Press Release Summary:
Series LEU consists of brushless linear motors, producing up to 26 lb of peak force, with overall width of 18 mm. Ironless core design provides smooth motion since there are no winding laminations to produce cogging. Models LEU-15 and LEU-30 feature 15 mm and 30 mm coil heights, respectively, and are each available with coil lengths of 35, 65, and 95 mm. Both models are supported by 4 magnet channels in lengths of 60, 90, 150, and 300 mm.

ANORAD CORPORATION's New Zero Cog Miniature Motors Are Ideal For Small Stage Applications
Jun 29, 2004
Rockwell Automation, Anorad brand, has introduced a new series of miniature motors to its already extensive portfolio of high performance brushless linear servo motor products.
The LEU Series is an ironless core, brushless linear motor producing up to 26 lbs. (117 N) of peak force with an overall width of just 18mm. The LEU motors are offered in two coil heights, the LEU-15, (15mm) and the LEU-30 (30mm). The LEU Series has six coil sizes of 35mm, 65mm, and 95mm long for the LEU-15 and LEU-30 models which are supported by four magnet channels in lengths of 60mm, 90mm, 150mm, and 300mm.
The LEU's ironless core design provides ultra smooth motion since there are no iron winding laminations to produce cogging. The small coil and magnet track foot print makes the LEU readily adaptable for moving coil or magnet stage designs to reduce cable loading and cable wear. The LEU's compact size makes it the ideal motor for high precision and compact stage applications such as miniature parts handling systems and precision pick-and-place machines. Anorad, the inventor of the brushless linear servo motor, continues to push the performance envelope for size, performance, and quality with our over 25 years of linear motor experience.
