Hypoid right-angle gearmotor features maximum efficiency

The PowerSTAR is a new hypoid, maximum efficiency, right-angle gearmotor. This is a right-angle gearmotor capable of energy efficient operation for applications that include packaging equipment, conveyors, light industrial equipment, and food processing.

Using the latest in hypoid gear technology, PowerSTAR offers several design advantages over conventional worm and competing hypoid gearmotors, such a high power density enabling a compact profile without compromising performance. PowerSTAR also features ground gearing to provide whisper-quiet operation and low backlash precision. Externally, the gearmotor is equipped with finned edges for cooler operating temperatures and multiple mounting configurations to support easy interchangeability. Optional accessories include a torque arm and multiple foot plate and mounting adapters, making PowerSTAR easy to specify into new or existing designs.

The initial product offering for the new PowerSTAR line includes both 1/8 and 1/5 hp single-phase 115-V and three-phase 230-V inverter duty motor options on the 725 gearbox in 13 standard ratios offering output torque from 59 to 878 in.-lb. Other frame sizes and gearing packages are coming soon.
