Integrated MAC Motor with Power Rating up to 750W From JVL!



JVL which is the European leader in the development of new servo- and step motor technology, has again developed a new, unique product in the field of integrated motor control.

JVL’s new additions to the fold comprise two complete, recently developed, high-capacity MAC Servo Motors with ratings of 400W and 750W. These new products were first revealed at the Danish Herning Tech trade fair this year. The MAC motor consists of a complete servo system, including a high-dynamic AC servo motor, hall-sensor, encoder, power supply, driver and positioning controller, as well as facilities for incorporating various modules such as Profibus, CAN, Nano PLC, etc.

Low Profile Rack and Pinion Linear Actuator!



Eugene, OR- - E-Motion LLC introduces the Knudtson P-358 and P-200 low profile rack & pinion 12VDC linear actuators. These linear actuators offer a simple, low-cost solution for high-speed, medium force applications. Speeds range from 4 inches/second to 8 inches/second with force to 100 lbs, and an overall height profile of under 3". The P-358 single rack model is available with travel to 67" and 4-8 inch/second speed, and may be used as a rod-type or gantry-type actuator (external guiding required). The P-200 double rack & pinion actuator features synchronized opposing motion at 8 inches/second, with travel of up to 67" per rack, ideal for applications such as double doors. Each actuator is built to the specified travel from .5"-67", with several end connection configurations available. Delivery in low to medium quantities is typically 4-5 working days. Custom design requests are welcome.

Powerful High Speed Brushless 16 mm DC Micromotors With Speeds Of Up To 60,000 rpm!



Maxon’s EC16 is a brushless DC motor with a diameter of only 16mm, a length of 56mm and a power rating of 40 Watt!

The speed range of this fast running motor is from 0 to 60,000 rpm. Lower speeds and a corresponding high torque can be implemented with a planetary gear from the maxon modular system. Brushless DC motors need the information of the actual rotor position for the electronic commutation of the three phases. With the available motor, the proven concept to separate the control magnet from the main magnet has been applied.
