Q: What are the backlash specifications of your AC motor and brushless motor gearheads?

A: We do not publish backlash specifications for our AC motor and brushless motor gearheads because they weren't designed for positioning applications. However, we do realize that AC motors or brushless motors can be used for positioning applications, and it all depends on application requirements such as positioning accuracy. By structure, our AC motor and brushless motor gearheads use mostly spur gears which are also used in our SH geared type step motors. We list the backlash for our SH type spur gears at approximately 1~2 deg. You can use this as reference data/estimate.
