Expansion of the modular drive system

Expansion of the modular drive system

When selecting a drive, users have a wide range of requirements, for example in terms of drive power, gearbox designs, reduction stages, control or connection technology. In order to be able to cover even higher outputs in automation, ebm-papst has expanded its existing ECI drive series to include size 80.

The new BLDC motors based on the internal rotor principle in safety extra-low voltage (24 / 48 VDC) with a diameter of 80 mm and a rated power of up to 750 watts can be individually combined with different modules to form a complete drive system. Housed in a robust metal housing, it meets the requirements of protection class IP54 as standard.

Drive can be individually configured to measure

The modular drive system includes planetary gearboxes with different reduction ratios as well as encoder and brake modules. For example, if the application requires a holding brake based on the closed-circuit current principle, a module with a spring-applied brake can be added to the drive unit. Hall sensors for rotor position detection are currently integrated for operation with a remote drive controller, and other electronic modules that can be integrated, such as speed or position controllers with optional bus interface, will follow.

Simple integration into the application

Industry-standard connectors facilitate integration into the application. The radial right-angle connector with bayonet lock can be rotated and engages automatically. An axial plug module is available on request for space-critical applications; an assembled cable connection is also possible.

Wide range of applications and quick sampling

The custom-made compact drives are particularly suitable for use in intralogistics, conveyor, storage and sorting systems, in medical technology for adjusting operating tables or patient lifts and in battery-powered mobile vehicles (AGV, AMR). Thanks to defined preferred types, selected drive configurations are ready for dispatch within 48 hours. Sampling, for example, can be realized in the shortest possible time.
