Netzer DS-58 Absolute Position Rotary Encoder with 18 bit resolution

Netzer’s world-wide patented, rugged high performance Electric Encoder™ technology, suits a wide variety of applications ranging from space and avionics, through military and defense, to instrumentation and automotive.  Netzer Rotary Encoders feature absolute or incremental position feedback providing analog or digital outputs.

Netzer DS-58 Encoder

Netzer DS-58 Encoder

The Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoder™ relies on interaction between the measured displacement and an internally shielded, space/time modulated, electric field and offers features unsurpassed by traditional optical and magnetic encoders.

The DS-58 is a member of the DS series of Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoders™, based on Netzer Precision proprietary technology.  These encoders offer many advantages, some unparalleled:

  • Low profile (17 mm) & low weight
  • 18bit resolution
  • < 0.02° accuracy
  • Analog Sin/Cos, Digital SSi , or Digital AqB+I  outputs
  • Hollow, floating shaft
  • No bearings or other contacting elements
  • Low power options
  • Analog or multiple digital interface options
  • High tolerance to temperature, shock, moisture, EMI, RFI and Magnetic fields

SilverMax NEMA 23 Frame Direct Drive Series by QuickSilver Controls Inc.

QuickSilver Controls, Inc.  is proud to introduce a new full range of NEMA 23 frame Direct Drive Hybrid Servo Motors .  Four stack sizes provide 80 oz-in (.56 Nm) through 430 oz-In (3 Nm) continuous torque, with top speeds from 1000 – 4000 RPM.

QuickSilver Controls SilverMax Motors

QuickSilver Controls SilverMax Motors

Hybrid Servo motors are very well suited for Direct Drive applications – eliminating the need for gear heads in most applications.  These high torque motors match well to loads in the 500-2000 RPM speed range, typical of lead screws and belt drives, and can provide a significant increase in both power and efficiency over conventional servo motors in these speed ranges.

The PVIA control system includes patented damping methods to allow wide ranges of inertial mismatch without retuning or notch filters, reducing the need for inertial matching of the motor to the load. 100:1 inertial mismatch ratios are easily tuned.

The intuitive command language allows for easy program creation/modification/debug using the free QuickControl® environment available from their web site.  The programming environment provides for two programming threads in addition to an active motion.  Sophisticated programs can be easily implemented. Serial communications include MODBUS® RTU, 8bit ASCII, 9bit binary, and DMX512. CANopen® is simultaneously available with the serial options.

Seven IO are provided for external interfacing.  Programmable terminations allow the IO to be pulled high, pulled low, or floated while in input mode. All of the IO may also be used as analog inputs, with one channel also supporting 0-10v analog control.

New DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller from Galil Motion Control

Galil DMC-500x0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller

Galil DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller

The DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Controller is Galil Motion Control’s newest entry in its latest generation of digital motion controllers.  Incorporating all of the features of our flagship Accelera series controller and designed with compatibility and flexibility in mind, the DMC-500×0 allows integration of remote EtherCAT drives into new and existing applications with just a handful of configuration commands.  The DMC-500×0 is offered in 1 through 8 axis formats.  Axes 1 – 4 can be configured as either local or EtherCAT drives while axes 5 – 8 can be configured for additional EtherCAT drives.

Unique to the motion control industry, this ability to mix and match local and EtherCAT drives on the same controller provides increased flexibility for any application.  In addition, the DMC-500×0 is fully compatible with Galil’s internal servo and stepper motor amplifiers as well as third party external drives.

ATR: The Fastest Direct Drive Rotary Motor by Akribis Systems

Akribis ATR Direct Drive Rotary Motor

Akribis ATR Direct Drive Rotary Motor

The ATR is another revolutionary direct drive motor from Akribis Systems.  The patent-pending design provides the motor with super high torque and low rotor inertia at the same time.

In our ATR design, we replaced the conventional rotor back iron with another set of coils.  The removal of the back iron significantly reduced the rotor inertia.  And the additional inner coils result in much higher torque output.  These combined features give ATR unparalleled dynamic performance.

Features include:

  • Super high torque and low rotor inertia
  • Excellent dynamic performance
  • Fastest direct drive rotary motor
  • Various sizes with air/water cooling options
  • Ideal for indexing applications

Galil White Paper: Advanced Applications of Electronic Gearing

Part 1 of 3: Tension Control on Spindle Wheel

Introduction

Electronic gearing in motion control allows for a slave axis to follow a master axis with a programatically set gear ratio.  There are certain applications that obviously lend to an electronic gearing solution, but there are some challenging applications where the functionality of electronic gearing can greatly simplify a solution in a manner that may not seem obvious at first.  This series of three papers will discuss how electronic gearing can provide simple solutions to different motion control challenges.

Tips for Designing Clean Room Equipment

Mechanical components intended to run in clean rooms for wafer fabrication must comply with uniform industry standards that dictate the number and size of particles they can generate.

As the computer and electronics industries pack more circuits on semiconductor wafers, particle generation in the clean rooms where they are processed becomes more critical with each generation.  In many applications, mechanical positioning stages are a large contributor to contamination.  Suppliers are required to follow special design criteria that ensure a positioning stage’s cleanliness according to certain standards…
