The SRT-030/360-026-01 is a two-axis X-theta positioning system ideal for precision motion control applications that require coordinated linear and rotary positioning. The two-axis system consists of a rotary dc servo motor with encoder mounted to a moving brushless linear-motor-driven positioning stage.
The linear axis uses an H2W brushless linear motor, the BLDM-C08, to generate a continuous force of 26 lb (115.5 N) and a peak force of 78 lb (347 N) with a stroke length of 30 in. (768 mm). The non-contact one-micron resolution linear encoder allows for precise positioning along the linear axis and is guided by a pair of precision re-circulating linear ball bearings.
The rotary axis consists of a standard 34-frame rotary servo motor with a 10,000 counts/rev resolution encoder. The motor can generate a continuous torque of 29 lb-in. (3.3 N-m) and a peak torque of 87 lb-in. (9.9 N-m). The rotary axis is removable, which allows for higher accelerations by reducing the moving mass of the linear axis. The rotary axis is capable of full 360-degree rotation.
The system can be oriented in any orientation. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier. The system features a reference mark, end of travel limit switches, and hard stops.
