Oriental Motor Announces Release of 120 W (1/6 HP) Brushless Motor & Driver with Optional Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear

Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear with Stainless Steel Shaft and IP66 rated

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular BMU Series with the introduction of our 120 Watt (1/6 HP) IP66 new connector type Brushless motor combined with a hollow shaft right angle hypoid JH type gear head, featuring a stainless steel shaft.


The right-angle hollow shaft hypoid JH gear achieves IP66 class protection through the use of a stainless steel shaft, oil ring, oil seal and new motor connector type. And since torque is not saturated with the new right-angle hollow shaft hypoid JH gear, the maximum output torque is available at each gear ratio.

The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 3,600 r/min (80 to 3,600 r/min). Speed ratio of 1:45 is achieved. This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.

Brushless DC motors compare the setting speed with the speed feedback signals from the motor at all times and adjust the motor's applied voltage. For this reason, even if the load changes, stable rotation is performed from low speed to high speed. Unlike three-phase inverter driven motors, the torque at low speed is not limited, so brushless DC motors are suited for applications that require constant torque from low speed to high speed. Using brushless DC motors can also contribute to long lasting, maintenance free solutions, downsizing and space saving and overall energy savings.

The IP66 rated Hypoid right-angle JH gear with stainless steel shaft is currently available for the 120 W (1/6 HP) brushless motor & driver packages, starting at $561 and available to ship in 9 business days. The JH gear will be available for 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) motor models in the future.

The Hypoid Right Angle JH Gear's key features are:
• Stainless steel shaft, IP66 rated
• Broader and stable speed range compared to three-phase inverter driven motors
• New motor connector type
• Available now for 120 W (1/6 HP) brushless motor & driver packages
• 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) motor models will be available in the future.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
