Lenze-AC Tech
508/278-9100  servo motor SERVO MOTORS
AM3500 series servo motors have a high moment of inertia suited for machine tool axis with stringent synchronization requirements. They can eliminate a gear box in high-inertia applications such as rotary tables. Motors are available with flange sizes 3 to 6, torques between 1.9 and 15 Nm and rated speeds of 3,000–6,000 rpm. Resolvers or absolute encoders (single or multi-turn) are available as a feedback system. The standard protection class is IP64 with IP65/67 optional. Motors are CE-, UL- and CSA-listed.
Beckhoff Automation
952/890-0000 dc motors OPTIMIZED COIL
Athlonix high-power-density brush dc motors are designed to deliver speed-to-torque performance in a compact lighter-weight package with output power to 9 W and an energy-efficient coreless design and optimized self-supporting coil and magnetic circuit. In 12, 16 and 22 mm frame sizes and maximum continuous torque to 16.5 mNm, the motors are compatible with incremental encoders and gearheads of various sizes and ratios and are RoHS-compliant.
610/235-5499  AC motor AC MOTOR SPEED CONTROLS
Pacesetter Models 2994 and 2998, three-phase AC motor speed controls drive 230 Vac, 50/60 Hz, inverter-duty, gearmotors and motors ranging 1/8–1 hp. Both operate from single-phase 115 or 208/230 Vac. Model 2994 is NEMA4X/IP 65-rated and Model 2998 is NEMA1/IP 40-rated for basic protection in packaging and conveyor systems.
Bodine Electric
773/478-3515  Stepper ROHS-COMPLIANT STEPPER
RBK RoHS-compliant two-phase bipolar stepping motor and drive package with DC input divides the basic 1.8 in. step angle up to 128 microsteps (0.018° step angle) in 16 selectable resolutions using built-in switches located in the driver. The third-harmonic-suppression function reduces step motor torque vibrations by connecting or shaping the driver current waveforms, especially at low motor shaft speeds.
Oriental Motor USA
800/418-7903  Stepper drive + motor DRIVE + MOTOR
STM space-saving stepper drive and motor unit features advanced current control, anti-resonance technology, torque ripple smooth and microstep emulation for use in a variety of automation applications in motion control. It comes standard with protection against over and under voltage, over-temperature, motor shorts and motor open phase. The unit is RoHS compliant and CE certified. STM is available in lengths of 92.4 mm with an output torque of up to 125 oz-in. or 114.4 mm with an outp ut torque of up to 245 oz-in. They provide three digital inputs, one digital output and one analog output. Users can choose from an RS232/485 communication interface and an optional encoder that is integrated to the motor body without increasing the size of the unit. The encoder provides direct and stall prevention functionality.
Applied Motion Products
800/525-1609  micro motor MINIATURE DC DRIVE SYSTEM
Series 122 SR DC micro motor has an external motor-diameter of 12 mm and length of 24 mm. A combination of the System Faulhaber ironless rotor and Neodymium rare earth magnets achieve a stall torque of 5.43 mNm and speeds to 13,800 rpm. The precious metal commutation allows operation at low starting voltages due to inherent low contact resistance.
MicroMo Electronics
727/572-0131 servo motor RADIATION-READY
RH series radiation-hardened brushless servo motors for rapid acceleration and deceleration in radiation-intensive applications are available in four standard frame sizes, or custom sizes, with continuous output torque ranging 15-400 in.-lb or momentary peak torque of 30-1,000 in.-lb and with rotor inertia of 0.17-36.7 oz-in.2 and continuous output power of 700-7,800 W.
Empire Magnetics
707/584-2801 motor

The SM3416DT-PLS2 includes high-speed position capture, advanced torque over-shoot braking and eight-pole, segmented stator design, which provides more than 900 W peak power over 1 hp. It is part of the SmartMotor OEM series, a complete, programmable, motion control system that incorporates a servo motor, amplifier, encoder and motion controller into the same integral frame. The SM3416DT-PLS2 delivers as much as 480 oz-in. of peak torque while maintaining over 200 oz-in. of continuous torque with a maximum speed capability of more than 5,000 rpm.

frequency drive TO THE M-MAX

The M-Max series of sensorless vector adjustable frequency drives includes both single- and three-phase devices. The standard drive includes a digital display and operating and programming keys on a keypad. The display provides drive monitoring, as well as adjustment and diagnostic information. The keys are used for digital adjustment and programming of the drive, as well as for operator control. Separate terminal blocks for control and power wiring are provided for customer connections. The M-Max drives feature RS-485/Modbus, proportional-integral (PI) controller and several fieldbus options.
