New Harmonic Drive FHA-C Mini 24V Servo Actuator with Dual Absolute Encoder and Panel Mount Connectors!

— FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE —

Harmonic Drive FHA-C Mini 24V Servo Actuator

Introducing Dual Absolute encoder versions of the FHA-C mini actuator, featuring BiSS-C bi-directional communication for both encoders.  The dual encoders are incorporated in essentially the same package size as the long-standing FHA-C mini single incremental encoder version. Without increasing the size, the dual absolute encoder offers single turn absolute position at the output, without the need for battery back-up.  Panel mount connectors come standard, and customers can choose between 4 exit options.

The FHA-C mini Series is a family of extremely compact actuators that deliver high torque with exceptional accuracy and repeatability.  The actuator combines a high precision Harmonic Drive® gear component with a pancake brushless servo motor.  A single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) gear output encoder has been integrated along with a single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) motor input encoder providing a true absolute encoder that does not require a battery within 360° of rotation of the output.  Typical multi-turn encoders monitoring the motor input shaft require a battery to store the current position when power is lost to the system; however, the dual absolute encoder overcomes this need.  In other words, No Battery Required. When power is restored the actuator knows its position.

Features include:

  • Zero backlash
  • Incremental, Absolute or Dual Absolute Encoder
  • 24VDC winding
  • High-torque/weight and torque/volume ratio
  • Optional flex-rated cables with sealed connectors

New 20mm Linear Stepper Motor now available from Nippon Pulse

RADFORD, Va. – Nippon Pulse is excited to introduce its smallest linear stepper motor yet, the PFL20 Linearstep. The PFL20 is a highly efficient, high thrust tin-can linear actuator with a 20mm diameter and a bipolar winding.

PFL20 is RoHS-compliant, has a 30/60mm effective stroke, and can reach 6 N of force at 200 pps. With 24 steps per revolution, the lead screw has a 1.2mm thread pitch; the PFL20 also reaches 5V rated voltage, resistance of 33 Ohms/phase and inductance of 12mH/phase. The datasheet with additional specifications can be found here.

The simple structure of Linearstep motors – just a threaded rotor hub and lead screw – helps to save space and reduce costs, due to fewer components needed compared to systems that convert rotary motion to linear. Linearstep motors are also easy to control, and can be ordered with unipolar or bipolar windings and a variety of usable voltages. In addition to the 20mm motor size, this motor is also available in 25mm (captive or non-captive option) and 35mm diameter sizes.

Nippon Pulse’s tin-can linear actuators, including the Linearstep, are also available for customization; contact an applications engineer to learn more about our customization capabilities.

ADVANCED Motion Controls introduces the FE060-25-EM – FlexPro Digital Servo Drive

Available immediately, the FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces.

FE060-25-EM Digital Servo Drive

At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size, the footprint of the drive is approximately the same as two standard postage stamps. In other words, four of these drives can fit on a standard business card.  Even with its small size, the FE060-25-EM can supply brushed, brushless, stepper, and linear servo motors with up to 25 amps continuous current and 50 amps peak current.

Features include:

  • 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size
  • 10-55 VDC supply voltage
  • 25A continuous current
  • 50A peak current
  • Highest power density servo drive from ADVANCED Motion Controls to date
  • EtherCAT Communication
  • Incremental encoder and BISS C-mode feedback
  • Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
  • Configuration and full loop tuning
  • IMPACT architecture

A developer version is available for proof-of-concept and testing purposes – part number FD060-25-EM. It comes with an FE060-25-EM soldered to a larger board that is equipped with various connectors for simplified interfacing.

Projected Industries & Applications:
The small size of the FE060-25-EM makes it perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.

About FlexPro:
FlexPro is AMC’s newest family of digital servo drives. With cutting edge engineering, FlexPro is meant to expand the capabilities of AMC’s already powerful and diverse product selection. The IMPACT architecture allows FlexPro servo drives to maintain the intelligence and power of larger-sized servo drives while fitting into much more compact packages. The FE060-25-EM is the first drive in the series with many more to come.

About IMPACT:
IMPACT (Integrated Motion Platform And Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC’s FlexPro drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives. The expanded processing capabilities ensure the drive’s intelligence is unmatched. IMPACT makes its debut with the FE060-25-EM. This technology will be used in subsequent FlexPro drives as well as any future custom products where it is desired.  

About ADVANCED Motion Controls:
ADVANCED Motion Controls, a U.S. company in business for over 31 years, was founded with the idea of designing and manufacturing lower cost / higher power density servo drives. The company’s focus remains to create and deliver the best motion control drives for brushed or brushless servo motors. With approximately 3 million servo axes shipped, ADVANCED Motion Controls has become one of the fastest growing servo drive companies in the world.

New LCR16 Series Linear Rotary Actuator from SMAC Moving Coil Actuators

The LCR16 from SMAC Moving Coil Actuators provides precision Z-theta motion within one small actuator, which is ideal for a pick, orient and place applications. A wide variety of LCR16 linear rotary actuators are available with either direct drive or gearbox equipped rotary units.

The vacuum-built-in shaft through the rotary motor is available for some models to prevent dust build-up in the unit.  These z-theta actuators can easily be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time with feedback capability.  SMAC’s unique, patented “Soft-Land” function enables the unit to gently land on a delicate component with a controlled force to avoid damage of both the component and the actuator.

The actuator is constructed with a direct drive brushless servo motor.  It’s designed with linear guide built-in lubrication to offer long life cycle.  Moreover, it provides absolute control over: force/torque, position, acceleration and velocity.

Features include:

  • Direct drive brushless servo motor
  • Combined linear and rotary motions in a single unit
  • Fully programmable in force/torque, position and velocity
  • SMAC’s Patented ‘Soft-Land’ Technology
  • Self-lubricated linear guide
  • Low shaft run-out, 30µm (Lower run-out optional)
  • Vacuum through shaft prevents dust accumulation
  • MTBF 100 million life cycle
