The new metal planetary gear train allows for higher torque providing greater durability and reliability with improved protection against shock and vibration loads.
With 8 gear ratios available (16:1 to 643:1) the brush dc MG16B gear motor series develops a range of rated torques from 1.42 oz-in @ 800 rpm to 42.5 oz-in @ 17 rpm. Using the same gearboxes the brushless dc LB16MG gear motor series (with integrated driver) generates 1.42 oz-in @710 rpm to 42.5 oz-in @ 18 rpm.
Available input voltages for the MG16B include 6, 12 and 24 volts dc and 6 and 12vdc for the brushless LB16MG version. Nidec Copal also provides a lower cost HG16 series of 16 mm gear motors using resin planetary gears.
