At the Ligna in Hanover, the Zimmer Group presents a completely new and highly innovative category of automation components. The Modular Transport System is a modular, fully networked and scalable system of transport units for a wide range of requirements in automation and linked production.

Maximum productivity and flexibility

The individual modules move with very high dynamics and precision on a defined travel path which realizes the high-precision mechanical movement through a linear guide in combination with a rack and pinion drive and the transmission of bus signals or electrical energy via a concealed sliding contact transmission. Depending on the requirement profile, one or more shuttles can be autarkically or electronically coupled, synchronously on any length of travel with speeds of 0-2m/s and a positioning accuracy of 0.05mm. The maximum payload of the individual modules is 100kg. The continuous circulation and the modules on the track are achieved with a change of direction of travel through high-performance converters.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
