Brush-bound into the IIoT world

Two worlds meet and go hand in hand in the future. On the one hand, we are talking about a brushed DC motor (GR series) from Dunkermotoren. This is a drive motor that has been very popular and universally applicable for decades, precisely because of its simplicity and reliability, and which is also completely functional without semiconductors. On the other hand, there is talk of high-end control electronics. The BGE 5510 dPro from Dunkermotoren sets very high digital standards in terms of control technology, programmability and networking possibilities.

At first glance, it seems to be a contradiction to combine a seemingly outdated technology with a high-end controller instead of modern brushless DC motors (BG series). If the typical BG requirements for dynamics or service life are not critical in applications, there is nothing to be said against using GR motors. On the contrary. The simplicity is reflected in the costs; moreover, GR motors with incremental encoders show a very balanced behaviour and only very low cogging torques. In terms of position, speed and current control, GR motors do not have to hide behind BG motors.

Of course, the GR motors from Dunkermotoren in the power range from 4 to 240 W can be combined with all components of the extensive modular system, for example with gears and brakes. The BGE 5510 dPro also leaves nothing to be desired. It can be easily configured via the Drive Assistant 5 commissioning software and the connected GR motor can be perfectly matched to the respective application. From stand-alone operation via CANopen communication to communication via Profinet, EtherCAT and Ethernet/IP are possible with the BGE 5510 dPro. Dunkermotoren thus achieves the feat of making even the simplest motors visible and transparent in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
