New Panel Mount Brush Servo Drives for Centralized Motion Control Systems!

Motion Control AMC Panel Mount Brush Servo Drive from Servo2Go

Servo2Go-Logo

Greenville, DE -Motion Control Components – The AxCent™ (Axes for Centralized control schemes) product platform brings the proven and powerful performance expected of ADVANCED Motion Controls, with improvements to the design architecture that utilize years of experience in the industry and the latest advancements in modern servo system design.

As technology continues its shift from analog to digital, there is still strong demand for analog designs. The reason? Analog drives provide some attractive benefits:

  • Simplicity – It’s easy to train your people to set the correct switch and potentiometer settings.
  • Proven Track Record – AMC have been building analog drives since their inception. They have continuously improved their designs to mirror the advances in component technology.
  • Performance – When tuned to maximum performance, analog current loops can often times achieve higher bandwidth and faster response than digital current loops.

How can analog outperform digital? It all comes down to the components. In a digital system, A/D conversions and processing time can add delays ranging from 20 to 100 microseconds. This may not seem like a lot, but in the highest bandwidth systems delays of this magnitude create a sizeable phase lag.

The other driving factor is cost. Large volumes and mature designs make prices attractive for everyone (except our competitors)

Motion Control Application- Intra-aortic pump powered by miniature brushless DC motors provides heart failure patients an aid to help hearts rest and heal!

The Maxon EC 6 motor brushless DC motor is the second smallest drive in the maxon family.

Maxon motion control application - Inter-aortic heart Pump

 

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – Chronic heart failure patients draw hope from a new technology. A team of life science entrepreneurs in Houston, Texas has developed the first catheter-deployed circulatory assist device intended for long-term use. Procyrion, Inc.’s Aortix™ provides a minimally invasive treatment option for the more than two million chronic heart failure patients in the USA alone who are too sick for medication. This pre-clinical cardiologist tool dramatically reduces risks associated with circulatory support devices and enables treatment of younger, healthier patients before progressive damage occurs

Assisting the natural function of the heart, the intra-aortic pump has been thoughtfully designed as an alternative to large, cumbersome surgical devices currently providing full circulatory support. Unlike these devices, Aortix provides minimal procedural risk. Measuring approximately 6 mm in diameter and 6.5 cm long, a cardiologist can deliver Aortix via a catheter in the femoral artery to the descending thoracic aorta. Once the catheter sheath is retracted, the self-expanding nickel-titanium anchors deploy to affix the pump to the aortic wall.

Aortix accelerates a portion of the body’s native blood flow within the pump and pushes it through fluid entrainment ports directed downstream. The jets entrain native aortic flow, transferring energy to the cardiovascular system and increasing blood flow to vital organs such as the kidneys. Additionally, in a model of chronic heart failure, Aortix decreased energy consumption of the heart by 39 percent, allowing the heart to operate more efficiently, encouraging cardiac rehabilitation and recovery.

Maxon motion control application - Inter-aortic heart Pump

Procyrion has been working with maxon for almost two years to develop a motor for this unique and demanding application. The basis for the Aortix device is a maxon EC6 motor with some customization including the electrical lead, shaft length, and bearing assemblies – all designed to make the pump durable and biocompatible. maxon also designed a high efficiency motor core for this application, which extends battery life and produces less heat so it doesn’t adversely affect the circulating blood. In addition, maxon is working closely with Procyrion to implement a magnetic torque drive, so the motor could be mounted inside a hermetically sealed chamber. This configuration eliminates the possibility of blood entering the motor core. The magnetically coupled pump arrangement is a method sometimes used for giant pumps in the oil field, but because of maxon’s breadth of experience across multiple industries, the company was able to help the Procyrion team successfully transfer this technology to a miniature scale medical application.

Each Aortix device consists of a small, continuous flow pump mounted within a self-expanding anchoring system. The anchored pump attaches to a flexible power lead, which can be tunneled to a desired transdermal exit site or to a Transcutaneous Energy Transfer (TET) system for subcutaneous implantation without an indwelling power lead.

Maxon motion control application - Inter-aortic heart Pump

Presently, the device can operate for over eight hours on a single battery pack. The external battery pack and control unit have been designed to be “hot swappable”, meaning the battery can be changed without needing to stop the device. A variety of charging devices can be used.

“Aortix reduces the heart’s energy consumption by 39 percent.”

The Procyrion team has also built a TET charging system that enables the battery to be charged wirelessly. This design has the potential to significantly reduce the risk of infection, common with other implantable heart pumps.

Maxon motion control application - Inter-aortic heart Pump

Because traditional assist devices replace heart function rather than support it, device failure can be fatal. With Aortix, a partial support device which doesn’t obstruct native blood flow, failure is not life threatening. Should the pump fail, the device can easily be retrieved and replaced in another minimally invasive, catheter-based procedure.

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control – µZ’s are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls. Pronounced ‘Micro-Z’ these plug-in drives are designed for embedded applications in a wide range of industries including: Robotics, Lab Automation, Homeland Security/Military, Electric Mobility, Medical and Packaging.

µZ servo drives are designed to drive brushless and brushed DC motors at a high switching frequency. To increase system reliability and to reduce cabling costs, the drives are designed for direct integration into your PCB. Weighing in at less than 9 grams, µZ Drives output 10A peak and 5A continuous and operate with a bus voltage range of 10-36VDC.

Designed without the need for a heatsink, the µZ’s are true featherweights with a high power to weight ratio. The µZ’s are fully protected against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, over-heating, and short-circuits. Depending on the model, the drives interface with digital controllers that have analog ±10V or PWM/Direction commands. These servo drives require only a single unregulated isolated DC power supply, and are fully RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

Motion Control – Three-Phase Linear Drive Does Not Sacrifice Acceleration for Resolution!

Motion Control -Trust Automation TA330

Trust Automation Motion Control

San Luis Obispo, CA – The newest addition to the Trust Automation line of Linear Drives is the TA330 linear three-phase servo drive. It is easily configured for three-phase DC brushless servo motors using Hall Effect sensors, three-phase AC brushless motors using external sinusoidal commutation, single-phase DC brushed servo motors in bridged mode, and brushless linear motors. Its flexibility allows motion system designers to easily integrate the latest developments in sinusoidal motor control and its benefits of zero cogging, no torque ripple, and smooth motion, into applications such as, “very high resolution” inspection systems, metrology instruments, and medical applications.

Additionally, the very low electrical noise of the TA330 linear drive makes it ideal for integration in or near systems that have noise sensitive circuitry, such as transducers and sensors. Also the audible noise problems associated with PWM Drives are eliminated

This powerful 150 Volt, 900 W continuous (2700 W peak) linear drive can be configured to interface with any motion controller. Higher performance systems require a motion controller with the capability to generate the two +/- 10 VDC command signals needed for sinusoidal commutation. The third command signal is generated by the drive to maintain the highest level of precision. The TA330 Drive can be set up to operate in trapezoidal mode using Hall Effect sensors as feedback. The drive also features DTS control which allows the transconductance (torque control) to be changed on-the-fly. An additional benefit is that very high resolution control can be maintained without having to sacrifice power capability.

Additional features: The standard TA330 requires a 24 Volt input to power logic and bias supplies. This standard configuration allows the TA330 to operate with extremely low electrical noise. For applications which are not as sensitive to electrical noise, an optional internal logic and bias supply can be provided which eliminates the need for the external 24 VDC logic supply.

Compact, measuring just 14.9 in. (37.9 mm) X 7.7 (19.5 mm) X 4.7 ( 11.9 mm), it can be used with high inertia mismatched stages and low inductance motors. Integral thermally controlled variable speed forced air cooling, a housing designed to protect against operator injury, easily made connections using ribbon connectors, SMB coaxial connectors, and pluggable-terminal connectors, demonstrate Trust Automation’s commitment to operator safety, quiet environment, and ease of integration.

Trust Automation’s motion control products include: Stand-alone motion and machine controllers, SynqNet I/O and SynqNet Drives, Brushed and Brushless Rotary Motors, Interconnect Products and Automation Engineering consulting covering Mechanical, Electrical, Software and System aspects of machine design.
