An epicyclic gear train (also known as planetary gear) includes two gears mounted so that the centre of one gear revolves around the center of the various other. A carrier connects the centres of both gears and rotates to carry one equipment, called the planet gear or world pinion, around the additional, called the sun gear or sun wheel. The planet and sun gears mesh to ensure that their pitch circles roll without slide. A point on the pitch circle of the planet gear traces an epicycloid curve. In this simplified case, sunlight gear is set and the planetary gear(s) roll around sunlight gear.
An epicyclic gear teach can be assembled so the planet gear rolls within the pitch circle of a set, outer gear ring, or ring gear, sometimes called an annular gear. In cases like this, the curve traced by a point on the pitch circle of the earth is a hypocycloid.
The mixture of epicycle gear trains with a planet engaging both a sun gear and a ring gear is named a planetary gear train. In this case, the ring gear is generally fixed and sunlight gear is driven.
Epicyclic gears get their name from their earliest software, that was the modelling of the movements of the planets in the heavens. Believing the planets, as everything in the heavens, to end up being perfect, they could only travel in perfect circles, but their motions as seen from Earth cannot be reconciled with circular motion. At around 500 BC, the Greeks developed the idea of epicycles, of circles venturing on the circular orbits. With this theory Claudius Ptolemy in the Almagest in 148 AD was able to predict planetary orbital paths. The Antikythera System, circa 80 BC, acquired gearing which was able to approximate the moon’s elliptical path through the heavens, and also to improve for the nine-season precession of that route. (The Greeks could have seen it much less elliptical, but instead as epicyclic motion.)

Parallel shaft Gearmotors
The S Series style produces this gearmotor particularly effective for pump, blower applications and fan. To meet up the needs of customers in these sectors, the S Series is also available in the ft . or flange types and will be completed with a wide variety of electric motors entirely made by EP. Asynchronous motors both IEC and compact (B-BE-BX/M-ME-MX), servomotors (BMD) and reluctance motors (BSR) could be in conjunction with the S Series: with the breadth of its portfolio, EP provides consumers with a superb balance of efficiency, expense effectiveness and dynamics.
