Brush-commutated dc gearmotors - Ametek Technical & Industrial Products Inc

The Pittman Series 6000 22-mm brush-commutated dc gearmotors with planetary gearboxes meet speed and torque requirements in applications with tight design envelopes.

The gearboxes use either metal gearing for high torque capacity or plastic gearing to reduce audible noise. Both versions offer bidirectional rotation. The gearboxes range in length from 0.768 to 2.020 in., weigh from 2.9 to 3.7 oz, deliver reduction ratios from 4:1 to 429:1, come in motor lengths of 1.256, 1.556, and 1.901 in., and have maximum load capabilities from 7 to 99 oz-in. and continuous torque up to 0.70 Nm. Continuous load-torque capability varies with gear ratio, motor selection, and operating conditions.

Gearmotor features include skewed five-slot armature design, bonded neodymium magnets, two-pole stators, heavy-gauge steel housing, silicon steel laminations, and copper-graphite brushes.
