"Animatics' new SM23165MT-IP SmartMotor with mil-style connectors offers IP65 ratings with the convenience of a smaller frame size for compact applications," said a company spokesperson. "The second in a series of harsh-environment-rated products from Animatics, the SM23165MT-IP combines the quality and capabilities of the SmartMotor integrated servo in combination with an IP65 rating, adding value to a product series of complete motion control solutions. The sturdy design and thicker motor casing provides protection, durability and resists cable stresses, meaning a longer motor life and less down time. Now any factory process using washdown techniques or wet processing environments can benefit from the easily programmable SmartMotor and its unique features such as Combitronic communication protocol and stand alone linear interpolation.
"For the IP65 rated SmartMotor, not only is it completely dust-tight but also protected from ingress of liquid that may occur from any angle, rendering no harmful effects on the electrical enclosure. The SM23165MT-IP can withstand splashing water, oil or food debris as well as rainy conditions. Conditions with high levels of humidity and condensation are no longer a problem for the SmartMotor motion control system. This makes the SM23165MT-IP with the IP65 rating suitable for food and beverage manufacturing and packaging, rugged outdoor conditions, as well as any wet processing environment.
"The option to upgrade to an IP67 option is also available for applications requiring complete servo motor submersion up to one meter deep in water or other non-hazardous liquids for up to 30 minutes."
Additional SM23165MT-IP features include: 10 points of 24V I/O, DeviceNet or CANopen, brake option available, RS-485 and programmable limits.
New application opportunities include wafer processing, bottle capping, seal testing, ultrasonic testing, marine/aerospace, pipe runners, mobile field equipment, coating/spraying, lens grinding, contact lens manufacturing, high density metal machining, polishing operations, agricultural processing machines, electroplating machines, circuit board processing, lap grinding machines, powder coating, resin slurry processing, glue dispensing and rubber processing.
