Motion Control – Customer Driven AC Servo Design

The mid-level, general-purpose 1S Series Servos incorporate valuable input from our customers to optimize use from design to commissioning.

Lower Costs and Total Cost of Ownership
The 1S Series eliminates up to 20% of hidden servo system costs to the customer by no longer requiring separate external parts such as servodrive controller cable, terminal block for I/O, safety cable, brake relay and absolute encoder battery and cable.  Regardless of power rating, all 1S power drives have a uniform height to simplify design and improve control cabinet air circulation. We streamlined I/O connection, replacing an external terminal and cable with a pluggable connector with push-in terminals that allows wiring to be prepared separately. In the process, we increased the number and mix of supported I/O.  The end user benefits from lower maintenance costs.

Advances for High Accuracy Machines
The 1S servomotors use a gear-less/battery-less, multi-turn 23-bit absolute encoder, 16-bit multi-turn to provide accurate position input. Advanced tuning functions help shorten settling time, allowing faster production speeds and greater throughput.
Expanded Built-in Safety Capability

Machine safety for rotating hazards takes a prominent position in equipment design since the recent changes in injury liability. To help OEMs simplify safety system design and standardize on one series without stocking many separate drives, the 1S Series servodrives offer both networked and hardwired safe torque off built in. Configuration of FailSafe over EtherCAT (FSoE) only requires connecting NX Series safety control units to 1S Series servos  via open network “EtherCAT”. No wiring is required for the emergency stop of each axis for servo.
First Wave of 1S Servos

The first wave satisfies 100 W to 3 kW applications. Future releases will address power requirements of higher and lower power ratings.

Motion Control – FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy Compliant Linear Motion Components

Motion Control - Linear Motion - Fluidline Linear Bearings

 

Motion Control – Linear Motion – LM76 FluidLine Motion Control Linear/Rotary bearings are FDA/USDA & 3A Dairy Complaint. They are also caustic wash down inert. FluidLine bearings one piece construction has benefits over traditional Teflon Composite lined aluminum bearings: if you have a wear situation, Teflon Composite Bearings have a .035″ Teflon Composite Liner. Once you wear through the liner, you are into the aluminum shell. FluidLine bearings will simply wear more and more until they are too sloppy and can replaced at your convenience. They are also less expensive in volume because there are fewer manufacturing operations. We can easily design and produce special ID’s, OD’s, Lengths and features such as flanges.

Motion Control – Miniature DC Servo Motor Controller, The ESCON 50/5 OEM Module!

Motion Control – Maxon Precision Motor’s newly released DC servo motor controller, the ESCON 50/5 OEM module. This mini OEM plug in module is a 4 quadrant Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) servo motor controller that can efficiently control permanent magnet brushed DC motors (PMDC motors) and Brushless DC servo motors (BLDC motors) containing hall effect sensors, with power levels up to 250 watts.

Maxon motion control ESCON 50-5 Module

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control – The OEM module features exceptional motor control properties and also contains very fast digital current control bandwidth capabilities enabling peak DC motor current (and therefore torque) control. Speed control of DC motors is devoid from drift whilst remaining dynamic. The DC motor speed can be controlled from 0 rpm up to 150,000 rpm. A completely configurable broad range of functions can be set to operate form the onboard analogue and digital inputs.

The motion control DC motor speed can be set for open or closed loop with preset current/torque levels or the motor torque and direction can be set with analogue inputs. The inputs can be scaled and midpoints independently set with the “Easy to use Servo Controllers” PC Graphical User Interface (GUI) allowing fast implementation integrated into difficult motor control applications. Detailed design guides are supplied allowing easy integration onto the main equipment PCB. There is also an evaluation board for easy initial test and measurement.

This DC servo motor controller can also be used with an external potentiometer or the integrated on board potentiometer. For applications with existing PWM signals available this can also be used as a set value input. Full 4 quadrant control can be achieved with brushless motors using only hall sensors. A DC tacho or encoder can be optionally used with the DC motor for tighter feedback loops and digital inputs can be switched for activation in a particular motor direction of rotation.

Protection features are inbuilt on the motor controller against overcurrent, overtemp, undervoltage and overvoltage. Transients and short-circuits on the motor are also covered. The maximum allowable motor currents can be configured easily on the USB connection with the PC GUI.

When combined together, the maxon DCX, GPX and ENX form a high-precision, robust drive system ideal for any application from aerospace to medical to robotics. In fact anywhere that requires a compact, powerful, quiet and strong drive system. With just a few clicks of the mouse, it is possible to configure a powerful DCX drive with reliable and a fast delivery. In addition, detailed product data may be viewed immediately online and 3D CAD data for the configuration is available for downloading.

The small sized electronic motor controller has a 98% efficiency and can be used on common 12V, 24V and 48V DC systems making it suitable for process control, robotic and manufacturing equipment applications.

Comprehensive documentation and software are included with every motion control component delivery, and are also available for you to download from our website at www.maxonmotor.com.

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — The DCX motors have precious metal or graphite brushes and may be equipped with standard preloaded ball bearings or sintered bearings and cover a large voltage range with six different ironless windings. With the new housing, almost all mechanical configurations are possible. The mounting flange can be fully configured. This includes the thread diameter, position and number of mounting holes as well as the dimensions of the centering collar. For use in small spaces, the DCX motor is also available in a short configuration without a flange. The length and diameter of the output shaft can be selected, with or without flat. The DCX motors can also be ordered with cables or with terminals. Cables are available in various lengths and with connectors.

New gearheads and encoders have also been developed for the DCX motors. The GPX22 gearhead consists of individually configurable gear stages and is now even quieter and even more robust than equivalent sized gearheads. With a laser weld, the gearhead interface is joined seamlessly to the DCX motor. The GPX gearheads also come with a configurable flange. The output shaft is available in different lengths, with or without a flat, and even with cross holes or a key.

Matching maxon ENX encoders feature a strong industrialized design and high signal quality. The ENX QUAD encoder is a single-pulse, 2-channel encoder. It is ideal for speed and direction detection. With a built in ESD protection network, reverse polarity protection, cable strain relief and the robust design, it is an economic choice for simple closed-loop tasks. The ENX EASY is a 3-channel encoder with line driver. A resolution of up to 1024 pulses per revolution can be selected. Thanks to the line driver and high resolution, it is an excellent choice for high-precision position and speed control applications. The cables of the ENX encoder are configurable in seven lengths, from 50 mm to max. 1000 mm.

When combined together, the maxon DCX, GPX and ENX form a high-precision, robust drive system ideal for any application from aerospace to medical to robotics. In fact anywhere that requires a compact, powerful, quiet and strong drive system. With just a few clicks of the mouse, it is possible to configure a powerful DCX drive with reliable and a fast delivery. In addition, detailed product data may be viewed immediately online and 3D CAD data for the configuration is available for downloading.
