  AC Servo Motors
BSM N-Series    BSM A-Series
BSM B-Series    WBSM Washdown Series


BSM N-Series

The N-Series brushless servo motors provide a very responsive acceleration in a rugged, durable design with high energy Neodymium Iron Boron magnetics. This series provides continuous stall torque capability ranging from 3.9 lb-in (o.45 N-m) to 354 lb-in (40 N-m). Peak torque capability is nominally 4 time continuous. This series has the lowest inertia to provide the maximum torque per package size. This is the best overall performer for general applications.

BSM A-Series

The A-Series of brushless servo motors provide a very responsive acceleration in a durable design using Samarium Cobalt magnetics. This series provides continuous stall torque capability ranging from 6.8 lb-in (0.77 N-m) to 366 lb-in (41.3 N-m). Peak torques are typically 4 times continuous. Inertia is identical to the N-Series. For applications pushing performance and temperature envelopes, this series performs at its best.

BSM B-Series

The B-Series of servo motors provide "normal" brushless acceleration response with a time proven, reliable ferrite magnetic design, which has long been used in Baldor brushless servos. This series provides continuous stall torque ranging 14 lb-in (1.6 N-m) to 177 lb-in (20 N-m). Peak torques are 3 times continuous. Inertia typically ranges 4-10 times higher in order to provide inertia matching for heavier loads. The B-Series provides an economical package best used in applications with higher load inertias.

WBSM Washdown Series

The Washdown brushless motors are designed for material handling, packaging, and other applications where motors are exposed to washdown conditions. The WBSM Series include features such as: Stainless Steel Shaft Extensions, Stainless Steel Hardware, Double Sealed Bearings, Seals and O-Rings, Welded Sealed Stator Stack, and Premium Moisture Resistant Wire to name a few.
