New universal gearmotor operates on 115V AC, 60 or 50 Hz, or 115V DC and offers versatility in mounting, output shafts and speed control.
St. Charles, IL – August 14, 2008 – To meet the needs of a wide variety of established OEMs, Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. introduces its new VWDIR03 right angle fractional horsepower gearmotors designed as Von Weise Drop-In Replacements. The Bison VWDIR03 is available in 13 standard models, with output speeds from 4.5 to 100 RPM and torques from 27 to 250 in-lbs. With applications ranging from exercise equipment to conveyors, the VWDIR03 gearmotors are driven by a versatile universal motor that can be run from 115V AC or DC and which can be inexpensively speed controlled with a rheostat or a simple “light dimmer” triac electronic control.
