Whether the rotary motion of an OEM's equipment is run by low voltage, battery power or from a stationary DC power source, the new fractional horsepower parallel shaft VWDIR83 gearmotors from Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. represent a versatile, long life, value solution. Designed as Von Weise Drop-In Replacements, the Bison VWDIR83 gearmotors are available in 12 standard models; 6 each for 12 volt and 90 volt DC inputs. With gear ratios from 32:1 to 430:1, fixed output speeds range from 6 to 93 RPM, with output torques from 50 to 13 in-lbs. These Bison drop-in replacements for VW83 gearmotors feature 1/30 hp permanent magnet DC motors with replaceable brushes, grease lubrication for long life and all-position face mounting with a 50 lb. overhung load rating. Bison is also introducing a similar line of dual voltage, dual frequency AC gearmotors, powered by 1/20 hp induction motors.
"This is a low profile, excellent value gearmotor design that fits perfectly into such applications as peristaltic pumps, commercial floor care appliances, door operators, lamination, binding and other types of office and document handling equipment," said Andy Szpak, Bison Gear Regional Sales Director. "The permanent magnet DC motor offers high starting torque capability and we can even mount a Bison speed control directly to these gearmotors for even more versatility, as well as energy savings."
Manufactured in Bison Gear's St. Charles, Illinois facilities to the highest quality standards to ensure dependable, long-life operation, Bison's new VWDIR83 gearmotors are available with U.L. and CSA recognition and are supported by Bison's Innopreneurial(TM) application and design engineering capabilities to customize standard models to meet specific OEM needs.
