MOTION CONTROL | SMART CONVEYOR BELT
Magnetic Innovations develops and builds smart conveyor belt motors with optimal motion control. These direct drive motors are a new generation of single-side mounted direct drive 3-phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous motors (PMSM). These motors are also called intelligent infeed motors and are used for conveyor belts that benefit from a single sided mounting interface or so called cantilever design.
Our smart conveyor belt motors are specifically designed for high dynamic applications in the packaging equipment and semiconductor market. They are ideal, because you can directly control the motor without the need for magnetic alignment and homing due to their integrated absolute single turn encoders. Moreover, they are brushless 3-phase PMSMs with their rotor on the outside. Together with the cantilever design, this enables easy cleaning and maintenance without the time consuming dismantling of the front side support frame, and easy belt changes.
Key features of the smart conveyor belt motor:
• Unique formfactor to enable compact belt systems
• Fast response to load and/or position variations
• High position accuracy
• Direct-Drive technology
• No gears or external gearbox (no oil or grease)
• Zero motor maintenance
• Zero backlash
• Easy conveyor belt swap due to single side mount
• Horizontal, vertical and diagonal mounting capability
• Single turn absolute encoder (no homing or magnetic realignment)
• Available encoder protocols:
· Absolute Sine/Cosine 1Vpp
· Absolute BiSS/SSi (RS422)
· ncremental ABZ (RS422)
• Easily removable and adaptable HUB geometry for custom crowning or lagging
• UL approval pending
• Compatible with industry standard 3-phase Motor drives.
