Bodine: Gearmotors with AC models

Bodine Electric’s expanded FX line of parallel shaft gearmotors includes the all-new 42R6-FX, which combines a new, 3-wire reversible 42R frame AC induction motor with a completely redesigned and updated FX gearhead to provide up to 40% more torque than previous E/F models.

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 42R-FX achieves these gains in power, performance and flexibility without any change in the gearhead dimensions or mounting configurations. 



The 42R6-FX gearmotor is suitable for fixed-speed applications such as medical equipment, packaging machines, conveyor systems, printing equipment, and factory automation applications. 



The gearmotor is driven by the company’s new 42R6-frame 115 VAC/60 Hz, single-phase 1/4 HP (186 Watts) AC motor, which is 60% more powerful than its earlier E/F models. Three-wire winding makes it easier to wire and reverse. The new FX gearhead provides up to 350 lb.-in. (40 Nm) continuous torque. Models are available with gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 300:1 and rated output speeds of 5.7 to 340 RPM. Special order models with 230 VAC 50/60 Hz windings are also available with lead-time and minimum quantities.
