MAXPlanetary System

MAXPlanetary System

Easy to use, quick to build, and strong enough to withstand the rigors of any FRC application

The MAXPlanetary System is a cartridge-based modular planetary gearbox designed from the ground up for NEO-class motors. The design of the MAXPlanetary has been carefully optimized to provide torque density unavailable in FRC up until now.

The MAXPlanetary is intended for use with the NEO Brushless Motor, Falcon 500, and CIM motors. It also supports NEO 550 and 775 size motors (775pro or AM RedLine). Building on the ability to iterate and adjust designs easily, the MAXPlanetary System consists of lubricated cartridges allowing for swapping gear ratios on the fly and with ease. Users can configure a single-stage planetary using one of three different reduction cartridges or build multi-stage gearboxes through stacking individual cartridges together. The user can use the included 1/2in hex shaft or use a custom length of hex shaft best suited for the application. The gearbox also provides two mounting options, face mount and side mount, for ultimate flexibility in your robot design.

Start with a MAXPlanetary Base Kit, then select a gear ratio kit for the right amount of torque for the application at hand. Add a NEO Brushless Motor or an adapter kit if you want to use a different motor.

MAXPlanetary Cartridges are sold individually. Users can configure a single-stage planetary using one of three different reduction cartridges or build multi-stage gearboxes through stacking individual cartridges together.

 

1/2in Rounded Hex Shafts

Rounded Hex Shafts

 

The 1/2in Rounded Hex Shaft is a ready-to-use length of hex shaft that has been cut to length and the ends tapped. The ends are tapped 10-32 in order to accept a screw and washer or shaft collar. The 1/2in hex is compatible with the shaft retention method of the MAXPlanetary output stage.
