Applied Motion Products PH series mini planetary gearmotors are used with small step motors in nema eight, 11, and 14 frame sizes. The small design of the gearheads allows them for pairing with small motors and will not adversely affect the outside dimensions of the combined gearmotor.

These gearmotors are used in applications where space is critical. Small motors usually don’t produce enough torque for demanding applications.

Mini planetary gearmotors are offered in three frame sizes: 22, 28 and 35 mm. Each component of the gearbox is machined to exacting tolerances before being assembled into the final reducer. The result is a gearhead that can accept input speeds up to 6,000 rpm and provide high output torques with minimal backlash.
