New! Motion Control Components & Technology Added 11-25-2014
NEW COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI), introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
Direct Drive Linear Motors with Integrated Encoders Offer High Resolution, Speed, No Backlash, and Zero Cogging!
Van Nuys, CA -- New, patent-pending, SDLM-051 direct drive linear motors with built-in en-coder from MotiCont eliminate backlash and provide users with high acceleration, high speed, high resolution, and long life. Available in several off-the-shelf models, these direct drive lin-ear motors feature resolutions of 5.2 µm (0.000206 in.), 1.25 µm (0.000049 in), and sub mi-cron resolution. Compact, only 2 in. (50.8 mm) in diameter and 3.75 in (95.3 mm) long, and with the linear optical quadrature encoder inside directly connected to the shaft for the great-est possible accuracy, these motors can be easily integrated into new and existing applica-tions using threaded features on the front and rear faces of the motor, as well as each end of the shaft.
More Versions, More Power - The New DCX Motors and GPX Gearboxes!
Fall River, MA -- Now even stronger, more efficient and with yet more combination options: There are new additions to the maxon family of X drive products. Several long versions of brushed DC motors, with higher torques and more power, are being added to the product range, together with matching planetary gearheads. Each of the 3-stage versions can now be combined with the next smaller motor. This saves space, weight and costs.

MICROMO Introduces the New FAULHABER 3890 CR DC Motor! A new benchmark for power and performance!
Clearwater, Florida - Motion Control - MICROMO is pleased to announce the latest addition to the FAULHABER CR DC Motor series. Its graphite commutation, powerful neodymium magnet and particularly high copper content in the FAULHABER rotor winding provide the compact 3890 CR with an enormous amount of power. For drives in applications such as autonomous robot systems and electro-mechanical orthotic systems and exoskeletons, high dynamics and torque in the smallest possible space are central requirements. In addition to the one-of-a-kind power density (rated torque per volume), the high efficiency of the 3890…CR series is also a decisive factor. Thanks to the further development of the commutation system, the motor also achieves high service life values even with extremely heavy loads. The coreless rotor also ensures cogging-free, precise synchronization with very low energy consumption.
