AC 3-Phase Inverter Duty Gearmotors and Motors

Unlike other AC gearmotors and motors, the output speed of Bodine AC 3-phase inverter-duty models can be changed. By converting the incoming 60Hz AC power to a DC voltage, PWM-style inverter drives (also called variable frequency drives) allow AC 3-phase inverter-duty motors to run at variable speeds and frequencies. The DC voltage is “chopped” by power transistors at very high frequencies to simulate a sine wave that is then sent to the motor. Varying the output voltage and frequency of the control changes the speed of the motor. These models feature either 230VAC or 230/460VAC AC 3-phase windings, specifically designed with an inverter rated insulation system. The special insulation system can withstand the higher winding temperatures at slower speeds, and protects the winding from high-voltage spikes and harmonics that PWM (pulse width modulated) inverter drives can generate.

Bodine offers both parallel shaft and right-angle gearmotors matched to 30R, 34R, 42R and 48R frame-size AC inverter-duty motors. All Bodine gearhead-motor combinations are designed to work together as one integrated unit, eliminating the chance of motor-to-gearhead misalignment.

Six parallel shaft gearheads are available: type D, Z, WX, FX, HG and CG. As a rule, parallel shaft gearmotors have higher output torque, efficiency, and lower backlash than right-angle gearheads. Parallel shaft gearheads step down the 4-pole motor speed (typically 1700-1800 rpm at 60Hz) to as low as 9 rpm, and as high as 340 rpm, and provide torque from 7.4-1000 lb-in. Right-angle gearheads include type 3RD, 3N, 5N, 5L, GB, and 5H. The Bodine family of AC inverter-duty right-angle gearmotors delivers speeds from 7.4 to 340 rpm and torque from 8 to 380 lb-in, at a rated frequency range of 10-90Hz. Typical applications include medical and laboratory equipment, labeling and packaging machines, conveyors and a wide range of factory automation solutions.
