Plug and play motor gear unit

The Fenner GT integral motor gearbox from Wyko is designed to provide the benefits of automation while retaining the convenience of manual speed control in tough working environments. IP65 sealing and waterproofed electrical components ensure significantly improved reliability, accuracy and maintenance levels over traditional mechanical variable speed drives. The new units are supplied ready-to-run with application specific factory presets but can easily be integrated into fieldbus based control systems. By using the Fenner GT to manage start/stop phases and adapt speed cycles, systems designers and maintenance engineers in all industries can improve efficiency and reduce the risks associated with interruptions, flow irregularities and load handling. The GT is also expected to be popular with engineers who are replacing more traditional mechanical variable speed drives and still prefer to retain a familiar manual speed control option. Roger Evans of Wyko Industrial Services explains: "There are thousands of examples of cone type, pulley and belt or ball and plate mechanical variable speed units in use that are reaching the end of their service life. These have proved popular in the past due to the fact that an operator can control the systems manually without having to go to a remote control panel. However, due to the diminishing number of manufacturers, having these units repaired is becoming more difficult and expensive. GT integral motor gearbox units offer a complete drop-in replacement for the older systems."
