The EP Greenhouse Gearbox is a compact and lightweight reduction gearbox with a limit switch Gear motors for Greenhouse system that is suitable for assembly of a locally available electric motor. The Gearbox is utilized in manually-managed or climate-managed ventilation and display systems in greenhouses. The quick and easy-to-installEP Gearbox is certainly rainproof and windproof. The Gearbox includes a high protection course (IP65) and can be utilized in an ambient temperature of 0-60 °C.

The low-noise Gearbox for Greenhouse has a gearwheel transmission and a worm wheel transmission, which are integrated within an aluminium precision housing. The self-braking worm wheel tranny means that the drive shaft is usually locked when the reduction gearbox isn’t running. The completely sealed reduction gearbox has an growth chamber with a diaphragm to keep carefully the gear oil at a minimal pressure under all conditions, even at high temps. Thanks to the use of an growth chamber, the Gearbox could be installed in any position. There are no restrictions, because there is no need for a bleed plug. The sealed reduction gearbox keeps the gear essential oil of the Gearbox in ideal condition because of its entire operating life time. The Gearbox is suitable for discontinuous use, operating class s3-30%, with a maximum activation period of 25 minutes.

THE APPARATUS box reduction gearbox comes with an FT85 motor assembly flange, to which a suitable IEC standard motor can simply be installed (EN 50347).

The Gear box includes a rotating limit switch system with operating switches and circuit breakers (NC contacts) for turning off by the end positions. The limit switch system is installed within an integrated chamber and is usually enclosed by an impact-resistant plastic-type cover. The limit change system is accessible and simple to adjust. The limit switch system’s optimum switching range is 40 or 64 revolutions of the drive shaft. The cabling is connected in spring-clip connections. The Gearbox comes with an IP68 M16 x 1.5 cable gland (5-9 mm cable) for the cable feed-through.

The Gearbox for greenhouse comes with 16 teeth 5/8”x3/8” sprockets, keys and fasteners. The accompanying chain couplings and assembly plates can be found as accessories.
