Jun. 23, 2015 – Allied Motion, a designer and manufacturer of motor and servo motion products, has released the Megaflux 170i, the company’s newest all-in-one brushless torque motor. The MFH170i series of 170-mm (6.7-in) diameter housed brushless torque motors is comprised of the 170 series brushless torque motor, a digital servo drive and a programmable high-resolution optical encoder — each integrated into a rugged machined aluminum housing with duplex bearings. According to the company, the series features a 63.5-mm (2.5-in) large-bore through shaft and is characterized by a very high torque-to-inertia ratio. There are three stack lengths in the series with peak torque ranging from 8.5 up to 16.9 Nm (75 up to 150 lb-in) and rated speed up to 1000 RPM. The standard winding voltage is 48 V. The motor is is designed as a rotary actuator ready for use in semiconductor equipment, automated test equipment, scanners, gimbal systems and similar applications where a rotary actuator with a large hollow shaft is of benefit, says the Allied Motion.
