MMP Inc Releases New 12V DC Gearmotor capable of 136 Lb In of torque aat 35 RPM, with IP54 Rating

03 Sept 2011: "IP-54" Sealed, Low Current, 12 Vdc Gearmotor Develops 136 Lb. In. Torque at 35 RPM Midwest Motion Products, Inc. of Watertown, Minnesota, is pleased to announce the release of a new DC Gear Motor, the Model No. MMP TM57-12V GP52-124. Accepting any 12 Volt DC source, including solar or battery power, this robust Gear Motor measures just 2.24" in Diameter, by 7.76" long, and has a keyed output shaft of 12mm diameter by 25mm long. Easy mounting is accomplished with 4 "face mount" M5 threaded holes, equally spaced on a 40mm Dia. B.C. The output of this reversible gearmotor is rated for 136 Lb. In. (15.3Nm) torque, at 35 RPM. Despite its compact size, and weight of approximately 4 pounds, it's an efficient design, requiring just 7.2 Amps at 12 Volts DC to generate its Full Load Torque. That translates into long life battery charge, very low noise operation, and lower costs for related drive electronics. Motor windings for 24V, 28V, 36V, 42V, 48V, 60V & 90 Volts are available. This unique design is rated at an "IP 54" protection level for operation in harsh environments. Variable Speed control can be accomplished with our fully compatible Speed Controls, Model MMP 25A-12V, or

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
