Selecting the right servo motor for your business is not an easy job. CM Industry Supply Automation – Servo Drive & Servo Motor recommend considering many aspects while determining the best model. For instance, if your business needs to control a tiny toy, you might have to consider a smaller servo motor system irrespective of a standard size.
Start by considering your application requirements, and check out the following important factors:
Answering these queries is a right beginning point to go deep with your requirements. When you determine the inertia, voltage and power profile you require, you can easily have an idea about the right type of motor to invest in. The right size will make sure not only higher performance output but also consistency.
Servo Motors are available in two types i.e. AC and DC. An AC motor can control higher current and is often utilized for industrial machinery. A DC motor is effective for smaller applications and not built for high-current surges. AC and DC servo motor produce constant rotation and include two ball bearings on the output shaft for reducing friction. The bearings even make it easier accessing to the rest-point tuning potentiometer.
When you consider acceleration, deceleration, and running torque along with the capability of Lenze servo motor regulating speed, position and torque, you will know which version of servo drive is best suitable for your situation. It’s important to determine peak, running and normal torque as well. Continuous torque makes rated torque and speed without system overheating, and intermittent decide how much torque the motor can offer in a short time frame. As compare to the rated number, the peak torque can be high since systems run well inside the peak torque range.
Remember, servo motor systems are of three types:
Continuous rotation servo: A continuous rotation servo turns in any direction for any time. The control signal is unintended as the direction and rotation speed. On the basis of command signal, it rotates at changing speeds, and you can utilize it as a drive motor on a portable robot.
Linear servo: A linear servo needs additional gears as compare to a positional servo and usually has a rack and pinion mechanism. It varies the output from a rounded motion to one that’s backward and forward. In large model airplanes linear servos are used by companies as actuators.
Positional rotation servo: A positional rotation servo having an output shaft rotating 180 degrees. The physical stops keep it away from turning more than the limits. The stops prevent the rotational sensor, and companies utilize the motors to radio-controlled toys, aircraft, and cars.
You need to consider about load, inertia and speed determining how far and quickly the weight must moveable. Calculating the rotation take place after you know about the weight and speed. However, there are many different online tools available to determine the size of KEB servo motor that will best suit your need.
Almost every business spends hefty amount and time while setting up their safety programs, procedures, and protections. However, these similar businesses will not vacillate to send an under-trained technician for working on product which could result in severe injury.
Although hazards vary from site to site and application to application, there are lots of things to consider when trying to carry out electrical maintenance. CM Industry Supply Automation – VFD, Servo Drive & Servo Motor Expert says “Medium voltage (MV) VFD poses high risks with those who are not familiar with their operation because this product looks to be less understood”. VFDs or any electrical devices can be highly dangerous if they are not installed by the properly trained professionals and not protected with suitable PPE for the job. Properly Locked out / Tagged out devices, which has been confirmed to be de-energized, will help ensuring a secure working environment for devices and your workers.
What are the essential service maintenance period for Medium Voltage VFDs?
Medium Voltage VFD maintenance programs must be established and executed considering some main parts such as.
Right sized VFD designed for the application
Usually, it is recommended to perform two levels of maintenance i.e.
Weekly, monthly or quarterly. It all depends on environment and conditions of operations. It can be executed by operator or electrician since there is no necessity to access the drive internals or live parts.
It’s essential to carry out cleaning and review of all filter media in AC ventilation system
Environment cleanliness is also essential for long term operations
Visual and audible inspections are also essential for any problematic issues.
Yearly complete system examination, cleaning and operation verification, often executed by trained and skilled / qualified professional only.
Perform full examination of all power connections, wiring and connectors to check out heat damage or loose connections signals.
Authenticate all control and power connections tightness and flexibility
All power parts cleaning to ensure right ventilation or cooling
Authenticate all power fuses for right connections and steadiness
Authenticate fan process is free and un blocked without any visual or audible problems
Carry out full examination of all control connections and PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards) for identifying any irregular discoloration or loose connections
Authenticate right connections of entire fiber optic cables and connectors
Authenticate all heat sinks dirt, debris, or foreign matter freeness
Authenticate programming, parameter settings and full operations
Carry out motor and cables megger testing to confirm insulation to ground integrity.
When will VFD need a CM Industry Supply Automation trained technician help?
Many devices need an authorized technician to install the VFD for validating a warranty, or extending the usual duration. It’s not rare to see manufacturer’s like Lenze Drive, Siemens Drive, Keb Drive, Yaskawa Drive and more extend their warranty when they know it was installed by trained and trusted technician. Many warranties also need preventative maintenance by the same experts at regular intervals. The technician expert cost can often pay off in the long run as it prevents upcoming issues from becoming costly headaches to keep them under warranty.
The S6 Servo Drive and F6 Variable Frequency Drive satisfies fail-safe functional safety requirements for machines employing PROFINET connection.
The F6 VFD and S6 Servo Drive from KEB America, Inc., a KEB Automation subsidiary and a provider of industrial automation solutions in North America, has received PROFIsafe certification.
KEB drives give functional safety over the bus to industrial machines needing PROFINET connectivity thanks to TÜV Rheinland's PROFIsafe certification.
KEB drives have functional safety as a key component.
Safe Torque Off (STO) and Safe Brake Control are included with the F6 VFD and S6 Servo Drive as standard features (SBC).
There is additional safety functionality available, including Failsafe over EtherCAT (FSoE), SS1, SS2, SOS, SLS, SLP, SLI, SDI, and SSM.
Sales manager at KEB America Jonathan Bullick remarked, "The approved PROFIsafe communication in our drives is a significant victory for machine makers.
"It minimises wiring, necessitates a smaller footprint, and offers cost savings during commissioning."
The F6 and S6 drive controllers are supported by KEB's COMBIVIS 6 commissioning and diagnostic software to provide excellent speed and position control.
With speeds up to 45,000 rpm, these drives power induction and AC permanent magnet servo motors.
They have dual-channel encoder cards, variable heatsinks, 0.75 kW to 450 kW power levels, and internal positioning for motion control applications.
