CeleraMotion Omni Plus400x275Celera Motion has announced it expanded its innovative direct drive motor platform, the Omni+ series. The series is designed for optimal system integration with several axial lengths and winding options, including a new size – the Omni+ 100 mm.

“The Omni+ Series delivers a ‘magic combination’ of motion smoothness and high torque density while offering an ideal form factor,” said Mike Mainvielle, vice president of product management and marketing at Celera Motion. “The motor kits are easy to integrate into a wide variety of applications, including surgical robots, satellite communications and collaborative robots. We’re very pleased to see so many companies embracing all that the Omni+ Series has to offer.”

The Omni+ series motors are designed to provide higher torque density and ultra-low cogging, resulting in smooth motion, lower power dissipation and decreased temperature rise, Celera said. The technology provides high speeds and accelerations with “superior mechanical stiffness,” which reduces settling time and increases system performance and throughput.

Other benefits of the Omni+ Series include:

  • A new electromagnetic design that delivers “elite torque density” in a compact form factor;
  • A large ID-to-OD ratio for easier routing of cables, optics and other system elements;
  • Size compatibility with common strain wave gears and a wide range of motor drives, enabling simpler integration;
  • Minimal cogging for more accurate and smooth motion;
  • Custom windings and form factors to meet a designer’s application requirements.

Celera said the Omni+ series can fit into geared robotic joints, direct drive rotary stages or actuator applications for better utilization of space. Applications include surgical robotics, exoskeletons and wearables, satellite communications, unmanned aerial vehicle gimbals, and collaborative robots.

In addition to the Omni+ 100, 60 mm and 70 mm sizes are available, with more sizes planned, Celera said. For details about the Omni+ Series, which was initially introduced in 2020, visit this Celera Motion website.
