Bodine Motor Windings – Standard and Custom Options

Bodine Electric Company offers a range of standard gearmotors and motors with the most common voltage and frequency ratings for both the North American and International markets. 

As a manufacturer that exclusively focuses on fractional horsepower (less than 1HP/746 Watts) products, Bodine Electric also has the engineering expertise to design and manufacture a great variety of custom winding types and ratings. 

AC Induction motor windings:  are available in single-phase, two-phase and poly-phase (three-phase) designs including the following types; split-phase (with centrifugal start switch), capacitor start, permanent split capacitor, 2 capacitor start, 2 capacitor start/one capacitor run, and reluctance synchronous. These windings can be produced in 2-, 4-, 6- & 8-pole configurations and can be rated as continuous duty, intermittent duty, inverter duty, dual voltage, dual frequency and multi-speed. Our windings are available in voltages ranging from 12 to 575 VAC. Bodine Electric also provides solutions for OEM applications that require thermal overload protectors with manual or automatic resets, or simple temperature limiting switches.

Features/Benefits of various AC Motor and Gearmotor Designs:   This table was created to help you better understand the capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages of the numerous AC motor and gearmotor windings that are offered by Bodine Electric Company. Click on this link to learn more about our range of available AC motor windings: 

Permanent magnet DC motors: are available with rated voltages from 12 to 240 VDC. They can be designed in 2 & 4 pole versions and in lap or wave (4 brush vs. 2 brush) configurations. Multiple magnet grades are available for enhanced performance or added demagnetization protection. End-of-life signaling brushes, and a new proprietary brush wear sensor system are also available from Bodine Electric Company.

Brushless DC (ECM) motor windings:  Similar options and winding configurations are available for Bodine Electric’s growing line of Brushless DC (electronically commutated) motors and gearmotors. Our standard brushless DC windings are 3-phase, 4-pole designs (standard voltages are 24 VDC and 130 VDC).  Bodine Electric Company introduced the first BLDC motors, gearmotors and motor speed controls in the 1980s. Since then, we have expanded our product offering to a wide selection of custom designs with voltages ranging from 12 VDC to 260 VDC, and horsepower ratings up to 1HP/746W (our new type 48B motors/gearmotors). In addition, we offer our unique 24VDC INTEGRAmotor™ product line of brushless DC motors with built-in motor speed control and motor feedback device; and our innovative direct drive e-TORQ™ motor technology. Our standard 7-inch diameter e-TORQ motor is a 8-pole machine, the larger 14-inch diameter motor features a 16-pole winding.
