motion control - electromate roboticsVaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Products — Mecademic is pleased to release firmware version 8.4 for its
Meca500 industrial robotic arm. Mecademic’s firmware releases are provided free of charge, along with complimentary technical support.

Features & benefits

Joint 6 multi-rotation with cartesian moves

Although rotating Joint 6 beyond the ±180° has always been possible with the Meca500 R3, it was limited to Joint-move-commands. With this new firmware, both point-to-point and linear commands can now be used outside of this limit. Apart from the benefit of no longer being limited in Cartesian space and requiring switching to Joint commands, new applications are now easier to implement directly with the Meca500.

Motion Control – Harmonic Drive FHA-C Mini 24V Servo Actuator with Dual Absolute Encoder and Panel Mount connectors!

Motion Control – Harmonic Drive  Servo Actuator

motion control harmonic drive servo actuator

 


motion control - electromateVaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — Introducing Dual Absolute encoder versions of the FHA-C mini actuator. Featuring BiSS-C Harmonic Drive fha-24v-002bi-directional communication for both encoders. The dual encoders are incorporated in essentially the same package size as the long-standing FHA-C mini single incremental encoder version. Without increasing the size, the dual absolute encoder offers single turn absolute position at the output, without the need for battery back-up. Panel mount connectors come standard, and customers can choose between 4 exit options.

The FHA-C mini Series is a family of extremely compact actuators that deliver high torque with exceptional accuracy and repeatability. The actuator combines a high precision Harmonic Drive® gear component with a pancake brushless servo motor. A single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) gear output encoder has been integrated along with a single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) motor input encoder providing a true absolute encoder that does not require a battery within 360° of rotation of the output. Typical multi-turn encoders monitoring the motor input shaft require a battery to store the current position when power is lost to the system; however, the dual absolute encoder overcomes this need. In other words, No Battery Required. When power is restored the actuator knows its position.

Features include:

  • Zero backlash
  • Incremental, Absolute or Dual Absolute Encoder
  • 24VDC winding
  • High-torque/weight and torque/volume ratio
  • Optional flex-rated cables with sealed connectors

motion control - electromate

 

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — COVID-19 has caused a significant shortage of ventilators for the most seriously ill patients. We are facing a global shortage of equipment and have precious little time to respond.

Electromate is a mechanical ventilator component supplier and works with a number of manufacturing partners that supply crucial components needed to build more ventilators.

These include:

  • HMI’s
  • Linear guides
  • Linear actuators
  • Screw assemblies
  • Compact gearboxes
  • High efficiency servo & stepper motors
  • Programmable motion controllers and drives

Our team of motion design experts are located all across Canada and are available right now to help you with any electro-mechanical ventilator design. If you are working on a ventilator involving rotary, linear, or any other motion, we will provide immediate help with electro-mechanical engineering and component sourcing. Contact us today.

We are already working with ventilator and respirator companies and encourage any other businesses working on COVID-19 solutions to reach out to us.

All inquiries regarding ventilator components or any other equipment to help battle COVID-19 are given utmost priority. We can help to optimize your design quickly and provide fast turnaround proposals as requested. Additionally, we are able to meet high production demands in a very short time by utlilizing ‘Medical Fast Track Programs’ -info.us@maxongroup.com from maxon, and other vendors.

Many of the products we sell to the medical technology sector have ISO 13485 certification. This certification confirms that these products adhere to the fundamental requirements of medical technology and that all processes and procedures are documented, thereby guaranteeing traceability.

In addition to helping with the design and acquisition of critical components used in ventilators and respirators, we also want to make you aware of initiatives that you may be able to utilize. Please read below to learn more about these programs and how you can assist with the COVID-19 cause.

CODE LIFE VENTILATOR CHALLANGE

The Montreal General Hospital Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), is launching a global innovation challenge, backed by a prize of $200,000 CAD. They are calling for teams to design a simple, low-cost, easy-to-manufacture and easy-to-maintain ventilator which could be deployed anywhere needed to save lives.

To learn more, please visit https://www.mghfoundation.com/en/news/code-life-ventilator-challenge/

 

 

MIT EMERGENCY VENTILATOR (E-VENT) PROJECT COPY

MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of Engineers and American clinicians to address the question:

Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?

Their process in approaching this question is to first identify the minimum requirements for a low-cost ventilator, based on the collective wisdom of many clinicians, design against these requirements, conduct immediate testing, report the results, iterate and facilitate discussion.
