New High Torque Hybrid Stepper Motors from Applied Motion Products

Applied Motion Products of Watsonville, CA are pleased to release details on their NEW HT24 series of high torque hybrid stepper motors.

AMP's New High Torque Hybrid Stepper Motors

The HT24 motors are a new frame size step motor offering up to 30% more torque than the previous HT23 series in a similar package size. The only significant difference in size between an HT23 and HT24 is that the HT24 has a larger shaft diameter.

HT24 motors are ideal for applications where more power is required but changing to a size 34 motor is not possible.

HT24 motors are available with single or dual shafts, and all motors are optimized for microstepping.

Applied Motion Products adds CANopen option to SV Servo Motor Drives

WATSONVILLE, CA – Applied Motion Products announces an increase in the range of CANopen products by the addition of CANopen communications to the SV series Step Motor Drives. Adding a CANopen option to the SV series Servo Drives adds a third drive to Applied Motions list of CANopen compatible products, with more to come.

AMP's SV Servo Drives with CANopen

The SV drive develops 7A continuous and 14A peak and has eight digital inputs, four digital outputs and two analog inputs.

SV CANopen drives have Applied Motion’s Q programming language on board. This has the added advantage that Q programs written and stored in the drive and then a command can be sent over the CANopen network to trigger the program. The user can also read and write to registers over the CAN Network changing parameters within the stored Q program.

Applied Motion Products adds CANopen option to ST Step Motor Drives

Applied Motion Products announces the addition of CANopen communications to the ST series Step Motor Drives.

AMP's ST5 Stepper Drive with CANopen

The addition of a CANopen option card to the range of communication options allows the drives to be controlled by a CANopen master utilizing the DS301 and DSP402 communications protocols and the CAN 2.0b Passive physical layer. Using these standard protocols the drive can be commanded to execute point to point moves, homing routines or run at a set velocity. ST CANopen Drives are available in 5A and 10A versions. Each has eight digital inputs, four digital outputs and two analog inputs. ST drives are configured using ST Configurator software.

CANopen is utilized by OEM machine builders to integrate many devices of different types on a single field bus connection. Drives such as the ST can be put on the same network as sensors and interfaces. The user then has a single learning curve to develop programs that can communicate to all compatible devices. Up to 132 devices can be connected on a single CANopen Network.

Harsh Environment Brushless Servo Motor

Maxon’s EC22HT motor is designed to withstand harsh environments, such as extreme temperatures, high shock loads and vibrations, as well as high ambient pressure or vacuum. Even submerged operation in oil is possible.

Maxon's EC22 High Temperature/Shock Servo Motor

Faultless operation has been demonstrated in an extended ambient temperature range of -55°C up to 200°C – all internal components are designed to withstand temperatures of at least 240°C.

External shock loads and vibrations can be absorbed over the entire temperature range without damaging the motor.

The motor is available both with and without Hall sensors. If required Hall sensors come as a package added to the back of the motor in a similar style to that of an encoder.

Tiny, but tough. New 8mm diameter Servo Motor from Maxon

Maxon releases a new family member of Maxon EC micro drives family – the EC 8.

“Tiny, but tough”. The EC 8 convinces by its high torque of 0.92 mNm in the 5 digit speed range. Thus, the motor closes the power gap between the populr EC 6 and EC 10 motors.

Maxon's EC 8 Brushless Servo Motor

Besides the well-known advantages of an EC motor – durability and high speed range – the motor offers an efficiency of approximately 70%. This is being accomplished by an optimized design of the magnetic return and the use of high quality neodymium magnets.

In addition to top performance, the EC 8 is manufactured to the Medical Standard ISO 13485.

Contributing to it’s high quality is a laser welding process for the asembly of the motor/gear and shaft/pinion, whereby the combination comes in one single piece.

The EC 8’s intelligent assembly concept perfectly suits manually assembled lots, as well as fully automated high volume production.

With its outstanding qualifications, the EC 8 motor feels is found in many applications, such as: Sampling robots, insulin pumps, portable analyzers, collimators, surgical microscopes, dosing systems, meters and numerators, inspection robots and a many more.

As a summary:  The EC 8 is a high torque, compact motor, built according to the highest quality standards.

Sterilizable Brushless EC Size 5 & EC 13 Servo Motors

The new 50 Watt EC motor is based on the same design as the 30 Watt motor and uses identical components.  It is characterized by its high nominal speed and the extremely low-noise and low-vibration operation.  The motors are especially suitable for the use in electric powered, weight and size optimized surgical power tools. Special attention has been set on lowest possible heat generation.  The 50 Watt motor is 11 mm longer (total length 50 mm) and delivers 50% more torque. It may be applied where the smaller motor’s power is not sufficient.

Maxon's EC 5 50Watt Sterilizable Servo Motor

Maxon’s EC5 50 Watt Sterilizable Motor

For use in high speed medical applications up to 90 000 rpm, the motors are designed for use with or without specially matched sterlizable planetary gearheads. The motors are characterized by their high nominal speed, an extremely low noise and low-vibration operation, marginal thermal emission and small size.

Small, precise and incredibly fast. These motors are especially suitable for use in electric powered, weight and size optimized surgical power tools. The differentiating factors of the two motors are their outer dimensions. They are shaped for their respective geographic field of application – Size 5 (the industry’s customary term for ½ inch) for the American market, the metric 13 mm variant for the European and Asian part.

Adapted for medical technology applications, the EC 5 and EC 13 sterilizable brusless motors feature a compact design with very high nominal speed, quiet running, minimized thermal emission and sterilizability of typically 500 autoclave cycles. Both motors are available either equipped with Hall sensors or sensorless as well as with three different windings. The gearheads come in versions with one, two or three stages as well as with or without output end shaft sealing.
