Robot Power Magnum775 gearmotor
The Robot Power Magnum775 is a robust low-cost gearmotor which includes the planetary gearbox and a powerful RS775 motor.
The gearbox output shaft is 0.5" diameter and 3" long with a precut keyway for easy mounting of wheels and sprockets.

The Magnum775 includes a planetary gearbox with a 20:1 reduction ratio. This ratio gives approximately 700 RPM
output speed at low load at 14.4V. A heavy steel ring gear supports the steel planet gears riding on hardened steel pins.
Note the final stage gears are twice as thick as the first stage gears. This helps the Magnum775 to handle the high torque
produced by the 775 motor at heavy loads. The 3" long 0.5" diameter output shaft is supported by dual high-quality sealed ball bearings.
As with all gearbox shafts a heavy load or high shock loads on an unsupported shaft can exceed the strength of the structure.
For the most robust design support the outer end of the shaft with a ball bearing.
The Magnum775 is assembled with and mounted to the motor by high quality socket head bolts. No soft phillips head screws to strip here!
Magnum775 ring gear and motor mouting details
While the Magnum775 may seem lengthy but in fact it is just under 5" from the front of the gearbox to the back of the motor.
This is actually shorter than many power drill gearmotor combinations with the added strength and convienence of the mounting flanges.
The shaft diameter of the motor pinion is 5mm. This allows other motors with a 5mm shaft to be used assuming the mounting holes match.
Other makers of 775 sized motors offer compatible motors allowing for upgrades or different voltage ratings. Please verify the motor dimensions
and mounting configuration.
The Magnum775 is quite compact
The Magnum775 may be mounted to the target application via the 10-32 mounting bolts to the edgees or face of the gearbox.
A clamp style mount may also be used around the the motor can. If the gearbox is mounted securely it is not normally necessary to
support the motor can but for high-vibration or shock applications supporting the motor along with the gearbox is recommended.
