Brushless motors and controls allow adjustable speed applications
April 6, 2009
Brushless motors provide designers with benefits such as, higher torque and more power in smaller packages, reduced maintenance, and quieter operation. These motors are available from stock, with standard NEMA face/foot mount, ranging from ¼ to 3 HP (0.18 – 2.2Kw). The new BMC series controls are simple to operate, as no programming is necessary; they provide a tight speed regulation better than 0.5%; and use the industry standard input command (+/- 10Vdc) or optional pot input for speed control. The control uses standard 115/208/230 Vac and is available from stock. The positive solutions provided by Baldor’s DC Brushless motor and control will enhance machinery uptime and provide low maintenance-free and trouble-free operation. Typical adjustable speed applications include mixers, blowers, indexers, feeders, and conveyors.
