Speed Control Application Examples


Conveyors

Common motor requirements for conveyors include:

  • Low Vibration
  • Stopping Precision
  • Ability to withstand harsh environments
  • Acceleration, deceleration capability
  • Position retention

 


Rotational Operation

For Rotational Operation applications, resolution and stopping precision are the most important points. Stepper Motors, Servo Motors and Hollow Rotary Actuators all provide precise movement and positioning.

If an overrun of less than 1 rotation (motor alone) is required, try an AC induction motor, AC reversible motor, with electromagnetic brake with an electronic brake pack..

If speed control is a primary requirement, AC speed control motors or brushless DC speed control motors are ideal.

If high frequency starting and stopping are required, clutch and brake motors may be the best fit. With a clutch and brake motor, the motor runs continuously and the load is started and stopped by switching the clutch and brake on and off, enabling continual operation of 100 cycles per minute.


Other Mechanisms

When high speed operation and high resolution are required, a stepper motor is the best solution. The closed loop AlphaSTEP step motor and driver system offers short, accurate moves and closed loop feedback. Our microstepping step motor and driver systems offer high precision and very low vibration. For speed stability, brushless DC motor speed control systems offer a wide range of solutions.

Easy-to-use AC speed control motor systems and brake packs can be combined with an AC compact motor to meet a wide variety of application requirements.
If high frequency starting and stopping are required, clutch and brake motors may be the best fit. With a clutch and brake motor, the motor runs continuously and the load is started and stopped by switching the clutch and brake on and off, enabling continual operation of 100 cycles per minute.
For low speed, high torque applications, we recommend the SMK series of low speed synchronous motors. If the application incorporates a rack & pinion mechanism, the LS series of linear heads connected to AC motors is recommended.
