For applications where variable speeds are necessary, typically an AC motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide velocity range, low heat and maintenance-free operation. Stepper Motors offer high torque and clean low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual procedure on the driver or by an external change, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Rate control systems typically utilize gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are high performance and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is attained through the constant application of aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high amount of rigidity for the gear and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for every 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, defined end positions are safeguarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated remedy does not just simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off accuracy of the limit switches ensures safe operation moving forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low swiftness. The speed specifications for these motors are normal speed and stall-speed torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, making more torque obtainable. Gearmotors ‘re normally used in applications that need a lot of force to go heavy objects.
More often than not, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors can also be utilized as gearmotors … a lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other types of motor/equipment combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify style and implementation by eliminating the stage of separately designing and integrating the motors with the gears, thus irrigation gearbox reducing engineering costs.
Another advantage of gearmotors is certainly that having the right combination of engine and gearing can prolong design life and invite for optimum power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate motor and gear reducer are linked together and result in more engineering time and cost along with the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Developments in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty materials, coatings and bearings, and in addition improved gear tooth styles that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in power and improved life, which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application, but in the end, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are a variety of motors and gearbox types that can be combined; for example, the right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
