Bodine Electric Company has added more power to its INTEGRAmotor™ gearmotor line. The new type 34B4/FV-F gearmotor combines Bodine’s 34B brushless DC motor and a high-torque gearhead, along with a built-in PWM speed control, and an optical encoder. Together, they create a high-performance drive package that radically simplifies design, wiring, and assembly.
The 24 VDC 34B/FV-F gearmotors are ideal for medical equipment, packaging machines, conveyor systems, printing equipment, and factory automation applications. The gearmotors are also suitable for portable or remote applications where connection to an AC line is not possible. The brushless DC motor is virtually maintenance-free, eliminates brush wear, brush maintenance and carbon dust.
The new 34B/FV-F gearmotors provide 1/4 hp (187 watts) and up to 341 lb-in. (39 Nm) continuous torque, they are stocked in gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 180:1 and rated output speeds of 0.3 to 500 RPM. These new INTEGRAmotors operate from a regulated 24 VDC power supply. Output speed is controlled via a digital Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) interface. The integrated control accepts inputs from an external motion controller or Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). An enclosed 1024 PPR, 2 channel, optical encoder provides closed loop feedback to the external controller. The 34B/FV INTEGRAmotors and gearmotors are rated IP-44. Special order versions of INTEGRAmotor gearmotors can also be supplied with food-grade gearhead lubricants.
