Allied Motion Releases New Housed Brushless Torque Motor

Advanced CM-2600 Series Torque Motor Offers Choice of Integrated Encoder

Amherst, New York. : Allied Motion announced the immediate availability of their new CM-2600 series of housed brushless torque motors.

CM-2600 series torque motors are comprised of a high-performance brushless direct current motor, one of three types of optical encoder, and a precision bearing system all enclosed in a robust aluminum housing with an IP40 rating.

The CM-2600 motor is characterized by a very high torque-to-inertia ratio; it delivers rated torque of 0.189 Nm (26.8 oz-in) at a rated speed of 1125 rpm for a rated 22.3 watts of continuous power. The motor has a 19 mm (0.748 in.) inside diameter hollow stainless steel thru shaft (12.7 mm for the absolute encoder version). Peak torque is 0.69 Nm (97 oz-in) and no-load speed is 1900 rpm.

Models are available with the choice of an ultra-low distortion sine-cosine, a digital incremental encoder with up to 1.25 million counts per revolution, or an absolute 17-bit Gray code encoder.

CM-2600 series torque motors are specifically designed for direct-drive, high-resolution, high-speed positioning applications. Typical applications include optical instruments, multi-axis gimbal systems, scanners, and other direct-drive applications where use of a gearbox is undesirable.
