VersaPlanetary Gearbox

The VersaPlanetary is a battle-tested modular planetary gearbox system designed specifically for use in the FRC market. Designers choose one of four output shafts, configure a single-stage planetary using one of six different reductions, or build a multi-stage gearbox using any of the different ratio combinations.

New for 2014! All of the VersaPlanetary gearboxes include mounting plates & hardware for typical FRC motors (550, 775, 9015 size motors, and the VEXpro BAG motor) -- these plates are custom designed for each motor to provide perfect piloting and high efficiency.

Motors can be interfaced with the gearbox using the innovative VersaCoupler, which utilizes a clamping collar design to attach a variety of motors without pressing on a motor pinion. Just find the correct motor mounting plate, mount your motor into place, tighten down one clamping screw, and you're good to go. The VersaCoupler does the rest; innovative industry technology brought to the FRC market.

The VersaPlanetary has a variety of options for mounting. Each gearbox has four 10-32 threaded holes on top and bottom of its housing for easy side mounting. In addition, there are also holes on the front which allow face-mounting. Conveniently, these holes are on a 2" bolt circle; this is the same as the CIM motor - anywhere you can mount a CIM-style motor, you can mount a VersaPlanetary.

  • Use with BAG, RS-550, RS-775 and AM-9015 motors
  • Dozens of gear ratios from 3:1 to 100:1
  • Dual Motor Input available
  • AGMA 11 quality steel gears

Weight Base VersaPlanetary Kit (with Output Shaft): 0.36 lb
Gear Kits with Ring Gear: 0.2 lb each

The theoretical weight for your VersaPlanetary can be calculated as follows:
Base Kit + (Number of Stages × Weight of a Stage)

Example VersaPlanetary Weights:
Single Stage: 0.36 lb + 0.2lb = 0.56 lb
Two Stage: 0.36 lb + (2 × 0.2 lb) = 0.76 lb
