Pittman Motors, a business unit of AMETEK Precision Motion Control, introduces the DC032A Series of brush DC motors, the latest addition to its broad range of DC brush and brushless motors. The DC032A series is a high torque density motor designed in a rectangular package. Its compact size and high-power density makes it especially suitable for portable equipment and power tools.
The motor body cross section measures 25 by 32 mm. It is available in three motor lengths with continuous torque from 0.027 – 0.034 Nm. The DC032A series has a maximum speed of 6500 rpm and can be used with DC bus voltages up to 48 volts. There are 8 standard winding variations to suit every project. Custom windings are available to further match exacting end-product requirements.
The motor construction features a high-energy, 4-pole stator with rare earth magnets. The 13 slot commutation design minimizes torque ripple. The armature slots are skewed for optimum reduction of reluctance torque (called LO-COG). Shielded ball bearings support the motor shaft; they are preloaded for low vibration and quiet operation.
DC032A motors are available with optional Pittman G35A gearboxes and H type incremental encoders.
