MAC231 Stainless Steel Integrated Brushless DC Motor for OEM Machines
PRESS release: April 2023
Birkerød, Denmark - JVL A/S, one of the world’s leading producers in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors, has expanded its stainless steel integrated servo motors with a new member, the MAC231, with a continuous power of up to 320 W and peak power of 750 W.
Motors for harsh environments
JVL has developed a new addition to their Mini-MAC series, the MAC320. With its 320 W RMS power it is the most powerful integrated motor in the NEMA23 size.
The target application is high power positioning in a small all-in-one package.
Other new features mean that even with CANopen or Ethernet communications it is possible to have an ePLC™ (embedded PLC) program running in the background
New absolute multiturn encoder
A very important option is the new generation of absolute multiturn encoders, based on the Wiegand principle (harvesting principle) where no battery or gearing is required. The position range is ±262144 motor revolutions (±2^18).
- Double Power – but SAME Size as MAC101 (100 W)
- Very high torque-to-volume ratio
- Special DC brushless motor for OEM applications
- 750 W Peak Power based on Peak Torque from 0 to 3000 RPM
- Recommended supply voltage 48 VDC from PSU or battery
- Absolute multiturn encoder option. No battery or gear needed
- Use JVL standard expansion modules for Ethernet, CAN bus and PLC applications
- Option for STO connector
- Shaft Ø10 mm (Ø14mm w/gearbox) to handle higher torque and power
What is new?
- Absolute multiturn encoder based on harvesting technology w/o battery or gear
- Ethernet with high performance, similar to the larger MAC motor®s
- New MOSFET technology for higher efficiency and cooler motor
- Encoder resolution 8192 CPR (higher resolutions planned)
- Options: STO, Safe-Torque-Off
- More advanced FOC filter for lower noise and better motor performance
Not recommended for
- Applications requiring precise or smooth speed at low velocities due to the motor’s high cogging torque
- Applications requiring more than 320 W S3 at 25% duty cycle
If you use industrial Ethernet then functionality and handling is similar for all supported protocols: Profinet, EtherNet/IP, SERCOS, EtherCAT, Powerlink and Modbus TCP/UDP.
Using JVL’s universal software MacTalk® you can even change between the different Ethernet protocols just by making a firmware update—there is no extra charge and you can do it as many times as you like.
All Ethernet modules have built-in Ethernet-switch making cabling easy: you can daisy-chain Ethernet cables from motor-to-motor.
In stand-alone applications you will undoubtedly like our graphical programming environment ePLC™. Writing embedded PLC programs is very easy and can be done even by end-users. You do not have to be an experienced PLC programmer to make ePLC™ programs: the icon-based graphical programming environment does the job for you. Just click on the command icon you want and the program line is created for you.
Programming is similar for all integrated motor families: QuickStep®, ServoStep™ and MAC motor®.
No matter the number of I/O points in the actual motor, each digital input and output and analog input can be used in the program: you can query single or multiple input conditions and branch accordingly to other parts of your program. Motion commands are available with different kinds of relative or absolute movements. Jumps and IF commands, timers and other functions are also available as well as register calculations. All registers and parameters in the motor can be accessed and most can be changed if required.
Connect a suitable color touch operator panel (HMI) and the operators can key-in values and parameters to the motor as well as monitor operations.
