Product Announcement from BEI Kimco Magnetics
Oct. 13, 2011 - BEI Kimco Magnetics, a company of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST), Inc., recently met the challenging motor requirements for a meat cutting tool in a food processing application. Key to the product's design specification was an Ingress Protection (IP) IP65 washdown rated motor that could operate under a continuous load of 100 in-oz at speeds of 6,000 rpm.
Using their proven experience in developing custom brushless motors for other industries, BEI Kimco designed the IP65 washdown rated DIH27-63-BDNA Brushless DC Motor with peak torque capabilities of 450 oz-in. The new motor incorporates a machined, aluminum housing with black anodized coating that offers excellent corrosion resistance. A robust cable strain relief, a sealed bearing and completely enclosed system guards against leak and provides added protection for the internal electrical connections. The motor measures 2.7" in O.D and just over 6.0" in axial length, and has an operating temperature range of 155º C.
"Typically BEI's markets have not needed IP65 protection," explains Walter Smith, Applications Engineer for Motors. "Our expansion into Ingress Protected designs will allow us to penetrate new niche markets and provide efficient cost effective solutions for a broader range of demanding industrial applications".
The new IP65 rated motor meets the splash proof requirements of most applications with humid or moist environments and can be fully customized to match individual customer requirements for voltage, current, and operating speed.
BEI Kimco products have been used successfully in countless applications from high-end Industrial to Military and Aerospace to Medical applications. The ability to provide high performance solutions tailored to the specific needs of the customer has allowed BEI Kimco to fulfill many challenging requirements.
