Users have varied wishes when it comes to the right drive unit, including where drive power, transmission variants, reduction stages, closed-loop control systems, or connection technology are concerned. In order to provide even higher power outputs for automation applications, ebm‑papst has now expanded its existing ECI drive unit series to include size 80.
The new BLDC motors are based on the internal rotor principle with safety extra-low voltage (24 / 48 VDC), and have a diameter of 80 mm and a rated output of up to 750 watts. By combining different modules, they can be individually put together to create a complete drive system. Encased in a robust metal housing, degree of protection IP54 is achieved as standard.
Customized drive units available
The modular drive system includes planetary gears with different reduction ratios as well as encoder and brake modules. For example, if the application requires a holding brake based on the standby current principle, a module with a spring-loaded brake can supplement the drive unit. Hall sensors for detecting the rotor position are currently integrated for operation on a remote drive controller; other integrated electronics modules such as speed or position controllers with an optional bus interface are set to follow.
Simple to integrate into the application
Industrial plugs make it simple to integrate into the application. The radial angled plug with bayonet connector can be turned and engages automatically. For space-critical applications, an axial plug module can be provided on request – even a prepared cable connection is available.
Wide range of applications and fast sampling
The compact and customized drives are ideal for applications in the intralogistics sector, in conveyor, storage, and sorting systems, in medical technology for adjusting operating tables or patient lifts, as well as in battery-powered mobile vehicles (AGVs, AMRs). Thanks to defined preferred types, selected drive configurations are ready for dispatch within 48 hours, which means that sampling, for example, can be done very quickly.
