Inmoco is extending its range of high-performance servo motors for hygienic processing environments with the introduction of the energy-efficient S-Series stainless steel servo motors from Cleveland Motion Controls, Inc (CMC). These motors are designed specifically for use in sterile or high pressure wash-down environments as found in food processing, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.
The design of the new motors follows extensive research by CMC; the company has worked closely with key customers and engineers in hygienic industries to develop and introduce the 300-series stainless steel housings and other external components to ensure maximum protection (full IP 67 compliance with associated shaft seals for food-grade applications) and corrosion resistance for sterile and wash-down applications.
Despite their high specification and the use of CMC's MDM high-energy brushless servo technology, the S-Series motors are described as being competitively priced. Manufactured in standard metric frame sizes, the motors are designed to deliver the industry's highest available torque density, with stall torques 35-40 per cent higher than for conventional designs. This is achieved by means of a design that integrates cut-core, segmented stator lamination technology in a high-efficiency heat transfer capsule, with high slot-fill windings and a high-flux neodymium magnet array.
In addition to their performance features, the S-Series servo motors are easy to install: they feature strain-relieved cables with stripped ends that are ready to accept the customer's choice of connectors. Feedback options are also straightforward, with optional encoder line counts up to 5000ppr available for all configurations, and also optional resolver feedback on all configurations.
Thermostats on the motor windings are a standard feature, as is a brake, across the entire product line. In addition, as an added benefit, customised mounting and shaft options are available for all supported configurations. In terms of compliance, the S-Series units offer users and OEMs the benefit of complete conformance to UL/CUL and CE standards.
In support of the S-Series range, easy-to-access and easy-to-use cross-reference tables, outline drawings and torque-speed curves can be viewed online at www.cmccontrols.com. Alternatively, follow the link for more information about Inmoco's range of brushless servo motors.
