Oriental Motor USA: Geared AC motors
Available in 6 wattages, starting at 6 W up to 90 W, Oriental Motor’s V Series Geared AC Motors are priced the same as conventional geared AC Motors, but are said to offer higher torques, longer life, and quieter operation.
The V Series provides twice the maximum permissible torque of the GN type gearhead and two times the level of the GU type gearhead. Even if the load condition is changed to a level that normally requires a higher amount of gearhead strength, the V Series can accommodate such a change without the need to increase the size of the motor or gearhead.
The use of a larger diameter bearing serves to extend its useful life—up to 10,000 hours.
The V Series utilizes a comprehensive set of noise-reduction technologies: a special tooth-surface machining technology to remove cutting mark of 1 to 2µm from the surface of the motor shaft teeth, an optimized quiet-running design that considers the circular speed of the motor while maintaining its strength and a high-accuracy assembly technology that ensures precision at micro levels.
The motors have a built-in overheat protection device and a protective earth terminal. The motor and gearhead are pre-assembled with dedicated screws so installation is easy. There's no need to worry about the shaft being scratched.
