Oriental Motor Announces Release of 120 W (1/6 HP) Brushless Motor & Driver with Optional Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear

Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear with Stainless Steel Shaft and IP66 rated

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular BMU Series with the introduction of our 120 Watt (1/6 HP) IP66 new connector type Brushless motor combined with a hollow shaft right angle hypoid JH type gear head, featuring a stainless steel shaft.


The right-angle hollow shaft hypoid JH gear achieves IP66 class protection through the use of a stainless steel shaft, oil ring, oil seal and new motor connector type. And since torque is not saturated with the new right-angle hollow shaft hypoid JH gear, the maximum output torque is available at each gear ratio.

The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 3,600 r/min (80 to 3,600 r/min). Speed ratio of 1:45 is achieved. This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.

Brushless DC motors compare the setting speed with the speed feedback signals from the motor at all times and adjust the motor's applied voltage. For this reason, even if the load changes, stable rotation is performed from low speed to high speed. Unlike three-phase inverter driven motors, the torque at low speed is not limited, so brushless DC motors are suited for applications that require constant torque from low speed to high speed. Using brushless DC motors can also contribute to long lasting, maintenance free solutions, downsizing and space saving and overall energy savings.

The IP66 rated Hypoid right-angle JH gear with stainless steel shaft is currently available for the 120 W (1/6 HP) brushless motor & driver packages, starting at $561 and available to ship in 9 business days. The JH gear will be available for 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) motor models in the future.

The Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear's key features are:
• Stainless steel shaft, IP66 rated
• Broader and stable speed range compared to three-phase inverter driven motors
• New motor connector type
• Available now for 120 W (1/6 HP) brushless motor & driver packages
• 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) motor models will be available in the future.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
