Brother Gearmotors: AC Gearmotor
Company: Brother Gearmotors, a division of Brother Intl. Corp.
Description: This line of lightweight, compact interior permanent magnet (IPM) gearmotors are efficient and have a wide synchronous speed range. The series incorporates magnets embedded within the rotor as opposed to on the surface. No copper losses are experienced in the rotor, and considerably less copper losses occur in stator winding. The gearmotors can operate without a fan up to 1 hp and do not require encoders for sensor control. When stopped, a servo lock feature holds the motor in position. It employs brake sequential — which sets motor operations when the mechanical brake is turned on or off — as well as a torque limit solution that protects the mechanical system. Various functions of the programmable input/output terminals may be changed according to external circuits or applications. RS485 is included as standard. They are ideally suited for fans and pumps that are used for factory automation material handling, packaging, and food processing.
