ZSH series stepper motors built for harsh environments

The specialist ZSH-series stepper motors from Phytron are now available from its new distribution partner Mclennan, and are built for use in especially harsh industrial environments. As part of a wide range that spans proven use in environments from deep space and ultra-high vacuum to standard industrial, the ZSH in particular is designed as a cost effective solution for truly harsh industrial use where standard build stepper motors would have severe limitations.

Such application areas would include automated machinery where IP68 environmental protection is a prerequisite, or inside climatic chambers, or perhaps submerged in liquids such as fuel oils or detergents.

A specific area of use for this motor is adjusting rotor blades in aviation. The IP68 option includes a robust housing and high-strength cable gland waterproof immersion up to 10m depth.

An extended temperature range option covers dynamic use from -30 to 80°C with a short term capability to 100°C.

The range is available in NEMA compatible frame diameters of 57, 87 and 107mm. The 2-phase 200 step/rev hybrid stepper motor design is microstep compatible with smooth motion and holding torque from 0.45-17Nm.

Realising that many applications require more drive-train components parts than just a motor, a wide range of options with harsh-environment specifications include integral permanent magnet brakes, various feedback encoders and backlash-free planetary gear units with reduction ratios from 3:1 to 512:1.

Further custom options include double shafts, terminal box or free wire electrical connection.
