Single-Axis Drives Now Handle Larger-Torque Motors

The DBS (Digital Brushless Stand-Alone) line of single-axis drives from Vickers has been expanded to handle larger-torque motors used in injection molding machines. Drives now come with current ratings from 3 amps continuous, 9 amps peak all the way to 120 amps continuous, 240 amps peak. They can handle peak torques of more than 800 Nm at zero speed.

The new, higher-amp drives are said to double the maximum current ratings previously available on DBS drives.

Other features include dual processors, dual parameter set-ups and 24-hr stand-by logic as insurance against power loss. Programmable notch and low-pass filters are said to reduce elasticity resonance, for smoother handling of heavy loads.

These new drives are compatible with the manufacturer's largest FC Series and FAS T Series brushless servomotors. The FC Series direct-drive motor is designed to achieve low speed at high torque for precise, gentle load handling. The company also developed a lar-ger-frame, FAS T-4 servomotor (300 mm) to complement its new drives.

The manufacturer asks that you contact it for pricing information (use the Key Contact Directory).
