Drive System for Intelligent Lift Socket

The socket is a common household appliance. The traditional socket is fixed on the wall and cannot be moved. Extendable socked may be needed when the line of the plug is too short, especially when the household appliance is too heavy to move. On the other hand, users may be exposed to fire danger due to abnormal socket. It will be dangerous for children if the electricity from the socket is leaked. A lift socket may be a better choice. ZHAOWEI develops a gear motor for the intelligent lift socket, which can go up and down like an elevator.


ZHAOWEI micro-drive system can be applied to intelligent lifting sockets. The sockets are embedded and installed under the table. You can press the button then the intelligent lifting of the socket will be accomplished by the forward and reverse rotation of the lift motors. The lifting system of the lift socket consists of the inner board, gears, cover rack, screw and lifting nut, the battery, circuit board, and motor. The screw goes with the output shaft of the motor through the lifting nut, and the circuit board and the controller are connected through the signal. An 8mm planetary gearbox (reducer) with tiny modulus gears is adopted, which makes full use of the limited space. Through the insert molding structure, the product is lightweight and enables the lift socket to hide under the desktop or pop up by one-button operation. The rising or falling process will stop when obstacles are encountered.


Parameters of the Gear Motor for Intelligent Socket

Voltage: 3.0-7.0V

Direction of Rotation: CW & CCW

Frequency: 2400pps

Stoke: 6-15cm

Time: 0.3-3S


Noise: 50dB (test in the distance of 10cm)


In this design, 2-stage, 3-stage, 4-stage transmission is optional. The reduction ratio, output speed, and torque of the gearbox can be customized according to the customer requirements.


Market Trend

The upgrade of consumer demand will lead to the gradual maturity of the smart home industry. ZHAOWEI is committed to helping more electrical equipment manufacturers in micro gear transmission, improving their products and developing products that conform to consumer trends.
