Encoder Ready DC Motors Have Planetary GearboxesNidec Copal announces a new RoHS compatible DC motor with planetary gearbox (HG16 series). The 0.63-in. OD (16-mm) DC motor has two axial lengths of 1.42 in. (36 mm) and 1.57 in. (40 mm) that develop rated gear motor torques of 3.47 oz-in @ 310 rpm (HG 16-030), 4.86 oz-in @ 175 rpm (HG 16-060), and 6.94 oz-in @ 85 rpm, 55 rpm (HG 16-120 and HG 16-240).

Six volt (-AA), 12 volt (-AB), and 24 volt (-AC) windings are available with each gear ratio to match a wide range of application needs. The 0.63-in. OD by 0.63-in. long planetary gearboxes are integrated with the DC motor to create a gear motor package. A 30:1 gear ratio is used with the HG 16-030 model; a 60:1 gear ratio with the HG 16-060 model; and 120:1 and 240:1 gear ratios with the HG 16-120 and HG 16-240 models, respectively.

A total of 12 models are available depending on the input voltages and gearbox ratios. Nidec-Copal can supply all models with a 0.06-in. OD (1.5-mm) rear shaft for encoders.
