Covina, CA - QuickSilver Controls Inc. expands its line of servo motors with the QCI-A23L-3. This servo motor provides almost 33% higher power output capability than the similarly sized motor it replaces. This power increase comes with an efficiency improvement of approximately 15% over the speed range of the motor. Performance is especially improved at higher speeds. This OEM system (pictured) includes the 48 V SilverDust D2-IG-01 controller which is only 2.75-in. (70 mm) x 3.00-in. (76 mm).

The QCI-23L-3 has :
- 84 oz-in (0.59 Nm) continuous torque;
- 122 oz-in (0.86 Nm) peak torque;
- 80 Watts continuous mechanical power;
- 8,000 count/rev encoder; and
- 4,000 rpm, about twice the speed of most step motors.

With QCI's ability to handle inertial miss-matches of 100:1, this motor is ideal for driving large flywheel loads without additional gearing. The QCI-A23L-3 is an economical solution for motion control applications including semiconductor, packaging, medical and food processing. Software is key to higher efficiency and speed, a company representative told Control Engineering .
