Bison Gear adds an AC offering to its FlexTorq 762 hollow shaft offset gearmotor line
Bison Gear's FlexTorq 762 series hollow shaft offset AC gearmotors feature either a 1.25-inch (31.75-millimeter) I.D. hollow shaft or a 1.25-inch-diameter solid shaft in either the U-shaped or S-shaped configuration. Driven by 1/20, 1/4 or 1/2 hp (37, 186 or 373 W) single- and three-phase 115- and 230-volt AC electric motors, these fractional horsepower gearmotors operate with fixed output speeds from 60 to 1 rpm and offer continuous duty torque outputs from 430 to 2500 in-lbs (48.5 to 283 N-m) respectively. The AC FlexTorq standard product offering includes two dual-voltage (115/230) models, nine 115-volt models and four energy-saving Verdant Duty three-phase models for use with variable frequency drives.
