Crouzet North America introduces geared BLDC motors for fast prototyping

The BLDC motors from Crouzet include continuous power up to 400 W, speeds between 1,500 and 6,100 RPMs, and motor constants up to 15 ounce per square root W (103 mNm per square root W). Maximum torque constants feature up to 198 ounce- inches/amp (1,400 mNm/amp). The six new models include two round and four square designs with lengths ranging from 41 mm to 114 mm. Motors can be ordered with a factory-mounted optical or magnetic encoder and can also be fitted with electro-mechanical fail safe power off brakes.

Compatible gearboxes feature Spur, Planetary and Worm styles with torques from 0.4 Nm to 120 Nm. The BDE30 and BDE40 external drives are offered in 6 A or 14 A max respectively. Internal drives are offered on BLDC motors that feature power ranges from 40 to 100 W.

Applications for the BLDC motors include the medical and industrial markets, and specifically for use in automation for endoscopy, x-ray and dental equipment, robotic pool equipment, peristaltic pumps, access control, printing and bill boards. Jim McNamara, Crouzet application engineer said: “Crouzet's new motor line offers a significantly expanded performance range and selection for greater application flexibility. Our new 'tool kit' approach of interchangeable motors, gear boxes, controllers, brakes and smart drives, allows us to provide fast automated solutions at an excellent value.”
