IP Rating for RK series?

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Thu Apr 04, 2013 11:23 am

Q: What is the IP ingress protection rating for your RK series step motors? I cannot find this specification in your literature. I'm trying to use this in an outdoor antenna application.

A: For the non-terminal box type, the RK series step motors have an IP20 rating. For the terminal box type, we offer IP65. We would suggest that you select one of our IP65 terminal box type motor/package models for your application. If you have to use one of our IP20 models, then we would suggest that you enclose and protect our motor from the environment and also allow for ventilation.

ADDITIONAL INFO: IP65 is the highest IP rating we offer for step motors and brushless motors. We can offer IP67 on our FPW series AC gearmotors.

Here is the IP ratings chart if you are not familiar with IP ratings (please scroll down for more information):
