Motor and gearbox
The Smart Gear g350 is a compact mechatronic drive unit combining a gearbox, motor, electronics and software. The g350 unit blends the motor and gearbox elements, so the gear ratio slips far into the motor housing. The integrated electronics and software make it possible for a fixed motor speed to be easily adapted via a user-friendly app for any NFC-enabled smartphone. At the same torque, speeds ranging from 42 rpm to 216 rpm can be freely selected at the g350 gearbox output, resulting in a drastically reduced number of variations. This reduction then affords cost savings because fewer in-stock components and less engineering efforts are needed. Additionally, the g350 features integrated ramp functions and brake control options to ensure that conveyed goods are transported smoothly and safely without jerking motions that can damage materials and increase wear and tear on machine components.
