Exlar offers motors with three standard interconnect options which allows you to operate your motor with almost any brushless amplifier on the market. For maximum space efficiency, embedded leads offer a low profile convenient connection. One meter or cable extends from the motor for the user to interconnect. This embedded lead option can also be provided with MS style plugs on the lead ends. This gives the advantage of embedded leads with the convenience of MS connectors. Exlar can also provide motors with MS connectors on the motor housing.
Cable and Connector Selection
Below are links to tables with cable part numbers for operation of your SLM/G Series motors with both Exlar’s and other manufacturers’ servo drives.
The “C/P” connector option on the SLM/G Series provides for a motor with Exlar’s standard MS style connectors, compatible with Exlar’s standard cables.
The “M” connector option on the SLM/G Series provides for a motor configured with connectors that allows the end user to purchase the feedback cables from the manufacturer of their servo amplifier, thus eliminating the headaches and confusion that can arise from power and feedback wiring.
Depending on motor size, voltage, and cable availability from the amplifier manufacturer, some cables must be obtained from Exlar.
For amplifier manufacturers who use standard style military connectors, with molded and shielded cables, the feedback cable can be purchased from the amplifier manufacturer, and the power cable purchased from Exlar. The Exlar power cables with the PCx-MC-xxx model numbers are molded and shielded and provide a good match with the cables provided by the amplifier manufacturer.
For some amplifier manufacturers who utilize a different style of connector, when the “M” option is available from Exlar, both the connectors will be configured to allow the feedback and power cables to be purchased from the amplifier manufacturer. Consult Exlar for details on all connector configurations.
