Pittman Motors, a brand of AMETEK Precision Motion Control, introduces a new DC brush and brushless motor catalog, available on request. The new catalog serves as a “starting point” for helping mechatronics and motion control engineers design a DC motor solution perfectly suited for a particular application.The catalog also contains detailed sections on readily available options including gearboxes, encoders, and brakes. Pittman offers a wide variety of motor technologies. The new catalog is divided into the following sections: Brush Commutated DC Motors, Instrument Grade Brushless DC Motors, Automation Grade Brushless DC Motors, High Performance Slotless Brushless DC Motors, Slotless Brushless DC Motors and Brushless DC Motors with Integrated Control,
Pittman DC brush and brushless motors are available in a broad range of sizes, torque and power ratings. DC brush motor diameters range from 0.866-in (22 mm) to 3.25-in (83 mm) and torque output from 0.8 oz-in (0.005 Nm) to 225 oz-in (1.588 Nm) without a gearbox. Brushless DC motors are available in frame sizes ranging from 0.375-in (9.5mm) diameter up to 5.25-in (133 mm) and torque output from 0.3 oz-in (0.002 Nm) to 1824 oz-in (12.880 Nm). Both planetary and spur gearboxes are available for almost all DC motor designs, greatly increasing design flexibility. Gear ratios up to 4732.5:1 are possible. For closed-loop servo control, a wide variety of encoder types are also available, including models with differential line drivers and commutation signals for 4 pole and 8 pole brushless motors. Product applications for Pittman motors are diverse and span a wide variety of high tech industries including medical instruments, laboratory automation, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, laser and optics equipment, or just about any other application where precision motion is needed.
