The new patented SDLM-019-070-01-01 direct-drive linear motor with integrated position and temperature sensors is the latest addition to the series of zero backlash, zero cogging, high acceleration, high speed, high resolution, long life motors from Moticont. Also known as an electric cylinder, this compact direct-drive linear motor is just 0.75 in. (19.1 mm) in diameter and 2.75 in. (69.9 mm) long. Protected inside the motor housing, the linear optical quadrature encoder is directly connected to the shaft for the greatest possible accuracy. The highest throughputs are achieved by the motor when operating at peak efficiency, monitoring the data from the internal temperature sensor.
The motor has a stroke length of 0.500 in. (12.7 mm) and a continuous force rating of 7.3 oz (2.0 N) and peak force of 23.0 oz (6.4 N). This non-commutated direct-drive servo motor features quiet long life, plain linear bearings, an integrated internal 1.25 micron resolution (0.000049 in.) quadrature optical encoder with differential outputs, and a non-rotating shaft. Applications include manufacturing (assembly and inspection equipment), sorting and packaging, semiconductor handling, medical procedure tables and instruments, antenna positioning, dampers, door & valve actuators, agricultural equipment, shaking, and adjustable office furniture.
Direct coupling of the load or stage to the low inertia non-rotating shaft eliminates backlash and allows for high acceleration/deceleration. Both ends of the actuator and shaft ends have threaded mounting holes for easy integration into new and existing applications.
The SDLM-019-070-01-01 direct-drive linear motor is also available with a matching servo controller.
