New! Motion Control Components & Technology Added 3-3-2015
NEW COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI), introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size. It is based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
Spring Applied Brakes for Servo & Stepper Motors Available from Servo2Go!
Greenville, DE -Motion Control Components - Available from SERVO2GO! -- SAB brakes from Inertia Dynamics are designed to be engaged and disengaged in a static condition at zero RPM. They are best used as a parking brake to hold a load in position. These brakes can be mounted to a flange or motor using thru-holes or tapped holes in the field cup. A conduit box is optional.
The FAULHABER Series 3274 BP4 Brushless DC Motor from MICROMO!
A Flyweight with Heavyweight Performance
Clearwater, Florida - Motion Control - In the fight for high performance with minimum weight, FAULHABER’s 3274 BP4 is the new champion in the ring. The brushless DC servo motor, measuring 32 mm in diameter and 74 mm in length. It has massive continuous torque of 165 mNm. Surprisingly, it weighs in at just under 320 g. Thas is half the weight of conventional motors with comparable power.
H2W Technologies Manufactures Brushless Linear Motors!
Santa Clarita, CA -Linear Motion Control - With the recent acquisition of the Baldor linear motion product line, H2W Technologies has begun manufacturing brushless linear motors in its Santa Clarita, CA facility. H2W Technologies has extensive experience in designing and building custom linear motion control systems. Now, with the tooling necessary to produce both ironless and iron-core brushless linear motors, H2W has the capability of offering a complete line of standard and custom brushless linear motors.
Integration Made Easy Using Maxon's EPOS Positioning Controllers!
Fall River, MA - Motion Control - The maxon motor EPOS2 motion controllers for DC brushed and brushless motors are enhanced by even more possible fields of applications. Deployment of computer-based drive control rather than traditionally used PLC systems are becoming more and more prevalent in practice. To stay ahead of this trend, maxon has updated the EPOS2 libraries. This is to support CANopen interfaces from Kvaser and NI-XNET, in Addition, to our existing motion control solutions (NI, IXXAT, Vector). Additionally, new opportunities unfold for computer platforms with serial communication via USB or RS232 under Windows or Linux. The existing libraries for Intel/AMD (Windows 32/64-Bit, Linux 32-Bit) are further extended with a Linux 64-Bit version. Also support of 32-Bit ARMv6/v7 solutions allows the broad scale use of trend platforms, such as Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone. True to the principle “Easy-to-use POsitioning System”, simple and fast incorporation into a wide range of solutions with extended, no cost, libraries is supported.
