New Lenze g500 Series Servo Adaptor Proves Less Means More

Compact and economical servo adaptor makes matching g500 gearbox and servo motors easy

UXBRIDGE, MA - June 20, 2016 - A global leader and manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technologies, Lenze Americas recently released a servo adaptor for its g500 gearbox series. The compact design of the new Lenze servo adaptor provides a more compact and cost-effective solution than using a standard input flange connection from a gearbox to a servo motor.


"Lenze brings field-proven engineering to solve tough industry challenges," states Alby King, electromechanical product manager, Lenze. "The simple yet robust g500 gearbox, in tandem with a servo adaptor, provides the design flexibility customers need in an economical solution—proving once again, less can mean more."

Designed for the North American market, the Lenze g500 series servo adaptor is offered in a range of standard input sizes for compatibility with most servo motors on the market in the U.S. and Canada. Available as an inline, right angle, or shaft mounted design, the g500 series servo adaptor optimizes available space and reduces the requirement for coupling components.

Developed to transform motor speed into torque as intelligently and accurately as possible, the finely tiered range of Lenze gearboxes are designed to minimize motor energy losses. The Lenze g500 gearbox series features energy efficiency of at least 94 percent across the entire transmission range. Lower energy use translates into cost savings and less heat generated, which can increase the overall service life of a motor.

Adds King, "The new servo adaptor allows users to easily mix and match their choice of servo motor with Lenze quality g500 motor gearing to gain efficiency and added performance advantages in dynamic and precision servo motor applications."
