Brother Gearmotors, a division of Brother International Corporation that offers a wide range of ultra-reliable, sub-fractional AC gearmotors and reducers for the food & beverage, packaging and material handling industries, has introduced a line of Brushless DC electric gearmotors (BLDC). Also, known as Electronically Commutated Motors, Brother’s portfolio of brushless DC gearmotors are ideal for environments requiring virtually maintenance-free operation and accurate speed control as well as operation over a wide speed range. They are also desirable for settings where brush dust contamination is to be avoided or brush contact arcing could affect electronically sensitive equipment. Features include several shaft configurations, custom options, maintenance free, lubricated and sealed for life as well as very Safe 12-48VDC motors with a wide speed control range.
The new brushless motors are designed to work with an OEM’s own design drive or standard brushless drives from Brother with features such as adjustable acceleration, deceleration, open or closed loop operation, current limiting and other performance and safety features.
“Brother Gearmotors is pleased to add this set of high-efficiency brushless gearmotors to our product offerings,” said Matthew Roberson, vice president of Brother Gearmotors. “At Brother, we strive to provide our customers with the full array of gearmotors they need to remain both competitive and cost-effective.”
