Pittman® Series 8000 Brush DC Motors Feature Skewed Armatures To Minimize Cogging
PITTMAN® brand Series 8000 brush-commutated DC motors feature 7-slot skewed armatures designed to minimize magnetic cogging (reluctance torque) even at low speeds, which promotes their smooth and quiet operation. This family of brush DC motors offers performance, reliability, and long life for a wide range of power applications in industries such as data storage, medical/biotech, semiconductor, and automation, among others.
PITTMAN Series 8000 motors are available in three lengths (2.070", 2.445", and 2.915") and can achieve peak torques up to 16.8 oz-in and speeds up to 10,650 RPM for standard motors at rated voltages. Speed, voltage, current, and torque characteristics can be varied to meet specific application needs.
Commutators are diamond turned after armature assembly to promote optimum concentricity and long brush life. Windings are resin-impregnated for greater reliability in incremental motion applications. Copper graphite brushes are standard.
Modular construction enables these motor products to be customized with alternate brush materials, encoders, timing belt pulleys, brakes, cables, connectors, modified shafts, and RFI suppression or other special configurations to meet application requirements.
