New 52mm Brushless DC (BLDC) motor design

Maxon motors new optimisation of the High Torque 52mm brushless motor gives even greater performance.

Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

The EC-i 52mm brushless DC motor from maxon has had the iron-wound internal rotor motor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. This significantly reduces the vibration and noise output of the DC motor. Available in three voltage outputs, 18, 24 and 48V the 52mm 180 W brushless DC motors produce up to 6,000 rpm.

With a correspondingly optimised magnet ring, the brushless EC-i motors with iron windings offer a very high torque density and a low cogging torque. The multi-pole internal rotor is extremely dynamic. It has a solid design, with a welded stainless steel flange and housing, making this brushless DC motor suitable for a wide range of applications such as rotary actuators, valves, robotic joints and process control.

New DMC-3×014-Box 1-Axis Controller box w/ internal 20W linear brushless servo drive w/ sine commutation

Galil DMC-30014Galil is introducing a new single axis linear drive package: the DMC-3×014. The new DMC-3×014 contains a 20W linear brushless servo drive with sinusoidal commutation. The transconductance linear amplifier has an operating gain of 0.2 A/V, with a current loop bandwidth of 4 kHz. The amplifier can drive brushless motors and voice coil motors operating at up to 1 Amp continuous, and 2 Amp peak at 15-40 VDC.

Trapezoidal commutation can have discontinuities and produce a torque ripple. This is because the torque characteristics of the motor are only taken into account in six zones. With sinusoidal commutation, the torque characteristics of the motor are mapped to all positions, resulting in continuous commutation with no torque ripple. As an additional benefit of sinusoidal commutation, Hall sensors are generally not required with Galil’s initialization commands.

As the DMC-3×014 uses a linear servo amplifier, it applies the full commanded voltage across the power transistors. There is no switching of the power as seen in PWM amplifiers. This minimizes electrical noise and the effects of motor inductance on the current ripple. This makes the DMC-3×014 ideal for using low inductance brushless motors and voice coil motors in low power applications.

The DMC-3×014 is available as an option for Galil’s DMC-30000 series of single axis controller/drive packages. The standard DMC-3×014 will use a 12 bit DAC, however there is a 16 bit option to increase the current resolution for systems with high feedback gain. A ‘–BRUSH’ option is also available, enabling the use of brush type motors. Designed to minimize space, cost and wiring, the drive reside directly inside the controller enclosure for a compact profile at a size of 3.88” x 5.00”. The U.S. list price of the DMC-3×014 is $695 US in single quantity and $445 US/ea in 100 quantities.

Application Note: Advantages of coupling of linear motors

Does your machine need a power upgrade or do you want to expand an existing design?  Coupling two linear motors is an easy and effective way of increasing the available force.  Herewith you are not just limited to using identical motors.  Various combinations can be made, as long as the motor force constant is the same.  This Application Note discusses some details of a ‘coupled application’.

Advantages of technical solutions like a coupling of motors are usually highly case-specific.  Are you thinking about a solution with either one large motor or a couple of smaller ones?  We have listed some common benefits.

Cost effective

Besides the clear advantages of ‘more force’ in a coupled motors application, there are important cost and logistics advantages. Keeping inventory of a similar coil assembly in stock for multiple machines and applications reduces cost and filed support issues. Existing designs can have multiple force capabilities standardizing on existing parts. As linear motor cost is a function of magnet size using dual coils of a smaller motor significantly adds value. This advantage becomes more apparent for longer magnet tracks.

Possible Couplings

Though the motors always have to be connected to a drive in parallel, mechanically it is possible to align them in series or parallel. Motors can move on different magnet tracks to provide even force to a larger gantry or move on the same magnet track to improve the force in one line. In both cases the total force of all motors equals the sum of individual forces.

New Tolomatic e-book:
A Resource on Electric Linear Actuators:  
What a machine designer needs to know

Industrial automation counts on the reliable motion control that linear actuators provide.  Lately, electric linear actuators have gotten more popular because they offer better control of variables like speed, acceleration, position and force than pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders.  Electric actuators also offer superior accuracy and repeatability, as well as programmable control that can handle even complex motion profiles.  In many applications they can do all this at a lower cost of ownership than pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.

Now there’s a resource from Tolomatic that lays out all the issues a designer needs to understand in order to select the best electric linear actuator for an application.  You can download a copy of our ebook resource HERE.

Download Tolomatic’s New e-book HERE and learn:

  • Why electric actuators?
  • Critical concepts of accuracy and repeatabiltiy
  • How to select the right actuator
  • Motor selection and system installation considerations
  • Electric actuator applications that improve efficiency
  • How to define a true total cost of ownership in an installation
