Here we show you all the modules and options for the customized drive, using the ECI 63 as an example.
The modular system offers five transmission types. Three planetary gears in various designs: the Noiseless Plus (for example for medical technology), the particularly economical Performax Plus and the robust Optimax for high torques and with overload capability. If the motor force has to be deflected around a corner, angular gearboxes are used: EtaCrown with crown stage and the particularly compact EtaCrown Plus with additional planetary stage.
The right motor is at the heart of every drive. Three different motor types (ECI, VDC, BCI) with the corresponding output power, installation length and voltage are available. As a principle, all motors are supplied with separated extra-low voltage (<60 volts).
Operating a motor on an external controller with torque control requires a sensor that provides information on where the shaft is relative to the stator.
Various types of brakes are available to select from. The standard is a holding brake that operates using a spring force principle. However, an operating current brake can also be used.
An encoder is required as a sensor to perform positioning tasks in the application. Various standards are available here: 360 degree resolution, 360 degree resolution plus rotation count and customer-specific encoders, for example for Siemens controllers.
Does the drive need to be able to run at speed reliably, master precise positioning or be ready for IoT, predictive maintenance, and condition monitoring with integrated intelligence? The modular system offers the right K-electronics for each requirement with increasing complexity.
External modules & further functions
Electrical hookup: straight or angled connector types, PG screw connection
Functional safety: K4 and K5 electronics offer “Safe Torque Off ”
Degree of protection: the standard is IP54, but IP65 can also be selected
External modules: they can also be added behind the electronics (for example, a second transmission, a certified brake)
