Geared Motor has overall length of 186 mm.

TPM 50 geared motor rotary actuator incorporates ac servo motor and high-precision planetary gearing. Maximum output torque is 500 Nm at mass moment of inertia of 2.9 kgcmÂ-². Low-speed motor reduces rotor inertia, while mass inertia is reduced on gear side by integrating pinion directly into motor shaft, thus eliminating need for clutch. With load inertia of 150 kgcm² at output,...
