Low cost, high performance brushless dc servo motors and drives
15 November 2012
Applied Motion Products' new brushless dc BLDC servo motors and matched BD series drives are now available in the UK from motion control specialists Mclennan.
The new drives are aimed at cost sensitive OEM applications for driving packaging conveyors, transfer & elevating stations, material feeders, mixers & agitators, pumps, valves and closures – where straightforward speed control operation, long working life and competitive price are important considerations.
The high performance 42mm brushless dc motors are optimised for velocity loop feedback and available in three frame lengths for an impressive continuous rating of 105W, with a peak torque of 0.45Nm and speeds to 4,500rpm. The matching panel mounted BD5 series drives offer a 5A continuous and 10A peak current rating from a 12 to 48Vdc power supply.
A flexible choice of speed setting features include on-board trim pot, 0 – 5V analogue input or seven pre-set speeds selected from the drive’s digital inputs. Acceleration and deceleration may also be set from an on-board trim pot. Soon to be introduced, the BD series drives will also include a 10A continuous version to match a larger 57mm diameter motor that will offer even more power and torque performance.
Additional drive I/O includes direction, stop, and enable inputs with fault output and a motion tachometer output that may be used to synchronise other processes. I/O may be factory reconfigured to suit specific applications for OEMs along with modified shaft and mounting mechanics on the motors.
Accessories include mains power supplies, regenerative clamps and motor-to-drive cable assemblies in a choice of 1 or 3m lengths that will make installation straightforward.
