Brother's gear motors need less maintenance

Issue: December 2017

Brushless DC gear motors Brother’s new gear motors can be installed as a retrofit to replace brush motors on equipment such as conveyors. They are ideal for use in around-the-clock manufacturing environments.

What’s new? The line of brushless motors. It includes a number of options, with motors for right-angle foot mount, parallel foot mount, parallel flange mount, and a power range of 50 watts to 400 watts. Reduction ratios range from 1:5 through 1:240.

Benefits Energy efficiency and minimal required maintenance. Compared with brushed motors, brushless motors run longer, with less maintenance; they can also be more precisely controlled. These benefits save users time and money.
