Ovoid Gearboxes re-engineered
& available from stock
Designed to fit a wide variety of instrument motors, the popular P5 ovoid gearbox has been re-engineered to offer a shorter manufacturing lead-time for high volume applications. Ratios from 25:6 to 15,000:1 are available and comprehensive stocks of the 15 most popular ratios are carried. As well as additional standard ratios, many other options are available such as custom shaft lengths, double output shafts, integral torque limiting clutches or free-wheels.
P5 series gearboxes incorporate precision spur cut brass gears and steel pinions mounted on spindles running in bronze alloy bearings which feature lubrication reservoirs for extended life, control accuracy and high dynamic performance. Full compatibility is available with the following motor ranges manufactured by leading motor manufacturer, Premotec B.V. -
- DC Motors, to provide 0.2-720RPM at rated torque of 1.5-80Ncm. Potentiometers can be fitted to provide an analogue reference signal proportional to output shaft position
- Permanent magnet stepper motors, to provide 200-720,000 steps/rev at output with working torque from 1.5-100Ncm
- Reversible AC synchronous motors, of 24, 110 and 230Vac to provide rated speeds from 60RPM to 1 rev/hour* at rated torque from 1.2-100Ncm. (* based on the use of 250RPM AC synchronous motors)
The gearboxes can also be fitted to motors manufactured by other manufacturers including Portescap, Maxon, Faulhaber and Danaher Motion. The precision construction of the gearbox makes it ideal for a wide range of applications such as medical analysis equipment, pumps, valve actuators, CCTV pan and tilt mechanisms and other process control equipment.
