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.

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.
