Clean-room compatible (to class 100) servo wheel uses a complete gearmotor system built into its hub to power small electric vehicles such as automatic guided vehicles, material handling equipment, industrial floor-cleaning equipment, and robots.
The sealed unit has no internal sparking. Reliable in explosive, hostile, or wet environments, the package provides high radial shock load capacity and has no brushes to wear out or replace.
Planetary gear reduction delivers high torque capacity in a compact design that is lubricated for the system's life to reduce maintenance. Low electromagnetic interference eliminates the need for heavy shielding, and built-in position sensing eliminates the need for an encoder or tachometer.
