Frequently Asked Questions
Genesis direct drive motors are compatible with most industry-standard servo drives. We have verified compatibility with at least one model from each of the following manufacturers.
- Bosch Rexroth
- Rockwell Automation
- Schneider Electric
- STXi Motion
Drive compatibility is generally limited by the encoder communication protocols supported. Please contact the drive manufacturer for compatibility details.
- EnDat 2.2
- HIPERFACE DSL®
- One cable technology, with HIPERFACE DSL®
The holding torque of the brake is 18 Nm. The brake engages as soon as power is cutoff.
Cogging torque is typically less than 5% of continuous torque.
LDD Series motors are rated at 30,000 hours lifetime. This is significantly higher than a typical gearbox which is rated at 20,000 hours lifetime.
LDD Series housings are finished with a black anodized coating.
- Pole or pole-pair dount
- Rated current
- Line-to-line resistance
- Line-to-line inductance
- Encoder communication protocol
For more information of motor specifications, go to LDD specifications.
LDD Series motors offer higher torque-to-length with a 50% reduction in length which decreases machine footprint. They are slightly larger in diameter (180mm vs. 110-130mm) and slightly heavier (10-15kg vs. 8-12kg) than some servo motor and gearbox combinations.
- reducing the overall size of the joint;
- offering a large through-hole for cable routing;
- and removing the need for additional mechanical components that introduce resonances and instability to a system. For example, flexible couplings.
