This application guide provides the user details with the objective of successfully getting the KBM frameless motor to commutate correctly with the AKD drive.

Hello,

I am trying to figure out what KBM motor fits my needs. I am analyzing motor's characteristics and motor's performance curve.

Please help me to understand:

1) What "Max Static Friction", "Cogging Friction", "Viscous Damping" for frameless motor is?

To prevent corrosion, the hall sensor printed circuit boards (PCB's) of KBM motors are conformal coated.

Application Note: Motor-Phasing/Wiring: Preferred Standard

S300 & S700-drive to KBM(s) frameless motor – series.

Application Note: Motor-Phasing/wiring: non-standard, S300 or S700 - positive feedback count with a CW rotation as viewed from the lead exit end, for KBM(s) motor.

After the motor and winding designation have been selected, the motor design should be incorporated in the layout phase of the mechanical design. A frameless brushless type motor may be either totally frameless, framed with an armature adapter machined to fit the customer’s existing shaft, or partially housed with a mounting flange or tabs for mounting the stator. 

The minimum ambient operating temperature, for the KBM, KBMS, TBM, and TBMS series motors is -40 degrees C.

Does Kollmorgen have best mounting practices for the KBM and TBM frameless motors? This would be good information to put on this site.
