Kollmorgen has launched the VLM servomotor series to fill the gap between stepper and high-performance servo motors. The new series synchronous servo motors offer OEMs, machine builders and end-users, a good proposition in the torque range of 0.5 to 4.5 Nm continuous and 16 Nm peak, with speeds of up to 6000 rpm. They are a useful solution for many applications where stepper or asynchronous motors are pushed to their limits but the expense and unused dynamics of high performance servo motors is not desirable. The motors are available with standard frame sizes of 60 mm and 90-mm or NEMA 23 and 34 in each of the six most popular motor sizes and with a choice of twelve standard windings. The possibilities for shaft and mounting facilitate seamless integration into virtually any system. Feedback options include Digital Resolver (SFD), resolver, encoder and Hall sensors. The motors achieve continuous torque up to 4.5 Nm and peak torque to 16 Nm and can be used in power systems with 230 VAC. And of course, the new motors meet the ROHS Directives for CE and UL certification.
