ABB is offering standardized motor unit packages complete with cablings, serial measurement board (SMB) box and safety options. The portfolio of six different motor units between 2.5-50 Nm max dynamic torque offers vast possibilities for positioners, track motion rails, indexing conveyers, servo guns and other external axis applications.
All motor unit versions are already used in ABB’s range of high-quality positioners and robots, so integrators can rest assured that the motor units are tested and proven parts that are pre-engineered to work perfectly in combination with other ABB equipment. And because they are standard, the motor units are cost efficient and easily available as spare parts.
The motor unit offer includes CAD models that allow engineers to easily incorporate the motor units into their system designs. These are particularly suited to ABB’s own easy-to-use RobotStudio software, which can support every aspect of a system (e.g., motion control, application design, execution, and communication), as well as RobotWare and RobotWare Arc.
By using the RobotWare tool TuneMaster, an integrator building a customized positioner can tune both motor and gear unit parameters in order to achieve an improved motion performance in less time.
