Application Spotlight: EZ-F Powered Clutch

Adaptive Technology, LLC developed their EZ-F (Electric Zero-Force) powered clutch system to assist motorcyclists with left hand and arm issues by reducing the required handle pressure from 11-15 lbs down to 8-10 oz.  Their product found a broader market, though, beyond those with reduced hand strength:  anyone who rides in heavy traffic and constantly pulls the clutch handle can benefit from upgrading to an EZ-F.

When Adaptive Technology, LLC, was seeking the perfect motor for their application, they were thrilled to find AM Equipment's 218 Series DC Gear Motor.  It is an 18 Nm motor, and they're using the 12 V version with the left-hand housing.

We're excited to be part of this new and empowering product.

An added bonus:  Adaptive Technology, LLC is based in Oregon, just like AM Equipment!
