Following the successful launch of the second generation AKM2G servo motors, KOLLMORGEN is now expanding its new range for applications in the low voltage range. The specialist in servo drive technology and Motion Control is responding to increased demand for AKM2G motors for AGVsrobotics, and medical technology. Powerful compact motors for supply voltages of 24, 48, 72 and 96 V DC are increasingly in demand here.

KOLLMORGEN is initially launching the AKM2G motors for low voltage applications in frame size 3. The company is relying on optical encoders, Hiperface DSL, EnDat as well as the tried-and-tested robust Resolver as feedback systems. In terms of connection technology, the options available currently include M23 connections in the SpeedTec version and hybrid Htec. Further options are due to follow as part of the market launch.

In terms of drive behavior, the AKM2G servo motors deliver a permanent torque between 0.6 and 9 Nm for low voltages with peak torques up to 27 Nm. This means that the new motors achieve the best values for compact mobile applications from the material flow. A look at logistics shows how widespread the autonomous transportation systems known as AGVs are today. High power density as well as economical use of electrical energy are essential features of the second generation of AKM motors from KOLLMORGEN. These features have been transferred 1:1 to the new low voltage series. This opens up new possibilities for mechanical engineering in the design of small robots, autonomous transportation systems, and automated medical technology. KOLLMORGEN also continues to rely on customizing as a factor in its success. The new range is easy to configure for individual tasks and also provides additional scope for non-standard customer-specific options.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
