Hollow Core Linear Voice Coil Motors
motors, having a large axial hole throughout the entire coil and body
structure are ideal
for optical focusing, scanning and other precision positioning
applications requiring an axial opening through the motor.
Linear DC Motors, Voice Coil Motors (VCM) or Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)
are the simplest type of electric motors. These motors consist of two
separate parts; the magnetic housing and the coil. Applying a voltage
across the terminals of the motor causes the motor to move to one
direction. Reversing the polarity of the applied voltage will move the
motor to the opposite direction. The generated force is proportional to
the current that flows through the motor coil. This force is almost
constant in the specified stroke range of the motor.
Voice coil motors do not need commutation and using a position sensor,
positioning accuracies of less than one micron or 0.00004 inches are
The non-commuted motor construction increases reliability. The direct
coupling of the motor to the load allows for fast acceleration /
deceleration and high speed operation.
A customer supplied linear bearing is required to support the moving
This motor may be used in conjunction with a position sensor and a
motion controller for accurate positioning.
For proper heat sinking the motor may need to be installed on a metallic
