The VersaPlanetary is a battle-tested modular planetary gearbox system designed specifically for use in the FIRST ® Robotics Competition 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.

All of the VersaPlanetary gearboxes include mounting plates & hardware for typical FIRST ® Robotics Competition motors (550, 775 Series, 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 FIRST ® Robotics Competition 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, 775 Series and AM-9015 motors
  • Interface with the CIM and Mini CIM motors with the VersaPlanetary CIM Adaptor
  • Dozens of gear ratios from 3:1 to 100:1
  • Dual Motor Input available
  • AGMA 11 quality steel gears

Technical Specifications

    Material Type:
  • Gears - Rockwell C 55-62 Case Hardened Steel
  • Gearbox Housing - 6061-T6 Aluminum
  • Shafts - 7075-T6 Aluminum

  • Material Finish:
  • Gears - Rockwell C 55-62 Case Hardening
  • Gearbox Housing - Black Type II Anodizing
  • Shafts - Black Type III, Hard Coat Anodized

Specification: VEXpro Gears Require Lubrication. We recommend white lithium grease.

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
