What is a motor gearbox?
Essentially, a gearbox enables an electric motor to run at its maximum efficiency whilst changing its output speed characteristics to meet the precise specification of the application. A gearmotor is basically a combination of an electric motor and a reduction gearbox, which is usually required to deliver high torque from a low speed output. Parvalux motor gearboxes are available as geared inline and geared right angle motors.
