Allied Motion Technologies Fully integrated powered wheel drives
The WheelMax steering series wheel drive assemblies are fully integrated, electrically powered traction wheels with onboard steering systems for electric vehicles. Each drive combines a traction wheel with tire, epicyclic gearbox, robust steering gear and bearing system and two PMDC brush motors—one for traction and one for steering power. The compact assembly is designed for easy mounting and requires little to no maintenance. The drives handle loads up to 227 kg (500 lb) and provide 14 Nm (120 lb-in) of continuous torque at speeds of up to 5 km/hr (3 mph).
