Haydon Kerk Pittman, a business unit of AMETEK Advanced Motion Solutions, announces the latest addition to its line of brushless dc motors: the EC042B IDEA Motor Series. The new motor is 42-mm in diameter and integrates a high-torque, precision brushless servo motor with an IDEA Drive in a single compact unit. The IDEA Motor enables distributed control without the use of a costly PLC or external motion controller.
The EC042B IDEA Motor is offered in three motor lengths with continuous torque up to 0.15 Nm with integrated inputs, outputs, encoder, and RS-485 communication. The GUI (Graphic User Interface) integrates a trapezoidal and S-curve trajectory generator with a movement profile plotter. The IDEA Motor can store and execute multiple programs with I/O driven nested, prioritized, and vectored interrupts as well as polled I/O for autonomous real-time control. Users familiar with the current IDEA Drive GUI will recognize the layout and appreciate the expanded features of the GUI.
Haydon Kerk Pittman standard PLG42S and PLG52 gearboxes are available as factory options. Torque ratings for PLG42S are as high as 14 Nm while the PLG52 torque rating achieves up to 24 Nm. The wide range of reduction ratios and torque capabilities enable optimized performance of the EC042B IDEA Motor for highly specialized or unique motion applications. These applications include lab automation, medical devices, communications equipment, semiconductor processing equipment, aerospace systems and many other applications where precision motion and compact packaging are critical.
