Spring Time special: A Stepper motor with superior EMC performance
AllDrives & Control Press release
Staffordshire, May 14, 2015 – Alldrives & Controls, who represent Nanotec Germany in the UK and Ireland, has a spring in it step with the new SC3518 series from Nanotec.
EMC problems, like the dark days of winter, are now in the past, as Nanotec launches stepper motors which not only feature a very high torque, but also have excellent EMC properties.
The SC3518 series are 2-phase hybrid stepper motors with frame size NEMA 14 (35 mm) and a 1.8° step angle, and depending on the motor length, the holding torque is between 0.18 and 0.32 Nm.
Like all motors of the SC series (NEMA 8, 17 and 24 sizes) from Nanotec, the new SC3518 stepper motor is connected via an integral connector enabling easy cable loom integration, saving costs, in customer applications.
Together; with the shielded cable, which is standard equipment, the two outer pins of the connector are attached to the motor housing, creating a shield to housing connection with excellent EMC performance. Radiated EMC Interference from the motor lines, which can cause problems in existing sensors, is effectively suppressed.
The SC3518 motors are available with an integrated optical encoder NOE1 with up to 2000 increments/rotation for closed-loop control.
Or as a standard Stepper motor for open loop control, which can be converted to a sensor-less closed loop control using the innovative “C5” Drive controllers, also from Nanotec.
On account of their high torque yet small size, motors of the SC3518 series are ideal for use in laboratory automation or service robotics.
