Bison Gear: New PowerSTAR DC gearmotor
Bison Gear and Engineering is launching a PMDC motor version of the PowerSTAR hypoid right-angle product line.
Bison Gear and Engineering is launching a PMDC motor version of the PowerSTAR hypoid right-angle product line. This new gearmotor will feature all of the gearing advantages of the AC motor PowerSTAR series in addition to easy variable speed control and high start-up torque.
The DC motor PowerSTAR series features permanent magnet TENV (totally enclosed, non-ventilated) DC motors with dynamically balanced armatures, tang-type diamond turned commentators, high-grade ceramic magnets and oversized replaceable brushes. The motors are built to Class F insulation standards, and have been used in a multitude of Bison products and customer applications. Each motor series will feature different voltage options to align with specific applications, shown below:
• 720 Series – 12, 24, 90, 130 and 180 V
• 725 Series – 12, 24, 90, 130 and 180 V
• 730 Series – 24, 90, 130 and 180 V
Like the AC motor version, the DC PowerSTAR comes equipped with advanced hypoid gearing technology that provides up to 4x the efficiency of a typical worm gearmotor, and mounting configurations for both imperial and metric equipment. The DC motor version is designed to excel in remote (or battery powered) applications and equipment requiring high start-up torque or variable speed control, such as gate operators, pumping stations and food service conveyors.
