Fort Smith, AR – New dc brushless motors and controls from Baldor Electric Company will allow adjustable speed applications to benefit from the features of brushless technology. Baldor’s family of BSM25C and BSM33C brushless motors provide benefits of brushless motors—which include higher torque and more power in smaller packages, reduced maintenance, and quieter operation.

The new BMC series controls are simple to operate, as no programming is necessary; they provide a tight speed regulation better than 0.5% and use the industry standard input command (+/- 10 V dc) or optional pot input for speed control. The control uses standard 115/208/230 V ac 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, and comes in a protected package including motor overload, short circuit and electronic inrush protection, etc.

Typical adjustable speed applications include mixers, blowers, indexers, feeders, and conveyors.
