Regal Rexnord Corp. redesigned its Autogard F400 series torque limiter, offering improvements while retaining the drop-in replacement functionality of the legacy 400 series.

According to Regal Rexnord, Autogard torque limiters act as a mechanical circuit breaker to protect a drivetrain, disengaging the driving and driven sides in the event that a jam or an overload creates a torque spike exceeding its preset torque value. The next-generation Autogard F400 series is compatible with larger drive shafts and allows customers to select a smaller coupling size based on torque setting, the company adds.

Regal Rexnord says superior dirt ingress protection is available as standard to offer minimal “fit-and-forget” maintenance. Additionally, the company says the new design features a temperature resistance that enables customers to use one model for all applications with temperatures ranging from minus 22 to 176 degrees.

“The newly redesigned Autogard F400 Series demonstrates the importance that Regal Rexnord places upon continually innovating our technologies,” says Rob Hucker, director of product management at Regal Rexnord. “As well as standardizing previously optional features, we are improving upon the performance and value that we deliver to our customers.”
