The EP Greenhouse Gearbox is a concise and lightweight reduction gearbox with an integrated limit switch system that’s suitable for assembly of a locally available electric engine. The Gearbox is used in manually-controlled or climate-controlled ventilation and display systems in greenhouses. The quick and easy-to-installEP Gearbox is rainproof and gear reduction motor windproof. The Gearbox includes a high protection class (IP65) and can be utilized within an ambient temperature of 0-60 °C.
The low-noise Gearbox for Greenhouse includes a gearwheel transmission and a worm wheel transmission, which are integrated within an aluminium precision housing. The self-braking worm wheel transmission ensures that the drive shaft is definitely locked when the decrease gearbox isn’t running. The fully sealed reduction gearbox has an growth chamber with a diaphragm to keep carefully the gear oil at a low pressure under all situations, even at high temperature ranges. Thanks to the use of an expansion chamber, the Gearbox can be installed in any position. There are no restrictions, because there is no need for a bleed plug. The sealed reduction gearbox keeps the gear essential oil of the Gearbox in optimal condition for its entire operating lifetime. The Gearbox is suitable for discontinuous use, operating class s3-30%, with a maximum activation period of 25 minutes.
The Gear box reduction gearbox comes with an FT85 motor assembly flange, to which a suitable IEC standard motor can easily be installed (EN 50347).
The Gear box includes 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 within an included chamber and is usually enclosed by an impact-resistant plastic material cover. The limit switch system is accessible and simple to adjust. The limit change system’s maximum switching range is definitely 40 or 64 revolutions of the drive shaft. The cabling is linked in spring-clip connections. The Gearbox comes with an IP68 M16 x 1.5 cable gland (5-9 mm cable) for the cable feed-through.
The Gearbox for greenhouse comes with 16 teeth 5/8”x3/8” sprockets, keys and fasteners. The accompanying chain couplings and assembly plates are available as accessories.
Optimum drive torque of 150 Nm or 450 Nm.
