Customized Direct Drive Motors
Applimotion (Loomis, CA) has announced ULT, UTH, and UTS motor
kits that can be integrated into a customized
assembly with high resolution encoders
and precision bearings. This allows
the customer to control the function and operation of the assembly without having to make it in
house. Features include:
■ Diameters ranging from 8 mm
to 600 mm.
■ Torques ranging from .1 to
■ Unique through-holes and
Parker (Rohnert Park, CA) has
announced the second phase
of its HEV motors: the
GVM142 generator and auxiliary
is an electric
machine intended to be used
in electric and
vehicle accessory applications.
■ A rated power from 2. 6
k W to 30 k W+.
■ A rated torque of up to 36 Nm.
■ A rated speed range from 1,600 to 9,800 rpm.
■ Peak power densities up to 3. 7 kw/kg.
■ Operating voltages from 24 to 800 VDC.
Expanded AC Motor Line
AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA) has expanded its Marathon
AC motor line to include lower-cost, high-performance 0.5 to 5 HP
Marathon Max+ series AC motors with integrated encoders. The
230/460 VAC Max+ inverter-duty motors are designed to replace
90 and 180 V Permanent Magnet DC (PMDC) systems, and
when compared with PMDC technology, the Max+ motor is more
efficient and produces more torque per amp. Max+ series 1000:1
constant torque (TENV) motors are also suitable replacements
for multi-speed motors, single-phase motors, and as a variable
speed upgrade for standard fixed speed motor systems. Features
■ An integrated 1024 ppr encoder.
■ CSA Certification.
Servomotors with Planetary Gearboxes
Koford Engineering (Winchester, OH) has introduced 22 mm
servomotors with planetary gearboxes and optical encoders to
provide a precision motion control package. Features include:
■ Gear ratios of 3.7:1, 25:1, and 92.7:1.
■ A slotless design with zero cog.
■ A mechanical time constant of 1.5 ms for 4 pole designs and
1.9 ms for 2 pole versions.
■ Availability in 2 different motor lengths
