ACS Motion Control has expanded its NanoPWM™ line of ground breaking PWM (pulse width modulation) servo drives to include a new dual axis EtherCAT drive. The NPMPM Series of EtherCAT servo drive modules provide motion performance that was previously only achievable using linear drives, without the drawbacks of such linear drives. The NPMpm drives are significantly smaller, much more efficient, produce less heat dissipation, better protected and lower in cost.
The popular CleverLevel series by Baumer now includes another five LBFS product variants. The world’s most compact level switch based on frequency sweep technology now includes a cooling neck for high temperature applications, a long version for improved level detection in bulk media and with a process connection compliant to US and Far East standards.
High availability is one of the primary criteria for stacker cranes deployed in automated storage and retrieval systems. Downtime due to breakdowns is unacceptable as material flow becomes interrupted, which in turn means production lines or customers (in the case of finished good warehouses) are left waiting for items.
New planetary gearhead reaches record levels
FAULHABER in introducing the most powerful power transmission technology in its size class to the market with the new 20/1R planetary gearhead: A diameter of 20 mm allows the stainless steel gearhead to achieve continuous torque of 800 mNm, and up to 1100 mNm for short periods during interval operation. Following intensive development with a comprehensive series of tests, the power output was able to be more than tripled in comparison to previous models. The input speed reaches 12,000 rpm. The 20/1R can be combined with DC, brushless motors and stepper motors with a diameter of 17 to 22 mm.
FAULHABER brings affordable micromotor onto the market
FAULHABER is expanding its range of drives in the medium power range with the new 1727…CXR DC-micromotor, and is adding an extremely compact drive to the CXR series. A powerful neodymium magnet gives the graphite-commutated motor a high power density with a continuous torque of 4.9 mNm. It generates this power in a housing that is just 17 mm in diameter and 27 mm in length. The temperature range in which it can be used is from -30 to +100°C.
Additional power with the new FAULHABER 2668 … CR motor
The new 2668 … CR DC motor from FAULHABER offers considerably more power than comparable drives, and is the most powerful copper-graphite commutated DC-micromotor in its size class on the market. Thanks to a bigger NdFeB magnet and a high copper content in the winding, it supplies a rated torque of 70 mNm. As a result, it weighs just 189 g with a diameter of 26 mm. Furthermore, it reaches full power extremely quickly with its high pulse torque. The 2668 … CR is thus especially well suited for professional high-performance tools such as pruning shears or motorised screwdrivers.
