The HW Series from Applied Motion Products’ are NEMA 23 and NEMA 34 frame IP65 Rated Stepper Motors constructed for operation in severe environmental conditions.

IP65 Rated Step Motors

IP65 Rated Step Motors

These new models, dust proof and resistant to low pressure water jets, are ideal for applications in wet factory environments such as the food and beverage industry or outdoor use.  Key features include a nickel plated brass cable gland, sealed laminations, a front shaft contact seal and an optional IP65 rated encoder cover for use with products that require feedback.  All models have an internal corrosion-resistant film coating as standard.  For improved protection in high-humidity environments an advanced coating is available as an option.

IP65 specifies a product that is dust tight (no ingress of dust; complete protection against contact) and protected against water jets (water projected by a nozzle from any direction shall have no harmful effects).

Motion Control HybridizationMotion control:   Traditional stepper-motor systems represent the only motion-control technology able to operate in open loop—although the addition of position feedback to enhance performance is on the rise.  Simpler controls, lower cost components, and other innovations keep stepper systems competitive with servo motion systems in numerous applications.

Galil has just released the latest model in the DMC-40×0 Accelera Motion Controller Series. There is now a -C022 option that provides two Ethernet ports for easy-daisy chaining of multiple controllers. The -C022 option is available for 1- through 8-axis versions of the DMC-40×0 motion controller. For example, DMC-4060-C022 specifies a 6-axis model with dual Ethernet ports.

Galil DMC-4000 Motion Controller

The DMC-40×0 is part of Galil’s latest generation Accelera series. Based on a powerful RISC processor Accelera controllers provide ultra high-speed with 40 microsecond command processing,  up to 32kHz servo update rates, and acceptance of encoder inputs up to 22MHz. Other features include optically isolated inputs and outputs, high power outputs for driving brakes and relays, uncommitted analog inputs, dual encoder inputs for each axis, and plenty of program memory for storing application programs.

The DMC-40×0 provides precise control of a variety of motors including brush servos, brushless servos, steppers and piezo ceramic motors. It can be easily connected to external drives of any size or to internal multi-axis drives contained within the DMC-40×0 controller.  The DMC-40×0 controllers with internal drives reduce space, cost and wiring. Table 1 shows the  multi-axis drive options available for the DMC-40×0 series.

Internal multi-axis drive options

As a combined controller and drive unit, the DMC-40×0 is compact and measures 8.1” x 7.25” x 1.72” for the 4-axis model and 11.5” x 7.25” x 1.72” for the 8-axis model. The unit accepts power from a single DC supply between 20-80VDC.

White Paper: Detection and Shielding of Noise in Stepper Motor Systems March 20, 2013

Posted by Servo2Go.com in Technical Support Information.
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,
add a comment

Stepper Drive and Motor“Noise” or “Interference” consists of unwanted electrical signals which superimposes on and masks the desired signal. Designing a control system is challenging enough, but designing a control system that has noise immunity adds a whole other dimension. Ideally, you want the noise-to-signal ratio to be as small as possible. Noise is always present in a system that involves high power and small signal circuitry….

ElectroCraft Stepper Motor

(Recorded: Tuesday, June 26, 2012, 2:00 pm ET)

This pre-recorded webinar will review some of the basic parameters necessary to properly select and apply stepper motor technology to motion applications. Topics included in this discussion will be a review of basic stepper speed-torque behavior including the stepper over-voltage ratio, a stepper in constant current operation vs. a stepper in voltage drive region, thermal ratings, the impact of winding changes on dynamic behavior, calculations and considerations for intermittent duty operation, motor/system accuracy, failure modes, and the application of all these criterion when applying stepper-based linear actuator product.

Engineers currently using stepper technology in their motion applications want to understand how to apply stepper motor technology to get the best result should attend this webinar.

In this webinar you will learn:

-Basic parameters necessary to properly select and apply stepper motor technology

-How to understand the stepper motor speed-torque curve and how to apply this to the application

-The main factors to consider when trying to optimize a stepper motor in a variety of applications
