For applications where adjustable speeds are necessary, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option due to their wide acceleration range, low temperature and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and even low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual procedure on the driver or by an external change, or with an external 0~10 VDC. Rate control systems typically use gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid based on torque needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to based 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 manufactured possible through the mixture of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is accomplished through the consistent application of light weight aluminum die casting technology, which ensures a high amount of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for every order and customer. A advanced modular system permits an excellent diversity of types and a maximum amount of customization to customer requirements.
In both rotation directions, defined end positions are safeguarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated alternative does not only simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the finish positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches guarantees safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low speed. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-rate torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, which makes more torque offered. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that require a lot of force to move heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. Nevertheless, dc motors can also be utilized as gearmotors … a lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have numerous advantages over other types of motor/equipment combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify style and implementation through the elimination of the step of separately creating and integrating the motors with the gears, thus reducing irrigation gearbox engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors can be that having the right combination of engine and gearing can prolong design life and allow for the best power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate electric motor and gear reducer are linked together and lead to more engineering time and cost along with the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and ultimately reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the utilization of new specialty components, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth designs that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in power and improved life, which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to best fit the application form, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types which can be mixed; 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.
