Thank you for purchasing the integrated Simple Pump Solar-Ready Motor.
The motor is a 24-volt DC unit that delivers the most amount of torque available in this size motor.
The linear bearing link drive translates the rotary action of the Simple Pump 24 volt DC gear motor to move the pump rod up and down on a precision ground and polished stainless shaft guided by two linear TEFLON bearing carriers.
Just like the Simple Pump itself, your gear motor assembly and control box have been built giving great care to precision. When moving parts are at work, precision parts move more easily… and this means less wear, and a longer service life for the equipment. So, please assemble with Finesse, NOT Force.
- Motor Rating (24VDC): .151 HP continuous
- Gear Ratio: 30:1 @ 91.0% efficiency
- Output Torque (24VDC): 195 in/lbs. continuous
- Output Torque Maximum: 400 in/lbs. @ 45.9RPM @ 16.63 amps
- Nominal Output RPM: 60.1
- Efficiency: 64.24%
- Full Load Motor Current: 7.32 amps
- Allowable Voltage Range: 24 to 30 VDC
- Typical temperature of casing, operating in 72 degrees F ambient. 128 degrees F
DC motors operating in ambient temperatures above 100 degrees F lose operating efficiency — the hotter the ambient temperature, the less efficient. If the temperature at the planned site regularly peaks above 100 degrees F, we recommend operation of the motor in shade.
