Bodine Electric Company: Gearmotors

Forty new stock models are available with either 12/24VDC or 90/130 VDC rated motor windings. New synthetic lubricant allows the FX gearhead to operate at a wider temperature range while at the same time improving overall gearhead performance. Stronger, hardened helical steel gears and new needle bearings provide more torque and 25% longer product life. The new 42A5-FX achieves these gains in power, performance and flexibility without any change in the gearhead dimensions or mounting configurations.

The 12/24 VDC gearmotor models drive portable or remote applications where connection to an AC line is not possible.

The 42A-FX is driven by the company’s rugged 42A5-frame (4.25 in./108 mm diameter) permanent magnet DC motor. Redesigned windings now bring power and dependability to low-voltage solar/battery power applications, as well as those applications using standard 90/130 VDC power (up to 3/8 hp/280 watts). The motor’s high starting torque and linear speed/torque characteristics make it suitable for variable-speed, high-torque applications. The new FX gearhead provides up to 350 lb.-in. (40 Nm) continuous torque. Models are available in gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 300:1 and rated output speeds of 3 to 500 RPM.
