Two speed reducer

Two speed reducer

Two speed reducer

(OP)
Looking for a gearmotor that will automaticaly switch to slower speed to increase torque when higher torque is required.

Then return to higher speed when lower torque is required.

I assume that amp draw may trigger the speed switch. I have seen these used in applications, but I do not know the make of the drive package or whether it is the motor speed change or the reducer ratio change.

I am assuming it is a reducer ratio change to increase the torque at the slower speed.

Does anyone have any helpful information where I can get more details?

RE: Two speed reducer

Dealing with electronic packaging, this is really the wrong forum to field this question.  I suggest posting in the Mechanical Engineering and Other Topics forum.

How about a regular reducer with a 2 speed motor?

I agree with the above. Don't complicate things if you don't have to.
