New Range of Closed-Loop, Smart BLDC Motors

The PANdrive™ PD42-x-1670 product family features Trinamic’s first smart motor solution with brushless DC motors. The 42mm flange size BLDC motors have an integrated hall sensor for closed-loop FOC-based operation.

Trinamic's PD42-2-1670 PANdrive

Hamburg, 11 Feb. 2019 - TRINAMIC Motion Control GmbH & Co. KG announces their first family of smart BLDC motors, designed for 4000rpm nominal velocity and 6.25 ...18.5 Ncm rated holding torque. Together with the state-of-the-art feature set and CAN bus interface, the PD42-x-1670 is highly integrated and offers the best handling.

“Trinamic pioneered the market of smart motors more than 15 years ago with launching the first PANdrive. A stepper motor with integrated driver and bus interface. With the PD-1670 we launch our first BLDC Servo PANdrive with field oriented control,” explains Michael Randt. “The compact drive enables machine builders to implement rapid, precise and efficient positioning in no time.”

Suitable for lab automation, factory automation, manufacturing, robotics, and CNC applications, the BLDC PANdrive comes with two firmware options – TMCL™ and CANopen. Parameters can be permanently stored on the board itself and the PANdrive takes care of all time-critical operations such as ramp calculations itself, ensuring low communication traffic.

The full mechatronic solution includes state of the art field oriented motor control and powerful and efficient drivers. A Hall based rotary feedback system makes it reliable and durable. Equipped with industry standard protocols, it is easily integrated in PLC environments or in standalone applications. The drive is designed to work with a 24V power supply.

Available from March through Trinamic’s distribution channels, the PD42-x-1670 comes in three different lengths, each having 42mm flange size brushless motors.
