The EP Greenhouse Gearbox is a concise and lightweight reduction gearbox with an gear reduction motor integrated limit switch system that’s suitable for assembly of a locally available electric engine. The Gearbox is used in manually-controlled or climate-managed ventilation and display screen systems in greenhouses. The quick and easy-to-installEP Gearbox can be rainproof and windproof. The Gearbox has a high protection class (IP65) and can be used 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 transmitting means that the drive shaft is definitely locked when the reduction gearbox isn’t running. The fully sealed reduction gearbox has an expansion chamber with a diaphragm to keep the gear oil at a low pressure under all conditions, even at high temperatures. Thanks to the use of an expansion chamber, the Gearbox can be installed in any position. There are no restrictions, because there is no dependence on a bleed plug. The sealed reduction gearbox keeps the gear essential oil of the Gearbox in optimum condition for its entire operating life time. The Gearbox is ideal for discontinuous use, operating course s3-30%, with a maximum activation time of 25 minutes.

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

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

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