Parker Bayside Combines Servo Motor and Helical Planetary Gearhead
April 12, 2006—The Stealth line of gearmotors from Parker Bayside represents the first time a brushless servo motor and a helical planetary gearhead have been integrated into a single product.
According to the companys press release, the motor magnets are attached directly to the input gear shaft, eliminating the extra couplings, shafts and bearings normally required. The servo gearmotor simplifies installation by eliminating potential configuration and assembly problems associated with conventional separate motor/gear packages. Available as both in-line and right-angle units with operations for metric/NEMA configurations and special output shafts, flanges and/or windings, the gearmotor can save space. Component compatibility is assured.
Units are available with 160 vdc or 300vdc windings and ratios from 5:1 to 100:1 for a variety of speed and torque range. Encoders, resolvers and brakes are offered as standard options without increasing the overall unit size.
