For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide swiftness range, low heat and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and easy low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual operation on the driver or by an exterior change, or with an external 0~10 VDC. Velocity control systems typically use gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the mixture of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is attained through the constant application of aluminium die casting technology, which ensures a high degree of rigidity for the apparatus and motor housing concurrently.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for every order and customer. A advanced modular system permits a great diversity of types and a optimum degree of customization to customer requirements.
In both rotation directions, defined end positions are secured by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated solution does not only simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation shifting irrigation gearbox forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specifications for these motors are regular speed and stall-quickness torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, making more torque offered. Gearmotors are most often utilized in applications that require a whole lot of force to move heavy objects.
More often than not, most industrial gearmotors make use of 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/equipment combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify design and implementation by eliminating the stage of separately designing and integrating the motors with the gears, hence reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is usually that having the right combination of motor and gearing can prolong design life and allow for ideal power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate engine and gear reducer are connected together and lead to more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment leading to 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 power and improved life, all of which allows for improved overall performance in smaller packages. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as had a need to best fit the application, but in the end, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are a number of motors and gearbox types which can be combined; for example, a right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long term magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
