BCI motor

BCI - standard product, benchmark quality
Whether they are to be found in machinery, doors, vehicles, hospitals or even out on the golf course, they are the driving force in Great Britain. Although they are often put to use in quite basic applications, even these pose requirements that need to be fulfilled in the best possible way - we wouldn’t be ebm-papst if we didn’t have a first-class solution.

The excellent quality, reliability and long service life of our BCI series are what make the difference. Embodying our engineers’ best ideas in every single detail, each BCI excels in terms of performance, load rating and flexibility. And thanks to the high quality standards maintained at ebm-papst, they are extremely well made. Their versatility makes this product range a suitable drive solution in countless applications. Whatever your voltage and installation space requirements, we can provide the appropriate combination of gearboxes, sensors and brakes, all of which will also be available from your ebm-papst distribution partner very soon.
