AMP launches new CSM conveyor smart motor

28 April 2023

The new space-saving CSM34 Conveyor Smart Motor is a fully integrated, gearless, DC StepSERVO decentralised drive, which simplifies conveying system design and build.

It has been launched by Applied Motion Products and is available from Mclennan.

An on-board control panel and status display makes configuration and real-time system monitoring straightforward. Mounted directly on the conveyor, the all-in-one drive reduces machine wiring and removes the need for external motion control

Based on AMP’s StepSERVO technology, the CSM34 combines the high torque capabilities of a stepper motor with the dynamics and precision of a servo system. This compact, integrated drive is easily and quickly installed, and its 20,000-hour life will outlast traditional AC induction motors or brushless motor/gearhead combinations. 

Available in a choice of two NEMA 34-frame stack lengths, the CSM34 has a maximum torque output of up to 7.46Nm, two configurable speeds, on-the-fly change of speed/direction, and additional I/O. 

The gearless, push-button controlled, long-life solution will manage and simplify a broad range of materials handling conveying applications in automated production and packaging machinery.

The CSM34 features a push-button control panel, a five-segment status display, and a spring-loaded terminal strip. Operators simply configure up to two motor speed settings and acceleration/deceleration values – a motion simulation/jog facility is also provided as a useful setup aid. The set parameters are then simply triggered via built-in optically isolated, differential inputs at 5-24V DC. 
The terminal strip also facilitates straightforward connection for alarm and in-position outputs at 30V DC/100mA. A cancel alarm input is also provided, and the status display additionally indicates a number of error codes. 
The CSM34 requires a separate 24…75V DC power supply with respective torque performance (rated/peak) from around 5 to 7.5 Nm, and a usable speed range from 0 to 2,000rpm. Suitable power supplies are available from Mclennan. 
Datasheets covering the drive’s specifications and performance with torque curves for both versions are available from the Mclennan website, as well as installation manuals and 2D/3D drawings.
Mclennan is a long-term, exclusive European distribution partner for AMP Inc. and other partnered motion control and automation equipment manufacturers. Mclennan works in partnership with its customers to bring competitive and effective solutions through a comprehensive in-house design and build capability. 

Technologies available include stepper, servo, and other motor-based automation solutions as well as mechanics such as gearboxes and positioning stages, etc. – supplied as single components or as complete motion control systems with software, training, and on-site installation as part of a complete project fulfilment service.
