New Planetary PMDC Gearmotors Provide up to Twice the Torque!


We are excited to introduce our new type 24A4-60P planetary gearmotors. This integral gearmotor design combines our high-performance type 24A PMDC motor with the all-new 60P (60mm) planetary gearhead. It is ideal for applications that require higher torque than conventional helical/spur gearheads of a similar size can provide, and where very low backlash gearhead is not required. Typical applications include conveyors, pumps, packaging, industrial automation and wide range of solar- or battery-powered equipment.

Our initial product launch includes twenty-four (24) standard models with gear ratios from 4:1 to 162:1. These stock models are offered with 90/130V, 24V or 12V windings. Rated torque ranges from 4.6 lb-in (0.5 Nm) to 226 lb-in (26 Nm). The 24A-60P gearmotor is designed to meet IP-66 ingress protection standards (an optional face mount seal kit is required to seal the output shaft to IP-66). Stock models are available with either US/Inch or Metric drive shaft and mounting details.

All-new type 60P Planetary Gearhead

The new 60P gearhead is designed and manufactured by Bodine Electric Company. This unvented gearhousing mounts in any orientation. The gearhead is permanently lubricated with a high-performance grease, and features needle bearing supported, hardened steel gears for long life and maximum performance. The standard backlash of this gearhead is less than one degree (<60 arc min).


The 24A-60P planetary gearmotors and their corresponding flange mount accessory kits are available through Bodine’s extensive distributor network or from the Bodine web site. Custom designs are available to qualified OEMs. Typical OEM modifications include factory installed encoders or brakes, custom windings or wire harnesses, and application-specific mounting and shaft details.
