(single-phase 200-240V, 50/60Hz to 2.2 kW)
three-phase 380-480V, 50/60Hz) Torque 2 Nm to 100 Nm Speed 1 rpm to 6000 rpm
SERVO Motors & Drives
The range of Lafert brushless servomotors is one of the most complete
available on the market, with nominal torques ranging from 0.30 Nm to 150
Nm. Direct Drive is a range covering torques from 8 Nm to 1000 Nm.
The family of drives and speciality electronics are particularly versatile
to provide the perfect partner when designing automated industrial machines.
Among the few independent manufacturers of servo motors
in the market, Lafert can supply a wide range of standard and tailor made
products for Industrial Automation.
The whole manufacturing process is integrated within Lafert manufacturing
facilities, giving an excellent flexibility to specific market demands, as
well as a high level of cost-efficiency.

Standard Drives 230/480 Vac: Micro Drive Series: output currents up to 15/30 Arms-drive 4 to 24 Nm Power Box Series: output currents up to 15/30 Arms-drive 8 to 24 Nm Maxi Drive Series: output currents up to 60/100 Arms-drive 40 to 80
started out as the result of a specific customer's need to drive motors
inside radio-operated motor vehicles, monorail cars and most common
applications powered by standard battery voltage (48Vdc, 72Vdc, 96 Vdc).
Such drives allow the controlling of low-voltage brushless motors and
coupling 2 drives in closed speed/position loop.
with particular hardware and software personalization that integrates
complex and performing functions inside.
The LIFT range allows the manufacturing of systems where the traction
machine is inside the elevator shaft, so there is no need for a machine
room, with obvious space and cost savings and a more rational layout of the
LIFT is permanent-magnet gearless synchronous machine with torque up to 660
Nm for systems up to 1,275 kg.
The compact and heavy-duty motor comes with the following features:
* Very small dimensions
* High Efficiency
* High comfort
* No maintenance
* Low noise level
