Industrial motors and drives

A range of STOBER motors including Synchronous Servo Motors, Lean Motors and Asynchronous Motors for all types of mechanical power transmissions in automation and motion control. A range of STOBER motors including Synchronous Servo Motors, Lean Motors and Asynchronous Motors for all types of mechanical power transmissions in automation and motion control. Synchronous Servo Motors - With the EZ and EZHD synchronous servo motors, STOBER is offering brushless, permanent magnet excited and electronically commutated motors with different power profiles. The stator and rotor components have an optimised design in relation to energy for extremely low torque ripple and a high power density in various forms. Lean Motors - Is an asynchronous motor too big and not efficient enough for you? Or are you looking for an inexpensive and rugged alternative to the synchronous servo motor? Based on the "Bridge the Gap" principle, STOBER has brought a new motor class to market. The consistently encoderless Lean Motors are strong and rugged, like asynchronous drives and precise and compact like synchronous servo motors. For example, the motors can be used for automation tasks in harsh production environments. Asynchronous Motors - Designed as asynchronous squirrel-cage motors, these asynchronous motors are characterised by their performance and robustness. The asynchronous motor is part of the STOBER geared motor system. Here they are attached directly to STOBER gear units without a disruptive adapter flange. A motor flange design according to IEC is also included in the program.

Machine safety

In co-operation with Pilz-Safe Automation, STOBER has designed a new SE6 safety module for their outstanding SD6 drive controller. For those using, or planning to specify the SD6 drive controller, the SE6 is a new module that’s easy to use and allows safe drive monitoring in safety-related applications up to SIL 3, PL e (category 4) in accordance with EN 61800-5-2 and EN ISO 13849-1. The low worst case response time of less than ten milliseconds enables fast stopping. One of its highlights is ‘safe brake management’, which consists of Safe Brake Control (SBC) and Safe Brake Test (SBT) with test cycle monitoring. "This enables the drive controller to fulfil the requirements of the soon to be released EN 16090-1 and is based on a publication of the German Social Accident Insurance (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung, or DGUV)”, explains STOBER’s Drive Controller Accessories product manager, Markus Frei. “The DGUV trade publication forms the basis for the draft standard DIN EN ISO 16090-1:2016-02, where the topic of protecting vertical axes is described in a standard for the first time." In addition to the Safe Torque Off (STO), Safe Stop 1 (SS1) and Safe Stop 2 (SS2) stop functions, SE6 also enables functions for safe movement and safe motion monitoring. The Safely Limited Speed (SLS) and Safe Speed Range (SSR) functions ensure that the drive does not exceed the configured velocity limit values. Safe Direction (SDI) monitors the configured direction of motion, and Safely Limited Increment (SLI) limits the increment reliably. Safe Operating Stop (SOS) monitors an active stop. No special motors, encoders, cables or stall or speed sensing switches required.

Power electronics

STOBER offers a wide range of highly versatile power electronics: Controllers - Motion control components for CODESYS programming and control software. By combining the motion controller MC6 with the drive controllers SD6 and SI6, STOBER provides the perfect blend of drive control and drive technology in a single modular software and hardware system. The synergy potential of this consistent system logic offers many opportunities for optimising automation and robotic applications. This enables highly complex and rapid motion sequences to be implemented smoothly and precisely. Drive controllers - The 6th generation series of STOBER drive controllers offers maximum precision and productivity for mechanical engineering and automation technology, and are designed for compatibility with ever more complex functions. Highly dynamic drives ensure the shortest recovery times from rapid changes in set value and load jumps. There is also an option of connecting the drive controllers in a DC intermediate circuit for multi-axis applications. This improves the energy footprint of the entire system. Cables: Ready-to-use cable assemblies - The quality of the cable connection between motor and drive controller affects the functional safety and endurance of a system axis. Using the recommended cables will ensure the optimised and electrically stable interaction of the connected components, as failure to follow these recommendations may affect warranty rights. Accessories - The STOBER world of electronics is complemented by a wide range of accessories. These include Safety Technology, Terminal Modules, Communication Modules, Quick DC-Links, Braking Resisters, Chokes and lots more.
