Dunkermotoren Launches BG 65 / BG 66 dMove Servomotors

Dienstag, Juli 31, 2018

Bonndorf, Germany – Dunkermotoren, GmbH, a unit of AMETEK Advanced Motion Solutions, continues to develop and refine its industry-leading product offering of brushless DC motor designs. Dunkermotoren’s latest development is the launch of BG 65/BG 66 dMove servomotors as successors to its leading BG 65(S) servomotor, which is among the most popular servomotors with completely integrated motor electronics.

The new BG 65/ BG 66 series has the same outward appearance as the BG 65 series with simple electronic controls. Those motors formerly designated “SI” motors are now called “dMove” and are mechanically interchangeable with previous versions.  Inside, the motors have completely new control electronics.

Already in I/O version, the electronic controls allow the assignment of functions to the digital inputs from simple speed control via analog inputs to fixed speeds via digital inputs or combinations of current and speed control.  Digital outputs also can be assigned to functions.

Along with the electronics upgrade, motor performance has been optimized to achieve higher output power. Taken together, these new features provide enhanced performance in a highly cost-effective package.

Compared with prior “SI” motors, the new motor series make it possible to integrate dMove motor versions as slaves in CANopen networks and to control them via profile CiA 402 or even simpler programming via Dunkermotoren quick start commands.

All operating functions, including positioning, speed and current, are available. Dunkermotoren offers versions of the new motors that are controlled via RS485 interfaces, and with newly developed Drive Assistant 5 software that allows the motors to be set up intuitively.

The dMove Series is suitable for a wide variety of applications that do not require a high-resolution encoder. However, for applications with higher resolution requirements, BG 65(S) PI, MI and CI Series motors are still available.
