Bodine: Low-voltage, right-angle gearmotors

Bodine’s line of INTEGRAmotor high-performance right-angle gearmotors now includes 34B4/FV-5N gearmotors which combine Bodine’s 34B brushless DC motor with a compact right-angle gearhead, a built-in PWM speed control, and an optical encoder.

The 24 VDC 34B/FV-5N gearmotors are designed for a wide range of low-voltage applications in packaging machines, conveyor systems, printing equipment, and factory automation. 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-5N gearmotors provide 1/4 hp (187 watts) and up to 104 lb.-in. (12 Nm) continuous torque. They are stocked in gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 40:1 and their rated output speeds are from 63 to 500 RPM. These 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-5N INTEGRAmotors and gearmotors are rated IP-44.

Special order versions can also be supplied with food-grade gearhead lubricants or with hollow shaft gearheads.
