Hypoid Gearmotor

Dec. 12, 2012
Bison Gear’s PowerSTAR, a new hypoid, maximum efficiency, right-angle gearmotor, uses the company's Robusticity design to improve energy efficiency for a smaller carbon footprint and maximum power density.

PowerSTAR also features ground gearing to provide quiet operation and low backlash precision. Externally, the gearmotor is equipped with finned edges for cooler operating temperatures and multiple mounting configurations to support easy interchangeability. Optional accessories include a torque arm and multiple foot plate and mounting adapters making PowerSTAR easy to specify into new or existing designs.

The initial product offering for PowerSTAR includes both 1/8 and 1/5 HP single-phase 115V and three-phase 230V inverter duty motor options on the 725 gearbox in 13 standard ratios offering output torque from 59-878 in-lbs. Other frame sizes and gearing packages will soon be available.
