MAXPlanetary 5:1 Cartridge


An individual cartridge for the MAXPlanetary System. This cartridge is a 5:1 gear reduction.

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 Vortex Brushless Motor, NEO Brushless Motor, Falcon 500, Kraken X60, 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.
