Compact Drive For Swimming Pool Covers
Since its introduction to the UK three years ago, the Framo Morat ‘Compacta’ slip-on geared motor has proved to be the perfect solution for applications where space is at a premium. Supplied in the UK by R. A. Rodriguez this product is designed for repeatable positioning and reversing tasks.
An application for which these credentials have made it a popular choice is driving swimming pool covers. The unit’s economical dimensions allow it to be accommodated inconspicuously. Its compactness is achieved by the use of a spur and worm gear transmission combined with performance-optimising motors. The motor therefore contributes to the overall aesthetics of the system.

Models in the range are also up to 10kg lighter than nearest competitors of the same output torque and speed. Other important factors for this application are the motor’s quiet operation and its IP65 splash-proof housing.

Standard models offer torques up to 600Nm and the modular design of Compacta also allows easy customisation from standard parts. The design’s integral and easily adjustable mechanical limit switch complements this flexibility.

Compacta can also be equipped with electronic limit switches with up to ten set points and two end positions. These are easy to programme, provide an absolute encoder signal and therefore ensure precise positioning and repeatability.
