MEDIUM-VOLTAGE AC DRIVE
MV1000 medium-voltage ac drives combine compact modular design, high efficiency and a good MTBF rate. Smart Harmonics technology reduces input total harmonic distortion to less than 2.5% without filters, which exceeds the requirements of IEEE519-1992. It also provides galvanic isolation between power input and output, and uses two 5-V step bridges per phase to generate a 17-level, line-to-line voltage output delivered to the motor.

 CG1501 RU Exlar PROVIDES HIGH THRUST 

Exlar FT45 Series electric rod-style linear actuators provide high thrust, speed and robustness in a compact form factor. They have a continuous force rating to 40,000 lbf, speeds to 60 in/sec and stroke lengths from 6 in. to 8 ft. The idler pulley design simplifies motor installation and belt tensioning/maintenance. A zerk fitting allows re-greasing of the nut assembly without having to disassemble the unit.

 CG1501 RU Rockwell DRIVES TARGET SIMPLE MACHINES

PowerFlex 523 ac drives are for simple, standalone machines. To make configuration easier, users can employ a standard USB connection for uploading and downloading drive-configuration files. They also can program the drive through its built-in human interface module, which shows data on the drive’s LCD. Special tools speed up configuration by providing groups of parameters for common applications, and by allowing users to save their settings to new parameter groups.

 CG1501 RU AutomationDirect MOUNTS IN ANY DIRECTION

IronHorse worm gearboxes have aluminum alloy housings, C-flange inputs and hardened, hollow-bore output shafts. They’re available in 30- to 75-mm box sizes, with gear ratios from 10:1 to 100:1. The units feature double-lipped, embedded-oil seals to prevent leakage, epoxy paint inside and outside the reducer to prevent corrosion, and double bearing sets on both shaft ends. The gearboxes are mountable in any direction except motor pointing up.

 CG1501 RU BEI BOOSTS BATTERY LIFE

High torque density, brushless dc motors provide operational efficiencies in excess of 90% using a proprietary low-magnetic circuit design. The frameless motors are composed of two pieces—a rotor and stator—which makes them easy to integrate into an existing assembly. Motors range up to 20 in. O.D. with torques greater than 50 Nm and operational speeds of more than 70 K rpm.

 CG1501 RU Kollmorgen SERVOMOTORS WITHSTAND CAUSTIC ENVIRONMENTS

AKMH motors are IP69K-rated synchronous servomotors that meet EHEDG, NSF, BISSC and 3A guidelines. They feature a single-cable solution that reduces the number of potential failure modes and minimizes installation time. A smooth surface design and use of corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel reduce the possibility of bacteria growth. It requires no additional protection, and can be sanitized without covering it or removing it from the machine.
