More Power & Performance Added to Parallel Shaft Gearmotor Family

Jan. 29, 2013
Bodine Electric Company today launches a new generation of their type E and F gearmotors.

Bodine Electric Company today launches a new generation of their type E and F gearmotors. The new 42A5-FX is a completely redesigned permanent magnet DC (PMDC) parallel shaft gearmotor that provides up to 40% more torque than previous E/F models. Forty (40) new stock models are offered with either 12/24VDC or 90/130 VDC rated motor windings. New synthetic lubricant allows the FX gearhead to operate at a wider temperature range while at the same time improving overall gearhead performance. Stronger, hardened helical steel gears and new needle bearings provide more torque and 25% longer product life. The new 42A5-FX achieves these gains in power, performance and flexibility without any change in the gearhead dimensions or mounting configurations.
The 42A5-FX gearmotor is ideal for medical equipment, packaging machines, conveyor systems, printing equipment, and factory automation applications. The 12/24 VDC gearmotor models drive portable or remote applications where connection to an AC line is not possible.
The 42A-FX is driven by Bodine’s rugged 42A5-frame (4.25 inch/108 mm diameter) permanent magnet DC motor. Redesigned windings now bring Bodine power and dependability to low-voltage solar/battery power applications, as well as those applications using standard 90/130 VDC power (up to 3/8 hp/280 watts). The motor’s high starting torque and linear speed/torque characteristics make it perfect for variable-speed, high-torque applications. The new FX gearhead provides up to 350 lb-in. (40 Nm) continuous torque. Models are available in gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 300:1 and rated output speeds of 3 to 500 RPM.

These new stock models are available through Bodine’s extensive distributor network, via direct sales to OEMs, or from the Bodine web site. Stock orders typically ship within 2-3 business days.
