Simplified Motion Series

Simplified Motion Series

Simplified Motion Series consists of different electromechanical components together with a simple and application-optimised combination of motor and servo drives, the so-called integrated drive. This solution does not require an external servo drive. The electric alternative for very simple movement and positioning tasks does not require the usual commissioning process that is needed for traditional electric drive systems, which can often be quite complex. It also offers special movement characteristics such as gently cushioned retracting into the end position, or simplified press-fitting and clamping functions.

Commissioning

This is quick and easy without the need for any software, computer or other accessories, because all parameters can be set manually directly on the drive. Simplified Motion Series is then connected directly to the controller, either via digital I/O (DIO) or IO-Link®, both of which are integrated as standard.

Highlights of the Simplified Motion Series

  • Simplified functionality for simple movements
  • A variety of movements with different mechanical systems
  • Integrated products eliminate the need for a control cabinet
  • Quick and easy commissioning without software
  • No special expertise required for commissioning
  • Digital I/O (DIO) or IO-Link® integrated as standard

The functions of the Simplified Motion Series

Simplified Motion Series basic profile

Basic profile for movement between two end positions – with speed control.

Simplified Motion Series enhanced motion profile

Expanded motion profile for simplified press-fitting and clamping functions – speed and force control.

Simplified Motion Series basic functions

Available basic functions can be set via digital I/O (DIO):

  • Speed and force
  • Reference end position and cushioning
  • End positions

Additional, extended functions are available via IO-Link®:

  • Remote setting of motion parameters
  • Copy and backup function for parameter transfer between drive and computer or from the computer to another identical drive
  • Reading functions of the process parameters

During commissioning, all relevant parameters can be set directly on the integrated drive. The parameters can be set easily and intuitively without extensive or complex operating instructions:

  • Speed for “out” and “in” movement
  • Force of the drive in the “out” position
  • Setting the reference end position
  • Setting the position "Start force-controlled movement"
  • Manual start by simulating DIO signals (similar to manual override)

Simple electrical connection via M12 plug design

  • Power (4-pin): power supply for the motor
  • Logic (8-pin): control signal, sensor signal and power for the integrated electronics

Product overview

Spindle axis and toothed belt axis ELGS

Spindle axis and toothed belt axis ELGS

Extremely compact and cost-effective spindle axis ELGS-BS with precise, resilient recirculating ball bearing guide for the slide and powerful ball screw drive.

  • Three sizes for a payload of up to 20 kg at a max. stroke of 800 mm

Extremely cost-effective and durable toothed belt axis ELGS-TB with precise, resilient recirculating ball bearing guide for the slide in a compact design – especially as a main axis in handling systems.

  • Two sizes for up to 1.3 m/s at a max. stroke of 2,000 mm

Common features:

  • Permanently attached stainless steel cover strip protects the internal guide and the spindle or toothed belt
  • Unique "one-size-down" assembly system for mounting with each other and with the mini slide EGSS
  • Optional: vacuum connection to minimise emissions of particulates from the axis to the system
  • The motor can be rotated 4 x 90° – this can be modified at any time
Mini slide EGSS

Mini slide EGSS

Cost-effective and resilient EGSS with smooth spindle operation for vertical Z-movements or individual, guided linear movements in every mounting position.

The internal linear guide absorbs transverse loads and provides very good resistance to torsion at high torques.

  • Three sizes with a max. stroke of 200 mm
  • The electric rotary drive ERMS can be mounted directly without the need for adapters
  • Optional: ducted compressed air compensation prevents particles or moisture from entering and particles leaking into the environment
  • Unique "one-size-down" assembly system in conjunction with the spindle and toothed belt axes ELGS-BS/-TB.
  • The motor can be rotated 4 x 90° – this can be modified at any time
Electric cylinder EPCS

Electric cylinder EPCS

The EPCS is suitable for single linear movements in every mounting position and its smoothly running ball screw drive allows precise and rapid positioning. As an extremely cost-effective complete solution, the electric cylinder is ideally suited for applications such as positioning or clamping, distribution, sorting or ejection, and in handling systems as a simple Z-axis.

  • Three sizes with a max. stroke of 500 mm
  • Simple and cost-effective position sensing with proximity sensor, flexible, reliable and quick to mount, can be retrofitted or repositioned at any time
  • Optional: ducted compressed air compensation prevents particles or moisture from entering and particles leaking into the environment
  • Unique "one-size-down" assembly system in conjunction with the spindle and toothed belt axes ELGS-BS/-TB
  • The motor can be rotated 4 x 90° – this can be modified at any time
Toothed belt axis ELGE

Toothed belt axis ELGE

The toothed belt axis offers very good running performance thanks to its recirculating ball bearing guide ELGE-TB. As an attractively priced complete solution with a cost-optimised design, it is an ideal and economical choice for very simple tasks with comparatively low requirements for mechanical load, dynamic response and precision, as well as for the environment.

  • High running performance of 5000 km
  • Optional end-position sensing with proximity sensors
  • The motor can be fitted on both sides, above or below, and rotated 4 x 90° – this can be modified at any time
Rotary drive ERMS

Rotary drive ERMS

As a cost-effective solution package, the rotary drive ERMS is ideal for simple swivel tasks as well as for increased mechanical loads. It has a rotary plate with sturdy, precise and backlash-free ball bearings so it can absorb transverse loads and torques.

  • Two sizes, each with a swivel angle of 90° and 180°
  • It offers a sealed hollow shaft as an integrated through-feed for cables or tubing
  • With the standardised mounting interface it can be connected directly to the electric mini slides EGSL, EGSC and EGSS.
