For applications where variable speeds are necessary, typically an AC electric motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide acceleration range, low temperature and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and clean low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual procedure on the driver or by an exterior switch, or with an external 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 needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to depending on space constraints or style of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is made possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. This is attained through the consistent application of aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high amount of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing concurrently.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for each order and customer. A sophisticated modular system permits a great diversity of types and a maximum amount of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, defined end positions are shielded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated option does not only simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation moving forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-velocity torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, making more torque obtainable. Gearmotors ‘re normally used in applications that require a whole lot of force to go heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors use ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors may also be used as gearmotors … a lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify design and implementation through the elimination of the stage of separately creating and integrating the motors with the gears, hence reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors can be that getting the right combination of electric motor and gearing can prolong design life and invite for the best power management and use.
Such problems are normal when a separate engine and gear reducer are connected together and result in more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment causing bearing failure and ultimately 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, all of which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes could be mixed and matched as had a need to irrigation gearbox greatest fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types that can be combined; for example, the right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox can be combined with long term magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
