POSITION Control lineup > Cored motor

Product Overview

The most basic product group of mightyZAP with Position control feature
Built-in drive circuit, position sensor, DC motor and gear box
Reasonable price compared to the Force control product lineup
Suitable for customers who do not need force and speed control
Stall force and speed adjustment within a limited range by adjusting the motor operating rate
12mm diameter cored motor lineup
     – The coreless motor is superior to the cored motor in terms of force and durability.
26mm stroke
Rated Load of 6N, 12N according to gear ratio for each stroke
     – Speed ​​is inversely proportional to Rated Load, so the stronger the Rated Load, the slower the speed.
Support RS-485 or TTL / PWM communication
     – TTL / PWM communication version operates by automatically recognizing the input TTL / PWM signal.
     – When using PWM communication, only the position command is available while feedback data cannot be received.

26mm Stroke Version

Standard Accessories

Hinge : Hinge is rotatable by 90 degree according to the mounting condition.
Without hinge, actuator can be mounted using IR-MB02 (for 26, 27mm stroke version) or IR-MB03(for 41/56/96mm stroke version) Metal brackets.
Also, IR-EB01 Rod end bearing is also one of mounting option. Please refer to the mounting manual for each accessory.
Rod-end tip and Socket-set screw can be used according to user’s need.
Or, user may apply their own rod-end tip(M3 standard). Make sure to put M3 nut before applying rod-end tip.
The M3 nut is a double nut concept for angle adjustment of rod-end tip mounting.
When mounting rod-end tip, make sure to fix the M3 nut and the rod-end tip by the tool(such as long nose) to set angle and to prevent the rod from turning together. (If not, it may cause damage to the product. The rod should not be turned all the time.)
