Introducing EAS series slides & EAC series cylinders

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Thu Jul 31, 2014 12:00 pm

Oriental Motor USA is pleased to announce the introduction of our EAS and EAC Series linear slides and cylinders. These new slides feature our AR Series motor and driver packages with AC or DC power inputs. Both actuator types feature the traditional Straight type design. With this introduction, Oriental Motor is excited to introduction is our Reversed Motor type, where the motor is reversed and parallel to the slide or cylinder. This allows for the maximum amount of space to be saved. Continuing our focus on value, both our Straight type and Reversed types slides and cylinders are priced the same. For vertical applications, our electromagnetic brake is a standard option.

New, is our space saving “Reversed Motor Type”, allowing a linear system to save space while delivering maximum performance. Maintenance is made simple through Oriental Motor’s unique belt tension system. Loosen the tension screw to easily replace the belt.

Also new in this series is the EAC cylinder type is the introduction of our Shaft with Guide Cover type, further simplifying and offering design engineer’s maximum flexibility.

The EAS and EAC Series actuators are priced aggressively, being 35% ~ 40% less (depending on model) than our current EZ series packages and by utilizing the AR Series motor and driver, are available with pulse type or our built-in program (stored data) type drivers allowing for maximum system configuration requirements. Use the improved MEXE02 data setting software (available for free download on our website) or the OPX-2A control Module to change parameters, utilize the monitoring functions or program the built-in controller driver. Lead-time is also quick, with up to 5 pieces being available in 8 business days.

By incorporating our popular AR Series technology and continuing our partnership with THK, this has allowed us to meet this challenge head on. Without sacrificing slide and cylinder performance, we were able to expand on the driver and motor functions and improve the ease of use. The AR Series allows for maximum linear performance regardless of speed and load, offering quick and responsive moves. We continue to utilize the THK LM Guide and since the high-accuracy LM Guide is directly installed in the enclosure base, these slides are suitable for applications which require a controlled traveling parallelism tolerance of (0.03mm).

The EAS and EAC Series linear slides and cylinders can work in traditional applications where step and direction are required or now in applications where PLC or Touch Screens (HMI) are being used, without the need for additional and expensive modules to the PLC. The end result is a more efficient and energy saving product available to more master controller types and control methods. An additional benefit of our built-in control type is reduced wiring for quicker set up time. The EAS and EAC Series linear slides and cylinders are part of our FLEX family of products.

Product specifications are the same as the EZ II slide and cylinder specifications with the exception of the moment loads (see brochure or website for details). Both the EAS Slider and EAC Cylinder feature THK components inside covered by our exterior structure.

For the EAS Slider type, up to 500 mm lengths are being offered. If longer strokes are needed, up to 850 mm, please contact Marketing. Also, there are two types of mounting configurations, X or Y. X features the traditional style and Y is for wall or horizontal mounting. Consider which type is best based on reducing foreign objects from entering the actuator.

Due to the motor being exposed (not covered in the slide as with our EZ II series), the orientation of the motor is flexible and can be rotated to configure the cable direction in 4 directions (3 for Reversed Motor Type).
