Overdrive Unit has been designed to demonstrate the action of the gear elements in simple epicyclic gear arrangements. The unit may also be used to carry out experiments on epicyclic gearing.
This unit represents an application of a simple epicyclic arrangement of the type used in a motor vehicle overdrive.
Pulleys fitted with protractors are secured to the input and output shafts to enable us to determine and verify velocity and torque ratios.
The MEC unit is assembled in a metallic structure and can be wall mounted.
