Bodine Electric’s WX high-torque gearhead is now available with two 33A permanent magnet DC (PMDC) motors. Designed to drive applications such as conveyor systems, packaging equipment, metering pumps, medical devices, commercial appliances and solar powered outdoor equipment, the WX gearmotors feature new all-steel gear trains and synthetic lubricants, allowing them to produce up to 65 percent more torque than previous models. A new low-voltage type 33A PMDC motor with a winding rated 12/24 VDC and a standard 90/130 VDC motor are available to power the WX gearhead. Both motors provide high starting torque and linear speed torque characteristics, and feature permanently lubricated ball bearing construction for maintenance-free operation, as well heavy gauge steel housing and copper graphite brushes.
