The ETR251/46 equipment rack drive is a low-maintenance, purpose-designed drive for starting and planetary gearbox closing swinging-air flow vents in Venlo-type greenhouses. The combination of TR251/46 gear rack drive and aEP RW engine gearbox contributes to an optimum greenhouse climate because of accurate positioning of the air vents.

The self-supporting TR251/46 equipment rack drive comprises a zinc-plated C-profile with a built-in compact gear rack drive unit. The TR251/46 equipment rack drive is mounted to a greenhouse gutter using the item clamp-mounting forks or bows.

Thanks to the apparatus reduction stage (i-2.76) and the pinion of the TR251/46 equipment rack drive, the drive torque is effectively converted into a optimum rack force of 4200 N. Track rollers in the C-profile and instruction blocks ensure stable expansion and retraction of the rack. The drive shafts of the TR251/46 gear rack drive have long, flat-sided journals. This can help you fit drive shafts (prefab) installed with weld/sleeve couplings or chain couplings, once the house units have been mounted. The drive shafts are locked in the couplings by the accompanying shaft retaining clips. The TR251/46 equipment rack drive is simple to maintain.

A ETR251/46 equipment rack drive with other C-profile lengths and rack lengths is available on request.
