Gearboxes feature industry standard fixings for complete interchangeability
08 March 2007
Parvalux has introduced a range of three gearboxes with industry standard three-point fixings, which comply with international dimensional requirements, and enable Parvalux gearboxes to be used as a direct replacement for units supplied by other manufacturers. The smallest unit - the S3P box - features output torque up to 4.5 Nm, the M3P box provides a torque up to 11.8 Nm while the larger L3P box increases the available torque up to 22 Nm. Different ratios provide a wide range of output speeds from 22 to 970rpm to suit individual applications.
Three point fixing gearboxes can be integrated with motors from the Parvalux range to give exactly the right speed and torque for the application. There are AC and DC motors available in a range of voltages, including 12 and 24Vdc for automotive applications. A unique brushless DC motor is also available with an integrated speed controller.
Manufactured in the UK, all the gearboxes are rated to IP54 and feature a lightweight die cast body, which is resistant to corrosion and suitable for mounting in any position.
The sealed for life, maintenance-free design has been optimised for minimum noise. Encoders and tachos can be fitted for positioning output. An optional brake is also available to prevent ‘drive back’ and to bring the motor shaft to a standstill. Other options for the gearbox include custom output shafts with threads or keyways, available in a range of different materials.
Whilst other suppliers offer standard gearboxes and motors that may require design compromises to be made, all Parvalux motor and gearboxes combinations are custom built to match the precise requirements of the application. This makes them suitable for immediate installation ‘out of the box’ without the need for time consuming and costly modifications.
