Bodine 34B-WX Gearmotors Now Comply with Class I, Division 2 Standards for Use in Hazardous Locations

Bodine type 34B4-WX Brushless DC (EC) Class I Div 2 Gearmotors

We now offer versions of our 34B4-WX brushless DC (EC) gearmotors that are ETL listed and comply with National Electrical Code Class I, Division 2 safety standards. Designed to reduce the risk of accidental fires or explosions in hazardous locations, these gearmotors can be used safely in environments such as petroleum refineries, dry cleaning plants and spray finishing areas.

The gearmotors feature low-voltage 12/24V DC brushless motors, eliminating the danger of high-voltage arcing and shorts. They are ideal for solar- or battery-powered applications. Upgraded terminal boxes provide additional insulation for electrical connections, and specially coated commutator assemblies further reduce the risk of accidentally igniting flammable materials.

The new 34B4-WX Class I, Division 2 designs provide all the maintenance-free, long lasting performance of a standard Bodine brushless DC gearmotor. Their high starting torque and linear speed-torque characteristics make them ideal for a wide range of variable speed applications. The WX gearhead features all-steel helical gears and synthetic lubricant for quiet operation and long life. These gearmotors offer continuous duty torque ratings of up to 205 lb-in (23 Nm) and standard gear ratios from 4:1 to 312:1. Minimum order quantities and lead times apply for these products.
