Applimotion‚â€™s ULT Series direct drive frameless motors have become quite popular for low profile Gimbal systems. Due to their low profile, light weight and large through holes, these motors are ideal for imaging, sensing, pointing, and scanning applications. Compatible with any three phase motor controller, even pc board mounted chip sets, the motors meet the needs of OEM companies looking to integrate a motor into their platform.
For example, the ULT-44 motor shown above is 44 mm in diameter, 10 mm long and has a 38 mm through hole.
ULT motors can easily be wound for system operation from 5 volts to 300 volts. Applimotion routinely optimizes the electrical windings to meet these voltages and the desired application speeds. Speeds are available from 1 revolution per day to 10,000 rpm with the appropriate feedback device.
ULT motors from Applimotion cover 44-533 mm diameters. Through holes are available up to 86% of the motor outside diameter on some versions. The motors are now available in super high torque versions for high power rate applications and slotless versions for zero cogging.
