Showing Questions of 13

Can this be mounted horizontal as well as vertical?

A: Yes this can be mounted horizontal or vertical.

Do you have a similar motor with a higher duty cycle? I need similar but for continuous use

A: We have nothing comparable with a continuous duty cycle at this time.

Will the motor run in reverse?

A: Yes. This motor is reversible.

With a 2" spool, how much can this motor lift?

A: This motor is not made to lift, only to provide torque in the original designed application (tarp drive). We cannot offer any advice or state suitability for purposes other than that. Customers have used them in numerous off-label applications, but none involving lifting come to mind.

Item #5-1720 is listed as intermittent duty. I need a gear motor like this that is continuous duty. I need to pull carb/shrimp pots from the ocean floor about 300 ft.. The motor will drive a 10" v-pulley @ 40 rpm.That 10" pulley will bring in 31.415 inches per rev. or 2.6 feet per rev. times your motors 40 rpm will bring the trap up at apx. 104 feet per minute. 3 Minutes pull time is to much for Intermittent duty. Also this motor is listed at 1890 inch pounds torque or 157.5 Foot pounds torque, that should easily raise the pots that weight 50- 60 lbs. Hope you can recommend a motor. Thank you!

A: We do not have a gear motor that is continuous duty. Our only option would be to take item 10-2574 and mate it to one of the C-Face input gearboxes to get a speed and torque rating comparable to what your application demands.

is this a self locking worm gear? Or does it have a break?

A: This does not have a brake. It is a worm gear, but with sufficient force any worm gear can be back-driven.

Would this motor be able to drive a conveyor belt moving pieces of glass that are 60 lbs?

A: Yes, but this is an intermittent duty motor and cannot drive a conveyor for more than a minute or so without needing to cool down for 5-7 minutes.

Do you ship to the UK?

A: We do ship worldwide. Please contact our Customer Support department and we can build a quote.

What is the wiring setup for this unit. Is the negative taken from the unit connection to the surface.

A: As long as the frame is also grounded to the battery to allow a current path, yes. Otherwise a direct connection will work.

Is this motor (&/or it's 600 W cousin) able to withstand a little wetness? It wouldn't be exposed to full rain, but if some rain got under the vehicle hood and sprayed it a bit, would it survive?

A: These motors were intended for use as exterior tarp drive motors on trucks. They are made to handle some degree of exposure to the elements.

What is the duty cycle? I need a number or class. Intermittent is not a class of duty cycle

A: There are no further specs available. These are designed to run the time it takes for a trailer tarp system to complete opening or closing. They draw a heavy load and will overheat if run too long.

Is there an encoder for this motor?

A: Sorry no options are available for this motor.

Will this motor run on 24 volts?

A: The manufacturer calls this only a 12 volt motor. Running on twice as much voltage would double the RPM but may greatly reduce motor life while voiding any warranty.
