Profinet option now available on ST Series linear motors
19 May 2017
The ST Series linear motor from Dunkermotoren is available with Profinet drive, DME 230x4 so extends the range which already offers CANopen and EtherCAT drive options.
In combination with this new Profinet drive option, the ST linear motors can now be easily integrated into Siemens controller environments.
The linear system with DME 230x4 provides highly dynamic motion and good controllability for quick and precise positioning. Typical applications for the ST Series ServoTube will include industrial machinery, laboratory equipment and test systems.
The absence of meshing mechanical parts, such as gears or ball/lead screws in the ST Series guarantees the dual benefits of extremely quiet operation and no maintenance. Applications with lifetimes requiring more than 60,000km of linear travel are not uncommon for the ST Series motor and are vastly superior (up to 10x) compared to pneumatic cylinders.
Speeds of up to 10m/s, accelerations up to 586m/s² (60g), peak forces up to 1860N and protection classes up to IP67, are achievable with the ST Series linear motor.
