ETEL Expands Linear Motor Line to Meet Needs of Direct Drive Machines

LMS-range-002-webAs engineers expand their range of machines to a point where a larger payload is required, an upgrade of their linear motors may be necessary.† So, to make their design process easier, ETEL has added extra ironcore linear motor lengths to each of their different widths.† These new lengths are compatible with existing 50, 70, and 100mm track widths on both the LMG and LMS line of ETEL motors.Because of this, ETEL customers can increase performance without changing the magnetic track being used.

Also, in order to allow machine designers to increase the power of their linear motors in a simplified manner, ETEL has built its line of LMG and LMS ironcore motors to be fully pin-to-pin compatible so that upgrading from one to the other requires minimal effort.

Both of ETELís LMG and LMS models share the same footprint, peak force, mounting interface, cable outputs, and magnetic track making an exchange between the two as simple as replacing the carriage.† Each motor utilizes ETELís unique design which minimizes the amount of force ripple that is typical of ironcore motors while maintaining the high-force density that other anti-cogging designs sacrifice.

All of ETELís ironcore linear motors only require a single magnetic track and are compliant up to 600V.† They are able to reach speeds of up to 10 m/s, and with the new expanded size range, are now able to reach a continuous force of up to 908N and a peak force of up to 3640N.
