Moog Animatics Introduces the
Low Temperature Range (LTR) SmartMotor

LTR Motor

Moog Animatics is pleased to announce the release of its new, Low Temperature Range (LTR) SmartMotor in two standard NEMA frame sizes, model SM17205M-LTR (the “LTR-17”) and model SM23165M-LTR (the “LTR-23”). Both motors have been meticulously engineered for robust and reliable operation in extremely frigid environments and at high altitudes.[1]

To achieve this, onboard internal heaters ensure that the motors can start up in temperatures below -40 degrees C. Along with this, other design changes allow these motors to withstand random vibrations up to 6 G RMS, 10-2000 Hz, and standard IP sealing protects the motors from condensation.[2]

These motors come equipped with additional features, such as:

  • Four 5V TTL sourcing inputs (17-frame); three 5V TTL sourcing inputs (23-frame)
  • IP62 sealed (17-frame); IP65 sealed with optional IP67 sealing (23-frame)[3]
  • RS-422 differential communication
  • FAA approved, click fit connector (17-frame)

Plus, the LTR models include Class 5 SmartMotor features, such as

  • Integrated drive and controller
  • Position, Velocity or Contouring mode
  • Encoder commutation with trapezoidal, advanced trapezoidal and sine commutation modes
  • Powerful Basic like command language with over 200 operators: motion, IO, program flow, data handling, math, communications
  • Nonvolatile program and data storage
  • And much more

Only the Moog Animatics LTR-17 and LTR-23 motors allow you to have SmartMotor capability in a fully integrated, IP-sealed package specifically designed for extremely low temperature and high altitude applications.

Contact Moog Animatics today for more details on how the new LTR SmartMotor will simplify development, reduce cost and get your low temperature and high altitude applications to market ahead of the competition.
