Integrated IP65 Stepper Motors October 27, 2015

SWM Integrated IP65 Step Motors

SWM Integrated IP65 Step Motors

SWM integrated steppers, from Applied Motion Products of Watsonville, CA, are IP65 rated drive+motor units, fusing step motor and drive components into a single splashproof and dustproof device.  This space-saving design eliminates wiring and saves on cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.

The SWM24 integrated steppers combine high torque NEMA 24 step motors with a sophisticated, 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) step motor drive.  Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply.  Applied Motion offers compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies for exactly this purpose.

All SWM24 integrated steppers are RoHS and CE compliant.

Control Options:

The SWM24 integrated steppers come with the choice of three control options: S, Q, and C.

  • The “S” control option means the drive can operate in the following control modes: step (pulse) & direction, velocity (oscillator), and streaming serial commands (SCL).  (SWM24 integrated steppers do not support stored-program operation with the Applied Motion 4-axis and 8-axis SiNet Hubs).
  • The “Q” control option means the drive can operate in all of the same control modes as the S option, plus the ability to run a Q program stored in non-volatile memory.  Q programs are created using Applied Motion’s Q Programmer™ software, which provides powerful commands for motion, I/O, conditional processing, multi-tasking, math functions, and more.
  • The “IP” control option means the drive is designed to operate on a Rockwell PLC-based EtherNet/IP communication network.

All SWM24 integrated steppers, whether they come with the S, Q, or IP control option, are setup and configured using Applied Motion’s ST Configurator™ software.

Encoder Option:

1000-line (4000 count/rev) incremental encoders are included in all SWM24 models.  The encoder is housed inside the same enclosure as the drive electronics, providing protection from dust, liquid and debris.  The addition of the encoder means the stepper can perform special functions not available otherwise.  Stall Detection notifies the system as soon as the required torque is too great for the motor, which results in a loss of synchronization between the rotor and stator, also known as stalling.  Stall Prevention actually prevents stalling of the step motor by dynamically adjusting motor speed to maintain synchronization of the rotor to the stator.  This unique feature allows step motors to operate in a much broader range of applications than previously available to step motors, such as torque-control applications.  The Stall Prevention feature also performs static position maintenance, which maintains the position of the motor shaft when at rest.

Inputs/Outputs:

The RS-232 based SWM24SF and SWM24QF model numbers come with 4 digital I/O points, called Flex I/O points, because each point can be individually defined as an input or an output.  As inputs, the Flex I/O points accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting pulse & direction signals, end-of-travel limit switches, jog switches, quadrature encoder signals, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types.  When defined as digital outputs, the Flex I/O points can be connected to PLC inputs, counters, lights, relays, or other devices.

The Ethernet-based SWM24S, SWM24Q and SWM24IP models come with 3 digital inputs and 1 digital output.  The digital inputs accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting end-of-travel limit switches, jog switches, quadrature encoder signals, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types.  The digital output can be connected to PLC inputs, counters, lights, relays, or other devices.

All SWM24 model numbers come with 1 analog input. The analog input accepts 0-5 VDC signals and can be used for velocity and position control.

Communication Ports:

SWM24 integrated steppers with the S and Q control options are available with either RS-232 or Ethernet ports for programming and serial communications.  For single-axis applications where no serial networking is required the RS-232 option is recommended. RS-232 version also supports Modbus/RTU communication.  For applications where communications over a network are required the Ethernet option is recommended.

Nippon Pulse Tin-Can Stepper Motors Ship < 1 Week September 29, 2015

add a comment

The PF/PFC series tin-can stepping motors are conventional magnet-driven rotary stepper motors with a permanent magnet in their rotor core.  Rotating in proportion to the number of pulses sent to the motor, the stepper motor is frequency synchronized and can change speed depending on the frequency of the pulse signal.

Because of its high torque output and low profile construction, applications for tin-can stepper motors include, but are not limited to, printing, packaging, and medical devices.

New High Precision Gear Reducers from GAM Gear

The GAM EPL inline planetary gearbox is widely known as the best value on the market because it offers the best quality available for the price point.  We’ve added some features that make it an even better value and unequaled in its class and ideal for most servo applications.

Gam EPL Planetary Gearhead

Why are Hypoid Gearboxes Ideal for Right Angle Applications? August 19, 2015

Posted by Servo2Go.com in New Product Press Releases.
Tags: , , , , ,
add a comment

This example will compare a traditional planetary bevel gearbox (left) with a hypoid gearbox (right), in a 5:1 gear reduction ratio.

Planetary Bevel Gearbox
By construction, a planetary bevel gearbox is the combination of an input bevel gear stage and an output planetary gear stage.  In order to achieve any gear reduction ratio, this type of gearbox always requires two or three gear stages. In this example, the first stage is a 1:1 bevel gear ratio and the second stage is a 5:1 planetary gear ratio.  For a 3,000 RPM application, the motor speed is continued throughout the entire first gear stage, which means the input bearings and seals, gears, and output bearings and seals are all rotating at 3,000 RPM.  The actual reduction doesn’t occur until the planetary gear stage. Higher speeds throughout the gearbox means higher heat and can also result in a 50% service life de-rating for continuous applications.

Hypoid Gearbox

A hypoid gearbox on the other hand can achieve up to a 15:1 ratio with only a single gear stage.  In this 3,000 RPM application, the motor speed is immediately reduced to the final reduction speed of 600 RPM which is ideal for the gears, seals, bearings, and shaft.  A lower speed means less heat, which is important to maximizing the life and load carrying capabilities of the output bearings in a gearbox.  GAM’s Dyna Series hypoid gearbox has a 30,000 hour service life rating which is 50% more than a comparable planetary bevel gearbox.  In addition to the performance advantages of using a hypoid gearbox, as mentioned in a previous post there is also a substantial space saving benefit.  In the example above, GAM’s hypoid gearbox is 46% more compact than the planetary bevel gearbox.

2 comments

POSITAL has launched a new line of incremental rotary encoders for the motion control and industrial automation markets. These devices are programmable, which means that performance characteristics such as resolution (number of pulses per turn) and incremental pulse direction (A before B or B before A) can be modified by simply changing firmware parameters. The characteristics of the output driver can similarly be set to either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL).

Posital Fraba Programmable Rotary Encoder

Posital Fraba Programmable Rotary Encoder

The new incremental encoders are based on magnetic measurement technology and are compact, rugged and highly resistant to shock and vibration loadings. Resolution can be set anywhere in the range of 1 to 16,384 pulses per turn. They are also available with high performance seals that make them suitable for use in the most extreme environmental conditions.

Like other POSITAL motion and position sensors, the new incremental encoders are available in a very large number of mechanical configurations. Buyers can choose from an industry-leading range of features and options using POSITAL’s online Product Finder tool, then have the appropriate products built to order in less than two weeks.
