Series 116-8 - 1.6" Planetary Gear Motor (Metal)
The Hansen series 116-8 gear motor matches our 1.6" diameter DC brush motor with a metal planetary gearbox. This is an ideal motor for medical applications where strong, coordinated, accurate motion control is required. The planet gears share the load attached to the output shaft giving the planetary arrangement a higher torque to volume ratio with low backlash compared to a spur gear arrangement. Gear ratios up to 2653:1 are available. Encoders can also be added.
