Oriental Motor’s BLE2 BLDC motors are rated to IP66
Motors in the BLE2 series are rated to IP66 and available in a range of power options from 30-300W. Additionally these units have a speed range of between 80-4000RPM, meaning one motor gearhead combination use is available in a variety of applications resulting in fewer parts being needed to be held for spares, Oriental Motor claims.
The motors are also equipped with alarm and torque monitoring functions for safe operation and control, the company state. The design also includes a torque control function for winding applications, which acts in a similar way to an electronic clutch. Electromechanical brake options are also available.
The speed or torque can be adjusted via an analogue output and/or the user can set 16 programmable speeds, depending on the required motion profile requirements.
Snap-on, IP-rated motor connectors, where the user can select lengths of cable, from 1-20m, allow an appropriate length to be specified.
The motors use an EURONORM X 10 CrNiS18 9 stainless steel shaft and there is a varied selection of gear types, including spur gear, hollow shaft gear and foot mounted options.
The BLE2 motor and driver can be programmed using the free-of-charge software MEXE02 suite. Set-up can be via a PC using the software or via a programmable logic controller. The software can be used for troubleshooting and to make maintenance, fault finding and setup easier.
