Geared motor company Parvalux has introduced a new windscreen wiper motor, developed for large wiper applications.

The Viper 3 geared motors are designed and built to operate reliably in variety of environments including marine and withstand harsh conditions including, dust, liquids, extreme temperatures and wide variances of humidity.

The standard motors have IP protection from IP42 to IP56 and are equipped with multiple mounting options with added support structures.

A large brush design reduces wear on the brushes in higher speed modes aimed at contributing to a long-life and reliable performance, explained Parvalux’s Paul Smale.

Reduced wear

The motors are also designed to operate with reduced gear wear compared to other types of wiper motors on the market thanks to the combination of composite materials, a larger diameter gear and a one-piece worm spindle.

“System designers are increasingly required to minimise space requirements without compromising performance and these challenges are an important factor in many automotive and transportation applications,” said Paul. “Therefore, the space-conscious design of these motors and their external measurements of just 280 x 126 x 145mm and weight of up to 4.5kg meets this demand.”

He added: “A separate mode switch with internally routed wiring eliminates clutter for a clean, minimal design.”

The motors are available in two options, the 80 and 110 Series (breakaway torque 80 Nm and 110 Nm) with two speeds for both options of 21/36rpm or 30/45rpm and provide clockwise or counter clockwise direction.
