Gearmotors Reduce Energy Consumption

The 107 series Verdant Duty gearmotors are available in 5 standard, off-the-shelf models. Rated at 1/20 horsepower (37.3 watt) at 230 volt, 60Hz, 3-phase, they feature an operating range from 6 to 90Hz to provide a 15:1 range of adjustable output speeds in applications requiring no maintenance.

The gearmotors feature totally enclosed, non-ventilated (TENV) AC motors constructed with special insulation systems to ensure long life when driven by compact, economic frequency inverters that convert conventional AC single phase to three phase power. Employing integral gear reducers with gear ratios from 6.7:1 to 95.5:1 they offer output speeds from 368 to 1.7 RPM with output torques up to 100 in-lbs. (11.3 N-m).  “Our customers require more efficient products, and being able to utilize three phase over single phase fractional horsepower gearmotors provides an immediate payback in reduced energy consumption with improved efficiency,” said Matt Hanson, vice president, portfolio management at the vendor.
