The integrated drive motor are ready to start on the machine without the need to configure. Please refeer to NiLAB Starter Software for start-up the motor.
Motor parameter / Servo driver parameterization: The integrated linear motor is provided with parameter data: nominal current, peak current, pole pitch, force constant, etc.. stored inside the integrated drive flash memory. If the end user would like to change these parameters (for example the peak current) must contact NiLAB to have the instruction and the pass code.
Servo drive optimization: the optimization procedure inside the controller/driver (control loop tuning) is possible using the controller configuration window inside NiLAB Starter Windows Software (Link: NiLAB Starter ).
Encoder polarity and calibration: the integrated encoder (SIN/COS 1Vpp) is calibrated and tested in production. The SIN/COS encoder signal can be visualized using the Scope window inside the NiLAB Starter Sofwtare.
Commutation adjustment: this value is calculated and stored inside the integrated drive memory during the production and test procedure.
Before starting up the drive please follow this check list, Respect all safety instruction and notes below:
|Danger to life, heavy injury or damage by failure or malfunction on mechanical or electrical components!
Risk of injury or danger to life, as well as damage due to nonconformity of warning and safety notes!
For general startup procedure of integrated drive motors please refer to NiLAB Starter Software section.
Integrated drive linear motors are maintenance free components but due to external influences the motor can be damaged during operation. This result in preventive maintenance of the motors with service intervals on machine side checking all parts involved:
Suggested maintenance schedule for applications
|PHASE||LESS THAN 150 MOV/MIN||FROM 150 TO 300 MOV/MIN||MORE THAN 300 MOV/MIN|
|After 3 months||Check||Check|
|After 6 months||Check||Check||Check|
Please consider the following checklist:
1) Is the motor shaft clean?
2) May the motor shaft slide freely?
If the above conditions are not met, please proceed with the cleaning.
It is recommended not to use solvents, kerosene or similar products and to consider the following checklist:
1) Remove the shaft from the motor body dismounting the stop ring at the ends.
2) Clean the shaft with alcohol and a soft cloth.
3) Clean the internal parts of the motor body with compressed air to remove contaminants.
Instructions for lubrication
The polymer sliding bearings are lubrication free bearing. So, there is no need of use of lubricants.
