AC Torque Box

Our Torque Box line of AC gearmotors is comprised of a shaded pole motor and geartrain enclosed in a rugged, dust proof, zinc die-cast case. Standard output speeds of 2 and 3 RPM are available in single piece order quantities. Other output speeds are available with maximum loading of 50 inlb. Available AC voltages from 24 Volt through 500 Volt allow us to meet virtually any domestic, or international, single phase voltage requirement. Dual voltage and both 60 Hz and 50 Hz coils are available. The gearcase is made from sturdy die-cast zinc with extensive use of powdered metal gears. Cut steel gears and optional soft metal or nylon gearing for noise-sensitive applications is available. High quality oil-impregnated bronze sleeve bearings are standard with optional needle bearings available upon request. Idler pins ride in bearings to allow for easy backdrive through geartrain for spring return type applications. Output shafts can be provided with flats, keyways, threads, or square ends to meet your application needs. Options for the Torque Box include internal mechanical slip clutch gears, UL approved cord sets, conduit boxes, and our UL Class F insulation system.
