DVR technology is able to brake electronically.
Industrial companies have long wished for a motor's ability to step and brake. DVR is able to perform as DVR Technology Develoment's in-house testing shows.
DVR has a huge potential in terms of industrial automation. DVR Technology Developments can customize an industrial application simply and afordably with a package that not only has on board computing power but can easily interface with additional sensors.
The DVR motor is digital, just like a computer. It can save and store speed information on different preset settings and switch from one to another immediately, with just the single press of a button. This smart technology can also detect the input power resource, giving the DVR motor the ability to operate at a variety of different voltages (100v to 240v) and without further modifications being required.
POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT:
The DVR’s micro-computer automatically detects the load on the output shaft, and adjusts power extraction according to the load. As a result, the DVR motor has its highest torque at lowest speed and has a flatter torque curve over a wide range of speeds.
This unique characteristic means the DVR motor can be mounted directly to the output shaft, which allows it to achieve better output by eliminating the power lost in a traditional gears/belts and pulley drive system. (Typically, a belt driven machine has about 20% power loss just in the belt system alone!) When the shaft is under a light load, the micro-computer will reduce the power extraction to save energy. Combine this with the energy saving from eliminating the belt and pulley system, and the DVR motor can save at least 50 % energy over a conventional AC motor.
EXTENSIVE SPEED RANGE:
A key advantage of this motor is its wide speed range. DVR Motor Technology has the capability to handle speeds from as little as 100rpm, right through 10,000rpm, all in a versatile, compact package. (AC motor with inverter is only optimized at 1,500rpm).
The DVR motor is constantly monitored by the micro-computer. In case of a sudden spindle lock, or unexpected sharp increas in load, the motor will automatically shut down power to the spindle to avoid any injury. There is further potential with this DVR motor to implement many more safety features determined by each customer's requirements.
Our standard DVR motor will be able to be used unmodified for many different applications straight off the shelf. But our DVR Motor Technology can also be customized to suit your individual requirements. Adjustments such as Power Rating, Human Machine Interface (HMI), Speed Range, Safety Features, and much more.
The Teknatool International group has already been researching and using this motor technology for over 10 years. Sold as a wood lathe motor under the reputable NOVA brand name, the DVR motor has had proven success in dusty and demanding conditions in all kinds of environments in all corners of the globe; from freezing Alaska and Iceland, to tropical Australia and Central America.
