Servo Motor Actuators from Harmonic Drive® have many superior performance features including zero backlash, high accuracy, fast response time, high vacuum compatibility, and are available in a wide range of sizes, and hollow shaft designs. These electromechanical servo actuators are easy to use and offer quick implementation. They are compatible with most industry-standard controllers and amplifiers. Servo actuators are an assembly of a brush or brushless servo motor, zero backlash Harmonic Drive® strain wave gear, and a high capacity output bearing. These elements are contained within the housing.
The new SHA-SG Series brushless servo-actuator provides the highest torque density of any actuator in its class. Positional accuracy better than 1 arc-min and ±5 arc-sec repeatability is achieved while delivering up to 30,000 in-lb of torque. A robust cross-roller bearing allows mounting of large loads directly to the actuator without additional support. The SHA Series actuator also features a compact, hollow shaft configuration that allows design versatility for demanding applications. Features include:
Hollow-shaft: Inside diameter up to 65mm
Flat design: actuator length is shorter than its outside diameter
Torque to Volume Ratio: more than 5 times that of a direct drive motor
Output Torque: up to 3400 Nm
Output bearing, gear reduction and motor winding specification to suit your needs.
17bit magnetic absolute encoder
It is also available to order as a “motor only”
Now available with hollow shaft planetary gear option - HPF series Harmonic Planetary® - for higher output speeds
New Smaller SHA20A is now available
New option - low voltage winding, 48V DC to 90V DC available for same sizes
The SHA-CG Series high precision actuators are a great alternative for direct drive motors. SHA-CG actuators offer direct drive motor performance in a compact, significantly lighter package. Ideal for high precision rotary applications such as indexing turn tables, the SHA-CG offers improved rotary positioning accuracy with surface runout less than 10 microns. Features include
Alternative to Direct Drive Motors
High Accuracy Output Bearing
Available with Mounting Base
Hollow Shaft Design
Available in 4 sizes
Connects directly with Mitsubishi Electric's MELSERVO-J4 SSCNET/H
Connects directly with Sigma7 servo drives from Yaskawa
The FHA-C IP65 Series servo actuators are available in four sizes: 17, 25, 32 and 40. The IP65 rated FHA-C actuator is ideal for harsh environments. With IP65 and 480V, the FHA actuator is well suited for machine tool, packaging, and wash-down applications. These rotary servo actuators utilize Harmonic Drive® precision strain wave gears combined with a performance matched brushless servo motor. Encoder options now include EnDat® & HIPERFACE®. The FHA has a low-profile form factor and features a hollow-output shaft. This hollow shaft feature may be used to pass cables, tubing or lasers through the axis of rotation.
The FHA series is designed to operate with a wide range of third-party servo drives including Bosch, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and Kollmorgen. REL Driver also compatible at approximately half speed.
The FHA-C Mini Series is a family of extremely compact Hollow Shaft Actuators that deliver high torque with exceptional accuracy and repeatability. The actuator combines a high precision Harmonic Drive® gear component with a pancake brushless servo motor. An incremental or multi-turn absolute encoder is integrated to provide high resolution velocity and position feedback. The large cross roller output bearing allows heavy loads to be mounted directly to the actuator without the need for additional support. Features include:
Available with an Incremental or multi-turn absolute encoder
Robust cross roller output bearing supports high loads
High torque/weight and torque/volume ratio
