Brushless DC Servo Motors with Integrated EtherCAT Interface

Release Date: Thursday, July 25, 2013

CONTACT: Will Vinson

Elgin, IL - Dunkermotoren, now a unit of AMETEK Precision Motion Control, has extended its range of compact brushless DC servo motors with integrated intelligence and fieldbus connectivity with ten new models.

The extended family now offers EtherCAT interface on all of its BG45, BG65, BG65S and BG75 base models. Available motors range from 50W to 500W of power in 45mm to 75mm square frame sizes and feature CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE) compatibility. This feature combines the benefits of CANopen’s standardized DS402 motion profile with EtherCAT’s real-time high performance fieldbus.

The all-in-one motor plus drive design eliminates the need for external drives and numerous cables, improving dependability and overall performance, while dramatically reducing commissioning time and total system cost.

In addition, Dunkermotoren’s modular system offers high-quality planetary and worm gearboxes, integral or connected absolute encoders, and brake options to further advance the cost effectiveness of its motion solutions for original equipment manufacturers. Markets served by the new series include factory automation, semiconductor and renewable energy.

Dunkermotoren, an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 manufacturer, provides annually more than 3.5 million rotary and linear motion systems to its OEMs in the building automation, factory automation, transportation, healthcare, life sciences, semiconductor and energy industries.
