Model RW400 - Motor Gearboxes



The RW400 motor gearboxes are maintenance-free, compact drive units for operating ventilation, screen and lifting systems in greenhouses and livestock houses. All RW400 motor gearboxes feature a self-braking worm gear transmission. This transmission ensures that the output shaft is braked when the drive unit is stopped. The combination of carefully matched pinion and worm reductions results in a very quiet mechanical transmission. The RW400 motor gearboxes feature a patented integrated linear limit switch system with duty and safety switches having excellent switching precision. The maximum switching range of the limit switch system equates to 86 revolutions of the drive shaft. The optional RPU PositioningUnit accurately monitors the current position of a drive system and transmits this data back to your climate computer or controller. This position feedback can also be achieved using an installation set with a potentiometer.

The RW400 motor gearboxes are finished with a graphite grey powder coating and are supplied including fixing bolts and spring washers.
