Maxon A-max 16 brushed DC motor – This drive with a diameter of 16 millimeters (precious metal brushes, 2 Watt) was developed for use with an eccentric weight and a specified bearing.

Fall River, MA — The majority of traffic accidents are caused by human error. In the future, computer-controlled cars will significantly reduce the number of such accidents. Driver assist systems, such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), brake assist systems, or lane departure warning systems (LDW), can save lives. Lane departure warning systems warn the driver if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane. The LDW determines the vehicle’s position in the lane with the use of various optical sensor systems and computers. If the car is in danger of drifting out of the lane, the system activates an electric motor in the steering wheel that causes the wheel to vibrate, warning the driver.

A luxury car manufacturer has engaged maxon to supply the motors for this application. The base DC brushed motor is maxon’s A-max 16 (precious metal brushes, 2 W), modified for the application with an eccentric weight and a specified bearing. In order to prevent the other vehicle systems from being affected by the electromagnetic fields of the motor, it has been equipped with special EMI suppression for automotive applications. The small drive system must meet specific requirements: It needs to be low-noise, dynamic, feature high power density, and fit in a narrow space – requirements that maxon’s small A-max 16 easily masters..

Updates deliver twice the control performance of prior versions, while enabling system-wide third party product configuration to be handled by the integrator

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control –Kollmorgen introduces Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ (KAS) software version 2.8 and AKD servo drive platform firmware version 1.12. The additions include a new higher performance version of the AKD PDMM, enhancements to the coordinated motion programming blocks and additions to the EtherCAT configuration tool. This enables OEM’s who utilize Kollmorgen’s automation and drive systems to deliver differentiated machines with greater system design flexibility, performance capability, and ease-of-use.

The flagship enhancement to this version of Kollmorgen Automation Suite and AKD PDMM is a higher power version of the integrated Multiaxis controller/drive dubbed ‘M1.’ The M1 doubles the control performance of the standard PDMM and allows for more axes at faster update rates. It can control 30+ axes of motion, where the standard PDMM is equipped to control up to 16-axes. Alternatively, when compared with the standard PDMM in an application with the same amount of axes, this means most applications will be able to run twice as fast based on system load testing, which is particularly helpful in synchronized and coordinated systems that rely on microsecond timing,” says Reid Hunt, Drives and Control Products Manager.

For material forming applications this means more accurate path motion, which is critical for accurate cutting and bending. For packaging, food, and converting applications, it means more accurate web tracking, sealing, gluing, cutting, and slitting. All of this is critical for today’s more complex consumer packaging. With coordinated motion blocks and enhanced capabilities, such as three-axis coordinated linear motion as standard, KAS is an ideal solution for more applications than ever before. A template project complete with preconfigured motion blocks, automation code and GUI code helps users get started with coordinated motion. This eliminates the need to control the timing and position of individual axes. It also enables the programmer to command motion in free space and just specify the end position and path.

“It is common to pair a PC running some front-end application code with an automation controller to handle the synchronization of trajectories and machine automation,” explains Hunt. “UDP is a simple communication protocol that allows for the fast transit of data between devices. Multiple KAS controllers can also be linked together using these communications protocols for a modular machine approach.”
