NEMA 17 Stepper Motor with Built-in Controllers and Motor Encoders

Zaber's new product, the X-NMS-E Series, simplifies motion control by incorporating a built-in controller and motor encoder. Capable of over 25,000 microsteps per revolution and up to 2800 rpm, this compact stepper motor includes a detachable home sensor and small magnet. An additional, optional away sensor is also available.

Like a

ll of Zaber's X-Series products, the X-NMS-E is able to daisy-chain with other Zaber products, and is able to share a single power supply with multiple X-Series products.

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.
