Crewkerne UK – February 2011: Rotalink's new range of Heavy Case (HC series) motors feature low inertia skewed rotors with minimal detent torque and are an ideal choice where smooth and accurate speed control needs to be combined with smooth acceleration at competitive cost.  The new HC series complement Rotalink's broad range of standard brushed DC motors with a design that includes precision ball bearings and a heavier case construction offering added durability, improved overload and enhanced heat dissipation. These characteristics combine for increased duty and longer than average motor life and suit applications in areas such as medical device and laboratory equipment, or high reliability automation machinery for industrial production and test.

The new HC motors form an integral part of Rotalink's strategy that brings together a range of brushed and brushless DC and AC motor technologies with its own innovative designs for gearbox, motor feedback and motion controls to realise highly competitive miniature power transmission solutions of up to 28 Nm output torque for rotary motion and  linear motion solutions to more than 50 N force.

Rotalink's range includes planetary and spur gearboxes in a wide choice of output torque ratings that feature standard or ultra polymer gears on sintered or ball bearings. For extremely high torque  output  in very compact designs, Rotalink manufacture a unique range of ovoid style gearboxes that combine spur and planetary gear stages using ultra-polymer materials technology that will provide up to 28 Nm peak torque in a gearbox case that measures just 95 mm x 60 mm x 31.5 mm deep.

Rotalink also manufacture incremental and absolute encoder feedback devices with pioneering space saving designs that are easily adapted into applications for speed control and position feedback together with motion controls such as the innovative Red Drive - a powerful DC motor drive, available in brushed and brushless DC control version, offering an easy-to use drag-and-drop flow chart programming language for motion control and combined TTL logic I/O.

The new Heavy Case motors are fully covered in Rotalink's new and revised full range catalogue along with new rare earth and brushless DC motor ranges and several new gearbox lines.
