Compact geared motors for precise speed holding
23 November 2012
New compact brushless geared motors achieve precise speed holding over a wide range of 1:133. Manufactured by Panasonic, the Minas GV is available at powers of 50, 90 and 130W with gearboxes that give rated output speeds from 1.5 to 1000 r/min.
The Minas GV geared motors come with compact IP20 drive only 35mm wide for panel mounting. Drives have RS485 and an analogue input plus 8 digital set speeds.
Latest Minas technology from Panasonic achieves better than 1% speed holding on motor speeds from 30 to 4,000rpm. Motors are particularly compact, for example only 65mm long at 130W, and enclosed to IP65 including optional cables. Also they are energy efficient, using typically 20% less power than equivalent AC asynchronous motors.
The compact size and precise speed holding of the Minas GV range suits it ideally for accurate conveying applications such as weighers and inspection machinery. Panasonic Minas GV geared motors are available in the UK from Techdrives.
