Celera Motion Expands Omni+ Direct Drive Motor Platform

DCS Celera Motion Expands Omni Direct Drive Motor Platform 1 400

June 13, 2022


Celera Motion, an award-winning business unit of Novanta Inc., recently announced it was expanding its innovative direct drive motor platform, the Omni+™ Series. Powerful and efficient, the Omni+ Series is designed for optimal system integration, with a range of axial lengths and winding options. Known for exceling in motion smoothness and torque density, the pre-engineered frameless motor kit series has now been expanded to include a new size: the Omni+ 100 mm.

“The Omni+ Series delivers a ‘magic combination’ of motion smoothness and high torque density while offering an ideal form factor,” said Mike Mainvielle, VP Product Management & Marketing of Celera Motion. “The motor kits are easy to integrate into a wide variety of applications, including surgical robots, satellite communications and collaborative robots. We’re very pleased to see so many companies embracing all that the Omni+ Series has to offer.”

The OMNI+ Series motors are designed to provide higher torque density and ultra-low cogging, resulting in smooth motion, lower power dissipation and decreased temperature rise. The technology provides high speeds and accelerations with superior mechanical stiffness, reducing settling times and increasing system performance and throughput.

Among the benefits of the Omni+ Series:

  • •An innovative electromagnetic design that delivers elite torque density and a compact form factor;
  • •A large ID-to-OD ratio for convenient routing of cables, optics and other system elements;
  • •Size compatibility with common strain wave gears and a wide range of motor drives, enabling easy integration;
  • •Minimal cogging for accurate and smooth motion;
  • •Custom windings and form factors available to meet application requirements.

The Omni+ Series fits simply into geared robotic joints, direct drive rotary stages or actuator applications for efficient utilization of space.

Applications include:

  • •Surgical robotics
  • •Exoskeletons and wearables
  • •Satellite communications
  • •UAV gimbals
  • •Collaborative robots

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
