HT35 Motorht35 motor

The HT is a new revolutionary high torque brushless DC motor. Compared to other brushless motors, the HT Motor has a flat torque–speed curve meaning that the speed is less influenced when the torque is increased. The secret to that is found how the magnetic circuit is built. A combination of SMAC’s patent pending Halbach magnets and printed coil technology achieves higher torque/amp.

Most small motors run at high RPMs but have low torque. These are not well fitted for robotic applications. Expensive and heavy gears are required to get to the required torque. Higher currents and/or voltages are needed to get useful torques.


VLC (Very Low Cost) ControllerVLC Controller

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators has announced release of their next generation Very Low Cost (VLC) single axis DC brushed/brushless motor controller/driver. With a price of $250 for stand-alone ($200 for built in types), the VLC represents another 35% drop in price compared to many of the company’s previous controllers with no loss in features/functionality. This enables SMAC to compete with older technology such as pneumatic cylinders and electric ball screws and attract new OEM applications.
SMAC’s VLC product line is designed and built by SMAC in the United States. Since SMAC controls the development, it can adjust the product to specific design and market/customer needs. These efficiencies result in a considerable cost-savings to the end customer.
The VLC - with its compact size and flexible shape capability - can be easily added to virtually all SMAC actuators. This is important because of the trend to combine actuators with controllers which eliminates cables and the need for space in control cabinets on machines.
Key features:
  • Enables direct control features with the built-in version.
  • A built-in controller to the actuator eliminates connection failures.
  • Same programming language as LAC1, using free programming software
  • Very compact with 3 amp continuous and 6 amp peak driver (24/48 volts DC). 
  • Physical shape can be adjusted to fit specific space limitations. (MCA built inside versions already use this feature.)
  • Expanded versions coming soon to include built-in Ethernet interfaces (Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT), expanded I/O, and adding a 2nd axis (grippers, linear/rotators control).

LCA6 Series Linear Actuator

At 6mm wide, the LCA6 is the thinnest linear actuator in our line of products . The LCA6 is cross roller guided, increasing accuracy. Flat coils are centered between cross rollers so deflection load is reduced and rigidity is increased. In addition, the LCA6 is small and stackable, conserving space.
