The DC gear motor is a general DC motor coupled with a matching gearbox. The Direct Current (DC) motor is a rotating electrical device that converts direct current, of electrical energy, into mechanical energy. The role of the gearbox is to provide lower speed and higher torque. At the same time, different gear ratio of the gearbox can provide different speed and torque. This will greatly increase the use of DC motors in the automation industry. DC gear motor refers to the combination of reducer and motor, also commonly known as a gear reducer. It often features high transmission precision, small volume, low noise, durability, low energy consumption, long service life, etc.
According to the motor type adopted, the DC gear motor can be divided into brushless DC gear motor (BLDC gear motor), brush DC gear motor, stepper gear motor, etc. The DC gear motor mainly comes to reduce the output speed. As the motor is equipped with the reducer, the speed of the motor can be reduced. Furthermore, it can not only reduce the speed but also improve the output torque of the motor. It also can reduce the inertia of the load. The gear ratio expresses the ratio of the output torque to the input torque. The output torque here can not exceed the rated torque of the gear motor.
DC gear motors are widely used in intelligent automobiles, intelligent communication, intelligent robot, intelligent logistics, smart city, electronic products, personal care tools, industrial automation equipment, smart home, precision instrument, outdoor adventure equipment, photography equipment, etc.
