Bodine Electric Company (www.bodine-electric.com) introduced the latest WX gearhead in conjunction integrated with a three-wire-reversible 34 R frame AC induction motor. Its 34 R-WX gives up to 50 percent more torque compared to previous models. The new WX gearhead is designed to give higher performance and longer life compared with other gearmotors of the same size package.
The latest WX gearhead features rugged, all-steel helical gears exceed or meet AGMA-9 standards for quiet operation and longest life. It also has a synthetic lubrication which allows the gearheads to operate in different temperatures. It can be configured to three-hole mounting pattern through a simple bolt-on adaptor (“Bodine model 0995”).
Also, the gearmotor has 12 new gear ratios with a three-wire reversible, fixed-speed AC motor.
The WX gearhead’s exterior is identical to old W models from Bodine, but its interior has been entirely redesigned. These all-new WX gearmotors has synthetic lubricant and steel helical gears, allowing the gearhead to give up to 50 percent more torque compared to previous models. Its new steel gearing has AGMA 9 standards, or higher, to insure the expected quiet operation from Bodine Electric products. Its synthetic lubricant improves life and allows unvented gearmotors to operate in different temperatures.
The 12 new WX stock models can be configured to feature a three-hole mounting pattern through a simple bolt-on adaptor plate (“Bodine model 0995”). The WX gearhead is the first to be paired with three-wire reversible 34 R from Bodine, motor winding and permanent split capacitor. Its three-wire configuration simplifies connection and reversing the motor’s direction by switching the place of its two leads. Also, new winding can be operated at 50Hz by using a different value run capacitor. The latest 230VAC, 50 or 60Hz, one-phase, three-wire reversible winding is available for custom configurations.
The WX models are made to drive various applications such as commercial appliances, metering devices, packaging equipment and conveyor systems.
