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

The self-supporting TR251/46 equipment rack drive comprises a zinc-plated C-profile with a built-in compact equipment rack drive unit. The TR251/46 gear rack drive is installed 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 changed into a optimum rack force of 4200 N. Track rollers in the C-profile and guideline blocks ensure stable extension and retraction of the rack. The drive shafts of the TR251/46 equipment rack drive have long, flat-sided journals. This makes it possible to match drive shafts (prefab) installed with weld/sleeve couplings or chain couplings, after the house units have been installed. The drive shafts are locked in the couplings by the accompanying shaft retaining clips. The TR251/46 gear rack drive is easy to maintain.

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