Brushless DC Motor System

March 1, 2006
The BLF series brushless DC motor system adopts a new design for its motor, gearhead and driver. High-performance speed control is achieved with an increased speed range of 80 to 4,000 rpm.

The BLF series driver introduces a detachable digital operator unit that serves both as a data input unit and a digital display that can be used up to 16.4 feet away from the installed driver. The user can program 8 separate speed levels. Each speed can be set in units of 1 rev. per minute, with separate acceleration and deceleration values. Detec- tion of various motor and driver error functions, including overload, overvoltage, low-voltage, missing phase, overspeed and overcurrent, will immediately stop the motor and output an alarm signal. The BLF brushless DC motors are available in 30 watt (BLF230A), 60 watt (BLF460A) and 120 watt (BLF5120A) versions. The BLF series is IP65 rated.
