Compact & Lightweight yet Powerful Unit provides benefits for Solar Tracking, Robotics & Automation Applications
Midwest Motion Products, Inc. of Watertown, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the release of a new DC Gear Motor, with integral failsafe brake, the Model No. MMP D22-376D-24V GRA60-020 BR-005. Accepting any 24 Volt DC source, including solar or battery power, this robust Gear Motor measures just 2.24” in Diameter, by 7.2” long, including the brake, and has a keyed output shaft of 14mm diameter by 25mm long. Easy mounting is accomplished with 4 “face mount” M5.5 threaded holes, equally spaced on a 52mm Dia. B.C.
The output of this reversible gearmotor is rated for 29 Lb. In. (3.3Nm) torque, at 29 RPM, with a Peak Torque of 172 In Lbs. Despite its compact size, and weight of approximately 6 pounds, it’s an efficient design, boasting a 92% Gearhead efficiency, and requiring just 4 Amps at 24 Volts DC to generate its Full Load Torque. That translates into long life battery charge, low noise operation, and lower costs for related drive electronics. Motor windings for 12V, 28V, 36V, 42V, 48V, 60V & 90 Volts are available. The integral Failsafe “holding” brake is also 2.25” diameter, and operates at the same 24V DC supply voltage.
This unique design is rated at an “IP 54” protection level for operation in harsh environments. Variable Speed control is accomplished with our fully compatible Speed Controls, Model MMP 25A-24V, or MMP 20A-24V-RSP.
Samples are available FROM STOCK for rapid prototyping needs.
Typical options available from the company include Servo Motors with integral Optical Encoders, Failsafe Brakes, Analog Tachometers, and a variety of Planetary Gearheads, with standard ratios ranging from 3:1 to 2653:1, and standard or low backlash precision gearing available. Motor Winding Options include 24V, 28V, 36V, 48V, 60V and 90 Volts DC.
The company offers a variety of standard ancillary equipment including DC power supplies, DC Servomotors, PWM Servo Amplifiers, Motor Speed Controls, Linear Actuators and a wide variety of DC gear-motors. Custom Motor Shaft and mounting configurations are also available. Typical applications include Automated Welding Equipment, Solar Tracking, Battery Operated Motors & E.V. drives, Medical, Mobility / Accessibility products, Robotics & Automation including (Military) Unmanned Guided Vehicles, Semiconductor Processing Equipment, Actuators, Packaging & Labeling Machines, Woodworking & Metalworking Machines, Dynamic Displays for Tradeshows and many other applications requiring precise motion control.
