12 And 24 Volt Speed Controls From Bodine Electric Company Drive Brushless DC Gearmotors And Motors Up To 3/8 HP

The new type ABL-3906C low-voltage brushless DC stock controls provide variable speed control for low-voltage BLDC (ECM) gearmotors and motors.

The new type ABL-3906C low-voltage brushless DC stock controls provide variable speed control for low-voltage BLDC (ECM) gearmotors and motors. The controls operate from a DC power supply or from a battery (12 VDC or 24 VDC, depending on the control model). They are ideal for portable or remote applications where connection to an AC line is not possible, such as mobile medical devices, solar powered water circulators, thermal solar power generators, chemical injection pumps at oil wells, and automatic gate openers.


Motor speed can be controlled by an external potentiometer, the onboard speed trim potentiometer, or a 0-5 VDC analog input signal. A Smart Reverse™ circuit prevents plug reversing if the user accidentally or intentionally changes the direction signal without bringing the motor to a stop first. The controls have continuous output rating of up to 20 Amps, and are capable of peak output current of up to 30 Amps. Trim pots allow the user to adjust max speed, torque (current) limit, and acceleration time. The 24VDC models provide system-matched performance with stock Bodine 24V gearmotors and motors. Bodine also provides 12V gearmotors as OEM custom solutions.

-Model 3909 drives Bodine 24V brushless DC motors and gearmotors up to 3/8HP.
-Model 3908 drives custom 12V BLDC motors and gearmotors. Call for details.
-Compact and robust surface mount technology design.
-High performance, system matched drive solutions.
-Competitively priced; expert application support.
-cURus marked and RoHS compliant.
-Manufactured and designed in the USA.

Application Note: 12V brushless DC gearmotors and motors are available as custom or built-to-order models. Standard 24 VDC brushless DC gearmotors and motors can be operated from a 12V control, but performance will not be to nameplate specifications.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
