February 17, 2017 - Oriental Motor Announces Release of BMU Series Brushless DC Motor with New High-Strength, High Gear Ratio Gearheads
Torrance, CA – ORIENTAL MOTOR USA CORP
JV Parallel Shaft and JB Foot Mount Gearheads Joins Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear in the Family of High Strength High Ratio Gearheads.
Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular BMU Series with the introduction of two new high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads, the foot mount JB Gear and the flange mount JV Gear joining the right-angle hollow shaft JH Gear. These new gearheads are designed to be used with our 200 Watt (1/4 HP) or 400 Watt (1/2 HP) BMU Series brushless DC motors. The gear and motor combination increases allowable load of the output shaft and greatly increases maximum permissible torque while providing a space saving and high efficiency speed control system.
The new BMU series brushless motors achieve IP66 class protection through the use of a new motor connector type. And since torque is not saturated with the new high-strength and high-gear ratio gearheads, the maximum output torque is available at each gear ratio. The high permissible radial and axial strength enables powerful, high-spec operations.
The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 3,600 r/min (80 to 3,600 r/min). Speed ratio of 1:45 is achieved. This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.
The new BMU Series with IP66 rated motor connector and high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads are available for the 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) brushless motor & driver packages, available to ship in 9 business days.
The BMU IP66 with High Strength Gearheads key features are:
- Stainless steel shaft, IP66 rated
- New motor and connector type
- Space saving
- Maximizing torque with Helical gears
- Continuous flat torque of a brushless motor
- Broader and stable speed range compared to three-phase inverter driven motors
