For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC electric motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide quickness range, low high temperature and maintenance-free operation. Stepper Motors offer high torque and soft low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual operation on the driver or by an exterior switch, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Swiftness control systems typically utilize gearheads to increase output torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid based on torque needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to depending on space constraints or style of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. This is achieved through the consistent application of aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high amount of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing at the same time.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for every order and customer. A advanced modular system allows for a great diversity of types and a maximum degree of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are shielded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated answer does not only simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the end positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off accuracy of the limit switches guarantees safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low velocity. The speed specifications for these motors are regular speed and stall-velocity torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, which makes more torque offered. Gearmotors are most often utilized in applications that require a lot of force to move heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors use ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors can also be utilized as gearmotors … a whole lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have a number of advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify style and implementation by eliminating the step of separately designing and integrating the motors with the gears, thus reducing engineering costs.
Another advantage of gearmotors can be that getting the right combination of motor and gearing can prolong design life and allow for optimum power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate motor and gear reducer are connected together and result in more engineering time and cost along with the potential for irrigation gearbox misalignment causing bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty components, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth designs that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in strength and improved life, all of which allows for improved efficiency in smaller deals. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application form, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types that can be mixed; for example, a right position wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox can be combined with long term magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
