Intellidrives Enhances Rotary Servo Tables
January 13, 2017—
The motor and rotary encoders are directly coupled to eliminate coupling backlash.
Intellidrives offers water-tight and dust-proof rotary servo tables (DDR). These direct drive rotary servo tables feature IP rated ingress protection. The IP65 rating assures against ingress of dust and small water jets. IP66 rating assures, in addition to IP65, against ingress of powerful water jets. IP67 rating assures, in addition to IP66, against water penetration under heavy water jets and when partially submerged.
Direct drive rotary tables provide superior angular positioning and are designed to eliminate backlash, friction and wear problems associated with worm, gear and belt drives. Low maintenance and high throughput characteristics of the DDR stages yields the lowest total cost of ownership.
These rotary tables utilizes direct drive three phase brushless motor technology. There are no brushes to replace and no geartrains or belts to maintain.
Accurate Positioning performance is assured with the precision Absolute encoder that provides arc-sec positioning resolution. The motor and rotary encoders are directly coupled to eliminate coupling backlash.
The Absolute encoder keeps track of its position at all times, and provides it as soon as power is applied. This feature is particularly useful in applications where the equipment has power turned off between uses. No need to move to home sensor or index pulse to establish a reference position.
