The engineers at Industrial Indexing Systems have added a selection of encoder-based motors to their company's line of DeltaPro single-axis positioning systems. These are being offered in addition to the resolver-based motors already available. Available in nine ranges from 400W to 11 kW, the new A Series motors are rated for 1500 rpm and use a 2048 line precision encoder. A Series motors have a higher rotor inertia than standard Delta motors, and combined with the encoder, make them ideal for direct drive servo applications. All DeltaPro single-axis systems are compact, high performance positioning systems that integrate everything required for a complete motion control solution, including a closed-loop positioner, drive, and power supply; motor; operator interface; and cables.
