June 17, 2019 – Haydon Kerk Pittman announced the latest addition to its line of brushless DC motors: the EC042B IDEA Motor Series.
The programmable IDEA Motor integrates a brushless servo motor with an IDEADrive controller in a package designed to reduce design time, wiring needs, and cabinet space. The IDEA Motor is specifically designed for real-time embedded motion control and is suited for autonomous precise execution of single-axis motion.
A single motor/drive unit reduces motion system components by up to 75% per axis and works to simplify machine troubleshooting. Further reductions can be achieved by wiring sensor inputs and control outputs directly to the IDEA Motor, rather than through a control cabinet.
Since the connections between the drive and motor are made internally, connect power, optional I/O connections, and communications, and the IDEA Motor is ready to operate.
The EC042B IDEA Motor is available in three motor lengths, each with optional factory-configurable gearboxes. The range of reduction ratios and torque capabilities enable optimized performance of the EC042B IDEA Motor for motion applications, such as those required by lab automation, medical devices, communications equipment, semiconductor processing equipment, aerospace systems and many other applications.
