New FHA Integrated Drive from Harmonic Drive

DCS HarmonicDrive FHA 1 400

November 12, 2021

 

The FHA-C mini Series is a family of extremely compact actuators that deliver high torque with exceptional accuracy and repeatability. As part of the FHA-C mini family, an integrated servo drive version utilizing CANopen® communication is now available. This evolutionary product eliminates the need for an external drive and greatly improves writing while retaining high-positional accuracy and torsional stiffness in a compact housing. This new mini actuator product is ideal for use in robotics. 

Since it communicates via CANopen, only 4 conductors are needed: CANH, CANL, +24VDC, 0VDC. A single-turn 14bit (16384 cpr) gear output sensing encoder has been integrated along with a single-turn 15bit (32768 cpr) motor input sensing encoder providing a true absolute encoder that does not require a battery within 360° of rotation of the output. Typical multi-turn encoders monitoring the motor input shaft require a battery to store the current position when power is lost to the system; however, the dual absolute encoders overcome this need. In other words, No Battery Required. When power is restored, the actuator knows its position.

Key Features:

  • Actuator + Integrated Servo Drive utilizing CANopen communication
  • 24VDC Nominal +7 to 28VDC Supply Voltage Range
  • Single Cable with only 4 conductors needed: CANH, CANL, +24VDC, 0VDC
  • Zero Backlash
  • Dual Absolute Encoders
  • Panel Mount Connectors with 4 exit options
  • Output Sensing Encoder 14bit (16384 cpr) resolution
  • Input Sensing Encoder 15bit (32768 cpr) resolution
  • Control Modes Including Torque, Velocity, and Position Control, CSP, CSV, CST
  • Harmonic Drive HDL Software for initial tuning, commissioning, and analysis

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.
