PS540-401-115 Replacement?

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:40 am

Q: I have an old PS540-401-115 AC motor with a piggyback type speed controller right on the motor. I also have the 5GN30KA gearhead. The motor finally stopped working after all these years. Do you offer a direct replacement?

A: Unfortunately, we do not offer a direct replacement motor, but we do offer a very similar motor and speed controller package that can fit in the same footprint. The difference is that the new motor will not have the piggyback type speed controller on top of it. It will be a remote type speed controller which is connected to the motor by means of pigtail cables that's included with both the motor and controller. Since the motor will not have the controller on it, this means the motor can actually fit into a smaller space.

The old 5GN30KA gearhead will still work with the new motor, but most of our newer products have a longer life rating, including gearheads, so I would suggest that you replace your gearhead for the best performance. The new gearheads are also quieter and are RoHS compliant.
