Brushless DC motors
Mclennan expands range of brushless DC motors with integrated drives.
- Compact, 24mm diameter high performance brushless motor with integrated drive now available in 5-wire version for added speed and direction control.
- Integrated drive range now includes 24, 32, 54 and 68mm diameter versions.
Mclennan has expanded its range of precision brushless DC motors that feature integrated drives with the introduction of a new five-wire version of the 24mm diameter Kinetimax 24 EB from Allied Motion Technologies. Previously available with two-wire brushless control in separate clockwise and counter-clockwise versions, the new motor includes speed adjustment and direction reversal inputs plus an 18 pulse per rev' speed monitoring output.
With a nominal length of just 26mm, the extremely compact motor design includes a low-cog outer rotor with an iron core for particularly smooth speed performance whilst robust precision bearings allow high radial shaft loads. Available in 6, 12 or 24Vdc versions with rated power output of up to 2.7W, the impressive motor specification includes a continuous torque output of up to 6mNm at a nominal speed of 4300rpm.
The new Kinetimax 24 EB complements a range of larger integrated drive equipped brushless motors from Allied Motion and available from Mclennan. The complete range now covers diameters of 24mm, 32mm, 54mm and 68 mm, in two- and five-wire control versions, that provide precision speed control for medical dispensing, laser scanning, high performance fans and pumps, and other exacting applications where fine motion control, long life and high reliability is essential.
The brushless and contact free construction of the Kinetimax 24 EB ensures an extremely long working life and the drive electronics include reverse polarity and over current protection. For lower speed and higher output torque, Mclennan can supply this motor with a choice of spur or planetary gearboxes to suit application requirements. Further options include customised shafts, mounting flanges, winding and connector configurations.
