IP65 Rating Extends the Servotronix stepIM Integrated Stepper Motor Family into New Environments
Building on the success of Servotronix’s recent introduction of its stepIM family of integrated stepper motors with IP20 rating, the company has introduced new models with IP65 rating. The new models satisfy customer requests for service in harsh environment while reducing cost and complexity.
Enhancements Sharing the electrical and speed/torque performance with the IP20 models, the new models deliver a number of enhancements to achieve IP65: • An oil seal has been added to the motor shaft • Rubber seals have been added to the motor stacks and heat sin...
Sharing the electrical and speed/torque performance with the IP20 models, the new models deliver a number of enhancements to achieve IP65:
• An oil seal has been added to the motor shaft
• Rubber seals have been added to the motor stacks and heat sink
• The LED indicator has been insulated
• The three connectors for bus power, CAN communication and for IOs have been modified respectively to M12/5, M8/5 and M8/8 connectors that provide IP65 sealed connectivity
The stepIM IP65 provides three inputs, one output, and one analog input, while the stepIM IP20 models have four inputs, two outputs and one analog input.
The stepIM IP65 is currently available in three NEMA 23 lengths. Operating voltages range from 14 to 48 VDC, with torque ranging from 1 to 3.25 Nm depending on motor length. The stepIM controls the axis via CANopen fieldbus according to CiA 402 protocol, and supports six standard CANopen modes of operation: profile position, profile velocity, torque profile, homing, and cyclic synchronous position.
The stepIM family significantly reduces cost, space and machine complexity making it perfectly suited for decentralized machine architectures. The integration of motor, control and power electronics minimizes the effort and expense associated with machine installation due to reduced wiring and cable routing. In operation, machine complexity is reduced as less electrical cabinet space and fewer components are required.
