For applications where adjustable speeds are necessary, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are a sophisticated option due to their wide acceleration range, low high temperature and maintenance-free operation. Stepper Motors offer high torque and clean low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual operation on the driver or by an exterior switch, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Velocity control systems typically use gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range between spur, worm or helical / hypoid based on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are high performance and durable and show 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. This is attained through the consistent application of aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high degree of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for each order and customer. A sophisticated modular system allows for a great diversity of types and a maximum degree of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are guarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated answer does not just simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches guarantees safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A irrigation gearbox gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specs for these motors are normal speed and stall-velocity torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, which makes more torque obtainable. Gearmotors ‘re normally used in applications that require a whole lot of force to go heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors may also be used as gearmotors … a whole lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have a number of advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify style and implementation through the elimination of the stage of separately creating and integrating the motors with the gears, therefore reducing engineering costs.
Another advantage of gearmotors can be that getting the right combination of engine and gearing can prolong design life and invite for the best possible power management and use.
Such problems are normal when a separate engine 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 eventually reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty components, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth designs that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in strength and improved life, all of which allows for improved efficiency in smaller packages. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be combined 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 that can be mixed; for example, a right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with permanent magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
