For applications where variable speeds are necessary, typically an AC motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are a sophisticated option due to their wide quickness range, low warmth and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and clean low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual operation on the driver or by an exterior change, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Quickness control systems typically make use of gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range between spur, worm or Center-drive gear motor helical / hypoid based on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending on space constraints or style of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and show a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is made possible through the mixture of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. This is achieved through the constant application of light weight aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high amount of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for every order and customer. A advanced modular system permits a great diversity of types and a optimum degree of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are safeguarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated alternative does not just simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation moving forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low acceleration. The speed specs for these motors are normal speed and stall-velocity torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, making more torque available. Gearmotors are most often used in applications that need a whole lot of force to go heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors can also be used as gearmotors … a lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other styles of motor/equipment combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify style and implementation through the elimination of the step of separately developing and integrating the motors with the gears, thus reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is that having the right combination of engine and gearing may prolong design life and invite for the best possible power management and use.
Such problems are normal when a separate motor and gear reducer are linked together and result in more engineering time and cost as well as the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty components, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth designs that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in power and improved life, which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application form, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are numerous of motors and gearbox types which can be mixed; for example, a right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
