For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are a sophisticated option due to their wide speed range, low temperature 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 external switch, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Acceleration control systems typically use gearheads to increase output torque. Gear types range between spur, worm or helical / hypoid based on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to based on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are high performance and durable and feature a compact and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors Center-drive gear motor optimized for performance. This is achieved through the consistent application of aluminum die casting technology, which ensures a high degree of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing at the same time.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for each order and customer. A advanced modular system permits an excellent diversity of types and a optimum amount of customization to consumer requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are safeguarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated remedy does not only simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low rate. The speed specifications for these motors are regular speed and stall-acceleration torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, making more torque offered. Gearmotors ‘re normally used in applications that require a whole lot of force to go heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. Nevertheless, dc motors may also be used as gearmotors … a lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have a number of advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify design and implementation through the elimination of the step of separately designing and integrating the motors with the gears, therefore reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is usually that having the right combination of electric motor and gearing can prolong design life and invite for the best possible power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate electric motor and gear reducer are connected together and result in more engineering time and cost along with the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and ultimately 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 noise reduction, increase in strength and improved life, which allows for improved functionality in smaller deals. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types which can be mixed; for example, the right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long term magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
