For applications where adjustable speeds are necessary, typically an AC motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide quickness range, low warmth and maintenance-free operation. Stepper Motors offer high torque and even low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual operation on the driver or by an exterior change, or with an external 0~10 VDC. Speed control systems typically use gearheads to increase output torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending 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 combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is accomplished through the constant application of aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high degree of rigidity for the gear and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for each order and customer. A advanced modular system allows for an excellent diversity of types and a optimum amount of customization to consumer requirements.
In both rotation directions, defined end positions are guarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated option 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 ensures safe operation moving forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specifications for these motors are regular speed and stall-acceleration torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, which makes more torque obtainable. Gearmotors are most often used in applications that need a whole 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 whole lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify style and implementation by eliminating the stage of separately developing and integrating the motors with the gears, thus reducing engineering costs.
Another irrigation gearbox benefit of gearmotors is definitely that having the right combination of engine and gearing can prolong design life and invite for maximum power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate electric motor and gear reducer are connected together and lead to more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the usage of new specialty components, coatings and bearings, and in addition improved gear tooth styles that are optimized for noise reduction, increase in strength and improved life, which allows for improved functionality in smaller packages. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to best fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are numerous of motors and gearbox types that can be combined; for example, a right position wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox can be combined with permanent magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
