The EP Greenhouse gear driver is a concise and lightweight reduction geared motor with a built-in limit switch system that’s suitable for assembly of a locally available electric motor. The gear driver can be used in manually-managed or climate-managed ventilation and screen systems in greenhouses. The quick and easy-to-install EP gearbox is definitely rainproof and windproof. The geared motor has a high protection class (IP65) and can be utilized within an ambient temperature of 0-60 °C.
The low-noise geared motor for Greenhouse includes a gearwheel transmission and a worm wheel transmission, which are integrated within an aluminum precision housing. The self-braking worm wheel transmitting ensures that the drive shaft is locked when the reduction geared motor is not running. The fully sealed reduction gearbox comes with an growth chamber with a diaphragm to keep carefully the gear oil at a low pressure under all conditions, even at high temperatures. Thanks to the use of an expansion chamber, the gear reducer can be installed in any position. There are no limitations, since there is no dependence on a bleed plug. The sealed reduction geared motor keeps the gear oil of the gear motor in optimum condition because of its entire operating life time. The gear reducer is suitable for discontinuous use, working class s3-30%, with a maximum activation time of 25 minutes.
The Gear box reduction gear motor has an FT85 motor assembly flange, to which a suitable IEC standard motor can simply be installed (EN 50347).
The Gear box has a rotating limit switch system with operating switches and circuit breakers (NC contacts) for turning off at the end positions. The limit switch system is installed in an integrated chamber and is enclosed by an impact-resistant plastic material cover. The limit change system is accessible and easy to adjust. The limit change system’s optimum switching range is usually 40 or 64 revolutions of the drive shaft. The cabling is linked in spring-clip connections. The gear driver has an IP68 M16 x 1.5 cable gland (5-9 mm cable) for the cable feed-through.
The reducer for greenhouse comes with 16 teeth 5/8”x3/8” sprockets, keys and fasteners. The accompanying chain couplings and assembly plates can be found as accessories.
