafts, cords, and customer-specific mounting configurations.
Bodine’s new Type WPM–12 VDC speed control is ideal for battery powered, solar powered and other low-voltage applications that require basic, single-direction speed control. This pulse-width-modulation (PWM) speed control provides cool motor operation, long brush life and lower audible noise and wider speed range. DIP-switches allow the control to be easily calibrated for different size motors.
