EC042B 42mm IDEA Motor

Brushless Motor with Integrated Drive
The IDEA® Motor Series integrates a high-torque, precision servo motor and IDEA Drive as a single compact unit. The IDEA Motor enables distributed control without the use of a costly PLC or external motion controller.




EC042B is offered in 3 motor lengths with continuous torque up to 0.15 Nm.

CANopen:
  • DS-301 / DS-402 communication
  • Connect up to 127 drives on the same network
  • Integrated inputs, outputs and encoder

RS485:
  • GUI programming interface
  • Integrated trapezoidal and S-curve trajectory generator with movement profile plotter
  • Program execution
  • I/O-driven nested prioritized vectored interrupts
  • Polled I/O for autonomous real-time control
  • Connect up to 256 drives on the same network
  • Integrated inputs, outputs, and encoder

    NOTES:
    1. Maximum load represents gearbox capability only. Continuous load torque capability will vary with gear ratio, motor selection, and operating conditions.
    2. Shaft rotation is designated while looking at output shaft and motor operating in a clockwise direction. Gearboxes have bi-directional capability.
    3. All values specified at 25° ambient temperature and without heatsink. Peak values are theoretical and for reference only.
