Hyponic® - Right Angle Drive

What are service factors and how are they used?

In general, reducers and gearmotors are rated for specific conditions and operating requirements of the application by the use of AGMA-defined Service Factors.  There are three AGMA load classifications for reducers: uniform (U), moderate shock (M) and heavy shock (H), and three AGMA load classifications for gearmotors: I, II, and III. Refer to our catalog for a list of AGMA load classifications. These Service Factors are used in the product selection process to adjust for the specific conditions and operating requirements of your application.
