Rock Hill, S.C . -Direct mounting to a 4.5-in. shaft or the choice of an output shaft is available for a new series of direct-drive brushless motors offering high-torque. Direct mounting (hollow shaft) provides the stiffest possible connection. The first motor in the series has standard enclosed configuration, measuring 17-in. diameter and only 9-in. long. Continuous torque rating is 264 lb-ft rms (358 Nm). However, higher continuous torque can be supplied via special cooling provisions. These motors can be designed for 160-700 V dc bus. A sinusoidal encoder, providing the equivalent of over 1-million ppr effective resolution, is standard. www.powertecmotors.com . Powertec Industrial Motors Inc.
