The EP Greenhouse Gearbox is a compact and lightweight reduction gearbox with an integrated limit switch system that’s suitable for assembly of a locally available electric engine. The Gearbox is utilized in manually-managed or climate-managed ventilation and screen systems in greenhouses. The quick and easy-to-installEP Gearbox is definitely rainproof and windproof. The Gearbox has 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 transmission means that the drive shaft is locked when the reduction gearbox is not running. The completely sealed reduction gearbox comes with an growth chamber with a diaphragm to keep carefully the gear oil at a low pressure under all circumstances, even at high temps. Thanks to the use of an growth chamber, the Gearbox could be installed in any placement. There are no restrictions, because there is no dependence on a bleed plug. The sealed reduction gearbox keeps the gear oil of the Gearbox in optimum condition because of its entire operating life time. The Gearbox is ideal for discontinuous use, operating class s3-30%, with a maximum activation time of 25 minutes.

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

The Gear box includes a rotating limit switch system with operating switches and circuit breakers (NC contacts) for turning off at the end positions. The limit change system is installed within an included chamber and is usually enclosed by an impact-resistant plastic material cover. The limit change system is accessible and easy to adjust. The limit change system’s maximum switching range is certainly 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” gear reduction motor sprockets, keys and fasteners. The accompanying chain couplings and assembly plates can be found as accessories.
