Bison Gear and Engineering has introduced its 107 series Verdant Duty gearmotors in five standard off-the-shelf models.

Rated at 1/20 horsepower (37.3W) at 230V, 60Hz, three-phase, the gearmotors feature an operating range from 6Hz to 90Hz to provide a 15:1 range of adjustable output speeds in applications requiring no maintenance.

The gearmotors feature enclosed, non-ventilated (TENV) AC motors constructed with special insulation systems to ensure long life when driven by frequency inverters that convert conventional AC single phase to three-phase power.

Employing integral gear reducers with gear ratios from 6.7:1 to 95.5:1 they offer output speeds from 368 to 1.7rpm with output torques up to 100in/lbs (11.3Nm).

‘Being able to utilise three phase over single phase fractional horsepower gearmotors provides an immediate pay back in reduced energy consumption with improved efficiency,’ said Matt Hanson, Bison Gear vice president, portfolio management.

‘These Verdant Duty products are suitable for variable speed applications, such as packaging equipment, machine drives and conveyors.

‘Used in conjunction with Bison’s matched inverter drives, customers can also increase process efficiency and control by employing such features as adjustable acceleration and deceleration, minimum and maximum speed levels and current limiting, as well as DC injection braking.’ The RoHS compliant gearmotors feature UL, Cruus and CE recognition and are supported by Bison’s design engineering capabilities to customise standard models to meet specific OEM needs.
