Oriental Motor (UK) highlights service and accessibility at Drives and Controls 2022

25 March 2022

Among the highlights of the Oriental Motor (UK) stand – J110 – at this year’s Drives and Controls will be the popular AZ Series, as well as a wide selection of motors, drives and actuators available from the company.

The AZ series is popular for its broad range of communication options, with support for major protocols including EtherNet IP, EtherCAT and Profinet. 

In addition to a leading performance capability of 1,000 steps per revolution of the motor (with each step representing 0.36 degrees of rotation), it also features microstepping, which increases this to 10,000 steps/revolution or 0.036 degrees/step using magnetic control to split each step into smaller ones.

With the elimination of the conventional PID loop used in servo motors, the design affords precision fine-tuning of parameters (e.g. load, motion profile, environmental temperature) to maintain a high performance. The absence of a PID loop also significantly reduces the part’s cost; the AZ series is often less than half the price of an equivalent power servo motor.

Other advantages are: there is no need to retune to maintain optimal performance (where the servo motor over-corrects itself or is unable to settle into position) or chatter (where rapid hunting causes vibration and noise). In applications that are not rigid, such as belt-driven pulleys, the AZ series can easily accommodate a flexing belt. 

The ability to accelerate and decelerate faster than an equivalent power servo motor makes the AZ series the perfect choice for rapid indexing and short movement applications.

The AZ series is ideal for use in applications 750W / 1hp and under.

Whether you are looking for a motor for integration into automation systems for food processing and packaging, transportation, robotics, motor control or energy efficiency, Oriental Motor (UK) staff will be on the stand and ready to share their knowledge and experience to help you find the most suitable motor for a specific project. 

The company can provide advice on sizing and motor selection, using a checklist of parameters, such as size, energy consumption, as well as motor design where weight, size, acceleration and deceleration rates all need to be considered.

The company’s range of AC controllers, DC controllers, gearboxes will be showcased at Drives and Controls 2022, together with Oriental Motor’s wide selection of drivers, including analogue drive, closed-loop and open-loop drivers as well as other options.

In addition, there will be a wide-ranging selection of motors – brushless and DC types, as well as induction motors and linear actuators; stepper motors and variable speed models. Oriental Motor (UK) also has various rotary stages, servos and fans.

Visit Oriental Motor (UK) at Stand J110, Drives and Controls 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham (5-7 April).
