Phidgets TRM4161_0 #40 Chain Idler Sprocket with 12mm Bore and 13 Teeth
Idler sprockets are standard sprockets with an integrated bearing. This allows them to spin freely without impeding the rotation in your system. This is useful for when you want an adjustable way to tension a chain system that doesn't impact the movement of the chain or place additional load on the motor.
Note: A small amount of Loctite can be used on the shaft to prevent the idler sprocket from shifting laterally on the shaft if this is an issue.
- Inner Diameter: 12 mm
