Two forms of mechanical variable speed drives

The Heytec range of mechanical variable speed drives is now available through AMC.

There are two forms of infinitely variable ratio drives. The K series ball and cone style system which is driven by a 0.18W motor produces speeds varying from 0.17 to 4200rpm, whilst the R series ring and cone unit can be driven by motors from 0.25kW to 1.45kW producing speeds from 0.6rpm to 5600rpm.

Options include spur and angle gearbox output shafts that are available in standard mountings. Mechanical variators incorporated with standard motors are said to eliminate many of the EMC emissions and EMI/RFI problems.
