Superior Design

The ARA1000 utilizes large air-bearing surfaces for high stiffness and load capacity in a low profile design.

Cable management is simple and straight-forward with integral motor power and feedback connectors. Because the ARA1000 is a self-contained unit, it can be integrated easily into multi-stage stacks. Either a service loop or an integrated Aerotech cable management system (CMS) can be provided for a highly reliable solution.

Brushless Direct-Drive

To maximize positioning performance, the ARA1000 utilizes Aerotech’s S-series brushless, slotless motor. This motor has all of the advantages of a brushless direct-drive motor — no brushes to wear, no gear trains to maintain and high acceleration and high speeds. Since it is a slotless, ironless design, there is zero cogging, meaning that there is absolutely no torque ripple. This makes the ARA1000 ideal for applications requiring outstanding contoured motion or precise incremental steps. Zero backlash makes the ARA1000 the ideal solution for applications requiring frequent directional changes.

Accurate Positioning

Performance is assured with a 150-line-per-degree encoder that results in 0.012 arc sec resolution. The motor and high-performance rotary encoder are directly coupled to a common shaft.

Flexible Configurations

Aerotech manufactures a wide range of servo amplifiers and advanced controllers to provide a complete, integrated package.

Integration (Required)

Aerotech offers both standard and custom integration services to help you get your system fully operational as quickly as possible. The following standard integration options are available for this system. Please consult Aerotech if you are unsure what level of integration is required, or if you desire custom integration support with your system.

Option Description
-TASIntegration - Test as system
Testing, integration, and documentation of a group of components as a complete system that will be used together (ex: drive, controller, and stage). This includes parameter file generation, system tuning, and documentation of the system configuration.
-TAC Integration - Test as components
Testing and integration of individual items as discrete components that ship together. This is typically used for spare parts, replacement parts, or items that will not be used together. These components may or may not be part of a larger system.
