MOTION CONTROL: maxon’s RE 50’s “heart” is, as with all mechanically commutated maxon motor drives, the ironless rotor, which results in detent-free running and minimized mass inertia. The combination of a two-pole Neodymium permanent magnet with the patented maxon winding technology results in high torque and remarkable acceleration.
The drive measures Ø50 x 108 mm and is available with four different windings. It reaches a nominal torque of up to 0.38 Nm, a nominal speed of 2800 to 5700 rpm and an efficiency of more than 90 percent. Low nominal voltage (24.70V dc) and high power density make the RE 50 an excellent choice for the use in battery-powered applications, such as electric vehicles, transport and logistics equipment, mobile systems, robots, etc.
Pre-loaded bearings contribute to low-vibration and quieter running and an extensive life span. The well proven maxon modular system offers matching planetary gearheads, encoders and control systems. Look for more information soon on a dust and splash water protected RE 50 version, which will be available with an optional brake.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
