FlexiDrive MSBA actuator is a complete multi-turn absolute positioning system.
It consists of a brush-type geared dc motor, a magnetic position sensing unit,
a regulator and a CANopen feedback interface. The housing measures 42 mm in diameter
and can be customized with flexible gear combinations, extended functions and
The FlexiDrive MSBA actuator retains position
data even when being moved or turned off. Incorporated dynamic overload
protection via overspeed limiting protects against overload as the device's
internal thermal regulation shuts the motor down at temperatures in excess of
110C. System safety and performance is enhanced by current limiting and the intelligent
The actuator is available with a gear ratio
between 3.7:1 and 307.54:1 and a maximum resolution of 15 degrees. The device
requires no separate controller and includes digital hardware inputs and
outputs for easy programming by the user.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Independent science safety company Underwriters Laboratories is providing new guidance for manufacturers about how to follow the latest IEC standards for implementing safety features in programmable logic controllers.
Automakers are adding greater digital capabilities to their design and engineering activities to promote collaboration among staff and suppliers, input consumer feedback, shorten product development cycles, and meet evolving end-use needs.
