Bison Gear's FlexTorq range gets AC options
Designed as high torque, tight space drives, Bison Gear's new FlexTorq 762 series hollow shaft offset AC gearmotors feature either a 1.25in (31.75mm) inner diameter hollow shaft or a 1.25in diameter solid shaft in either the u-shaped or s-shaped configuration. Driven by 37, 186, or 373W single and three-phase 115 and 230V AC electric motors, these versatile fractional horsepower gearmotors operate with fixed output speeds from 60 to 1 rpm and offer continuous duty torque outputs from 48.5 to 283Nm respectively.
"These new FlexTorq AC gearmotors are a nice complement to our DC FlexTorq offering and are ideally suited for a variety of conveying, foodservice and athletic equipment applications," says Jim Parejko, Bison Gear vice president for continuous improvement and engineering. "We have added 15 standard models to our In-Stock, Instant-Ship (ISIS) program to support our distribution partners and can readily design variations to meet specific OEM needs."
The AC FlexTorq standard product offering includes two dual voltage (115/230) models, nine 115V models and four energy saving Verdant Duty three-phase models for use with variable frequency drives. Complete specifications and CAD drawings for these units are available at Bison Gear's new web site.
The FlexTorq gearmotors are manufactured in Bison Gear's suburban Chicago facility to Bison's high quality standards in order to ensure a short supply chain and reliable, long-life operation. In addition, Bison's Innopreneurial application and design engineering capabilities are available to assist OEMs in their product development and improvement initiatives.
