Compact brushless DC servo motor with integrated controller

For use in harsh environmental conditions, Nanotec developed the PD2-C-IP, a brushless DC servo motor with integrated controller and 42 mm flange size in protection class IP65.

The PD2-C-IP is available as a brushless DC motor, with an operating voltage of 12-48 V and a rated power of 105 W, and as a stepper motor with a nominal torque of up to 0.5 Nm. Due to the field-oriented control based on an integrated encoder, both motors are controlled in the same way and differ only in their working point.

Each motor is available in a USB and in a CANopen version. In the USB version, the motor can be parameterized and programmed for standalone operation. The USB port is covered by a waterproof cap, and the motor operates on the basis of the digital and analog input signals in combination with the stored program. In the CANopen version, the motor can be controlled via the CiA 402 fieldbus profile.

For pin-out the motor is equipped with M8 connectors (except USB).

Due to the minimal installation effort and low space and component requirements, the PD2-C-IP from Nanotec offers an extremely effective and economical drive solution when high precision and maximum benefit are required.

What to look for in a Distributor for WEG Antriebe Motors (Germany)

Certain high-tech industries call for precision and high-quality materials and products to ensure their production line is running effectively and efficiently. WEG Antriebe is a key player in producing 40 W to 1100 W motors for many high-tech industries, such as:

  • Plant/machine construction
  • Medical technology
  • Logistics
  • Industrial automation

WEG is a trusted name, a company that had humble beginnings. Originally founded for their production of starter motors for sewing machines, WEG slowly evolved into group drives and transmission belts until they specialised in drives with a 40 W to 1100 W power range.

However, due to the high-tech industries that rely on these motors, they need to ensure that they’re purchasing any replacement or first-time motors from a trusted distributor. How can you find a trusted distributor, though?

Look For a Company that Specialises in Your Field

Technical equipment should be greatly thought over before making a purchase. This is because, unlike buying a computer, technical equipment such as WEG Antriebe motors is the core of many drive solutions. For instance, by installing the incorrect drive in your car assembly line or robotics, this can cause havoc to your operating equipment and reduce productivity and efficiencies in the workplace.

If you do not have the knowledge yourself, then speaking to a company beforehand could save you a costly expense if anything were to go wrong. Plus, by working with companies like Alldrives & Controls, you’ll be networking with other companies until a solution is found; Alldrives & Controls welcome all challenges and have no qualms when reviewing your needs and requirements.

Working with professionals who have specialised in this field can help you find the right solution that is also cost-effective and right for your budget. Doing so can diminish any stress you may be feeling with regards to meeting a certain quota and not going over-budget.

Variety of Products & Authenticity

Look for a distributor who has a range of products so that you can see all that they have to offer. Although WEG produces motors between 40 W to 1100 W, there is only one UK distributor that deals with WEG Antriebe Germany and that is Alldrives & Controls.

What’s more, by purchasing products from a trusted distributor, the product you receive will be nothing less than authentic.

Ease of Contact

Alldrives & Controls allow you to network with companies within the drive and motion industry, so no matter what issue you’re having and what solution is needed, ( be it WEG Antriebe motors or linear actuators, etc) there is an unlimited pool of knowledge for you and your company to take advantage of. No challenge is too big or small, so if you need help with WEG Antriebe, Engel, Dayton or Nanotec, you can contact us over the phone or send us an email.
