EC brushless motor delivers the right balance of speed and torque

EC brushless motor delivers the right balance of speed and torque
The new Ultra EC range of Brushless motors from Portescap has been expanded with the 22ECP35 two pole brushless DC motor. As part of the Ultra EC platform of brushless slotless mini motion solutions, these cost-optimised motors offer 30% more continuous torque and 100% more power over similar comparative motors without compromising the smooth operation and long life required from a brushless DC motor.

Compact external rotor motor designed for series applications

Compact external rotor motor designed for series applications
With the DF32, Nanotec has presented a flat and very compact external rotor motor. The eight-pole brushless DC motor with a diameter of 32mm and a height of 18mm achieves a rated power of 7.4W. In addition to the standard winding for 24V with a rated speed of 2760rpm, customer-specific windings are also possible for series applications. For this motor, the rotor position feedback is provided by hall sensors.

The big question with electric motors: rewind or replace?

The big question with electric motors: rewind or replace?
Electric motor failure is a very real and can be a common occurrence, even though we do all we can to prevent it. So when it does strike, it can be hard to know what to do. As business down-time and losses mount, it’s very easy to make a panicked decision over whether to rewind and repair or replace your motor.

Energy efficiency maintained during motor service and repair

Energy efficiency maintained during motor service and repair
Conducted at the University of Nottingham, an extensive joint research project has found that energy efficient motors remained within plus or minus 0.5% of their original efficiency after being repaired by a good service centre. This is within the specification tolerances of the label and efficiency banding. These tests were backed by a number of leading international industrial organisations and Government Departments in the UK and USA. Tim Marks of the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) reviews the projects and their findings.

Networked drive electronics and IoT features at SPS Drives

Networked drive electronics and IoT features at SPS Drives
Showcasing innovations in drive electronics at the 2017 SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will be found in hall 3 stand 218. The new NORDAC LINK series of field distribution systems, designed for networked intralogistics facilities with many drive axes, provides an especially good user experience.

Cost-efficient logistics drives in three preferred configurations

Cost-efficient logistics drives in three preferred configurations
Within plants that contain a lot of drive units the total cost of ownership can be reduced by up to 70% through intelligent management of variants. Bearing this is mind, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has established three preferred sizes for efficient variable-frequency drives in materials handling and conveyor applications. These cover the typical functional and performance requirements in postal hubs, intralogistics applications, and baggage handling systems.

Motor and drive ranges launched at SPS Drives

Motor and drive ranges launched at SPS Drives
Part of the Nidec group, Leroy-Somer is preparing for the launch of new ranges at SPS IPC Drives which is taking place from 28th to 30th November in Nuremberg. Leroy-Somer will be demonstrating Commander ID300, a new integrated drive for the control of its IMfinity induction motors from 0.25-7.5kW. This all-in-one drive solution has been designed to meet the strategic challenges of increasingly complex and demanding production environments, induced by the transition to Industry 4.0.

Three-phase brushless motor drivers function in confined spaces

Three-phase brushless motor drivers function in confined spaces
Two new three-phase brushless motor drivers have been launched by Toshiba Electronics Europe. TC78B015FTG is for 12V power supply applications and TC78B015AFTG supports applications using 24V. The new ICs support high-speed rotation of small fan motors and are suited to home appliance and industrial equipment applications. Cooling fans, such as those found in servers, combine minimum size with a high rotation speed thereby ensuring maximum cooling capability.
