Hollow Rotary Actuator

Hollow Rotary Actuator

Oriental Motor offers our hollow rotary actuators featuring a large throughput hole for easy wiring or piping through the equipment. Equipment tables and arms can be installed directly on the output table. This saves you the hassle and cost of designing an installation mechanism, arranging necessary parts, adjusting the belt tension, etc. when mechanical parts such as belt and pulley are used for installation.

For system solutions requiring connection to an upper level controller, PLC or HMI, Oriental Motor offers several networked products to allow for easy control using I/O or RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) networks. Our AC & brushless DC motor speed control systems also simply and easily connect to upper level controls.

Hollow Rotary Actuators

The Hollow Rotary Actuators allow large-inertia discs from an index table or arms to be installed directly on the output table. This saves you the hassle and cost of designing an installation mechanism, arranging necessary parts, etc. when mechanical parts such as belt and pulley are used for installation. The hollow output table has a large diameter opening which helps reduce the complexity of wiring and piping thus simplifying your equipment design.

Networked - I/ O, RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) and Factory Automation Index Table Applications

Oriental Motor offers Network products under the FLEX concept, meaning each product is equipped with an interface that connects to various master controllers featuring I/O, RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) or Factory Automation. Networked products enable operating data and parameters for each motor to be set at a Master Controller and sent to each driver. In addition, operation commands can be input send set using various communication methods to meet the need of a wide range of available Network Solutions.

Available Network Solutions

1. I/O - Allows the driver to be connected directly to a controller or PLC to configure the operating system with I/O.

2. RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) - Operating data and parameters can be set and operation commands can be input using RS-485 communication. Up to 31 drivers can be connected to each serial communication module. Also there is a function that enables the simultaneous start of multiple axes. The protocol supports Modbus (RTU), enable connection with devices such as a touch screen (HMI) or PCs.

3. Factory Automation Network - Use of a network converter (sold separately) enables support with CC-Link, MECHATROLINK or EtherCAT communication. Operating data and parameters can be set and operation commands can be input using various communication methods.

For Connecting to Factory Automation (FA) Networks

Network Converter

Network Gateways

The communication protocol of the master controller, Factory Automation (FA) network, is converted to Oriental Motor's own RS-485 communication protocol. Connection to FLEX-compatible products is completed with one RS-485 communication cable.
