IronHorse cast iron worm gearboxes (worm gear speed reducers) are mechanical power transmission drive components that can drive a load at a reduced fixed ratio of the motor speed. The IronHorse worm gearbox line now includes left hand shaft models in four frame sizes, and six gear ratios from 5:1 to 60:1. Constructed of cast iron one-piece housings, the worm gearboxes feature a C-flange input. Designed to change drive direction by 90 degrees, worm gearboxes are used when space is at a premium, such as for conveyors, or to simplify mechanical design. IronHorse gearboxes are mountable in any direction, except motor pointing up. Prices start at $147; the full line is normally available for same-day shipping and is backed by a one-year warranty. Worm gear reducer mounting bases are also available for ease of installation.

Gain More Visibility for Your Substation with IEC 61850 MMS Solution
In substations, real-time monitoring is always of critical importance. However, for those substations whose operations run on a large number of legacy devices, real-time monitoring can be a big challenge. While most substations are open to the idea of retrofitting, they are most of the time curtailed by tight budgets. For them, the ideal solution is one that bridges a legacy infrastructure to an IEC 61850 network without breaking the bank.
