Haydon Kerk Pittman (Harleysville, PA) has announced the latest addition to its popular line of brushless DC motors: the EC042B IDEA Motor Series. The programmable IDEA Motor integrates a precision brushless servo motor with an IDEA Drive controller in a compact package to reduce design time, wiring needs and cabinet space, leading to lower overall system costs. The IDEA Motor is specifically designed for real-time embedded motion control and is ideally suited for autonomous precise execution of complex single-axis motion.
Save money and space by utilizing the IDEA Motor’s integrated package of motor, drive and feedback connections in a compact and programmable unit. A single motor/drive unit reduces motion system components by up to 75% per axis and simplifies machine troubleshooting. Further reductions can be achieved by wiring sensor inputs and control outputs directly to the IDEA Motor, rather than through a control cabinet. Save time using a pre-engineered, factory-configured and tested servo system.
