Oriental Motor now sells new options from its BMU Series — two new high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads …
… the foot-mount JB Gear and the flange mount JV Gear joining the right-angle hollow shaft JH Gear. These new gearheads work with the company’s 200 Watt (1/4 HP) or 400 Watt (1/2 HP) BMU Series brushless DC motors. The gear and motor combination increases allowable load of the output shaft and greatly increases maximum permissible torque while providing a space saving and high efficiency speed control system. More after the jump.
The new BMU series brushless motors offer IP66 class protection through the use of a new motor connector type. Because torque is not saturated with the new high-strength and high-gear ratio gearheads, the maximum output torque is available at each gear ratio. The high permissible radial and axial strength enables powerful, high-spec operations.
The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 3,600 r/min (80 to 3,600 r/min). Speed ratio of 1:45 is achieved. This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.
The new BMU Series with IP66 rated motor connector and high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads are available for the 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) brushless motor & driver packages, available to ship in 9 business days.
The BMU IP66 with High Strength Gearheads key features are:
- Stainless steel shaft, IP66 rated
- New motor and connector type
- Space saving
- Maximizing torque with Helical gears
- Continuous flat torque of a brushless motor
- Broader and stable speed range compared to three-phase inverter driven motors
