Motion Control – Compact High Force Iron Core Brushless Linear Motor!

 

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —- Motion Control – H2W engineers have developed a compact high force brushless linear motor (BLSM-1F) that can generate 300 lbs [1330 N] at a 10% duty cycle and 100 lbs [444 N] at a 100% duty cycle, and, when used with a matching magnet track (BLST-FSX). The mass of the coil assembly is 19 lbs [9 Kg] which gives a force to moving mass ratio of 15:8

The motor can be driven using either a trapezoidal or digital standard three phase brushless amplifier. The Brushless Linear Motor Coil measures 6.53 in X 7.50 in x 1.50 in [170 mm x 190 mm x 38 mm]. This Brushless Linear Motor is designed for applications that require a wide speed range and a relatively high force. This motor is encapsulated using high temperature 350°F [176°C] thermally conductive potting compound which protects the components and seals it from dust and moisture.

The 3-phase brushless linear motors, also known as an AC linear servo motors, are direct drive motors that are ideal for long stroke, closed loop servo, linear motion applications. They can be used at speeds up to 240 in/sec [6 m/sec]. They are capable of very precise position, velocity and acceleration control when coupled with a linear encoder for position feedback.

The laminated 3 phase wound coil assembly is used in conjunction with a linear magnet track to produce a controlled linear force. A customer supplied bearing system is required to maintain the .060 in [1.5 mm] air gap between the coil assembly and the magnet track. There is a relatively large attractive force between the motor coil and the magnet assembly. The magnet track consists of rare earth neodymium magnets and the require overall length is equal to the coil assembly length plus the stroke length.

Advantages:

  • Uses a standard three-phase brushless amplifier
  • Multiple coils can operate on the same magnet track assembly
  • Unlimited stroke length
  • High force to moving mass ratio
  • The magnetic attractive force between the coil and magnet track assemblies creates preload for a bearing system

Typical Brushless Linear Motor Applications:

  • Conveying Systems
  • Baggage Handling
  • Coordinate Measurement Machines
  • Laser and Water Jet Cutting
  • Pick-and-Place Machinery

Motion Control – Linear Focus Actuator from Equipment Solutions

Sunnyvale, CA, —The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is a high performance compact positioning system.  It was specifically developed for optical applications requiring both high precision and high-speed positioning over a short to medium stroke.  The LFA-1205 is well suited for optical focusing and other micropositioning applications such as scanning interferometry, surface structure analysis, disk drive testing, autofocus systems, confocal microscopy, bio-technology, semiconductor test equipment.  Note that this motor is normally configured with an analog position feedback sensor and can be optionally equipped with a digital quadrature feedback element.    The key to this products immense success is its novel tubular architecture.  This arrangement provides a means to send the optical path directly through the middle of the motor.  The moving optic attached to the motors ‘C-mount’ is not cantilevered and so has no torques.  The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is directly compatible with the SCA814 Servo Controlled Amplifier.

  • 12 Millimeter clear aperture
  • 5 millimeters of linear motion
  • <50 nanometer positioning repeatability
  • Small Step Response of <1 millisecond
  • Threaded lens mount
  • 70 x 70 x 50 millimeters, 600 grams

 

 

By design, the LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator rotates approximately 0.1 degrees or 1.7 milliradians for every 1 millimeter of translation.  Through manufacturing tolerances only there can be a small amount of pitch and roll motion that is induced during the intended translation.  These small but real error sources are routinely characterized during the manufacturing process  using our AC400 Digital Autocollimator to control product uniformity.

All Motion Control STAC5 models include 100Mbit Ethernet communication. The Ethernet interface is used to configure the STAC5 and motor, and also supports the SCL and Q languages over standard Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.There are 3 control options available with the STAC5 stepper drives: S, Q and IP.

T• “S” drives can operate in pulse & direction, velocity, and streaming serial (SCL) control modes. To select the control mode, as well as to setup the motor and configure other drive parameters, use the ST Configurator™ software.

• “Q” drives can operate in all of the same control modes as an S drive, plus they have the ability to run stand-alone Q programs stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software, which provides multi-tasking, math functions, conditional processing, data register manipulation, and more features in a robust yet simple text-based programming language. Like S drives, Q drives must first be setup and configured using the ST Configurator™ software.

• “IP” drives come with built-in EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications. With EtherNet/IP users can control, configure and query the drive using an open, standards-based, industrial Ethernet connection at speeds up to 100 MBits/sec. The STAC5-IP drives run all of the same control modes as STAC5-Q drives, with the addition that all drive features can be accessed over EtherNet/IP, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming. STAC5-IP drives are setup and configured using ST Configurator™, and Q programs are created using Q Programmer™.

An encoder feedback option provides position verification, stall detection and/or stall prevention. Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed or acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization. high torque. These are three-phase brushless motors with hall signals for commutation and velocity loop feedback.

The STAC5 can be purchased with a wide range of high torque step motors, optimized for use with the drive.
