ULT direct drive frameless motors get Faster!

Nov. 7, 2007
Applimotion’s ULT Series direct drive frameless low profile motors have proliferated applications from up in space to down on the ocean floor. New sizes are released weekly. The latest versions contain special magnet configurations for high speed applications. New additions include double insulation for high voltage. These motors remain true to the ULT ultra-thin origins with very low profile construction. New winding configurations allow higher speeds. Recent customer requests have forced a mind-shift in design approach enabling speeds up to 3000 rpm, traditionally outside the norm of direct drive motors. ULT motors operate from traditional three phase trapezoidal or sinusoidal motor controllers ranging from 12–700 volts DC, 110-480 volts AC. Direct drive low profile motors frameless motors enable customers to reduce overall system height. This new extension of motors positions ULT motors for scanners and thrusters as well as traditional direct drive rotary systems. They are also excellent for precision positioning with the use of a high resolution encoder or for continuous scannin
