This Month: Brushless Motors for Conveyors, BLH Series Motor Driver Cover, KIIS Series AC Motors Update and more

Brushless Motors for Conveyors

Conveyors are a type of material handling application that uses motors, pulleys, and belts to move material or products to different destinations in the factory or distribution center.  Traditionally, AC motors and VFDs are typically chosen for conveyors.  However, Oriental Motor's brushless motors and dedicated drivers can make things easier for applications requiring high efficiency, compact size, and speed regulation.  For food handling applications, please ask about IP67 dust/watertight protection and H1 food grade grease.

Speed Regulation Comparison - Brushless Motors and AC Motors

Built-in hall effect sensors close the loop between the motor and driver and ensures speed regulation at +/-0.2% or better even with fluctuating loads.
