Dunkermotoren Expands Servomotor Offerings
December 18, 2017—
The dMove series is suitable for an enormous number of applications which do not require a high-resolution encoder.
With more than 100,000 sold units, the BG 65 (S) from Dunkermotoren is probably the most sold industrial DC servomotor with completely integrated motor electronics. With the BG 65/BG 66 dMove Dunkermotoren launches successor products now. They completely replace the present products BG 65 (S) SI and BG 65 (S) CI motors with low encoder resolution.
The outward appearance of this series with simple control electronics, formerly represented by “SI” motors, now called “dMove” differs just by a distinctly more powerful plug. Inside the motors, there is a completely new control electronics. Already in I/O version it allows to assign functions to the digital inputs - from simple speed controlling via analog input or fixed speed via digital inputs to combinations of current and speed controlling. Also, digital outputs can be assigned to functions. Not only the electronics, but also the real motor was optimized to reach higher output power.
Compared to the former “SI” motors, it is possible to integrate dMove CO versions as slaves in CANopen networks and to control them via profile CiA 402 or even simpler via Dunkermotoren quick start commands. Here, all functionalities incl. positioning, speed and current operation are available. For projects, Dunkermotoren offers versions of the motor which are parameterized and controlled via an RS 485 interface. The newly developed commissioning software “Drive Assistant 5” helps intuitively to set up the motors.
