Following the successful introduction of its 100 in-lb (11.3 N-m) inverter-duty AC gearmotor line, Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. has increased by seven times the output torque capability of its Verdant Duty™ 3-phase AC offering with the introduction of the new 650 Series variable speed gearmotors. Driven by 1/4 or 1/2 hp (186 or 373 W) three phase 230 volt TEFC AC electric motors, these specially constructed inverter-duty gearmotors are designed for long life variable frequency drive operation with continuous duty torque outputs from 148 to 717 in-lbs (16.7 to 81 N-m).

"These new Verdant Duty™ AC gearmotors are ideally suited for equipment designs that can benefit not only from higher efficiency three-phase input, but also variable speed to suit load conditions as in conveying and other dynamic load applications," said Bunnyray Larmond, Bison Gear regional sales manager. "Of course, Bison also offers matching AC drives in both open chassis and NEMA 4X enclosures to accompany these gearmotors."

The 650 Series Verdant Duty™ standard product offering is made up of five models with gear ratios from 27.6 to 214.5:1. Like all of Bison's standard and Verdant Duty™ products, they are supported by Bison's In-Stock, Instant-Ship (ISIS) program and available from Bison distributors and direct from the Bison website. Complete specifications and CAD drawings for these units are also available at Bison Gear's new website.

The Verdant Duty™ 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.
