AC Motors

Bodine AC gearmotors and motors are a low-cost, zero-maintenance drive solution. The Bodine line of AC motors and geared motors features five frame sizes (30R, 34R, 42R and 48R and K2), with all stock models designed and rated for continuous-duty applications. Synchronous and non-synchronous motors windings are available for use with 115, 230 and 460VAC power supplies. Because they have no brushes or springs, AC motors are an excellent choice for applications where no maintenance and quiet operation are required. Typical applications include industrial automation, conveyors, food processing equipment, laboratory or medical devices, or basic pumping and metering applications.

Bodine manufactures four basic types of AC motors:

Permanent split capacitor (PSC) gear motors require a continuous-duty, motor run-capacitor to provide starting torque. Bodine type “CI” and “YC” models are designed for single-speed (fixed-speed) applications using single-phase AC power. They are recommended for continuous duty applications or start-stop applications with up to 10 starts per minute.

Split-phase gearmotors and motors (types “SI” and “SY”) use an auxiliary winding to provide starting torque rather than a capacitor. The start winding will be cut out via a centrifugal switch once the motor reaches 70% of its rated operating speed. These motors are primarily used in continuous duty applications, but can be found start-stop applications with up to six starts per hour.

Three-phase, fixed-speed gear motors (types “PP” and “YP”) and motors can be used in factories and other environments where 230/460V AC is available. They provide higher starting torque and higher efficiency than permanent split capacitor models, and are recommended for continuous duty applications or start-stop applications with up to 10 starts per minute.

Bodine also offers a complete line of AC inverter-duty, three-phase gearmotors and matched inverter (VFD) speed controls for variable-speed applications. Dual voltage (230/460 VAC) stock models are available.
