Crouzet boosts brushed and brushless micromotor offering
17 February 2012
Crouzet has added two new products to its brushed and brushless dc micromotorsportfolio. The new brushless motor is recognised by it 57mm square section front face and comes in three compact sizes offering output powers of 66, 90 and 150W. It complements the functions provided by the Motomate product family, which features an integrated electronic speed and torque controller.
A standard USB cable links the motor electronics to a PC running Crouzet's parameter definition software, which can be downloaded from the Crouzet website. In addition to this standard software package Crouzet can also offer integrators tailormade parameter definition tools to suit their specific requirements.
Crouzet can satisfy specific requirements such as motor length, shaft connector and communication bus on request. The motors are equipped with six inputs (two analogue plus four AON) and four outputs (of which two are AON or PWM), enabling intelligent motor interconnection or connection to other systems such as PLCs. They are also available in combination with planetary and right angle gearboxes from the standard Crouzet range. The new motor itself incorporates a 4096-point encoder with the new Smi21 electronics unit (not a PLC) featuring several ready-to-run programs.
The new brushless motors are particularly suitable for small standalone machines which perform positioning or metering functions.
The new dc brushed motors offer a minimum service life of 5,000 hours when used at nominal power. Under reduced load conditions, this can be as long as 10,000 or even 20,000 hours.
