VISTA, Calif., – May 24, 2011 – Crouzet, a company of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST), Inc., has introduced the second generation 150 Watt Brushless DC Motor. The new three-stage planetary gearbox is durable enough to withstand high loads without operation interruption and its 150 Watt power offers expanded capabilities for applications requiring high speed and high torque.

The Model 80199701 gear motor delivers thousands of hours of life without service, provides variable speeds and torques, and maintains a smooth, quiet operation. Part of the 801997 family, the robust motor expands Crouzet’s output torque from 25 Nm up to 120 Nm. The motor easily handles high side loads with 1000 N radial and 200 N axial, and lends itself to controllability and long life.

“The use of this brushless dc motors is a logical choice where long life is a concern,” says Jim McNamara, Crouzet’s Applications Engineer. “That combined with the long life gear motor, makes it an excellent solution for many applications,” he adds. “Other benefits include reduced noise, increased efficiency and the elimination of brush dust.”

The Model 80199701 Gear motor is suitable for a wide variety of applications in the medical, commercial and industrial markets. Pricing is from $200 with delivery in 10-12 weeks.
