The harsh environment IP66 motor and gearmotor line from Groschopp is designed for long life and trouble-free operation in applications where dust or moisture are present. Designed and built with special physical and electrical protection features, these products are protected against dust, which may cause premature commutator, brush and bearing failures, and water, which may cause corrosion or electrical failures. Water ingress can be created by condensation that forms as a result of temperature change. Oil intrusion also is a risk, particularly with brush-type motors, which may stick and fail if exposed to oil. The line includes AC induction, permanent magnet DC and brush-less DC models.
