Fort Smith, AR—Baldor Electric Company, a manufacturer of energy saving industrial motors, mechanical power transmission products, drives and generators, announces a new dc brushless motor and control system that will allow adjustable speed applications to benefit from the features of brushless technology. Typical adjustable speed applications include mixers, blowers, indexers, feeders, and conveyors.

Baldor’s family of BSM25C and BSM33C brushless motors provide designers with benefits of brushless motors, which include higher torque and more power in smaller packages, reduced maintenance, and quieter operation. These motors are available from stock, with standard NEMA face/foot mount, ranging from .25 to 3 HP (0.18– 2.2Kw).
The new BMC series controls require no programming, but provide a tight speed regulation better than 0.5% and use the industry standard input command (+/- 10Vdc) or optional pot input for speed control. The control uses standard 115/208/230 Vac and is available from stock.
The combination of BSM motor and BMC control is adjustable to cover a wide speed range to 7,000 rpm, provide adjustable acceleration time from 0.1– 30 seconds. The combination comes in a fully protected package including motor overload, short circuit and electronic inrush protection.
