Introducing an Updated Brushless DC Motor
Groschopp Inc. introduces an updated Brushless DC (BLDC) motor and several gearmotor combinations. Due to the lack of wear components, the BLDC motor is considered to be a maintenance-free, high reliability motor with a life of 20,000 hours or more. Typically only the bearings will limit a brushless motor’s life. With an outside square dimension of 73.3 mm (2.88 in) to 90.2 mm (3.55 in) the brushless motor is available in two sizes and a variety of voltages, 12, 24 and 163VDC/115VAC, offering broad torque and speed ranges.
- Variable speed or torque operation
- High efficiency between 65% – 85%
- High starting torque
- 20,000+ hours life
- No maintenance
- High power density
- Totally enclosed, non-ventilated
- Continuous rated speeds 2,600 to 3,800 rpm
- Continuous rated torque of 1.8 to 10.8 in-lb
Brushless DC motors also work well with a variety of gearboxes. Groschopp catalog combinations include: right angle worm, planetary, parallel shaft, and right angle planetary reducers. The gearmotor combinations are tested and optimized using a custom interface designed to ensure the motors and gearboxes function flawlessly as one unit. The interface eliminates the need to purchase a motor and gearbox separately, eliminating design and assembly time.
