Nominal output torques range from 0.45 to 1.6Nm with highly dynamic peak torques up to 14Nm. Motors are rated at 3000r/min and can deliver rated torques down to zero speed.

Lenze explained that taking the drive out of the panel and integrating it with the motor allows the panel to be smaller. Only one component needs to be installed, thus, it said, saving time.

Further savings can be found by creating loop or spur connections from motor to motor, so reducing cable length, and there is no need for the cable to be shielded for EMC.

This new product line has been developed for applications in packaging, wood processing, warehousing and medical technology. So, for example, limit stops can be reset quickly and precisely.

Lenze said that further advantages come from the compact and smooth bodied design with IP54 enclosure. Control communications can be by PROFBUS or CAN. A comprehensive range of in-line and right angle gearboxes is available for speed reduction.
