Getting its name from the way the gears rotate like the planets around the sun, the Planetary Gear Box is a precise, high quality gearbox with a RC-260 motor built into the gear box itself to add to its compactness. A wide range of gear ratios can be attained, and two kinds of crank arms are supplied for a wider range of functions.
This is a Planetary Gear Set from the Technicraft Series by Tamiya. FEATURES: A highly versatile system for reduction of high RPM electric motors to high-torque low RPM applications. Often used in precision instruments because of the reliability and accuracy of the unit. The RC-260 motor included in this set utilizes carbon brushes for long motor life. RC-260 motor operates on 3 volts. Combining the gearboxes in various ways enables 8 different gear ratios (4:1, 5:1, 16:1, 20:1, 25:1, 80:1, 100:1, 400:1). At a gear ratio of 400:1 and voltage of 3V, the gearbox produces a torque of about 15 kg. Pictorial instruction sheet included. INCLUDES: One Technicraft Planetary Gear Set.
